'Ishqiyaa' is a black comedy classic. Khalujan and Babban make for an astounding couple, as does their chemistry alongside the wonderful Vidya Balan, who owns the running time mostly.
Abhishek Chaubey has well-crafted the film and his directorial debut is assured because of the precision with which the rustic to tonality and sex has been captured. The film gathers steam, grit and magic, and does on the screens what most filmmakers don't succeed in doing. I, for one, laughed till my sides hurt.
How I wished that the film had the energy of the rest of the film geared in third act! How can an almost classic film lose all of it's steam in a final act! Nevertheless, this is one of the best Hindi films, and don't miss it.
Liked It.. Vidya Is Lovely, Naseer Is Great
