pitu / priti/ shammy reviewed on 2010-02-03 at 05:07:11Z

Back from Ishqiya. Decent but suffers from the Curse Of The Second Half. Still, Arshad Warsi = Awesome.

Upal Pradhan reviewed on 2010-02-03 at 05:01:02Z

Ishqiya: V Varadwaj style drama-love n crime on a shady backdrop wit look n feel of Omkara n typical Bwood ending. Climax the only letdown

Harshad Potdar reviewed on 2010-02-03 at 05:00:12Z

Ishqiya - raw, dark humour, awsm performances by all 3, superb dialog, catchy songs..go watch

Ishqiya is a well made film by a new director. Gripping, entertaining and good acting. Not fascinating though. Had a Tarentino style ending!

Real people: just two words to define Ishqiya.Good job!

If u wanna see something on serious topic than go for RANN otherwise for comedy ISHQIYA is better choice

Half of Ishqiya remaining ... the first half was not bad at all ... extremely witty dialogues ... !!

Abhishek Choubey' s ISHQIYA is mesmerising; a must watch

Shailesh Kapoor reviewed on 2010-02-02 at 07:54:22Z

If Ishqiya has indeed surpassed the box office of Rann as I' ve been told, I' m very happy for it. Shows the power of good content :)

Adarsh Sharma reviewed on 2010-02-02 at 07:52:08Z

Ishqiya and Rann were both " could have been gr8" movies...sadly both were ordinary...though Ishqiya wud b y vote for better among d 2...

hey catch Ishqiya its gud

Rajarshi Chanda reviewed on 2010-02-02 at 06:36:42Z

Ishqiya - a Tarantino film based in rural India with brilliant performances from the lead trio - definitely worth a watch!

Gauravv Jain reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 05:24:40Z

Ishqiya was more colorful and less complicated than Kaminey.

Pradeep Purushottam reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 05:14:12Z

Watched Ishqiya over the weekend and realised its the best movie so far in this year :-)

sonia poddar reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 05:11:35Z

You an adult who can handle some choicest & colouful words in desi language ? sport a sense of humor too ? then you got to watch Ishqiya !!

paritosh sharma reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 05:06:41Z

Me toh loved it!! Ishqiya

Sanjeev Agrawal reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 05:00:33Z

2 offbeat movies last week! Ishqiya wins hands down! Vishal is good. Also, it was tighter (read shorter) compared to Rann.

Epic dialogs of Vishal Bhardwaj Ishqiya are becoming as popular as dialogs of Mahabharat..but tickr still loves shikhandi :p

Ok my rating to rann 2.5 n ishquiya 4 out of 5.

Mehool Parekh reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 04:38:07Z

Saw Ishqiya last evening - ratings are largely undeserved - better than ordinary but underwhelming never the less - too much expectation

Mayank Upadhyay reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 04:36:49Z

Morning All, Enjoyed a Gr8 Sunday.. with Ishqiya worth enough to watch for Nasseer Arshad n Vidya' s acting... matlab ki Paisa Vasool

Ishqiya is a nice watchable movie!!!!!

Sharan Sharma reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 04:27:32Z

What did you think of Ishqiya? I just saw the film. Not too impressed. Arshad was outstanding... very few high points overall

Sharat Sreenivas reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 04:26:21Z

ISHQIYA was real good and Vidya acting in it was really great..

Sharan Sharma reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 04:26:20Z

Ishqiya takes way too long to get going. The movie picks up post interval but once again falls flat at the end.

Suman reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 04:23:26Z

Watched ' Ishqiya' on friday - 2nd show - Carnatic. Everyone wnt like it. It depends on your taste. 4 me it was OK. Vidya Balan was good :-)

Abhay Kelkar reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 04:08:36Z

Disaapointed to some extent with Rann & Ishkiya.. Vidya balan has done her best but absolute miscast. Give me Nadita Das please.

Riju Mahna reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 03:54:50Z

But the good part is ...Saw 1 good and 1 awsome movie!!! Ishqiya being the former and Rann the latter.....Amitabh outshines the dud of Paa

Prabhu Salimath reviewed on 2010-02-01 at 03:43:53Z

I think Rann was better than 2/5 :)

Raakesh Thayyil reviewed on 2010-01-31 at 23:59:35Z

Ishqiya -catch the movie. Quirky, funny, half-serious at times. Vishal Bhardwaj' s got the pulse of eastern UP, sensitive ears may avoid.

Ishqiya is bloody brilliant. Infused with dark humor, its works as a road film, a peek into the Hindi heartland and as a love story.

Ishqiya worth a single watch if you understand rural hindi and if you discount the last 15 mins

TTarunTTej reviewed on 2010-01-30 at 03:51:26Z

Ishqiya lacked the punch at the end which the movies of this genre normally offer.

WearetheMovies.com reviewed on 2010-01-30 at 03:19:08Z

ISHQIYA is a fun-filled ride, a rustic Bollywood western: short, to the point. Arshad Warsi & Vidya Balan steal the show.
