A loose script, below par acting and cliched romantic scenes, Ishqedarriyaan is a love saga that will bore you for two long hours! The film despite starting on a good note, loses grip after the first fifteen minutes. Majorly shot at the picturesque locations of Himachal Pradesh, the film paints a beautiful canvas with its brilliant cinematography, only to be let down by the story. The characters are not well-defined and lacks finesse. Plus, an overdose of emotional drama in significant parts of the film will leave you irked! However, the edgy dialogues and captivating soundtrack is the only saving grace.
Speaking of the story, the plot delves into the life of globally-acclaimed businessman, Agam Divan (Mahaakshay Chakraborty). He returns to India when he learns about his father’s dark past, only to befriend a beautiful young teacher, Luvleen (Evelyn Sharma). He falls in love with her, but she is already in love with someone else. What follows later is a journey of love, drama and sacrifice.
The film significantly focuses on Mahaakshay Chakraborty, who makes a comeback after two years. With his character undergoing various spectrum of emotion, the upcoming actor puts forth a commendable performance. His co-star, Evelyn Sharma looks gorgeous. Known for her glamorous avatars, she nails the plain Jane look perfectly. However, bad dubbing and her over-dramatic expressions will make you cringe in annoyance. And lastly, debutante Mohit Dutta who plays the third wheel is quite a catch. The good looking man does make his presence felt.
Overall, Ishqedarriyaan is a romantic tale that is sweet and simple. Though the banality of the script is a major let down, the film does have its mushy and heart-warming moments.
Why you should watch this film?
If you are a die-hard fan of hardcore romance, drama and emotions, then Ishqedarriyaan is the film for you!
