Meet Hyderabad ki tez Gulrez (Parineeti Chopra) and Lucknow ka aashiq Tariq (Aditya Roy Kapur) in a love story from Yash Raj Films` kitchen,

A shoe-sales girl, disillusioned with love because of her encounters with dowry-seeking men and a cook, who can charm anybody with the aroma and flavors of his biryani and kebabs, come face to face in the clash of diametrically opposite but equally spicy cultures of Hyderabad and Lucknow.

In her quest to find her Mr. Universe, she comes up against ``Big Boss Hyderi Kebab`` and in the process of arriving at a ``tuning-setting``, Gullu and Taru rewrite traditional recipes of love, crush old-fashioned world-views and make their own masaledaar albeli pichchar... a deliciously romantic Daawat-e-Ishq!

There have been very few love stories from the kitchens of Bollywood. When zaikedaar food comes together with a heart-warming story, we get the perfect foodie film. And in India, food and films go hand-in-hand. But Daawat-e-Ishq can`t be termed as the best gastronomic-cum-cinematic dabba you ever had. Daawat-e-Ishq is the khatti-meethi love story of ... ...Read full review
More masala-heavy bhelpuri than saffron-tinged biryani, Daawat-e-Ishq is a smorgasbord of conflicting genres that do not mix particularly well.The film kicks off in the manner of a social drama, turns into a mild crime caper, then takes on the dimensions of a culture clash comedy, and finally winds up like a love story with a happy ending.Multiple and not always completely logical narrative swerves all unleashed in the course of a runtime of two hours can only open up gaping holes in the plot that are difficult to plug.Good food and youthful amour do work well in tandem, but the principal trouble with Daawat-e-Ishq is that allows the two ingredients to recede to the background all too often in pursuit of larger issues of life. ...Read full review

In that process Gulrez meets Tariq (Aditya Roy Kapur), a chef from Lucknow. Tariq loves Gulrez and wants to get married to her, but Gulrez has some other plans. What plans?, Well thats what the entire film is all about. ...Read full review
Daawat-e-Ishq is a disappointing recipe of love. Quite like its story, the film thugs you into believing its all about lofty, delicious, gourmet cinema. Sadly its none of those and not even close. When the story doesnt work, nothing about the film can work, not even the performances. The film doesnt even rise up to be a passable watch. It is an excruciating bore lacking the fundamental thrill factor. Predictable and mediocre, Daawat-E-Ishq is the not a film Aditya, Parineeti and mostly Habib Faisal can pass for posterity. ...Read full review
