Movie Review; ISSAQ(‘ISS SUCK’)

isaaq

And one more movie adapted to Shakespeare’s Romeo-Juliet: ISSAQ. Directed by Manish Tiwari of DIL DOSTI ETC’s, starring Prateik Babbar and Amyra Dastur. All I can say is that it’s a threadbare take on of Romeo-Juliet. The plot is very simple and one of the favourites of Bollywood. The story of a feud between two families of Banaras – Kashyaps ...

dday arjun

D-Day is cast in the realistic mould of being a high octane action-thriller. But it also is a tale of love and disrupted lives. As a crime drama D-Day is a decent effort brilliantly accompanied by some high quality acting by the likes of Rishi Kapoor, Irrfan Khan and Huma Qureshi.
