Strong performances and commendable direction
9 June, 2014
Dedh Ishqiya is directed by Abhishek Chaubey. The main cast comprises of ever charming Madhuri Dixit, dynamic duo Nassiruddin Shah- Arshad Warsi and Huma Qureshi. Ishiqa was loved and appreciated. Naturally Dedh Ishqiya had lots of expectations.
A stolen necklace, Begum's love, villian inteference and of course lots of shayari. Truly paisa wasool. Double crossing and cheating people makes the story line crisp and entertaining.
Madhuri Dixit is well suited for the role but given higher percentage of crying scenes. Her dance moves-- 10 of 10. Nassiruddin Shah looks naturally as a Nawab and immediately transforming from a nawab to conman, well can be handled only by him. The comic touch is given by the jovial conman Arshad. The duo have clicked again. Huma is easy on the eyes. Intimate scenes are well enacted.
The dialogues are good and catchy. Direction is in par with Ishqiya. Lots of similarities between the original and the sequel. 1st half is lazy with comedy. The twists could be guessed easily. If you are a fan of Madhuri and Nassiruddin then you won't be dissapointed.
