Dedh Ishqiya – sequel of Ishqiya is an Indian comedy thriller starring Madhuri Dixit, Arshad Warsi, Naseeruddin Shah, and Huma Qureshi in the lead roles. The film is released today in India and showing on Pakistani cinemas as well. After the acclaimed and successful Ishqiya, the Khalujaan (Naseeruddin Shah)and Babban (Arshad Warsi), the two romantic thieves are back in Dedh Ishqiya with their romantic adventures and heart winning performance. And this time love will take them through the adventurous seven stages with the beautiful and precarious Begum Para (Madhuri Dixit) and Munniya (Huma Qureshi).
Expectations from this sequel were sky high mainly because it marks the return of one of the booming actresses in Bollywood – Madhuri Dixit, as well as the first part was a critically acclaimed film.
Ishqiya was intellectual, peppery and unpredictable with impetuous characters and a storyline that flips over every few minutes. The sequel is no different. It takes you to a whole different world and focuses on love and deception. However, it’s far more multifaceted this time.
So, if you are scheduling to watch a movie this weekend, you should go forward and book your tickets for Dedh Ishqiya. Or if you are one of those people who don’t believe in senseless entertainment, this one is not a bad idea. Potent writing, excellent direction, exceptional performances make this movie a must watch!
