Dedh Ishqiya Movie Review


Ratings:4/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand's Verdict ( CNN IBN)
The film’s crackling humor, set to Bhardwaj’s terrific dialogues, is its biggest strength. From laugh-out-loud punch-lines to cheeky repartee, Dedh Ishqiya has some of the most inspired writing you’ve seen on screen recently. Dedh Ishqiya gives the UP badlands a light cloak of humor and, to the viewer – we’re happy to note – a bold reveal that is more suggested than emphasized. I’m going with four out of five for director Abhishek Chaubey’s Dedh Ishqiya. Like heady wine, it delivers a welcome kick.

While ISHQIYA was earthy and rustic, one gets to witness an alternate universe in DEDH ISHQIYA. There are layers to the story that baffle you. This time, it's even more dicey and perilous. On the whole, DEDH ISHQIYA is a worthy follow up to the widely admired ISHQIYA. Powerful writing, superb direction and outstanding performances make DEDH ISHQIYA a must watch. Just don't miss it!

Director Abhishek Chaubey’s new installment in the adventures of the lovable rogues - Khalujan and Babban - is rich in atmospherics and poetry. I also struggled with the Urdu - it was melodious but I wish I understood more of it. Still Dedh Ishqiya is worth watching just for Abhishek Chaubey’s ambition and boldness. This is not a director constrained by the demands of the box office. I’m going with three stars.

 On the whole, Dedh Ishqiya is a dull fare and will not find favour with the youth. Classes may like the film but that will be a very small section of the audience. Its high-flown Urdu dialogues are a dampener. It will end up entailing heavy losses to all concerned.

Dedh Ishqiya is a sequel to the zany 2010 black comedy Ishqiya. Like its prequel, the idiom and the setting are rural. What's also nice is the contemporary thought woven in .So, the desi-yuppies can connect. Vishal Bharadwaj's dialogue keeps you in splits. The free usage of words like s** and chu**yapaa tickle the funny bone.

This is a rare joy. It’s a genuinely smart film. It’s beautifully, lovingly shot. The music aids the narrative instead of distractingly taking it hostage. It’s the most quotable Hindi movie in years. It's a sequel that leaves even a highly original first-part far behind. And, for a film so accessible, it’s armed with the most cunning, most delicious twist. It’s terrific -- and a half. Dedhriffic, then.

A melange of genres, the genesis of Dedh Ishqiya's moods might've roots in the works of a cross-section of cinema -  but it stays consistent to the form it chooses and creates an atmosphere that only comes when hearing good poetry. Oh yes, the sequel, the film significantly better than Part I. Dedh Ishqiya - it's texture, dialogue, and performances - make it good enough to hold up in a repeat viewing. And that's a lot more than you can say about the majority of other films.

Dedh Ishqiya is in many respects appreciably more enthralling than Ishqiya. Dedh Ishqiya entertains, but does so in a manner that does not trifle with the intelligence of the audience. Here is an exceptional film that does not have to negotiate the kind of facile crowd-pleasing narrative formulations that most Bollywood flicks must necessarily wade through in order to get to the Rs 200-crore mark. Dedh Ishqiya might not get there, but it is a triumph of measured craftsmanship and storytelling finesse.

There is much to be liked in the film, and I wish all of it had been as good as the scintillating bits. I also missed some of the robustness and the spikiness of the original.‘Dedh Ishqiya’ has its high points, but it isn’t a stayer. Next time I want `dhai’ all the way.

Dedh Ishqiya doesn't want to be a successful franchise, it wants to be a good movie which keeps the viewers entertained. Dedh Ishqiya's success can be attributed to the taut story of Darab Farooqui which is aided by Chaubey's fine screenplay, Vishal Bhardwaj's rib-tickling, naughty dialogues and Dr Bashir Badr's lovely Urdu poems.

Dedh Ishqiya is smarter, funnier, richer and way more gorgeous than its predecessor.  The film deserves to make hundreds of crores, because it’s a hundred times better than part one. It’s a rare movie that delves in intelligent humor and succeeds so brilliantly. It transported me to a more cheerful and less cynical headspace and I fell for it all the way.

There are love triangles, a bromance, a delicious villain, multiple twists, car chases and, of course, lots of humour. Compared to Ishqiya, Dedh Ishqiya is far more elaborate, complicated and ambitious.Dedh Ishqiya is an absolute delight because all its parts fit beautifully

The film rides on a good story, great acting performances, brilliant screenplay, interesting dialogues and a twist, which will leave you awestruck. If Ishqiya was rustic, Dedh Ishqiya is royal. Just like the prequel Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad have given an outstanding performance. Dedh Ishqiya is fractionally better than its prequel.For all the cinema lovers, who prefer acting and story over masala, it’s time to book your seats.

  1. producers of this film have given more money to chor taran this is why he is first to give review.

    1. Bhai he is always early and i suppose he is always paid for major movies

    2. Taran ADARSH also required CAG audit to his review...

      Delete
    3. I feel most people are too harsh on Taran come on this is hardly a masala movie and still taran has given a 4 . This could well be interesting offbeat movie choice for those who always find these box office record breaking movies too much too digest

      Delete
    4. Please bring arvind kejrival and arrest taran adarsh for public cheating

      Delete
  2. Why do people start bashing up Taran others have also reviewed this movie and they are giving good ratings too. Waise bhi this might never do 100 crores but would still be a good movie to watch

    1. taran adarsh have the track record of fudging figures(Krish3 for which bollywoodhungama was the promotionist) and ofcourse giving unreasonable rating for the movies which he is invited for the preview.
      Please take a look at some of his review
      1. Swades.
      From the review of Swades, he starts as usual with the pedigree and in the third paragraph, states his opinion as follows, "Unfortunately, SWADES disappoints big time. The story of SWADES would've been ideal for a documentary, but for a feature film with a running time of 3 hour plus and starring the country's biggest star, it just doesn't work." He gets cynical throughout the review and very grudgingly acknowledges some "sequences" which he then claims aren't enough to save the film.

    2. I find Adarsh's reviews not just distasteful but also in poor form. However, they do have one value - I have of late found that movies he says "won't work" are actually quite good, and those that he says are great turn out to be crappy. So, negating his statement can actually give us valuable information about the film's true quality.

    3. bina adarsh waala taran ka frequent words.
      1.Roll out the red carpet.
      2.Blow the conch shells.
      3.Beat the drums.
      4.It's time to pop champagne...

      and he continues.
      1.Let me keep it concise and to the point. You haven't watched something like this on the Hindi screen before. Never ever!

      He then writes,
      It requires courage, willpower, fortitude, vision and of course, the financial backing to accomplish a project of this magnitude

      Delete
    4. Bhai whatever may be your issue with Taran this movie is getting rave reviews from everyone and so far reviews seems to be better than ishqiya.
      Waise pehle taran used to give bad reviews to any movie which is not masala but of late he has changed.

      Delete
    5. Taran Adarsh ke 3 MAHAPAAP
      He has given
      Swades -1.5
      Rang De Basanti -2.5
      Chak De-2.5
      Taran jaisa CHUTIYA duniya mein nahi dekha

      Delete
    6. common i dont have any issues with taran.. however i have found that most of his reviews are deliberate to misguide moviegoer....please wait and watch the review which he is gonna give for "YAARIYAN" which I am sure will be sureshot bakwaas movie.

      And please refrain from using abusive language...grow up

    7. Taran jaise CORRUPT CHUTIYE jyada din tikenge nahi ab

    10. masand bhi bekaar critic hai....usko sidekicks jyaada pasand aate hai...aur naya trend chaloo kiya hai ...half rating extra for a star...krissh jaisi ghatiya film ko 3 stars...lunchbox was good lekin paanch star jaisa kuch nahin tha.....sab saale pressure main kuch bhi bolte hai .....shuddh desi romance was praised by this man....such a pathetic and repititive film....only shubhra gupta has some credibility

      Delete
    11. I agree Masand get wrong sometimes...he give extra stars to some films sometimes...but he never give more stars to BAD films unlike Taran who gives 3 or more stars to Rascals,ready,Tees mar khan,housefull 2,rowdy rathore,ra1, bodyguard n many more...

  5. Rajeev Masand, Raja Sen, Anupama Chopra and Gaurav Rai all four of them give appropriate comment as far as knowledge about a movie is concern. Taran has no knowledge about Movies. He should start Reviewing BOJHPURI movies.

  6. yaarian is better than this movie....and taran has given right review...guys..he gives review on his own thinking

  7. I love Komal Nahata 's review he says it all clear that the movie is a dud no matter how much pseudo intellectuals and critics praise the movie.
    If you want entertainment than go watch any other movie ha ha ha

  8. Cinema is very subjective. Critics ne toh Aashiqui-2 ko bhi 1.5 star diye the lekin nikli super hit...bhai bhgvaan ne sabko dimaag diya hai unhe apna dimaag use karne do.

  9. फिल्म के एक अहम सीन में, जब दबंग विधायक जाँ मुहम्मद [विजयराज अपने निहायत ही जाने-पहचाने अंदाज़ में], जिन्हें नवाब बनना-दिखना-लगना-कहलाना पसंद है, और उसके गुर्गों का सामना खालू [नसीरूद्दीन शाह] और बब्बन [अरशद वारसी] से होता है...दोनों ही गुट एक दूसरे को पिस्तौल के निशाने पर रख लेते हैं! मुश्किल ये है की अब पिस्तौल पहले कौन हटाये? इसी पेशोपेश में सुबह हो जाती है! अगर आप समझ पायें कि कहानी लख़नऊ के आस-पास की है, जहाँ की तहज़ीब और तमीज़ 'पहले आप-पहले आप' में रची-बसी है तो बहुत मुश्किल नहीं है अभिषेक चौबे की लज्ज़तदार कॉमेडी थ्रिलर 'डेढ़ इश्क़िया' का लुत्फ़ उठाना!

    'डेढ़ इश्क़िया' उन चंद फिल्मों में से है जिसकी ख़ूबसूरती जिस शिद्दत से कलम से निकलती है, उसी बख़ूबी पर्दे पे भी रंग लाती है! फ़िल्म आपको एक ऐसी दुनिया में ले जाती है जहाँ के मिज़ाज कातिलाना, किरदार गुस्ताख़ और तबियत शायराना है। उर्दू महज़ लफ़्ज़ों तक नहीं रुकती, हवाओं और फिज़ाओं में रूह की तरह बेपरवाह बहती है। पिछली बार ऐसा कुछ तेवर आपने तिगमांशु धुलिया की 'साहब बीवी और गैंगस्टर' में महसूस किया होगा। सुनकर या पढ़कर अगर आपको लग रहा हो, ये एक बीते दौर की पुरानी फ़िल्म है तो आप एक बार फिर गलत हैं। अभिषेक चौबे जिस तरह फ़िल्म को एक अलग अंदाज़ से अपने बिंदास ह्यूमर और बेबाक किरदारों के साथ परोसते हैं, फ़िल्म आपको ना सिर्फ बाँधे रखती है नयेपन का भी पूरा एहसास कराती है!

    खालू [नसीर साब] पे अब उमर असर दिखाने लगी है पर जवान दिल के साथ वो अभी भी महमूदाबाद रियासत की बेगम पारा [बेइंतिहाई खूबसूरत माधुरी] का शायराना शौहर बनने की होड़ से खुद को पीछे नहीं रख पाता! ऐसे ही एक और नकली नवाब हैं विजयराज जो एक क़ैद शायर [मनोज पाहवा] की मदद से बेगम के दिल और रियासत दोनों पर काबिज़ होना चाहते हैं। जल्दी ही ये सारी कवायद परत-दर-परत साज़िशों और किरदारों के बदलते अक्स का नमूना बन जाती है...और फिर शुरू होता ही दौर, दिलचस्प हादसों का जिनकी भनक आपको कतई नहीं लगती! खुराफाती बब्बन [अरशद] और बेगम की हमराज़ मुनिया [हुमा कुरैशी] भी इस सारी जद्द-ओ-जेहद का हिस्सा हैं।

    फिल्म की जान सिर्फ कहानी ही नहीं है, विशाल भारद्वाज के मजेदार डायलॉग- बशीर बद्र साब की शायरी- खूबसूरत सिनिमेटोग्रफी और किरदारों का शानदार अभिनय फिल्म को एक अलग मुकाम पर ले जाता है। जहाँ एक-एक फ्रेम आपको दीवार पे सजी तस्वीरों का गुमान कराती है, किरदारों के ज़बानी इज़हार चेहरे पे मुस्कुराहट बिखेर देते हैं, वहीं फिल्म का स्क्रीनप्ले बहुत ही संजीदा तरीके से आपको उस मौहाल के एकदम करीब ले जाता है। बेगम के कमरे में बजता ग्रामोफ़ोन, उस पर बेगम अख्तर की ठुमरी 'हमरी अटरिया पे आओ जी', शायराना जलसे में मशहूर शायर नवाज़ देवबंदी की मौजूदगी...यहाँ कुछ भी बेढंगा, बेवजह नहीं है! फिल्म के आखिर में, बेगम अख्तर की ग़ज़ल 'वो जो हम में तुम में करार था' और उस पे फिल्माया गया शूटआउट सीन लाजवाब है. इस तरह का तजुर्बा हमें अक्सर टोरंटीनो की फिल्मों में देखने को मिलता है।

    आखिर में सिर्फ इतना ही, 'डेढ़ इश्क़िया' 'इश्क़िया' जितनी मजेदार या मज़ाकिया भले ही ना हो, सूरत और सीरत में उस से कहीं बेहतर फिल्म है। काफी वक़्त बाद, एक ऐसी हिंदुस्तानी फिल्म जिसमें उर्दू को एक वाजिब तवज़्ज़ो अता की गयी है। समझ में आती हो तो बेशक़ देखनी चाहिये, नहीं आती हो फिर भी देखिये! [४/५]

  14. Dedh Ishqiya : Namely "'DEDH' Ishqiya" but the movie offers DOUBLE the entertainment than its prequel.Movie starts off well and keep one glued to seat through out.Story is good and refreshing carried by sharp direction and edition.First half is full on comedy and when it comes to the second half,the secrets unfold.Coming to the performances,Arshad Warsi is the key player who holds the whole movie with his act.Naseeruddin Shah and Huma Qureshi are as good as always.Madhuri Dixit - Nene has got a good come back as it seems like this role was written for her only.Vijay Raaz i.e. the villain has done an outstanding job and gives you no chance to take your eyes off the screen when he is on.All in all,this one is not to be missed at any cost.Go,get the popcorns and grab your seat and enjoy the hilarious ride.

    Verdict : 4*/5
