Charismatic actress Karisma Kapoor has made a remarkable comeback through Vikram Bhatt’s latest movie Dangerous Ishhq. The flick told through different eras of furor, mythology and history which attract our attention on many levels.
Although the subject has also been seen in Satyajit Ray’s Sonar Kella, but its fresh and interesting portrayal in this flick makes it an amusing affair. Despite having engaging plot-line, the film suffers a severe setback because of dropping and monotonous second hour.
Dangerous Ishhq is a fantasy film, which is a quest through psychology into one’s past life. Karisma Kapoor’s performance and Amin Hajee’s solid story are the major attractions of the film. Himesh Reshammiya’s music, Girish Dhamija’s dialogues, amazing 3D effects and trendy costumes are its other highlights.
The movie revolves around a girl’s search for her lover through the previous lives. The director has ensured that he keeps the viewer’s interest active by incorporating several episodes, which can to anybody instantly. But the story becomes more exhausting and boring by the end of the first half. Although the director has included some brilliant moments, he fails to hold the attention of the viewers in the second hour.
Story: Sanjana Saxena (Karisma Kapur) is a top model in her current life and is engaged to a business tycoon’s son Rohan Thakral (Rajneesh Duggal). But her fiancé gets kidnapped in a dramatic way. His high-profile seizure creates a chaos in her life, which leads her to discover her love life in past lives. The tacts and the ideas she opt to rescue her lover and expose his true captors constitutes the crux of the story.
Performance: In this comeback film, Karisma Kapoor has absolutely delivered a much-needed brilliant performance. Her dialogue delivery is just superb. Rajneesh Duggal does not have much scope in the film, but he has used available space to show his acting prowess. As cop, Jimmy Shergill wins the heart of the audience. Aarya Babbar, Divya Dutta, Ravi Kishan, Ruslaan Mumtaz and Samir Kochhar have also done justice to their respective roles.
Himesh Reshammiya’s music is a major highlight in the technical front. ‘Tu Hi Rab Tu Hi Dua’ left an ever-lasting impression. Praveen Bhatt’s camera work is nice. The 3D work in the film seems to be pointless except for a few scenes.
Remarks: All in all, Vikram Bhatt has a wonderful story and he has given a great attention to the details of the ages. Amazingly the audience forgets the film is in 3D, as the fascinating story takes over, carrying us into several world, moods, emotions and elucidation of love commitment and determination.
