Issaq quick movie review: Fails to recreate the Romeo-Juliet magic!

Our reviewer sent us this message, as she watched the film starring Prateik and Amyra Dastur

It is a long Friday indeed. Our reviewer is watching Issaq, the Romeo and Juliet retake by director Manish Tiwari, starring Prateik and Amyra Dastur. And this is what she messaged us: “Prateik and Amyra fail to do justice to the small town characters they are playing in the film. The protagonists’ disappointing performance clashes with the beautiful locales of Varanasi…ironic! The supporting actors – Ravi Kishen, Makrand Deshpande, Prashant Narayan, Vineet Kumar Singh from Gangs of Wasseypur fame are the real heroes of the film – they are rustic to the core. Half the film is over and Issaq is still trying hard to recreate the classic Romeo and Juliet passion, but unfortunately we don’t feel the love yet!”

We wait to hear more. Watch this space for the full review of Issaq.
