A girl and a boy from two feuding families meet and fall hopelessly in love. But the families won't let them unite. They rebel and die, uniting the two warring families eventually. Does this premise ring a bell?
Bollywood have had enough of Romeo & Juliet until now. But nothing, absolutely nothing seem to deter Indian filmmakers from interpreting the Shakespearean masterpiece in their own way over and again. Manish Tiwary's Issaq is a fresh tribute to the tragic play that have inspired many a lovers and movie makers.
However, the real twist here lies in the way Manish Tiwary spins his tale. Despite trailing tragic territory, he infuses his film with lots of light moments, which at times seems amusing, and deeply flawed at other. He and his co-writers Pawan Sony and Padmaja Thakore Tiwary has botched up the simplicity of the classic. Outcome, an incoherent love story that stretches over 150 long minutes.
