Ishq is not a typical boy meets girl and fall in love movie. This movie talks about the ‘immorality’ in the backdrop of romance.
Did you watch this movie? How much do you feel it was worth?
The Arabic word Ishq often denotes love and passion, centered on a hero and heroine.
Ishq surpasses all the clichés of a romantic movie with its unique style of making.
Sachi (Shane Nigam) falls in love at first sight when he sees Vasudha (Ann Sheetal). But Sachi’s family is gearing up for his sister’s wedding.
With the help of Sachi’s friendly and supportive mother, he finds the right time to propose Vasudha and they both fell love with each other. Everything goes fine until they meet Alvin (Shine Tom Chacko).
Unlike the movies that amplify the qualities of a protagonist, here the lead character's milieu is woven around morality.
The first half talks about their relationship and Sachi’s possessive attitude towards Vasudha.
The movie transforms from romance to thriller in the second half.
Shane Nigam’s transformation from a flamboyant lover to a mass hero is quite entertaining to watch.
Ann Sheetal also shines with her performance but sometimes she lacks certain emotion in the scenes.

Even Shine Tom Chacko is also done a commendable performance.
The main highlight of the film is its gripping climax which takes this movie to a different dimension.
Ratheesh Ravi’s screenplay has some loopholes and the character contradiction of Sachi and Alvin (Shine Tom Chacko) hinders.
On a serious note, Ishq is an unusual romantic thriller which has some unexpected twists and turns.
