Releasing on September 5th 2014, Yash Raj Films brings another comedy drama film ‘Daawat-e-Ishq,’ directed by Habib Faisal whose last directorial venture Ishaqzaade was commercially and critically acclaimed.
Daawat-e-Ishq brings Aditya Roy Kapur and Parineeti Chopra together, for the first time on-screen. The pair is expected to deliver a thunderous performance banking on the success of their recent releases. Interestingly this is also the first time for the music duo Sajid-Wajid to work for the Yash Raj banner. The music of the movie though has received a mixed response, Kausar Munir’s writings have lifted the title track which is a qawaali by Javed Ali and the song Shayarana, a rock-ballad. These two songs are the highlights of the album.
The plot of the movie revolves around a Hyderabadi shoe-sales girl (Parineeti) and a Lucknawi Cook (Aditya). It will be interesting to see how Habib Faisal depicts the coming together of these two diametrically opposite cultures.
Parineeti Chopra has supposedly received training from Elahe Hiptoola to get that perfect Dakhini accent. Notably, television actor Karan Wahi is making his silver-screen debut with this film which also stars Anupam Kher.
Though the music of the movie hasn’t been up to the mark, much is expected from the powerful cast and the director. The combination of Habib Faisal, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Parineeti Chopra has all the makings of a blockbuster. Let us hope the movie lives up to the expectations.
