Users Rating: [ratings] ★★☆☆☆
Box Office: Super Hit

Parma is a twenty two year old, immature, short tempered bully. He idolizes his grandfather, the patriarchal head of the family. A goof ball that Parma is, his only real ambition in life is to prove himself worthy to his grandfather. Parma loves to flex his family name and power. To make his grandfather win the next elections is the primary aim of his life. How far will he go to achieve this?

Zoya is a twenty something, boisterous girl from an affluent political family. Living in Almore, a small town in India, she dreams of becoming a MLA, like a child dreams for a toy. The only girl in the all-male joint-family, she is extremely pampered but yet not spoilt. She’s courageous but not rash. Zoya can be very impulsive but is not immature and is someone who can be very practical but at the same time stands for what her heart believes in.

Rising from the ashes of hooliganism and small town clan wars, comes the love story of a passion ignited by hatred. Of two people.Born to hate.Destined to love. One kingdom.One throne.Two wild animals… unpredictable Parma… ferocious Zoya.A battle… deafened by sounds of hate, revenge, bullets and deceit. A story… about two fiery bloods played by Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra, and their fight for power and supremacy. A story about love brewing in a small town burning with hatred.

A story called ISHAQZAADE.

3.0 “Brilliant performance by the lead cast, an ecstatic climax which breaks the typical happily ever after ending, is surely one of the top reasons to visit your nearest theatre.”
Daily Bhaskar
3.0 “The film keeps you engaged in the first half and the important twist right before the break is truly mind blowing. The second half unfortunately loses pace and the predictability creeps in by the end of it.”
