How many more love stories can Parineeti Chopra star in? Not that I am bored of watching her, I quite like watching the films she picks up, because she does what she does pretty well. But doesn't she get bored of doing pretty much the same thing over and over again? In this time and age, it is difficult to believe that she hasn't been approached for projects that would explore her acting capabilities beyond romance.

The trailer of Daawat-e-Ishq isn't too exciting except for the conflict it leaves us with. Only problem is that the flavor of the film is such that it makes you feel that it is going to resolve itself pretty lamely.

The sense that the conflict is just to pique interest but won't have any meat in it might have a lot to do with the YRF banner. You know pretty much how such films end up. Unfortunately, Daawat-e-ishq doesn't have good one-liners to hook you in either.

The only silver lining in this otherwise more or less dark cloud is Habib Faisal's name and the fact that he gave us Do Dooni Chaar wasn't half bad either, only that the trailer and the music had really created hopes that the film didn't match up to.

Unfortunately, the music doesn't seem to have inspired good reviews, that doesn't look like a good start at all.
