Dangerous Ishq - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Dangerous Ishhq reminded me of a Jitendra film from the 70s-80s (have been wrecking my brain to remember the title of the film, but it just won't come, maybe there were more than one.) in which there were all kinds of curses and counter-curses. But at the very least it had a mythological background. Dangerous Ishhq exasperates you with the witchery while trying to keep the setting modern. Just doesn't gel.

Thumbs up Buzz in Town ...this is a film that takes us far beyond the accepted boundaries of entertainment to forge a new genre of cinematic experience.... full review

So-So Daily Bhaskar ...A flawless act by Karisma Kapoor, a crisp direction, intelligent editing and cinematography are the strengths. Some loopholes in the storyline, impactless dialogues, especially in the first half and the music are the weak points.... full review

Thumbs down by Nupur Barua, fullhyd.com ...The locations and costumes make up a little for the tedious script, but it all seems unreal, somewhat. The 3D is a little skewed... full review

Thumbs down by Rahul Desai, Upper Stall ...Dangerous Ishq cannot be classified as a period film, or a horror film, or a film based on paranormal activity, or even a thriller.... full review
