Dedh Ishqiya - Preview

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Slow, long and yet it balances between taking its poetry too seriously and dumbing it down for our benefit. Only a few spots you wish were polished a tad better.

With a cast like this, the one thing you can look forward to is ace-class performances. You get lovely glimpses in the official trailer itself. Just the look that connects Madhuri Dixit to Naseeruddin Shah at 0:22 sets up their chemistry. I am looking forward to the banter between Arshad Warsi and Huma Qureshi too. Though Vijay Raaz does come across a shade too loud for the rest of the cast.

While this would be enough to make me watch any film once, I would still want the film to have a story and some more meat in its writing than the dialogue used in the trailer. The few lines you hear are a tad over-written to either shock or feel predictable. Hopefully, the movie has more than just this.

Unfortunately, while the music is quirky it does seem a little repetitive and I guess it is difficult to top 'dil toh bachcha hai ji' from Ishqiya. On the other hand, Madhuri Dixit's presence, especially when she dances adds spark to any song.
