Ishkq In Paris - External Reviews

wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable (?)
quick review:

Ishkq in Paris is a story told way too many times already to be of any interest. What amazes me is why anyone would want to tell it again, when there aren't any takers for listening to it.

Thumbs up Bollywood Life ...Fresh, frothy feel good and, yes, look good, and with a solid undercurrent of emotional frisson to guide the love story to its heart-warming culmination Ishkq In Paris makes you thankful for that thing called love.... full review

Thumbs up by Jaidev Hemmady, Movie Talkies ...The film is a visual delight for sure and the story is quite contemporary, if somewhat predictable...... full review

So-So by Anna MM Vetticad, annavetticadgoes2themovies ...if you’re a die-hard romantic like me, then you might be in a mood to close your eyes to this film’s many flaws. I suspect that's the only way Ishkq in Paris would be your cup of tea.... full review

So-So by Bobby sing, Bobby Talks ...Preity Zinta alone as she remains the lifeline of her self-produced project throughout. Such is the impact of her lively act that after a while it becomes painful to admit that the talented lady is putting so much effort into a film which has a very weak backbone or script in the first place. ... full review

So-So by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...A decent fare... full review

So-So by Tushar Joshi , DNA ...Ishkq works in the first half with lighthearted repartee between the lead actors. The stand up act where they mimic their first date is witty and entertaining. So are some of the pick up lines and dialogues. But the second half and the climax are so predictable that you know the end... full review

So-So by Vinayak Chakravorty, india today ...None of the cast - superstar item boy Salman included - can save a bad script from sinking... full review

So-So by Swati rohatgi, mag4you ...Other than it’s short length, great cinematography and the highest point of Salman Khan’s grooving cameo there’s nothing much to enjoy in the film.... full review

So-So by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA ...Dum hain in the initial parts of the film and is a decent film on overall basis. But as the film progresses it gets ruined by weak screenplay, long dramatic scenes and is not spared by the curse of the second half where you might wonder what's going around in the film.... full review

So-So by Roshmila Bhattacharya, Star Blockbuster ...The film looks beautiful… So does Preity…If only it had a better story?... full review

So-So by Meena Iyer, Times of India ...Preity Zinta's maiden production has its aesthetics in place. Paris is enchanting. The actress is good but there ends the show. ... full review

Thumbs down by Deepa Gahlot, cinemaah ...Bad enough Preity Zinta had to play this hyper bimbette, couldn’t she have found a better actor so cast opposite herself? The two are just so ill-matched, the film ends up looking a few degrees worse than it is.... full review

Thumbs down by Mayank Shekhar, Daily Bhaskar is the cruel story of show business itself that you end up thinking about far more. It happens to the best. Hits happen. Then shit happens, inevitably; sad.... full review

Thumbs down by Khalid Mohamed, Deccan Chronicle ...'Ishkq in Paris' leaves you with jetlag, drowsy and world-weary.... full review

Thumbs down by Rachit Gupta, Filmfare ...Flaky and uninteresting love story... full review

Thumbs down by Deepanjana Pal, FirstPost ...Watching Ishkq in Paris is like assaulting your logic and sensibilities... full review

Thumbs down Free Press Journal ...Manush Nandan’s camerawork does justice to the city of love but the slacking narrative device, uninteresting background score, unmemorable songs and unaffecting performances make it all seem so pointless!... full review

Thumbs down by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...A misguided, overwrought affair... full review

Thumbs down by Swati Deogire, ...Having proved her worth as an actor before in many films, Preity Zinta let us down with her performance as Ishkq.... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...Ishkq In Paris comes off most derivative, and wholly predictable... full review

Thumbs down by Mohar Basu, koimoi ...Despite crisp editing, it is the loose plot, not so compelling story and mostly the unconvincing chemistry which are the film’s primary drawbacks. Unless you are Priety Zinta fan, you can easily give this one a miss!... full review

Thumbs down by Nandini Ramnath, Live Mint ... If the movie works at all, it is because Prem Raj restricts the lopsided affair to 96 minutes, and Zinta’s joy at being the cynosure of attention is undeniably contagious.... full review

Thumbs down by Shubha Shetty Saha, MiD DAY ...The screenplay is too weak for anything to break or make in this film.... full review

Thumbs down by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...The problem with Ishqk in Paris is that it is too convenient a love story and ends on a faux note that is simply not who the characters are... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now ...Ishkq In Paris takes off as a frothy affair but ends up being a melodramatic saga which can bore you easily... full review

Thumbs down by Raja Sen, Rediff ..."This is a rubbish love story" Zinta says in the film’s most honest, self-aware moment... full review
