Ishkq In Paris

Movie Review: The ideal conclusion when a man, Rhehan Malliek (Akshay) and woman, Preity Zinta(ishkq) spend one night roaming on the streets of Paris, would be that they fall in love. Alas, in Prem Soni's Ishkq in Paris, this doesn't happen. The girl is afraid of commitment and the guy is happy to play along. So they soak in the sights—the Eiffel Tower especially—drink, dance, make a mock film and do several insipid things but never get around to being serious. Love is not on the agenda as yet.

Nearly one half of the film is wasted, doing precious nothing. When your patience starts to wear thin, you're told the reason why the beautiful Ishkq is against commitment is because her French mother Marie (Isabella Adjani) has been ditched by her Indian father (Shekhar Kapur) when she was just seven. This Indo-French girl therefore lives in a cocoon; hates marriage and fears divorce.

So even though romance may have stared her in the eye at that chance meeting with the light-eyed Akshay, on their first night in Paris, Ishkq continues with her life as if nothing ever happened. Akshay returns to London where he is a humdrum existence as an agent(whatever!). Few reels later, they reunite at one of his friend's wedding in Paris. In round two, they drink, frolic and dance. To the audience's delight, they even manage to snag a balle balle with Salman Khan in a lovable cameo. By now, Akshay is very sure that he loves Ishkq. However the stubborn woman that she is, she will not concede. Finally the script runs out of steam and Ishkq, thank God for that, runs straight into Akshay's arms in true Bollywood style.

Preity Zinta's maiden production has its aesthetics in place. Paris is enchanting. The actress is good but there ends the show.
