Very funny film!
4 February 2001 | by (Cambridgeshire, England) – See all my reviews

Ishq is a very good film. Aamir Khan's acting is super as usual. Ajay Devgan is wonderful and this is his best performance. Juhi Chawla is really good. Kajol is fab!

There's no storyline really in the 1st half. It's just introducing all the characters. It shows Kajal (Kajol) and Ajay (Ajay Devgan) falling for each other and going head over heels. Madhoo (Juhi Chawla) and Raja (Aamir Khan) fighting alot. The 1st half has comedy and it's very good.

The main story starts in the 2nd half. The plot is very interesting. It shows how Kajal and Ajay and Madhoo and Raja have very good relationships with each other and nothing can change that. I'm not going to give the plot away. If you want to know go and rent it!

Ishq deserves a 9/10!
