A Cult - Must Watch for Every Genuine Movie Lover
11 January 2014 | by aijaz-hussainSee all my reviews

Dedh Ishqiya is cleverly written and brilliantly executed; it is the perfect comeback vehicle and tribute to the only true screen goddess Madhuri Dixit.

Apart from Madhuri's heartfelt performance, Dedh Ishqiya will always be remembered and referenced for its brilliant direction and storytelling. The movie is smarter, funnier, richer, and way more gorgeous than its prequel Ishqiya. The writing is brilliant, screenplay immaculate, and direction flawless. Dialogues were quirky and all the lead as well as the supporting actors performed really well. Kudos to the director.

Now speaking about the main attraction and the lead character of this movie Madhuri Dixit who essays the role of Begum Para, one has to admit that she was, is, and will remain THE BEST actress as long as Indian cinema exists. Her luminous smile enchants, her dance captivates, and her mischievous glance casts spell magic on audience.

They say the soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone..I never got it until I watched Madhuri Dixit in Dedh Ishqiya. And it is apt to say "Always pray to have eyes that see the best, a heart that forgives the worst, a mind that forgets the bad, and a soul that never loses faith in God".

Don't miss the rare opportunity to watch this gem of a movie and the timeless Madhuri Dixit.
