Storyline

A deliciously romantic coming together of Gulrez "Gullu" Qadir (Parineeti Chopra) a Hyderabadi shoe-sales girl disillusioned with love because of her encounters with dowry-seeking men; and Tariq "Taru" Haidar (Aditya Roy Kapur) a Lucknawi cook who can charm anybody with the aroma and flavours of his biryani and kebabs. In the clash of diametrically opposite but equally spicy cultures of Hyderabad and Lucknow, Gullu and Taru arrive at a "tuning-setting", rewrite traditional recipes of love, crush old-fashioned world-view and make their own masaledaar albeli rangreli pichchar - Daawat-e-Ishq.

Great feel good movie
21 September 2014 | by PktasiSee all my reviews

This is a fun movie to watch and completely entertaining. We loved how parineeti chopra and aditya roy kapoor acting. They are both natural and make the acting look effortless. Anupam kher is also great. The chemistry between Kher and pareeneta, as father Daughter duo is amazing well portrayed. Its a movie with a good social message as well. And a great display of social chemistry in India. Overall its a good and fun movie to watch. Indian cusine is also portrayed so well, never really done in any other movie i know. Well directed movie and a non-conventional storyline. This is a fun movie to watch and completely entertaining. We loved how parineeti chopra and aditya roy kapoor acting.
