Dedh Ishqiya - Movie Reviews

Watch this film; the world outside would have gotten mellower and more beautiful when you come out of the theatre
It’s the enchanted world of Urdu shayari, the rustle of precious silks and ada (style) beautifully contrasted with ruthless treachery and dark humour.

There are many things to enjoy in Dedh Ishqiya - starting with that curious name. Director Abhishek Chaubey's new installment in the adventures of the lovable rogues - Khalujan and Babban - is rich in atmospherics and poetry. Anupama Chopra writes.

Madhuri Dixit-Nene has done an okay job in the movie!
Bollywood Life
As vintage, smooth, refreshing, stirring and satisfying as a 'Rooh Afza' in the current B.O. core club heat; as free willingly openminded as a bisexual; as stylish and glamorous as the celebrity derby race, witty as it should be, poetic as never before, as sexy and snaky as a oomphy Bollywood nagin, 'Dedh Ishqiya' - the second installment of Shemaroo and Vishal Bhardwaj's desi spaghetti con 'Ishqiya' gets bigger and better  with an haunting chorus without missing a beat gets nostalgic and doesn't shake from  its genre. Brilliant.
India Glitz
But, that should in no way deter you from taking this cinematic journey which is more layered and complex than Ishqiya.

But if Chaubey and Bhardwaj can pull off the magic they do in Dedh Ishqiya, we don't want to stop them.
India Today
Overall, ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ is a well made sequel which has some decent performances by the entire star cast. Interesting twists, perfect set up and a talented Huma Qureshi make this film definitely worth a watch.

Unlike Ishqiya's hit soundtrack, Dedh Ishqiya falls way short, writes Joginder Tuteja.

What a difference a week makes. Last week, the sight of Vijay Raaz and Arshad Warsi in “Joe B Carvalho” was enough to drive someone up the wall. A week later, they are a sheer delight in film-maker Abhishek Chaubey’s “Dedh Ishqiya”.
Reuters India
Dedh Ishqiya falls just a step short of being flawless and that's only because of the Tarantino-esq climax. But in the rest of the portions the film as promised "Dedh" (One and a half) times the fun of the original.

On the whole, Dedh Ishqiya is a dull fare and will not find favour with the youth. Classes may like the film but that will be a very small section of the audience. Its high-flown Urdu dialogues are a dampener. It will end up entailing heavy losses to all
