Where love and hate collide this love story is born. Two people who’re raised hating each other break the unwritten family dictat; and fall in love. These outlaws of love thus start a new war.
Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India
She's a firecracker.
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
That leaves too much of a load on the inexperienced leads. If only Arjun Kapoor's dialogue delivery had greater punch and Parineeti Chopra could pull off the emotional moments without going shrill, Ishaqzaade would have been a markedly better film.
Ishaqzaade, despite its artistry, deserves no pardon.
Raja Sen, Rediff 
A hard hitting love saga Ishaqzaade is a fantastic Indian adaptation of Romeo And Juliet

The best scene in ‘Ishaqzaade’ is the one where Zoya comes home after planning to secretly get married to Parama the next day.
Kunal Guha, Yahoo India
Ishaqzaade is an entertaining fare which works on the strength of its first half and the performances.
Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra are scions of opposition political parties in some remote district out there in the cow belt of India. Love between them was impossible but they do fall in it, that too twice over, even as guns are blazing from all corners. Though a formulaic affair may warrant the call of 'all is well', it isn't as easy a ride for the young ones as their love is seemingly much smaller than the conflict that emerges due to them coming together.
India Glitz
There are plenty of movies which shows how in a male dominated houses, a bubly girl is center of attraction be it Anari (Karishma Kapoor) or Jyotika (Doli Sajake Rakhna), but this movie actually shows why Parineeti is such a loved girl at her house until

Ishaqzaade had the potential to turn into a blockbuster but sadly the opportunity got wasted.

If only the second half had not meandered into a redlight area, this would have been a great watch

There were quite a few expectations from YRF's 'Ishaqzaade' as it promises startling talents and fiery story, in the company of striking soundtrack. The trailer and the promotion too hype the same expectations, where the prime target audience was precisel

Director Habib Faisal chose a unique script and wonderful location to base his plot upon. As Ishaqzaade was shot in Uttar Pradesh, it was easier to give an authentic feel. There is a natural rustic flavour in the way the story is handled and that is the U
Arjun Kapoor and Zoya looked perfect together. The chemistry between the two was good. The script of Ishaqzaade is good and the credit of powerful dialogues and great script goes to Habib Faisal. Gauhar Khan as prostitute Chand Baby was another asset to the film. The too much action and political vendetta bores the audience a bit, but then Habib rightly used Parma’s mother character to offset the political environment in the plot. Amit Trivedi provided awesome background score and songs are also too good and so it the cinematography

Watch her go, you won't dismiss her as the 'other Chopra girl' anymore.

Ishaqzaade’s story may not be new but there are moments which you love and the performances which stay with you. Do watch this for the new phataka, Parineeti Chopra.

Habib Faisal is definitely an intelligent director who shows all the nuances of small towns of UP compared to metros and also the ruthlessness, arrogance, plots, passion along with aggression in the rustic aura which doesn’t fail to impress you. Three che
