'Ishq Forever' Movie Review: This Krishna Chaturvedi- Ruhi Singh's 'ishq' story doesn't last forever!
Cast: Krishna Chaturvedi, Ruhi Singh, Javed Jaffery, Lisa Ray

Director: Sameer Sippy

Producer: Shabbir Boxwala, Ajay Shah, Harry Gandhi

Writer: Shabbir Boxwala

Claps: A song or two with which Nadeem Saifi takes you back to those bygone 90s

Slaps: Lacklustre performances, Boring execution of the plot

What's New: Nothing

Popcorn Refill: Your popcorn tub is more satisfying than the film. Hop out to refill it and we bet you won't miss anything major!

Plot: Heard of a Hollywood film called 'Chasing Liberty'? Well, if you haven't then here's a gist of what's in store for you in 'Ishq Forever'.

Riya (Ruhi Singh) is a young, carefree girl studying in South Africa. On the other hand, her influential family back in India is extremely protective of her and advises her to stay away from booze, drugs, boys and 'ahem' in order to be a good girl. When her dad becomes the Prime Minister of India, Riya is given a high security cover out there since her life is supposed to be in danger.

Time for some action baby! So there we have two RAW agents, Amitabh (Javed Jaffery) and his ex wife Naina (Lisa Ray) being sent to South Africa to protect Riya. However due to a misunderstanding Riya switches on her full rebellious mode and elopes from her own birthday party. Reason- She wants to visit a place called Cape Of Good Hope! (Like, really?)

And yes, you guessed it right. This runaway girl meets a stranger named Aryan Shekhawat (Krishna Chaturvedi) and thus a typical filmy story unfolds; one that you must have witnessed countless times in the past. The only twist in the tale- our hero has a secret identity!

Performances: Debutante Krishna Chaturvedi sleepwalks through his role. He fails to carry the film on his shoulder as a hero.

Ruhi Singh is yet to shed her 'Calender Girls' dust and continues with her wooden expressions and 'over-the-top' acting. Her dialogue delivery needs to be worked upon.

The chemistry between the lead pair is ice cold and fails to give you those romantic vibes.

Javed Jaffery and Lisa Ray are both wasted in their roles. But the duo still try hard to keep you entertained with their funny oh-so-cute banter but alas! that doesn't last long.

Direction: 'Ishq Forever' is a potpourri of many popular films and clich├ęd dialogues with a topping of 'fresh faces'. Unfortunately the final product leaves you unsatisfied and craving for some good romance. Are you listening, Mr Sippy?

A poor rip-off of 'Chasing Liberty', this Krishna Chaturvedi-Ruhi Singh starrer is a huge let-down. Though it has some decent soundtracks and few beautiful locales, the annoying background score in certain scenes play a spoilsport.

Combo-on-offer: A pinch of romance, drama, music and humour

Verdict: We give 'Ishq Forever' SLAPS for being a damp squid that leaves you zombified. This one is worth a 'skip'!
