Movie Review: Daawat-e-Ishq

Written By kom nampultig on Jumat, 19 September 2014 | 21.44

Story: Wafting flavours of love simmer via the best-known route possible - stomach. The daawat looks good, but will it leave romantics with an unforgettable taste of love?

Review: Statutory Warning: Do not watch this film on an empty stomach, lest the growling belly overpowers the sweet of this gastronomic love affair.

Food is magical - it inspires love, lust, art, poetry, sex and of course, cinema. The master chef of this one, director Habib Faisal, whips up a story in the city of nawabs - over kitchen fires, kebabs, dough and the (socially relevant) dowry system. It's a feast for the eyes, though there's not as much for the heart to savour.

Meet Hyderabad ki Gulrez (Parineeti), she's feisty (a well-roasted temper), gutsy and likes propah angrezi-speaking men. Sadly, her Booji (Kher) finds only dowry-seeking spineless men who boast of shallow degrees from 'IIM' (International Institute of Mehboobnagar!). She works as a salesgirl in a shoe-store but dreams of being a shoe-designer.

Along with Booji, she masterminds a con-plan to frame dowry-demanding dulhas and make big bucks to pursue her dream. But her plans get skewered when she meets Lucknow ka aashiq Tariq (Aditya), a chef and owner of the legendary restaurant 'Haidari Kababs'. Gulrez gets drawn to the warm, inviting aromas of love while he woos her with botis, rotis and shahi tukdas of his heart.

Habib Faisal's offering is definitely fresher than a packaged, frozen meal; but when he's not paying attention the story boils over and the flavour escapes quickly. The second half crumbles (guess some recipes got nixed here) and the climax is far from slurp-worthy. There are some 'specials of the day' like Booji's goofiness during the con-act, and the line-up of dowry-hungry men walking into the trap, but the characters are not as indulgent as the dishes. Parineeti displays 'high-cal' emotions once again, with her sweet Hyderabadi accent and superb confidence. Aditya charmingly shows flair with his Lucknowi style and ada. Their chemistry doesn't simmer; it's low-fat kulfi at best. Kher peppers it with a stand-out sorbet act.

This one won't fill your hungry hearts, but one serving (not too bland, not too spicy) isn't too bad for your appetite.

TV celeb alleges director of cheap behaviour

Sofia Hayat, who earlier alleged Armaan Kohli for hitting her in Bigg Boss house in 7th season, now seems to be unhappy with the director/actor of an upcoming film "Bhai Ka Maal hai", Anil Goyal for supposedly taking her name for the publicity of his unfinished film, that too when she is not a part the film anymore. She has also accused him of abusing her.

Sofia says, "They signed me for the film "Bhai ka Maal hai" nearly three years ago and said that they would pay me a scanty amount but I agreed because I was told that they would have a great cast and it would be a good film for my bollywood career. I even took part in the promotion with a Baba Ramdev look-a-like a few years back. After that, I did not hear anything for 3 years, finally, after they saw me in Bigg Boss, they decided to re-start the film and I guess my name was used to sign other actor cast also. I, then clearly refused as I was not interested anymore and my contract was null and void, So to which, Anil (director Anil Goyal) got furious and sent me abusive messages saying that I am a prostitute who shows her body"

"Of course, I got mad and decided not to talk to him but he, further fake-accused me for blackmailing him for money. He then again contacted me pleading to do his film, but I put a condition and said, I would do his film only if he pay for my business class air tickets but he refused to do so, instead he offered me his next film to sign if I would complete his unfinished film "Bhai ka Maal hai" but I said a big NO as my self-respect didn't allow me to join hands again with that person who once called me with cheap name" added Sofia.
