DANGEROUS ISHHQ
 
If life was so simple and understanding problems of your present life meant sleeping on a reclining couch under the guidance of a doctor who quotes from a book about past life, all problems would have been solved. But then life is not so simple and just blaming the issues on what is happening in the ‘here and now’ on the ‘there and then’ is being an escapist. This is what exactly happens to Sanjana (Karisma Kapoor) after her boyfriend Rohan (Rajneesh Duggal) is kidnapped from their beach house.

Sanjana suddenly starts seeing things and her friend terms it as hallucination. But the friend realizes that Sanjana is telling the truth when she reads Urdu, something she has never learnt. Perhaps she knew it in her past life suggests her friend and takes her to a doctor of another kind.

Here, the doctor tells her she can take her to her past life and in a jiffy has her reclining on a couch. She mouths some sentences, tells her she will see a bright light near her forehead, which will illuminate and then she will enter a lift which will descend and she will see where she came from. Voila! That’s exactly what happens. Sanjana is in Pakistan and the year is 1947. From Here Sanjana, gets clues as to who could be behind the kidnapping. During the course of the movie, we also learn that Sanjana and Rohan have been romancing since the 1500s and they never got married as someone else interested in Sanjana was always tearing them apart. That someone is a person close to them and though Sanjana and Rohan look the same, the other man comes in different guises. So will they marry in this life, in 2012? That is what DANGEROUS ISHHQ is all about.

The movie begins with a whimper, gets into thriller zone after 20 minutes and then meanders along with one past life after another which makes it more a costume drama than a thriller.

Vikram Bhatt’s obsession with past life falls flat as he tries to grab thin air. If the person behind the camera is not really convinced about past life, how will he convince his audience? All you see is child-like fantasy. I’d say a lot of money has been invested in a 3D movie on a topic which turns into comedy mid-way.

Karisma Kapoor making a comeback after her marriage is good in patches. Initially, she is a little clueless with no energy neither in her body language nor in her dialogue delivery. Rajneish Duggal is put in different costumes in different eras. It is only Jimmy Sheirgill who brings in that much-needed intensity that gives this film some sort of respectability.

If you are looking exclusively for some 3D visual entertainment, go for it.

Rating - 2/5
