Ishqiya – Movie about North east Uttar Pradesh

Watched Ishqia today. Really nice movie. Naseerudin Shan, Arshad Varsi & Vidya balan have acted really good.

It is seldom that we get to see movies about these issues (if you leave bar-girls stuff in mumbai or mumbai underworld). I can only remember Omkara in recent past touching some of these problems in eastern UP / Bihar i.e ferocious Race wars, racial armies, naxalites, complete non-existence of govt machinery including police, justice etc. Even though in this movie the two folks are able to get to a success with their technique in getting the police to the crime-scene.

If you’re not too familiar with North-east UP or UP for that matter, you may not co-relate a lot, but it is much native to that part of India. such as “Kids are taught to use firearms before they are taught to be potty trained”.

it is certainly not a typical bollywood entertainment movie. If you go with that in your mind, you might regret the decision.
