Actress Karisma Kapoor is making a grand comeback through Vikram Bhatt's latest movie Dangerous Ishhq. The flick deals with Past Life Regression. Although this subject has been explored in Satyajit Ray's Sonar Kella, it seems to be very fresh and interesting affair in this flick. Despite having interesting plot-line, the film suffers a severe set back and that is because of dragging and monotonous second hour.
Dangerous Ishhq is a fantasy film, which is an expedition through hypnosis into one's past life. Karisma Kapoor's performance and Amin Hajee's solid story are the major attractions of the film. Himesh Reshammiya's music, Girish Dhamija's dialogues, amazing 3D effects and trendy costumes are its other highlights.
The movie revolves around a girl's search for her lover through the previous lives. The director has ensured that he keeps the viewer's interest alive by incorporating episodes, which can relate himself/herself immediately. But the story becomes more taxing and boring by the end of the first half. Although the director has included some brilliant moments, he fails to hold the attention of the viewers in the second hour.
Story: Sanjana Saxena (Karisma Kapur) is a top model in her current life and is engaged to a business tycoon's son Rohan Thakral (Rajneesh Duggal). But her fiancee gets kidnapped in a dramatic way. His high-profile abduction creates a chaos in her life, which leads her to discover her love life in past lives. Will she rescue her lover and expose his true captors? The answer to this question forms the crux of the story.
Performance: In this comeback film, Karisma Kapoor has absolutely delivered a much-needed good performance. Her dialogue delivery in various dialects is superb. Rajneesh Duggal does not have much scope in the film, but he has used available space to show his acting prowess. As cop, Jimmy Shergill wins the heart of the audience. Aarya Babbar, Divya Dutta, Ravi Kishan, Ruslaan Mumtaz and Samir Kochhar have also done justice to their respective roles.
Himesh Reshammiya's music is a major highlight in the technical front. 'Tu Hi Rab Tu Hi Dua' has an ever-lasting impression. Praveen Bhatt's camera work is okay. The 3D work in the film seems to be unnecessary except for a few scenes.
Remarks: Overall, Vikram Bhatt has a wonderful story and he has a great attention to the details of the ages. If he had avoided the dragging moments in the second hours, Dangerous Ishhq could have been very interesting watch.
