Ishaqzaade: A Bloody Romance
Ishaqzaade is debut movie of Arjun Kapoor & Parineeti Chopra setup in backdrop of small town Almore, UP where two belongs to political rival of hindu & muslim. They both hated each other to their guts and literally wanted to kill each other. Setup in background of election season where both trying to outdo each other, Parma (played by Arjun) tell Zoya (played by Parineeti) that he loves her and win her heart and finally get married. Then movie takes a twist and turn to depict political interest and battle between two religion against the idea of hindu-muslim marriage.

The movie is fast paced and the new comers has done impressive job to keep the story fresh and interesting. The cinematography, picturesque, dialogs are very real and represent the entire story amicably. 
Good direction debut by Habib Faisal, superb background score by Ranjit Barot and excellent music by Amit Trivedi. On top of the that a very experimental climax.
An overall good watch. And yeah also the best part of movie was exclusive trailer of "Ek Tha Tiger"
