DEDH ISHQIYA Synopsis (Story)

After bringing in some great moments in 2010’s Ishqiya, the duo of Khalujaan and Babban are back in director Abhishek Chaubey’s Dedh Ishqiya. What worked in Ishqiya was the element of surprise and the unpredictable twists and turns that came along the way. But what works in Dedh Ishqiya is the crackling humor, smart dialogues, lovely Urdu literature and shayari, along with some fine performances from its lead cast which make this sequel an enjoyable watch.


Khalujaan (Naseeruddin Shah) and Babban (Arshad Warsi) have stolen a necklace made of royal jewels and are on the run from their boss once again. They part ways and meet at the palace of the nawab of Mahmudabad, where Khalujaan is intended to win the heart of the nawab's widow Begum Para (Madhuri Dixit) who has organized a shayari competition at her palace. Babban ends up falling for Begum’s quick-witted friend Munniya (Huma Qureshi). However, things become complicated when a rich gangster, Jaan Mohammad (Vijay Raaz), enters the fray and also wants to marry Begum and become a nawab.

you are right, anubhav, it does have shedas of \"in bruges\", and arshad and naseer have more opportunities to show their comraderie than collin farell and brendan gleeson had. in \"omkara\" one comes away feeling that the story was over. \"ishqiya\" leaves you with a feeling that the adventure will continue but we will not be there to see it. it pays to not have typical bollywood heroes because then the writer and director have to compromise and give the actors dialogues and scenes so that their \"macho\" image remains intact. in babban and khalujaan we have adventurers more in the spirit of butch cassidy and the sundance kid.
