Disha Patani to Replace Kriti Sanon in Mohit Sur's Upcoming Film!?

As we all know, Mohit Suri is planning a film with Aditya Roy Kapur and 'Raabta' fame Kriti Sanon is rumored as the lead actress. But, as per the recent reports, it seems Disha Patani is all set to replace the Raabta actor in the film. 

According to a report by DNA, Suri had approached Sanon in the first place but her dates for this film clashed with those allotted for Housefull 4. Suri reportedly didn't intend to suspend his schedule and hence considered Patani for the same role.

The DNA report also suggests that sources within the industry claim that a confirmation regarding this development will be out soon (in about a week) as Patani gives her nod to do the film. The film is reportedly a love triangle. While Aditya and Patani (if she accepts the offer) are two characters in the film, another male lead will also be roped in.

Daawat-e-Ishq - Movie Review

Verdict - "Tame and lifeless. Daawat-e-Ishq is a lazy film enacting in a safe-mode."

Let it be a success or an unfortunate failure at the box-office. I eternally buoy up movies which think out-of-the-box and try something diverse and new, but with Daawat-e-Ishq I just can't sustain it.

Hyderabad's Gulrez (Parineeti Chopra) is a typical fantasist who dreams about an enchanted life all the time and after a bad relationship with her dreamy boyfriend, things start to dwindle away from her. As a consequence, she formulates a new thought that can fulfill all her dreams. What is the plan behind Gulrez's iniquitous brain? *facepalm*

By judging from the first thirty minutes of the movie, although it appeared to be little asinine, I thought that the movie took it's chances to try and deliver something unusual and diverse. There's always a possibility to turn things around, incorporate few startling twists and produce a fascinating climax, but the movie was lazy enough to do that, it falls into same redundant clichés we usually expect and moreover people want to experience something remarkable other than a happy ending.

Now! Who should we blame? Director Habib Faisal? I'l give him points for the try, but there's nothing to crave about. The story started on a good note by developing the characters and getting to the focal point rapidly. Once it gets to the actual plot it started to descend and by the end it is nowhere to be found.

On a brighter note, I genuinely liked the performances in the movie. Aditya Roy Kapur sparkles each and every time he's on screen. He brought the vivacity to his character and even in the lackluster moment of the movie he cheered me up a bit and I completely enjoyed him doing these type of characters.

Parineeti Chopra in one of a kind, she chooses challenging roles and executes them flawlessly and she's splendid here too. Her charm and vitality completely worked to every extent and her performance is one of the reason why the movie is tolerable. Honorable mention to Anupam Kher for his distinct character and a decent performance.

Nonetheless, Daawat-e-Ishq can be described as an appealing gift box which is eye-catching to gaze at, but when you start to unwrap it, you will get the weary feel to put aside and move on with other things. Unusual things happen, but I do expect something remarkable. It was disappointing and completely has no appealing components to boost up your expectations.

My Rating - 2/5
Grade - C (Meh! Probably a rental)
