From the fiery heat of India comes a stunning movie that combines the fast-paced action sequences of The Bourne Supremacy with the sensual, highly-modern love story of Romeo + Juliet.

In small-town Almore – where pocket guns are a fashion accessory, and local yokels would kill for anything – two warring political families battle for control. Leading the action are the youngest members of the clans, rowdy rascal Parma and feisty, free-spirited Zoya. As a passion grows between the two, the whole town is dragged into an inferno of hate, revenge, bullets, and deceit.

With crackling sexual tension, shocking plot twists and a mesmerising soundtrack, ISHAQZAADE (The Love Rebels / इशाक्जादे) is the perfect movie for both fans and newbies to Bollywood cinema.

★★★★ “A volatile and intense story with ample doses of fanatical romance. ” BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA

★★★★Ishaqzaade is written in blood, dipped in passion, and shot in vivid colours of life, strife and other bitter embers of the communal fire.” CINEBASTI

★★★ “Most riveting in this love-hate plot, is the (fore)playful chemistry between the two, with their volatile verbal wars, and sexed-up lovemaking; even between chases and gunshots” TIMES OF INDIA
