+ Plot

Rajjo can’t decide whether she should be with the one she loves or should continue pursuing her career as a drama artist.





+ High Points

i – Good effort by Noor Bukhari, in terms of direction… keeping in mind that it was Sangeeta who was actually hired to do the job.

ii – The lukewarm humor kept the interest level higher than what most of the people had anticipated from it.

iii Inclusion of Sonu Sood as the film’s narrator was something ‘new and different’ for the usage of a foreign celebrity.

iv – Some of the songs, including its lyrics are well written.

v – Cinematography of the songs’ sequences is above average.





+ Low Points

i – A very common story, plot is overused. There’s nothing new to watch.

ii – Better or well-known, good actors had surely uplifted the film into much more memorable one.

iii – A lot of work needed to improve the screenplay, it’s just… embarrassing.




+ Overall

Noor Bukhari and Walid Hamid’s chemistry makes Ishq Positive a nice, fun film to watch.
