+ 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.
Noor Bukhari and Walid Hamid’s chemistry makes Ishq Positive a nice, fun film to watch.
Rate: 2.75 out of 5 stars
