Ishq Vishk Rebound: A Rebound That Misses the Mark?

Ishq Vishk Rebound: A Rebound That Misses the Mark?

“Ishq Vishk Rebound,” the religious successor to the 2003 Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao rom-com “Ishq Vishk,” hit theaters on June 21, 2024. The film, directed with the aid of Nipun Dharmadhikari, takes the conventional youth friends trope and injects it with a modern dose of heartbreak, rebound relationships, and the ever-gift query: can pals come to be fans?

The story revolves around Raghav (Rohit Saraf), Sanya (Pashmina Roshan), and Sahir (Jibraan Khan), a good-knit trio on the grounds that formative years. Sanya develops emotions for Sahir, and their courting blossoms. Raghav, the writer of the group, remains on the sidelines, content to witness their love tale spread. However, matters take a flip for the worse whilst Sanya and Sahir cut up. Enter the “rebound” element – Raghav, ever the supportive pal, reveals himself interested in Sanya as she navigates the choppy waters of heartbreak.

The film treads familiar territory. The “will-they-might not-they” dynamic among childhood buddies is a properly-worn route in rom-coms.  “Ishq Vishk Rebound” attempts to differentiate itself via exploring the complexities of rebound relationships and the ability moral dilemmas that get up when emotions increase for a first-class friend’s ex. The query of “bro code” is thrown round, but the film would not delve too deeply into the ethical complexities.

The performances are first rate. Rohit Saraf, regarded for his charming portrayals in films like “Dear Zindagi” and “The Sky Is Pink,” brings a likable vulnerability to Raghav. Pashmina Roshan, making her debut, holds her own,  convincingly navigating the emotional rollercoaster of a current breakup. Jibraan Khan, though, feels underdeveloped as Sahir, leaving a  void inside the meant love triangle.

One of the largest criticisms of the film is its lack of originality. While the 2003 “Ishq Vishk” wasn’t with out its flaws, it captured a certain younger strength and innocence that appears lacking within the reboot.  “Ishq Vishk Rebound” feels extra synthetic, with characters that lack the depth and relatability of their predecessors.

The song, a essential element in any Bollywood movie, is a combined bag. The name music, a remake of the original’s peppy wide variety, fails to recapture the magic.  However, a few new songs, like “Dil Ko ये क्या हो गया”  ([YouTube Ishq Vishk Rebound – Official Trailer]),  provide a current twist and are catchy sufficient.

The film’s visuals are satisfactory, with picturesque university campuses and scenic locales imparting a backdrop for the blossoming (and floundering) romances. However, the cinematography does not take any creative dangers, counting on preferred rom-com aesthetics.

Does “Ishq Vishk Rebound” live as much as the legacy of the original?  The answer is a resounding no.  While the film tackles applicable themes like rebound relationships and the complexities of friendship, it fails to execute them in a sparkling or engaging manner. The predictable plot, underdeveloped characters, and absence of originality go away  a good deal to be preferred.

Is it a whole washout? Not always.  For the ones seeking a mild-hearted rom-com with a predictable storyline, “Ishq Vishk Rebound” may provide a innocent  diversion. The movie’s biggest power lies in its younger solid, whose performances hold a few promise. However, for those hoping to recapture the magic of the 2003 film, this  rebound falls flat.
