Romeo and Juliet
Love can be a deadly game -- a war easy to begin, impossible to end. That’s the gist of director Manish Tiwary’s upcoming film Issaq, starring Prateik Babbar and newcomer Amyra Dastur in leading roles.
Issaq is an original Indian adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet set in Banaras.
The battle-hardened and pleasure-seeking Rahul (Prateik Babbar) and romantic yet headstrong Bachchi (Amyra Dastur) fall in love. Disregarding the consequences, the young lovers choose go ahead with the diktats of their hearts.
What follows is a high octane action-filled drama. Manish Tiwary's Issaq turns into a commentary on the meaning of love in contemporary India!
