First of all, Ittefaq is not a remake of 1969 Ittefaq film. The Storyline of the movie is though inspired by 1969 released Ittefaq. The storyline of both films is entirely different for sure and won’t be a direct rip-off, of the original that was regarded as one of the path-breaking films for the lead actors then. The crime thriller film is being co-produced by Dharma and Red chilies entertainment, along with B R studios; directed by B.R. Chopra’s grandson Abhay Chopra which revolves around two murders one suicide two version of a story and a cop who tries to solve the case. Believe me; this suspense thriller is must watch for everyone who loves this kind of genre. And at last, climax makes you fully satisfied and is the best part of the movie. At the end of the 1969 crime thriller movie, it was Nanda who murdered her husband. If the rumors are true, then Sonakshi, who will be portraying Nanda’s role, will not be shown as the culprit. Instead, the movie makers intend to give a new twist to the tale. Apart from that, the new movie will have some songs, something that was not a part of the original film.
The excellent screenplay of the first half is fast and outstanding, but films sometimes get slow in the second half but won’t make you bore at all.
Cinematography and editing of the movie are outstanding. The background music of the film is good and suits the genre of film. Siddharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha delivered excellent performance in their roles of Vikram and Maya respectively. Akshaye Khanna was outstanding in his role as a cop whenever he comes on screen its pleasure to watch him. He is such a brilliant actor. Bollywood directors and produces should please-2 give this man more roles. Debutant Abhay Chopra’s direction is excellent and up to the mark.
He narrated a well-written story in a brilliant way and keeps you engaged and involved in the movie and makes you keep guessing who the culprit is. Dialogues are written by Abhay Chopra, Shreyas Jain, and Nikhil Mehrotra are excellent. It makes you laugh sometimes and help to build suspense and tense in the Movie. Personally, I like the dialogue delivery of Akshay Khanna. He shines most in the film and is good to see him back in action again.
