Is two good-looking lead pair, with some comedy, enough to make a film work? Read further to find out.


Ruhi Singh belongs to an affluent family and is the apple of the eye of her father Chetan Pandit, who is a politician. Ruhi is living in South Africa and after virtually battling with her father to stay alone, so that she can be independent, succeeds in her attempt. In the meantime, Ruhi’s father takes the responsibility of India’s Prime Minister, much to the surprise of everyone. Rhea’s life takes a different route from then on… Javed Jaffrey and Lisa Ray are given the responsibility of being her guards. Rhea, who is visibly upset with this, plans to leave her house thereby teaching a lesson or two to her father. And there is a terrorist gang who are hatching a plan to abduct Ruhi. While Ruhi runs away from her house to enjoy a life of freedom, she bounces on Krishna Chaturvedi, who protects her like a superman. And yes, you guessed it right! Love blossoms between the two. Well, watch the movie to know more.

Star Performances

Well, Ruhi Singh’s last venture was the Madhur Bhandarkar directorial venture Calendar Girls. In this film, she is quite ok as the lively girl who converses in “social media” language. Krishna Chaturvedi, a famous model, has done a fair job, considering that he is a newcomer. He also looks good on screen. Javed Jaffery and Lisa Ray are pitiably wasted in this film.


Ishq Forever, directed by Sameer Sippy, is inspired by a couple of Hollywood films. But that is not the issue here. One significant concern is what is the main responsibility of Lisa and Javed? Is it to spend time in burying their hatchets or safeguarding Ruhi?

What’s there?

  • The story is well-conceived.
  • The locales are a treat to the eyes.
  • There are some unexpected twists that will keep you engrossed. 

What’s not there?

  • In spite of its commendable plot the film is not presented well.
  • The action scenes are choreographed in an amateurish manner. 
  • The onscreen chemistry between Ruhi and Krishna is not appealing.
  • The characters of the lead pair could have been well crafted.
  • The comedy of Javed and Lisa is sometimes irritating. 
  • Well, Nadeem Saifi of the renowned Nadeem-Shravan duo, has returned back after a long hiatus of six years. When one considers his accomplishments Ishq Forever surely isn’t one of his best works. Being a romantic film and having a catchy title the composer should have worked magic with melody, which pitiably is missing in this movie. The music is just average, leave alone Bilkul Socha Na, which is relatively good.


Watch Ishq Forever only if you are a loyal follower of romantic films. But don’t blame me if you don't like the film!
