Dedh Ishqiya starring Madhuri Dixit Nene, Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi and Huma Qureshi remained consistent on its 1st Monday as well earning 2.25 crores. The film’s total income so far now stands at 14.25 crores at the domestic box office.
A decadent masterpiece of sorts, the film is being hailed by critics as one of the most poignantly made films of recent times. Intricate and deep, the film is poetic and flows mostly in fine Urdu.
Though the main target audience for this one is only the intelligentsia, the film will also cause ripples amongst the single screen audiences for its bold climax. Expected to recover its expenses, the film will take a while before becoming a hit.
