A lazy Sunday hello, my frEEk fellows!

Just chanced upon the latest offering from the stables of Vishal Bhardwaj and Shemaroo Entertainment: ISHQIYA" starring the unlikely duo of Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi in lead. ISHQIYA is a story of two small time hitmen, played by Shah and Warsi, who take refuge in a small town after a hit gone wrong only to fall in love with the (demure?) village belle played by Vidya Balan ; who seems to have a few tricks up her sleeve!

The chemistry between Warsi and Shah seems to rival that between Warsi's previous onscreed partner Sanjay Dutt) in the Munnabhai series and Vidya Balan appears to break off her goody two shoes image.

The movie for me bears shades of the cult hit In Bruges which starred Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson as two hitmen who take shelter in the seemingly nondescript town of Bruges after a hit goes wrong.

Remember my fellow frEEks that Vishal Bhardwaj and co. succesfully desified Shakespeare in Maqbool and Omkara, and we can suitably trust him to add enough desi spice to "inspiration".

extra frEEky: can't wait!!!
