Out of the blue, comes a love story with a disturbing end and the lead cast, which banks heavily on Sneha Ullal and Mugdha Godse, live up to the mark to pull off a decent performance.
The beginning is a bit tacky though, with first-time director in Bollywood who is a well-known name in Gujarati cinema, Jashwant Gangani, taking time to find his bearings. But once he gets his foot in, he extracts good performances from the two leading ladies. Nishant Malkani who makes his debut has to work a lot apart from just expressing with his eyes.
The beginning scenes are rather tame, especially after a disco song where Suhani (Mugdha Godse) is attacked by goons. Out of the blue comes Swaagat (Nishant Malkani) and saves her using his bare hands to flatten them.
Soon we learn that Suhani is suffering from IED (Intermittent Explosive Disorder). She gets into a fit of rage at the slightest provocation, sometimes behaving grossly out of proportion. Her doctor advises her father to get her married as ''love is the best solution in the world.'' So Suhani's parents agree to a match with Swaagat since their fathers are both business partners and they are celebrating their 25 years of partnership as well.
Boy likes Suhani but does not love her. He is in a fix, and since he does care about her, agrees to the marriage despite expressing his fears to his parents who are only too happy to send him to the gallows.
Meanwhile, Suhani's cousin Rumzum (Sneha Ullal) has come to India from England, with her parents and after their engagement, their parents decide to send the couple, Rumzum and their friends out on a trip to Rajasthan. CHECK OUT- Bezubaan Ishq : Songs Lyrics
Here is where the story takes a turn with Swaagat losing his heart to Rumzum and Suhani witnessing the 'quiet romance'. At one point in time, Suhani threatens to jump off from a height.
Sneha Ullal, back on the Bollywood circuit after a long time is impressive as the docile lover. This is a much-improved Sneha one sees. Mugdha as the explosive character is the surprise packet. She does everything right [including going off the hook at the slightest pretext], to take the film to its climax. Your heart reaches out to her.
The dialogues are quite deep. ''Dil ko dimaag nahi hota.'' ''Mujhe pyaar karna aata, nibhaana nahi.''
The best one has to be, ''Pyaar mein deewanapan achha hai, lekin bagair pyaar ka deewanapan?''
BEZUBAAN ISHQ is a heart-breaking love story with the IED-suffering and 'about-to-be-married' Suhani ending the story the only way she can.
For a first-timer, Gangani has shown promise. If he can get a grip on sober sets, and a tad dimmer lighting, the end product will be much better. Also, the music could have played a big part in adding to the tale.
BEZUBAAN ISHQ is a surprise packet with decent performances; there's honesty in its approach.
