Cast & Credits
Ishqiya explores desire, greed, and revenge. Khalujan (Naseeruddin Shah) and Babban (Arshad Warsi) are two thieves on the run from their boss. They seek refuge with an old friend and subsequently meet his widow, Krishna (Vidya Balan). Both are drawn to her – what ensues is an intense and at times surreal drama that reverses tropes of the widow as the “victim”.
