Ishq Vishk (Love Romance) is a 2003 Bollywood film starring Shahid Kapoor, Amrita Rao and Shenaz Treasurywala. It is directed by Ken Ghosh and produced by Kumar Taurani and Ramesh S. Taurani and was released on April 10, 2003.
Rajiv (Shahid Kapoor) wants to be one of the popular kids of his college. However, due to the lack of a girlfriend, Danny (Shabhir) and Javed (Kapil Jhaveri) mock him. He decides to ask Payal (Amrita Rao) to become his girlfriend and tells her that he's in love with her. Payal returns his "feelings" and agrees. Both of them accompany Danny, Javed and their girlfriends to a midnight picknick - however, Rajiv's drink is laced by Danny and, being intoxicated, he behaves badly with Payal. They are not able to make up and their relationship falls apart.
Just after that, Alisha Sahay (Shenaz Treasurywala) begings to attend Spencer College. She is modern, bold and beautiful and Rajiv wants to make her his girlfriend (as he promises to make the most beautiful girl in the college his girlfriend) - and succeeds. He spends time with Alisha, and in-between, with Payal, with whom he has rekindled a friendship. Though Alisha is nice, Rajiv realizes that it is Payal he is really in love with. However, Payal slowly but steadily starts to adapt Alisha's prospects of life and looses her traditional values, despite Rajiv telling her she's perfect the way she is. Also, it seems that she starts to fall in love with Mambo (Vishal Malhotra), which leaves Rajiv jealous.
When Alisha finds out that Payal is Rajiv's ex-girlfriend, she tells Payal to back-off. Mambo tries to intervene, but his actions are misunderstood by Rajiv and they have a fight. Rajiv leaves with Alisha and involuntarily tells her that he's really in love with Payal. At a party, he apologizes and admits his love for Payal; she accepts both. Alisha gives up on Rajiv and leaves - and Mambo gets the girl he has been in love with for a year, Polly.
