Movie review---Ek ladki ko dekha toh aisa laga



Rajkumar Rao plays an aspiring theatre director , who falls in love with a girl played by Sonam Kapoor in a chance encounter in Delhi . He chases her all the way to her town in Punjab called Moga . Here he encounters the opposition of her family headed by her father played by Anil Kapoor . Reason---Rajkumar Rao plays a muslim and the girl's family is not ready to accept him due to religious differences .

But Sahir Mirza ( Rajkumar Rao ) believes that Sweety ( Sonam Kapoor ) is in love with him and tries to woo her . What he does not know is a secret that shakes him when it is revealed to him ; Sweety is a lesbian and she loves another girl played by Regina Cassandra .

Sahir however decides to unite Sweety with her lover and stays on in Moga to make her family accept her relationship with another girl . So does he succeed ? The answer is obvious , for the film is a handiwork of the liberal lobby .

The film's attempts at convincing the townsfolk of Moga of the need to accept lesbian/gay relationships are unconvincing and would not work in real life . However the film does make an emotional pitch to the viewer to accept these kind of relationships and the audience which was sniggering at first did go somewhat quiet towards the end .

Acting wise the movie is decent enough and background music and songs are decent . Photography is okay . Actually in my opinion it is best to simply ignore LGBTs without harassing them , but the Bollywood which is filled with many gay people is bent on giving them publicity .

Verdict---Okay .

Two and a half stars out of five .

Talking Re: Movie review---Ek ladki ko dekha toh aisa laga

Without seeing the movie, but reading the review above, I can summarize as
  • Boy falls in love with girl as per age old Bollywood formula
  • Boy is Muslim and Girl is Hindu
  • Typical Bollywood political correctness and Hindu Muslim Unity bites director's ass so there will be Hindu Muslim Bhai Bhai type scenes
  • Its 2019 and so something shocking is needed, especially since its from Hollywood. So there is a lesbian angle.
  • The girl is a lesbian
  • In the end lesbian girl gets her lesbian partner thanks to Muslim boy.
  • Audience is shown nothing hot and steamy. So audience has to imagine and jerk off on their own.
  • End of story

I would have changed the script where the Muslim guy rapes the lesbian duo. It would have been a super hit. Everyone would have something in it for them. Hindus would be happy since it would portray Muslim boy as bad. Heteros would be happy since lesbians were taught lesson. Guys like me would be happy with a threesome sex scene. Lesbians (and women in general) would be happy because it validates their world view where all men are assholes. What a wasted opportunity!!

What about Muslims? I guess, they would be happy that a muslim get to rape a hindu girl? To make it more interesting the second lesbian should be a muslim.

Agree... it is a lose-lose proposition. If Tantric is happy, it makes me sad.

Let's make the Muslim woman slightly chubby, like Mandakini or Nirupa Roy.

Re: Movie review---Ek ladki ko dekha toh aisa laga

I think, like Anil Kapoor, his daughter Sonam is a sameswx homo in real life.

Anil Kapoor rumors are there since 90s along with Jackie and Anupam Kher of those days.

Re: Movie review---Ek ladki ko dekha toh aisa laga

Interesting. That could also be a tweak in the plot. At the end Jackie shroff makes an entry as Anil Kapoor's old love and the song is 'Ek ladke ko dekha to aisa laga'/
