Meaningful Messages Hidden Under A Simple Story

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga looks like an ordinary love story except for the undercurrent and hidden messages. It’s not an exaggeration to say that this is a must-watch movie of the year.

The movie is about a girl name Sweety Chaudhury (Sonam Kapoor) whose family run garment business. She meets Sahil Mirza (Rajkummar Rao), a playwright who instantly has a crush on her. Sweety Chaudhury, however, has a secret to keep it herself. The couple then faces objections from her family. Fortunately, everything gets the right places in the end. Shelly Chopra Dhar has successfully told a meaningful story in a simple but effective way.

It Balances Between Emotions And Humour

I was afraid that it was gonna be mushy for the first time watching its trailer. In facts, it isn’t. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga balances the amount of emotion and humor so you will find it both entertaining and meaningful. It raises hope for a world where our love is free for no matter who we are in the same or opposite genders. Let love is what is it meant to be.

The first part of the movie is just like to be a typical rom-com with a touch of humor. However, the rest is outstanding with a few impressive scenes, especially when Sonam tells Rajkummar the truth. His reaction is definitely unforgettable.

But the most priceless moment belongs to Anil and his outburst of reading Sonam's diary. It’s heartbreaking to realize that there are people around us who seem to be free but turn out to live in their own cage. Anil Kapoor's performance is also brilliant which will stir you up.

With perfect casting, all of them function as a chain which bonds to each other. Sonam Kapoor completed her role effortlessly. With her gorgeousness, the actress has brought the cuteness into the character. Flaws in her performance are inevitable to the young actress, but she has nailed it anyway.

Another praise to Anil Kapoor as he will make you ponder at the ending. The film should have fallen apart without the excellent of the actress as she has brought the realistic to her character. Not to mention her effort of remaining the comic timing, it’s thrilling to see the chemistry between her and Anil Kapoor after all those years.

Abhishek Duhan is the most outstanding amongst the supporting cast. In the role of Sonam's brother. Other actors like Seema Pahwa or Cassandra are fine but there is nothing much to talk about their roles.

Rajkummar Rao Will Have More Female Fans

Given the fact that Rajkummar Rao took the spotlight of the film, his performance is super in all scenes. The bonds between him and other character are amazing. While you’re reading this review, the number of his female fan is soaring up every single minute.

Plus to the excellent casting, the movie also has a good taste of music and effective editing. Being shot in reallocation, the cinematography is realistic and beautiful too.

Apart from the freedom of love, the movie also focuses on the freedom of choosing jobs and about communalism. Kudos to Shelly Chopra Dhar of delivery all these subject into a united narration with delicacy.

It Has Few Flaws Too

In spite of good points, the movie has its downside too. The whole play wasn’t as influential as I expected. Anil’s family is afraid that she is in a relationship with a "musalmaan" as they’re against it. However, Anil’s dad seems to change his mind very quickly after a short conversation with Juhi. The lack of time also loosens the connection between Regina and Sonam.

To wrap up, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is not only a great entertainer but also an intended and meaningful film which deserves applause.
