This Is The Film To Watch Out For The Performances Of Sonam And Rajkumar Rao, Especially For The Story
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is a brave, fascinating and phenomenal piece to celebrate the discrimination of homosexuality. I just adore the director Shelly Chopra and Gazal Dhaliwal who broke the monotony and presented us a difficult topic with full dignity.
Direction: Shelly Chopra Dhar
Cast: Sonam Kapoor, Rajkumar Rao, Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Seema Pahwa
Sonam Kapoor is playing the role of a lesbian girl who is having a life of full of peer pressure. The society judges her and she makes a silence with the family about her sexuality.
Rajkumar Rao is the play writer who narrates a play to tell the people that we should respect every form of love. This is the film which celebrates love.
The playwright Saahil Mirza comes in Punjab’s Moga town from Delhi to meet Sweety Chaudhry played by Sonam. He is in love with Sweety but he later meets the new reality of Sonam Kapoor that she is bisexual. Mirza writes a play on the complete story of Sweety Chaudhry. He presents the play in the Moga town and tells the forms of love. The climax scene was impressive.
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is a good take on LGBTQ rights. It’s simply outstanding and phenomenal cinema. The way story presented, it marks the beautiful direction of Shelly Chopra and the screenplay of Gazal Dhaliwal.
Music is heart touching and nice. The songs ‘Ishq Meetha’ and the title track from Darshan Raval are nice. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is a very simple and beautiful love story. The story needs an applaud.
Juhi Chawla and Anil Kapoor were simply best with their chemistry. New face Regina Cassandra is the delight to watch. Her chemistry with Sonam Kapoor is the prettiest thing in the film.
I totally admire the team of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga who took a bold and difficult topic to make a strong impact. This is the film to watch out for the performances of Sonam and Rajkumar Rao And especially for the story. I remember the climax scene, when Anil Kapoor says a dialogue on homosexuality, “ye koi beemari nhi hai, ye pyaar hai” (This is not the disease, this is love). This is how we should understand and accept the love in each form.
