Director: Shelly Chopra Dhar
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga is supposed to be a film about same-sex love. While it does explore that, it’s more about how Rajkummar Rao & Anil Kapoor’s characters and how they do everything.
The film begins with a wedding in which Sweety (Sonam Kapoor) starts getting shaadi ke rishte. Cut to a year later. She bumps into Sahil Mirza (Rajkummar Rao) at a theatre practice session in Delhi. Sahil is a play writer & director. He likes her immensely and even reaches at her home in Punjab. When he proposes, she tells him that she likes a girl.
It’s only at the intermission point that the film comes to its central plot when Sonam Kapoor reveals that she likes a girl. But we actually can’t even call it the central plot because it’s not shown in depth. Even the climax is very predictable and convenient.
Rajkummar Rao again proves what a fine actor he his. Anil Kapoor, who plays Sweety’s father, is fabulous. Both Anil and Rajkummar redeem the film to great extent. Juhi Chawla is superb. Sonam Kapoor needs to really improve her acting skills.
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga dekhne layak nahin hai. We give the film 2 stars.
