Laila Majnu, Movie Review: True Love Truly Worth Your Ticket
a

Feuding families and passionate love set in today's times. You may ask: So what's new? Yet, it's a very fresh film with two interesting newcomers Tripti Dimri and Avinash Tiwary. You will come out of it glad that you spent your last two-and-half hours seeing something that will stay with you for a long time. You will see virgin love, where the two neither marry nor consummate their affair- and you will see it loaded with dollops of innocence. Go for it.

Tripti steals the show, especially in the first half. She is so uninhibited and has done a better job than some of the the other heroines who are here in this industry just for their beautiful face and good fashion sense. Tripti can travel far if filmmakers show faith in her- and they should. Watch her in the romantic scenes, and she can cry too which is a quality that only good actors are gifted with. On the other hand, Avinash hams a bit in a couple of his romantic scenes but his output is terrific as he transforms from the happy-go-lucky Qais to the obsessed Majnu. Thereafter, this boy takes the film by the collar and runs with it to the climax, almost single-handedly.

The script is breezy, thanks to Imtiaz Ali and his bother Sajid (director)- and if it drags in certain portions which it does a little after the interval, it quickly compensates to make you spring back again. The highlight of the film is the Kaafir song, where Tripti in white looks a million bucks and the film hastens to the climax in the last stanza itself. That's the portion of the film which belongs to Avinash and he holds on to it with both hands.
