Lafangey Parindey - Movie Review

Yawn Out Loud
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi

After making us all weep (for one reason or another) with his tear-jerking Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, which had Rani Mukherjee crying out buckets, director Pradeep Sarkar changes lanes and steps into a territory already trodden by the likes of Vishal Bhardwaj and Anurag Kashyap. Lafangey Parindey is a story set in the maze of Mumbai’s chawls and has foul language aplenty. While unlike Vishal, Pradeep abstains from the expletives of the BC and MC standard, there’s a lot of street slang like ‘phat gayi’, ‘keeda’, ‘chaddi’, and not to forget that Deepika dialogue that got wolf whistles from the front benchers: “Aisi jagah laat maroongi, puri zindagi pakad ke baitha rahega”. Ouch! That almost felt.

The point is - if you are intentionally trying to adopt a style that’s not naturally yours, like stepping into a pair of sneakers that don’t fit you right, you are sure to fall with your face to the ground. That’s what Pradeep Sarkar does - try to tell a story that’s not his forte. The result? A movie that works only in fits and starts, but mostly leaves you in a fit of yawns. YOL!

One-shot Nandu (Neil Nitin Mukesh) is a local fighter of Tilak Wadi. He fights his opponents blindfolded, and often takes a lot of beating. But one deadly blow from him smack dab on the jaw of his every opponent makes him the undisputed winner who, at the end of every fight, gets a wad of money from his godfather Usman.

Pinky Palkar (Deepika Padukone), on the other hand, thinks she doesn’t belong to the lowly Tilak Wadi. She’s a talented dancer and has the dream of winning a talent show with her nifty roller-skating skills, a dream that’s cut short after an accident that leaves her blinded for life.

She’s blind as a bat, and he’s wild and guilty. Will Pinky’s dream of becoming famous come true? Will Nandu find redemption and love? Frankly, after the intermission you don’t even care to know these answers.
