Laapata Ladies is one such film you should look out for. If you haven't had a good laugh in a long time, this film is for you. Without raising the term 'feminist', Laapata Ladies has showcased the societal issues of women, and the problems they face, which people avoid talking about till today. Laapata Ladies promises a ride of various emotions. The film is scheduled to release in theatres on March 1. Let's delve into the review of the film.


Laapata Ladies begins with the scene of Phool's farewell, where Deepak departs for his home taking his wife from her home. The moment, they reach his house, they realise Deepak's wife has been mistakenly swapped. The new woman is Pushpa Rani. Troubled, shocked and surprised Deepak begins searching for his wife Phool with the help of the police. While Deepak is busy searching for his wife Phool, the other woman Pushpa Rani who is staying at their house freely, comes under suspicion. On the other hand, Phool is waiting for her husband at the railway station patiently without losing hope. Towards the end of the film, Pushpa's real identity is revealed and also showcases the problems faced by the women and how to solve them.


Sparsh Shrivastava's portrayal of Deepak in the film was very impactful and high-powered. Every expression of his was so evident, which made his character very realistic. In the era of machoism, Deepak was not deterred from expressing how he felt. Sparsh Shrivastava perfectly fits in the shoes of Deepak. Pratibha Rana as Pushpa has done justice to her character. She showcases perfect blend of being confusion and being mysterious till the end of the film. Her role in playing the character in where she doesn't shy away from helping others and giving advice to the one in need is very powerful. Phool played by Nitisha Goel, is the strongest character out of all. Her getting separated from her husband and looking out for herself is nothing less compared to other characters. Manju Mai played by Chhaya Kadam is the most simplest yet complex person in the film. One needs to understand this complex character at a deeper level. Ravi Kishan as Manohar, the policeman is a sneaky character. Of course, one would need to watch till the end to not to get confused. Overall, the cast has done a perfect job in portraying their respective roles and has done justice to their characters. The film is fast-paced and will keep you on the edge of your seat. 


One will be hooked to the screen right from the beginning of the film. Scene by scene is like turning page by page of a novel and one will be curious to know what's gonna happen next. Kiran Rao's directorial after 13 years is worth the watch. The film will of course make you laugh one moment and make you emotional the next moment. The film gives a message to the people in a very easy manner and Viplav Kumar and Kiran Rao have created the cinematic magic perfectly. Not a single moment you will be able to miss in the film. 



The cinematography of this film is brilliant. Every scene and sequence in this film is convincing and effective. Apart from this, the songs Sajni, Doutwa and Beda Par are songs perfect fit as per the situation. 


Laapata Ladies overall is a must-watch. The film definitely will give the motivation to work out the problems in an effective manner. Be it being in a jolly mood or being serious, the film has showcased every emotion.
