Laila Majnu action and direction review
Avinash Tiwari, who played a role of Kais has put lot of sweat to bring his character alive. Avinash also did a good homework to play the role, which you notice in his character in film. Undoubtedly, Avinash will be uniquely identified in the glamor industry after the film. You must be appreciated that Kashmiri actors Mir Sarwar and Sumit Kaul, who made such a distinct identity of their character which you will remember even coming out from the cinema theatre in this film Tripti Dimri played Laila’s character and nothing extra ordinary notices in her character. If she is looking for a long innings in the industry, then she must really work heard and improve her acting skills.
Director Sajid Ali found a very weak and scattered script which repeatedly swollen. The biggest minus point in the film is that Laila-Majnu’s love story shows doesn’t show united. Story line make heard for audience to digest such one-sided love story. Screenplay appear extremely weak in many places. Sometimes it looks like Ekta Kapoor TV Serial with the feeling of Maha Episode. But we should give the credit to the scenic beauty presented throughout the film. It does not miss the opportunity to showcase the beauty of Kashmir.
