Our Opening Day Prediction

‘Ek Ladki Kop Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ is a movie based on two people who are in love with each other but family is not ready to accept it first as it is  a same sex love. The story starts with the whole typical bollywood drama where the father is on a hunt of finding a Groom for his daughter and the daughter never agreeing to marry a man but the father never really tries to know why the daughter does not want to marry or maybe just not marry a man. The trailer seemed quite intriguing and will definitely strike a chord among the masses as it is a movie that will educate the masses and make them more open on the concept of same sex love. Here are some factors that we think will work in its favour.


‘Ek Ladki Kop Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ is a movie about love. It focuses more on the LGBTQ community and how they should be treated and respected for what their choices are towards love. The daughter has interest in girls. The family she was born in is an orthodox family and the society she breathes in, is too. So, she never had the courage to disclose her real self to her loved one’s about how she feels about other women. She hides the truth for several years and finally when the time comes she tells her family that she loves a girl and not a boy and to that the family reacts in a way that any Indian family would.  Shelly Chopra Dhar has portrayed the concept in the best possible way and audiences will definitely go to their nearest theatres to watch the movie on big screen.


Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor are seen on the screen together for the very first time. Sonam is seen playing Anil’s Daughter who is not straight. She is seen playing a sweet Indian daughter who is obviously her dad’s favourite and Raj Kumar Rao shown as a man who falls in love with her; initially he is not aware of her being a lesbian and they share good bond of friendship even after knowing her truth he continues to love her just the same. Overall all the actors are doing their best job in the roles they have received.


The movie being of a genre that educates the masses it is definitely going to be loved by people and this being a Comedy-of-age genre is definitely going to be loved by people.  Movies like this which give importance and educate us about LGBTQ have not been released on larger scale, at least in India but this being a big screen release will definitely be liked by the Indian audiences.


Ek ladki dekha toh aisa laga album seems to be vibrant and has been love and appreciated by the audience. Especially, the title track recreated by Rochak Kohli.  He has composed all the songs of the movie and the songs ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ and ‘Gud Naal Ishq Mittha’ are being loved by the audience.
