Lafangey Parindey Movie Review by Movie Critics
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 3/5
LAFANGEY PARINDEY clearly belongs to Deepika Padukone, who suits the character and enacts it with such competence that it leaves you amazed.LAFANGEY PARINDEY may be predictable, but is engaging and entertaining nonetheless. A decent watch!
Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 2/5
‘Lafangey Parindey’ is the kind of film that doesn’t stay in your head much after you’ve left the cinema. And you should be happy for that! It’s a pointless, boring film. Watch it if you have 200 bucks to waste!
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 3/5
A little more verve however would have gone a long way in energising the show.
Komal Nahta (KoiMoi.com) 1.5/5
Lafangey Parindey doesn’t connect too well with the viewer. Great music and strong emotions could’ve done the trick. As it is, it will prove to be a loser in spite of a moderate budget. All in all, the film is low on sentiments, doesn’t strike a chord in the audience’s hearts and leaves them unaffected for the most part.
Kaveree Bamzai (India Today) 1.5/5
Watching both Deepika and Neil Nitin trying to get under the skin of their tough-as-nails characters is like watching two beautiful babies trying to put on Rambo acts. Cute but not enough. This one is straight to the DVD pile. Watch it on a rainy day. There’s lots of rain in the film as well. But no, Kaminey it ain’t.
Minty Tejpal (Mumbai Mirror) 1.5/5
Production design is smart, dialogues clever and cinematography sparkling, but the story never takes off and characters never connect.
Saibal Chatterjee (NDTVMovies.com) 3/5
Lafangey Parindey soars just high enough to stand a fair chance of garnering mass applause.
Khalid Mohamed (PassionForCinema.com) 1/5
Truly, Pradeep Sarkar’s third film Lafangey Parindey produced by Aditya Chopra would unsettle even the most patient cobra. Its two-hours running length seems like 20. Indeed you visibly age, ruminating about whatever happened to the director who was at least style-savvy in Parineeta, Laaga Chunari mein Daag.. Yaargh, or whatever?
Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times) 1.5/5
Such scatter-brained, mish-mash of a movie is only possible when the makers’ eyeballs are trained at some sucker or the other the cinema’s intended for, and not the soul of even a semblance of a script. I’m sorry, but my eyes are turning bleary now. Be careful. So would yours.
Sukanya Verma (Rediff) 2.5/5
Lafangey Parindey, like its attention-grabbing title, is unapologetically superficial with a brief attention span. It doesn’t dwell too long on the possible complications or questions that may arise in its protagonist’s lives and conveniently wiggles out of/wraps up any uneasy development.
Sukanya Venkatraghavan (Filmfare) 3/5
Lafangey Parindey is ultimately a film about love and trust. And we can never have enough of those.
K.K Rai (Stardust India) 1/5
Neil Nitin Mukesh-Deepika Padukone’s flick ‘Lafangey Parindey’ has stylish look but lacks soul. The film seems to be a collection of disjointed pairs with a shoddy editing work. Even the songs, which have traditionally been very strong point of Yashraj Films, are a big let down. A below average flick.
Sonia Chopra (Sify Movies) 3/5
you’ll be touched by this immersing, sensitive story that couldn’t have made it as a mainstream release a few years ago. Worth a watch!
Blessy Chettiar (DNA India) 3/5
Lafangey Parindey doesn’t disappoint you after taking the onus on behalf of Yash Raj Films to entertain you. It is worth a watch for the stubborn spirit of Mumbai that the film portrays so well
Pooja Rao (Mumbaikar.com) 2.5/5
Lafangey Parindey is neither a winner nor a loser. The substance is raw, similarities are many, and story is as predictable as it gets, yet between the flaws and grinds is an earnest youthful resonance and a wholesome human experience that celebrates the spirits of underdogs who are down in dust but don’t give up. Watch it if you’re a fan of Ms.D, pink-cheek Neil or Pradeep Sarkar.
