lalbaugchi rani-01Directed by Laxman Utekar, Lalbaugchi Rani is all about Sandhya (Veena Jamkar), who is not your regular, girl next door; she is a special and that’s what makes this film stand apart.

Sandhya ventures out of her house with her parents on her 24th birthday after a long time. What starts as a happy day for the special girl and her family soon turns into a nightmare when Sandhya goes missing in Mumbai.

Despite the worried parent’s best efforts, it seems impossible to find Sandhya. On the other hand, Sandhya keeps meeting new people and experiencing the soul of Mumbai. Her innocence is such that it can turn even the most hardened criminal into a nice person; make you feel happy and even make you look at the brighter side of life.

The film has an episodic feel to it as the central character is constantly in the more, meeting new people and trying to either imbibe something from them or leave an impact on them.

Lalbaugchi Rani manages a reasonably strong feel good experience, without shying away from the darker aspects of the theme. The film has a format, which is tough to handle and both Laxman and Veena have give justice to it.

The film is technically sound and needless to say the cinematography is one that stands out. However, the issue with this film is it’s pace. After a point one starts to feel the pressure and slowly and stately boredom sets in.

Dialogues become repetitive and so do the situations. Had the maker, chopped the film a bit, it would have been almost flawless. Lalbaugchi Rani is more about exploring people in Mumbai and what all they go through in their lives. Do catch this one, as it will for sure bring a smile to your face and may be a tear in your eye.

Rating: Three And A Half
