Romance and love stories have always been quite favorites among cinegoers but it seems ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ is going to be quite out of the box and will make huge noise, when it is released next year.
The real life father-daughter duo Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor Ahuja have come together for the first time in a reel life story with an unconventional love story. The trailer of ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ hit the internet on Thursday.
This story is not the common one, which usually we see in films but definitely it’s a charming one and will surely leave an impact on your mind, that’s all we can assure you.
The film is all about a young girl named Sweety, played by Sonam Kapoor.
The story revolves around a father who wishes to get his daughter happily married. However, things don’t go as planned as the daughter Sweety has some hidden truth about her life. The twist comes in the story when that truth is revealed to her family!
The trailer opens with Sahil Mirza, played by Rajkummar Rao who invites the audience to a play titled ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’. While he was narrating the story which was written and directed by him, Sahil asked the audience to watch the play from their heart and not their brain.
Meanwhile, it shows Sweety (as a child) dreaming about her own fairytale love story and how even she’ll fall in love with someone who will sweep her off her feet one day. As she grows her father Balbir Choudhury (Anil Kapoor) and the family decide to find a suitable match for her and learnt that Sahil (Rajkummar Rao), who appears to be a close acquaintance of Choudhury family, loves her.
Soon comes a point where Sweety aka Sonam’s family misunderstands her friendship with Sahil aka Rajkummar Rao as love and decides to get them married. On the other hand, Sonam’s brother thinks his friend will be a suitable match for her while her grandmother seeks help from a matrimonial site.
That’s when Sonam rejects all those three suitors and makes a revelation about her preference in love, leaving her father in a state of shock.
Father Balbir (Anil Kapoor) looks down upon her and says, “I didn’t expect this from you.” However during this emotional encounter, Sweety also doesn’t hesitate from giving back a tight reply to her father, saying, “Even I didn’t expect this from you.”
The trailer ends with leaving such questions ‘Why did her father get upset on hearing her preference in love? Is it a love story of an inter-cast or will go beyond that?’
Apart from Sonam’s love story, Juhi Chawla’s brief appearances in the trailer also grabbed our attention. The entire movie is set in Punjab and it has been shot extensively in Patiala, according to reports.
The movie will mark Shelly Chopra Dhar’s debut venture as a director. The film is produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra in association with Fox Star Studios. The title ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ borrows from a very famous song from Anil Kapoor’s 1942: A Love Story (1994) directed by producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
The film is scheduled to hit the screens on February 1, 2019.
