Laapataa Ladies reviews

Laapataa Ladies has received positive reviews from most critics. Shubhra Gupta on The Indian Express calls it a “delightful film". “The film is unapologetically message-y, but its strongly beating feminist heart overrides the broad brush strokes. Sometimes things need to be stated loud and clear," Gupta adds.

Rahul Desai of Film Companion calls it “solid, feel-good storytelling". “The smaller details, too, are so sincere that it hurts," Desai writes. “The intent is honest. The wit is situational. The imperfections are human. The limits are respected."

“Kiran Rao’s comeback is a terrific watch," says Tushar Joshi on India Today. “...if you invest your heart into this tale of two women gone missing, then you will be in for a treat. It’s time Kiran Rao made more movies for the audience."

“The film is breezy and light on its feet. It is never, therefore, in danger of being bogged down by the weighty issues that it addresses," writes Saibal Chatterjee on NDTV. “Laapataa Ladies gets so much right that a blip here or a blemish there can do no damage to the way it shapes up."

The movie had its world premiere as Lost Ladies at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 8.
