1. Koimoi : 4/5 by Umesh Punwani . Visit site for more
The madness called as Avinash Tiwary, songs speak louder than dialogues, Imtiaz Ali’s writing & a fact that love is such a vast ground to explore – Imtiaz always finds a new corner presenting it in a beautiful way!
2. Hindustan Times: 3.5/5 by Raja Sen. Visit site for more
“Laila Majnu is a thoughtfully written film, where the escalation of feelings appears as natural as it can, and characters stay credible even as the intensity becomes unbearable. At different times, first the boy, and later the girl’s father, in entirely varied contexts, say nearly the same thing: “If people are saying something, it must be true.” That may as well be said of stories we pass on across generations. “
3. Times of India: 3/5 by Reza Noorani. Visit site for more
“This is a love story of extremes and at times, the parts of the film do seem a bit unbelievable. When you’re retelling a classic tragedy about undying and unrequited love like ‘Laila Majnu’, you can’t expect bubble-gum romance. Sajid’s effort is achingly honest and it is visible throughout the film. In his first film, he takes a very deep look at romance and there’s definitely no space for frivolity here. With all its intensity and passion, it’s a good break from breezy romcoms and one that will stir emotions within. “
4. Firstpost: 2/5 by Anna MM Vetticad. Visit site for more.
“The biggest plus point of Sajid Ali’s Laila Majnu is its young lead pair whose acting confidence and screen presence bely their lack of experience. Besides, the chemistry between them is electric. Tripti Dimri is pretty and imbues her Laila with an edge that makes the character’s constant flirtations with danger believable “
Laila Majnu Story:
“Some love stories never die because some lovers never give up on their love! Imtiaz Ali and Ekta Kapoor’s Laila Majnu is one such eternal love story. Set in Kashmir, the story revolves around Kais (Avinash Tiwary) and Laila (Tripti Dimri) whose journey of love is filled with insurmountable obstacles. Based on the classic story of Laila Majnu, this contemporary take on the tale has been penned by Imtiaz Ali.”
