Like Ki To Lag Gayi (2011) Hindi Movie Review Aggregator
Directed and written by Rakesh Mehta, ‘Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi’ , the Hindi film that stars Kay Kay Menon, Ranvir Shorey, Pradhuman Singh, Manu Rishi Chadha, Neha Bhasin and Tom Alter in the key roles has been released. Going by the critics’ opinions, Iss Film Ki Toh Lag Gayi!!
IBN Live thinks that the film has a confused script: “‘Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi’ is slow but that’s not the prime concern. It doesn’t convey anything which was expected from a film with four characters carrying four separate notions. An amalgamation of emotions, ‘Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi’ lacks the punch, and one can find it tough to look at the screen throughout the film.”
DNA India feels the film is best avoided: “The director, screenplay and dialogue writer Mehta chooses to place the stories in Mumbai, but except for paying lip service to its ghost, does nothing to involve the viewer. Usual suspects Gateway of India, BSE building, VT station make easy cameos as representatives of Mumbai. There’s no reason to go pay and watch them on the big screen. Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi is best avoided.”
Rediff affirms that the film lacks imagination: “Worst of all, this is a film that will be remembered for two things: casting Razak Khan against type as a suave prince, and more shockingly, the heroine uttering the unutterable, vis-à-vis screen baddie Shakti Kapoor “That man looks so innocent.” What a terribly boring time spent at the movies.”
