Laila Majnu delivers what was missing from the silver screen, pure love!
Heart breaks are never pretty, but with a film like Laila Majnu, you will find yourself engaged and mesmerized by a heart break that is beautifully written and naturally shown.
Love and romance are the essence of almost every film, especially in Bollywood. But either there are few films with romance at their core or the films show a quickly established and hence feeble romance. The result is, zero connect.
But not anymore, we have Laila Majnu.

We are going to mention the director’s name first, Sajid Ali, for writing and directing this heartfelt film. Then we are going to mention Imtiaz Ali as his brother, of course in a cheering way, to say that the skill runs in genes perhaps.
A pure love story after a long long time.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Who isn’t familiar with classic folklore of Laila Majnu? Who doesn’t want a love story like that? And who doesn’t want them to have a happy ending. We all do. It breaks our heart every time we watch a rendition of these folklores onscreen.
But if heart breaks are this beautiful, capturing, natural and impassioned, we would love to watch them repeatedly.
Laila Majnu story continues but with a very charming treatment. The little moments make a big impact and the realness makes the connect. Plus, Sayak Bhattacharya’s cinematography of speaking-a-thousand-words Kashmir is so mesmerizing.
Well-written, well-treated, well-executed, and well-presented, you will find all this only if you believe in or ever believed in love. Or maybe you will start believing now, when if you see love being born, when you see it grow and escalate to an involuntary world. It is not some “for-the-heck-of-it-love-story” kind of film.
And then there is this flawed side of the film which you are not noticing and shouldn’t either, because everything in the film feels so pure, passionate and real. Every inch and drop of emotions are natural and thoughtfully established.
If Majnu watches this film, he will perhaps call Avinash Tiwary a bigger Majnu than him. What a performance. We will happily take this as his debut film and performance, we saw him in ‘Tu Hai Mera Sunday’. The madness and passion the Majnu on script must have had, Avinash triples it up and delivers.
Tripti Dimri, is the Laila for us, fun, crazy and spontaneous. She looked beautiful, smiled even more beautifully. What well-written roles and chemistry, we just couldn’t take our eyes off the Laila Majnu onscreen.
It was good to see Parmeet Sethi after quite some time now. Sumit Kaul will impress you with his cunning role of Ibban.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
What an album! From Atif Aslam to Arijit Singh to Mohit Chauhan, the songs are drenched in love and are so befitting to the film.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
If love story is what you live for, this is your film.
