Marriage is nothing new in cinema. The most innovative thing about this topic in cinema is how creatively one presents this topic to the audience. Ajay Naik the man behind Lagna Pahave Karun (LPK) has beautifully told this story about the perception of marriage within different generations.

Some believe in Horoscope as far as marriage in concerned, which includes people born 40 years ago from now and before that, while current generation has a very practical opinion. But then in this era of practical thinking there are people like Aditi (Mukta Barve) who always prefer thinking before taking any decision, no matter how small or huge that decision. On the other hand people like Nishant (Umesh Kamath) believe in living life freely without even thinking left, right, forward, backward. Director Ajay Naik has beautifully showcased the reality about marriage. The best part about the film is that the director has showed this reality through all the characters in the film. Rahul (Siddharth Chandekar) and Anandi (Tejashri Pradhan) story shows the married life of current generation, their opinion, what they expect post marriage and do opposites really attract. Nishant and Aditi have a different story to tell. Here they prove that opposites do attract. Almost the characters in the film are very much relate able especially Rahul and Anandi.

Direction is the best part of the film. It is Ajay Naik’s vision and concept that make this film beautiful. The film seems to be loosely based on Band Baaja Baraat but only up to starting a marriage bureau. Some beautiful songs in wonderful voices make the movie watching experience even more enjoyable. All the actors have performed very well but the two who stand out in their performances are Siddharth Chandekar and Tejashri Pradhan. Outstanding performance by both of them.

On the whole LPK is a beautifully made film and needs to be watched for the execution of an ordinary concept and the director’s efforts. While watching the film you somewhere feel that you are a part of the story, and this is where Ajay Naik succeeds,all thanks to the actors and the director of the film. The climax feels abrupt but then the awesome feeling with which you exit the theater makes up for it. This one is absolutely recommended.

Rating: 3.25/5
