Lafangey Parindey - Skates with Identifiable emotions & lifting perfor

What is it all about?
After not a quite memorable experience with ‘Badmaash Company’, Bollywood premiere production company YRF comes down on the streets of ‘Amchi Mumabi’  to find the ‘pyaar’ of the audience and succeeds to a considerable extant.
The Story…Of course
‘Lafangey Parindey’ is about a group of youngsters living in the backstreets of Mumbai. It is an unusual love story of Nandu (Neil Nitin Mukesh) and Pinky (Deepika Padukone) whose path to love is paved by friendship, grit and hope.
For Nandu the raw, champion street fighter, one-shot is literally what it takes. Absolutely wild, fierce, and hungry to win, this fighter takes boxing to a new level by knocking down his opponents – “Blindfolded”. He meets Pinky Palkar and his world changes.
Pinky who losses her eyesight in an accident is a fabulous dancer, she is born to fly. On one hand she works at a regular, boring 9-to-5 job at a mall but on the other hand, she is a kickass dancer on skates! Her life's ambition is only one - to rise above all the 'losers' living in her locality and carve a niche for herself.
‘Lafangey Parindey’ is the love story of this two different people.
What to look out for?
Pradeep Sarkar after the miscalculations of ‘Laga Chunri mein Daag’ makes sure that this time he doesn’t slips and skates with identifiable emotions, positive energy and a delightful Deepika and the growing up actor Neil to come with a love story not set in Manhattan or New York and minus the candy gloss feel that was once synonymous with this production house.
Set in Amchi Mumbai, the production designed by Madhu Sarkar Kuriakose is done with perfection and gives the required feel that comes with detailing like the tulsi planted in a  Dalda ghee dabba, the bindiees on mirror at homes etc etc.
Dialouges by Gopi Puthran are punchy and well written with typical Mumbaiya lingo.
Fine background score by Bishwadeep Chatterjee and Nihar Ranjan Samel.
Eye pleasing cinematography by N Natarajan Subramaniam. Sharp scissor work by Sanjib Datta. Music by R. Anandh sounds better while one is watching the film.
Production values are first rate.
Pradeep Sarkar narrates Gopi Puthran’s screenplay with smartness and keeps the pigeon’s away from its crows by concentrating on the lead characters of Nandu – well played by Neil Nitin Mukesh who grows as an actor and shows significant improvement. He shows his versatility in fight and emotional scenes and is a good dancer.
 Deepika – Well the movie belongs to her as she is the backbone of this flick, portraying the role of a dancer who dreams big of being the no.1 at the top reality talent hunt show does her act with varied shades as matters proceed.
It’s delightful to see her dance with skates on and the dances are well performed by Neil and Deepika thanks to the choreography by Bosco Martis and Caesar Gonsalves, the lifts are finely done.
The side actors also impress and once again Piyush Mishra as Osman makes his mark. K.K. Menon in a cameo impresses.
‘Lafangey Parindey’ skates with identifiable emotions, positive energy and delightfully lifting performance.
What not?
On the flip side, the story is predictable and the pace in the second half is lazy.
The length and slowing of place during the end makes the movie miss the knock out punch.
The movie losses point on telling us a predictable story, getting lazy in the end and not having much time for laughs.
Conclusion: ‘Lafangey Parindey’ comes with the desi punch and the vada pav munch that gives the flick its ‘lifting’ moments; go if u don’t have anything more important this weekend.
