Product Description

Badki and Chutki live a fun-filled life in Banaras, playing pranks, sneaking off to see a forbidden mujra, and soaking up all the excitement that goes on the ghats of the Ganga. Badki is aware that the family is in dire straits, but she and her mother protect Chutki at all costs.

When things get worse, Badki decides to go to Mumbai and seek a living for the family. Alone and unsupported in the midst of the urban jungle of Mumbai, Badki battles with dark forces, keeping her focus on her purpose to support her family and continue Chutki's education. She deliberately morphs into someone else, leading a secret life full of murky compromises.

When Chutki comes to Mumbai to work, things take a dramatic turn. Badki's life turns into a minefield, as she has to hide her secrets from Chutki. Chutki finds success at work, and love that delights her heart. Badki finds the magic of love, but lets it slip away before it can blossom, as she believes it's not in her destiny. She battles menace and blackmail alone, not letting these dark shadows fall on Chutki or her family.

But her dual life is revealed, and the two sisters are face to face, in a confrontation neither had expected. And when love beckons Badki again, the whole family is thrown in a tumultuous storm. Everything threatens to explode in their faces, destroying all of them.

Will Badki get the happy ending she deserves? Or will the shadows of her past douse the lamps of hope?

Review

"Pradeep Sarkar is no doubt a proficient story teller. He has managed to bring to light the struggle of a woman to make a living in the cruel and demanding society with maturity and precision. The first half of the movie is told crisp but it gets a little dramatic in the second half. The transformation in Badki s character evolves with time and reason. Not only that, Badki s character is expressed in the most convincing and touching way that we tend to care deeply for her. Especially when her mom asks her not to visit home because the town would end up speaking ill of them, made me feel deeply for her. Cinematography is first-rate. The locale of Banaras is shot beautifully. Music is excellent blending well with the storyline and comes from the same team of Parineeta. Rani Mukherjee is matchless. She delivers yet another award winning performance. Her best performance since Black. The role gives her immense scope to exhibit a gamut of emotions and she carries it out outstandingly. Konkona Sen Sharma looks dazzling in the movie. Her performance in the movie was top-notch and is sure to fetch her good reviews and lots of praises. Jaya Bachchan is flawless. Anupam Kher is first-rate. Kunal Kapoor as Vivaan is good. He manages to perform his act well and appears natural. Abhishek Bachchan as Rohan is just OK. " --indicine.com

This was a great movie that takes you on a journey where you feel emotions of the main character on how she needs to provided for her family.

Anyway, there are many wonderful scenes and the story is more or less believable.

The way this film opens, with a carefree musical number, you'd think that Vibhavari (or Vibha) Sahay and her younger sister Shubhavari are living an idyllic existence in the pleasant city of Banaras. But things couldn't be further from the truth. Hard times have crept in for the Sahays, as they become besieged by rats for relatives and by crippling economic woes. Vibha and Shubha's mother slaves away as a seamstress while their ineffective father obsesses over lottery tickets yet is prickly about his destitute state. Vibha is fiercely protective of her sister and attempts to keep her in the dark regarding their financial straits. But, as debts and bills mount and the threat of eviction hangs over the Sahays, Vibha's father suffers a stroke. Vibha decides to go to metropolitan Mumbai to try to earn money for the family.

But Vibha is raw and unskilled, her curtailed education rendering her ill prepared for the work force. In Mumbai she's marked as provincial and has no luck at landing a steady job. Finally, in desperation, she becomes a high priced prostitute. Soon enough, Vibha (or "Natasha," her working name) is raking in the good money and sending it home. Then two things happen just before the film's intermission which ratchets up the plot. On a business flight to Zurich, Vibha meets Rohan, a charming corporate attorney - and sparks are set off. Then, returning to Mumbai, Vibha is surprised by her sister, who has come to stay...

Rani Mukherji, a lovely and talented actress, powers LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG (My Veil Is Stained), a 2007 Bollywood drama. Her very good performance overcomes the predictable, rather lackluster story; she makes the thing watchable.

Moving story of a Banaras family portrayed well. Financial problems of the family force the eldest daughter to quit school and look for a job in the big city of Mumbai. Unable to find a job, she becomes an escort/prostitute for the wealthy and takes care of all the family needs of paying debts and educating her sister. The sister finds a job and has a fiancé. After a turn of events, the movie ends happily with a double wedding of the sisters.

The touching scenes are the father's regrets when he finds out that the daughter was an escort. He expresses his apology for his irresponsibility and for leaving the wife alone to handle all crises. The wife was the only one who knew of the elder daughter's `job'.

The wife is not flawless. She forbids the elder daughter from attending the wedding of her sister, apprehensive of scandals and probable cancellation of the wedding as a result. Their phone conversation scene captures the injustice the daughter faces from her own mother.

The opening dance is beautiful with a great song and photography.

There is a new trend in Hindi movies. As part of many senseless aping of the Western culture Indians have been practicing, the word they have been using in the recent years in movies is `s--t'. It is as though they could not learn anything else from the West. Street words are nothing but repulsive, especially in a serious story like Laaga Chunari, and takes away the beauty of the film.

Laaga Chunari Mein Daag begins with dancing in the lanes and commons much like Bunty aur Babli with a must hear bright and beautiful song - Hum Tu Aise Hain. Two sisters, played by Rani and Konkona, are blessed with an unbreakable bond growing up with breakable parrents. Why is it that children in Indian films are often devoted and loving to bad parents (Jaya Bhaduri and Anupam Kher are both excellent at being bad parents) and children in American films often hate good parents?

You may recognize the voice of Shreya Ghosha during the whispering Laaga Chunari Mein Daag song that is really mystical, but you can't dance to it. I'm becoming a big fan of Shreya. Curiously, two of the songs run out of words and end with dun dun dun ...or la la la... but it's okay. After a confrontational beginning between the boys and girls, the big wedding dance takes off with Kunal and Abhishek adding spice through their antics.

Anyway, there are many wonderful scenes and the story is more or less believable. In the context of why I buy Indian films, this movie is a easy 4 but my wife loved it no doubt due to Kunal Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan. So, I have to give it a 5.

The spectacle, the beautiful scenery, the colors, the music.. I love everything Bollywood!
The lead actress was wonderful. The story was heart warming. The only negative part was I thought
the two kinsmen (the villains) got off way too easy.
I loved it, and I have already watched it about 30 times.

What women all over the world have had to deal with in "man's world of business"! I love how family meant so much to her to be willing to go to the lengths she did; and how she was able to reclaim her innocence!
