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.Read more ›
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.
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.
