Laghushanka movie review is here. The short movie stars Shweta Tripathi in the lead. The short film marks the directorial debut of Nikhil Mehrotra, who has previously written for critically-acclaimed movies such as Dangal and Chhichhore. Laghushanka is slated to debut on SonyLIV on Oct 16.
Set against the backdrop of Patna, Laghushanka tells the story of Shruti (Shweta Tripathi), a young girl suffering from a peculiar condition. Shruti suffers from Lagushanka (urination problem). Shruti is about to get married. Preparations are in full swing in her house when this unusual problem re-triggers just two days before her wedding.
Laghushanka movie review
Nikhil Mehrotra begins with a bang and ends it on a highly predictable note. For me the movie began when it ended. A terrific story/plot for a full fledged length quirky feature, made into a short movie.
Nevertheless, this short underlines Nikhil Mehrotra’s caliber as a storyteller. The influence of Tiwari’s – Ashwini/Nitish is quite evident but still the writer turned director seriously pushes his application in the league of the new age Sharma’s (Amit Ravindrenath Sharma – Badhai Ho) and Tiwari’s ( Ashwini, Nitish – Dangal, Panga, etc) of Bollywood.
This crazy quirky and snappy roller coaster is boosted by Shweta Tripathi’s winning act.
Marvelously supported by Yogendra Vikram Singh, Kanupriya Pandit, Narrotam Baid and others.
The plot/idea of Laghushanka is such a dynamite that can blow its danka (read make great noise) if done by able hands as a full length feature. Here this short quirky ends on a smilie note and it’s a heart warmer without any shanka (doubt) laghu (small) ya ucch (big).
