Unlike the January, which had four to five releases every Friday, February seems to have a mild start with just two movies releasing on the first Friday of the month. ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga‘ a rom-com drama starring Sonam Kapoor with father Anil Kapoor and Rajkumar Rao, and another comedy-drama ‘The Fakir Of Venice‘ by Farhan Akhtar and Annu Kapoor, are releasing on February 1, 2019.
‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’
It is “the most Unexpected Romance of the year!” starring Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, and Juhi Chawla is here and the romantic drama is really captivating. The film is directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar and produced by Vinod Chopra Films in association with Fox Star Studios.
It is a simple love story about a girl named Sweety who has to contend with her over-enthusiastic family that wants to get her married, a young writer who is completely smitten by her, a secret that she harbors close to her heart and ultimately the truth that her true love might not find acceptance in her family and society. Resolving these issues proves hilarious, touching & life changing.
It is the first time when the father-daughter duo will share the screen space. The movie looks promising as it brings back the old world charm of romance but also stays relevant to contemporary times.
