Audience Reviews for Lajja

Here's an interesting insight into the lives and plight of four strong, hard-working women. It remarkably details their stories and the accounts of experience that they each have endured. The common encounters are reflected in a neglected, jilted wife whose desires for love in a good marriage is less-existent; the obedient daughter-bride that is willing to marry to appease her family, and the honor of her father; a young, beautiful woman whose lover believes the lies of others and abruptly leaves her with child; and lastly, the mother whose heart is so wide open that her compassion for her fellow gender is expressed within her every action. Great cast- Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Ajay Devgan, Rekha, Mahima Chaudhry, and Sonali Bendre. Worth seeing!
