  • In its last 30 minutes, unveils the film's secret weapon: a visceral portrait of insanity. It's only here that the film actually lives up to its ambitious promise of retelling the legend of Layla and Majnun.

  • The uneven acting is in keeping with the rest of the film, which oscillates wildly between occasional bouts of lucidity and absurdity.

  • Summing up, Laila Majnu isn't your typical Bollywood romance. It's not a feel-good story with a happily-ever-after ending but is something that will shake you up emotionally for all the right reasons...

    Sep 7, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Here are highly flawed and even doomed characters, yet they partake of something special, enviable and real. Who among us dares judge a true romantic? Love is love.

    Sep 7, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Perhaps the biggest clue to this movie's bipolarity lies in its choice of location.

    Sep 7, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • What is truly troubling is the fact that the Alis have resorted to the woman-as-a-tease and the male-suitor-as-a-stalker clichés that were once a fixture in Bollywood but that many contemporary filmmakers now abjure.
