CAST & CREW
Of all the cliched Bollywood films involving reincarnation and making people remember who they were in their last birth, Ek Paheli Leela just joins the bandwagon. It is a story about a model in London ( Sunny Leone) who has a fear of flying, but who finds herself in Rajasthan one day, after her friends make her drink and make her fly high(pun intended). The movie is a desperate plea for objectifying the leading actress. Wherever we go, the lead actress has been exploited, whether it is Meera from the present or Leela from 300 years ago. The intensity is so much so that the audience won’t care who the other actors are or what their work is. The concept of the story is about Karan( Jay Bhanushali), who gets persistent dreams about someone whipping him. Eventually, he finds out that he has a lot of pain in his past life. He travels into his past to discover that he is Shravan ( Rajneesh Duggal) from 300 years ago. Meanwhile, Cupid strikes between Meera and Ranveer Singh(Mohit Ahlawat) and they get married.
There comes a point where you start questioning an important concept midway through the film, of how you are wasting your time unto this excuse of a story. It has a senseless plot, a malnourished story, but has Sunny Leone in it, so basically that reason is enough for a lot of people to see the movie. Next, comes a very painful plot for which you might need a lot of water and stupidity to digest. Apart from good looks and revealing outfits, the story has nothing to offer except bling.
There is only one star in this entire movie that you want to see, and that is Sunny Leone. All the other actors' names you are going to forget mid-film, because that’s what they have been given worth.
1. Sunny Leone. Generous amounts of her.
2. Reincarnation theories.
3. Good music.
What’s not there?
1. A good storyline.
2. Good acting.
This movie is acceptable to watch if you are a Sunny Leone fan. She has played her part well enough. Otherwise, it’s a complete no-no. You do not want to waste 3 hours of your life on this.
