Movie Review: Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga (2019)

Some love stories are not simple, Sweety’s (played by Sonam Kapoor) is one such story. She 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 harbours 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 and life changing. Sweety is lesbian and has to convince her family and her father, Balbir (Anil Kapoor), who has blind faith in his daughter. Rajkumar Rao, who is a well wisher more than anything else, decides to be the good friend and help her convince her family. There are a lot of arguments that happen between Sweety and her family.
