Lakiro Movie Review : Lakiro

Story: Richa (Deeksha Joshi) and Hrishi (Raunaq Kamdar), two highly ambitious millennials, meet in Pune while studying, fall in love and get married. But problems between the duo crop up immediately after marriage as they follow their respective career paths and it ends up in divorce. What does destiny have in store for this couple?

Review: In terms of storytelling, the film wanted to address many issues associated with urban couples and modern marriages. However, the challenge of putting together plenty of things makes it a bit sketchy and shallow. While director Dr Darshan Ashwin Trivedi has done a decent job, somewhere he lacked in making it a gripping film because of the various points they wanted to address in the story. Cinematography by Tapan Vyas is one of the strong points of the film. They have shot beautifully in some of the best locations in Pune and Bengaluru. There is a bold attempt to portray intimacy and that needs to be applauded, but the love-making scenes between the couple feel a bit forced. Music by Parth Bharat Thakkar is another strong pillar of this film. The title track, Lakiro, is a melody you will keep humming, while Tu Nathi Pan Tu Chhe is a brilliant number that stays with you. The dialogues are decent and when it comes to performances, Raunaq and Deeksha have done a great job to make the characters look and feel real. Netri looks great in her boho-chic avatar as a free-spirited girl. Shivani Joshi and Vishal Shah have interesting parallel roles and they have done a good job. Dharmesh Vyas is awesome as Hrishi’s boss but his potential hasn’t been utilized fully.

Overall, it’s a good attempt to address modern marital issues. But it seems somewhere at the edit table, to manage the film’s duration, certain things went a bit wrong. The film feels more suitable for OTT platforms.
