Lafangey Parindey (2010) *HQ*

null
Only a Mumbaikar who takes that crowded local train everyday to work, dances on Nashik Dhol, Lezim taasha during Ganapati festival, plays the dandiya in Navratri and does the popular Govinda dance during Dahi Handi knows where the beauty of his city lies.It does not lie in malls, multiplexes and any form of modernisation that Mumbai is often associated with.

Cast: Neil Nitin Mukesh, Deepika Padukone

It lies in its Mumbaiyya culture, created by its real inhabitants who predominantly reside in sprawling chawls and match box sized flats rather than palatial sea facing bungalows.

Pradeep Sarkar pans his camera on these gritty streets and gullies of Mumbai and tells a simple tale of two free-spirited youngsters who believe nothing is impossible. Popularly known as One Shot Nandu, Nandan Kamtekar (Neil Nitin Mukesh) is a small time boxer who beats his opponent in one punch. Though Nandu’s popularity is limited to his locality, it doesn’t limit his dreams. Nandu dreams of stepping into his mentor Anna’s (Kay Kay Menon) shoes. He also dreams of becoming an important member of his godfather Usman’s underworld gang.

Another Tilakwadi resident, a blind Pinky Palkar (Deepika Padukone) too is a dreamer. Pinky is a skater who loves to dance. She thus dances on skates and dreams of becoming a world renowned dancer some day. Pinky curses herself for being born in a lower middle class family but her tapori neighbourhood that fondly addresses her as ‘dance bar’ and ‘Kareena Kapoor of Tilakwadi’ does not bog her down.

As fate would have it, a tragic incident brings the two together while their dreams come crashing down. Will the two be able to overcome all odds, fight their destiny and shun the mediocrity they thoroughly despise… forms the story of Lafangey Parindey. The beauty of the film lies in its simplicity. Sarkar does not get preachy or patronizing in his storytelling in spite of his story being predictable. The portrayal of Mumbai life including the taporigiri showed is not over-the-top. The clothes and even the names of the characters fit the setting. Second half is a bit of a drag but even then the film never loses its grip. High on emotions, the film is more of a drama but comedy and romance too have their prominence in the script.
