Beyond Clichés: Why 'Laapataa Ladies' Works as a 'Small-Town' Film

In this episode of 'Do I Like It', Prateek Lidhoo talks about the Kiran Rao directed 'Laapataa Ladies', starring Nitanshi Goel, Pratibha Ranta, and Sparsh Shrivastava. Produced by Aamir Khan Productions, the film talks about the chaos that ensues after brides get exchanged in a comedy of errors.

Prateek dives deep into the screenplay of the film, and tries to break down what decisions led to this film working over other 'small-town' films, which don't generate as much excitement as their starting premise. From nuanced character development to a meticulous approach of setups and payoffs, 'Laapataa Ladies' is a masterclass in cinematic writing.
