The best hindi movie I have seen in years
4 September 2001 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

I absolutley loved this movie. No doubt Lajja will become a masterpiece. Manisha Koirala, Mahima Chaudhary, Rekha, and Madhuri Dixit give such memorable performances in this film. The dance numbers with Urmila Matondker and Sonali is wonderful.

Lajja is a story of four women and thier struggle in men's society. It is a story of survival.
