Writing about LCMD has been on my to-do list for quite a while and destiny chooses this day to make it happen. Laaga Chunari Mein Daag at prima-facie narrates a tale of a girl who hails from from a devout & conservative middle-class family enriched with strong values. Sadly the family is faced with financial difficulties and the girl embarks on a journey to big city for a bailout. Circumstances force the girl from the Holy city to compromise her values to make a living in the Sin City. From there its about leading a dual life of in the garb of "Dr. Jekyll/ Mr. Hyde" and a subsequent "forced" love track.
There appears to be more-than-warranted sub-plots into the story-line which spoils the narrative. The director seems to be at loss as to what he wanted to put across. Journey from Benaras to Mumbai plot is straight lift from Raj Kapoor's Ram Teri Ganga Maili. Parineeta being a period drama warranted a rich looked backed with a slow narrative for the audience to connect. However the style (slow-narrative) seems ill-suited for Laaga Chunari Mein Daag.
This movie could have been yet another feather in Rani's cap as her character is author backed and a feminist storyline. Konkana is as usual spot on. Jaya B & Anupam do their part with ease. Jr. B seems to have an extended special appearance.
