A Tensed Humorous Story , Highly Entertaining ****
26 April 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

You can count on Mumbai the city where every man landing here, ends up saying, "Lag Gayi". Mumbai has it's own character and makes human lives fall into it's own daily story. Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi is one such journey of four people tasting a slice of the Mumbai story in a day's time.

Salmaan (Kay Kay Menon) is a revenge seeking builder searching for his parents murderers. He divulges into past and present making his search interesting and indulging. His discovering of gun is a scene to watch out for. Amol Ganguly (Ranvir Shorey) easily slips into a Bengali babu caught in a honey trap, courtesy Deboshree making his life miserable. Enters Ajoy Ghosh (Pradhuman Singh) and adds a new dimension to all heart broken romantic idiots and makes Amol's life terrible. Amol and Ajoy turn your white blood cells into black with their effort-full suicidal tactics. Dolly Saluja (Neha Bhasin) is a financially broken runaway girl, lured by stardom. Her escapades make her look into the real life in Mumbai making for interesting viewing.

Kay Kay Menon is in form and displays controlled aggression. You want more of him, but the screen time doesn't permit so. Ranvir Shorey does well for his Amol, the sequel will make him a dangerous character to vouch for. Pradhuman Singh's Ajoi is a maniac musical dilemma, straight out of Guns and Roses. He is a revelation and relaxation for the young generation with preaching hell ways. Manu Rishi is the surprise package of the lot. With a heavy Delhi lingo and care free attitude, he sleep walks into his character Chautala with tension tension and more tension. Mass is always class with Chautala. Whereas, Neha Bhasin does justice to her Punjabi character with ease.

Rakesh Mehta, the writer director clearly has heavy influences and inclinations towards underworld subjects. Managing three more layered stories with the same background is quiet a feat. He has tried to maintain a fine balance and has surely come close to the right mix. His dialogues supports the director in him perfectly. Mumbai through his lens is nostalgic.

Catch the film for Salmaan's subtleness, Chautala's aggression, Ajoy- Amol's unbalanced chemistry and Dolly's edgy life. Discover Mumbai again before you say 'Lag Gayi'.
