Storyline

A dash of style with loads of attitude and a hunger to reach the stars, LAFANGEY PARINDEY is about a group of youngsters living in the backstreets of Mumbai. It is an unusual love story of Nandu (Neil Nitin Mukesh) and Pinky(Deepika Padukone) whose path to love is paved by friendship, grit and hope. He is wild. He is born to fight. He is One-Shot Nandu. For the raw, champion street fighter, one-shot is literally what it takes. Absolutely wild, fierce, and hungry to win, this fighter takes boxing to a new level by knocking down his opponents - BLINDFOLDED. Needless to say, One-Shot lives life on his own terms and is a local hero amongst his friends. But all that soon changes, when he meets Pinky Palkar. She is blind. She is born to fly. She is Pinky Palkar. A unique girl, a powerhouse of talent. On one hand she works at a regular, boring 9-to-5 job at a mall but on the other hand, she is a kickass dancer on skates. Strong headed, talented and fiercely ambitious - these traits make up ... Written by Official source

Highly entertaining film about life and love with gangsterism in the backdrop. Full of surprises.

This film truly surprised me. I was expecting one of the same old formula gangster cum romance film; but, surprise, it takes pot shots at life! It is definitely one of the most entertaining films of the year. Gopi Puthran the story/screenplay/dialogs writer is truly a great find and we will certainly hear more about him.

In the acting department, the entire cast surprises you by giving very competent performances. I really loved the Bhai, KK Menon makes a good guest appearance. Both Deepika and Neil surprised me with their performance! All the other goofy named characters were also good.

The story is extremely well written and the film is well directed. The dialogs are memorable and strong! Mumbaiya and tapori (rowdy) language rules! This film reminds you of the good old day films where story and entertainment was paramount. Basically, that formula has been worked out for today's audience.

The songs and music are quite good. The photography too is quite good.

What is outstanding is the skating choreography (Sandro Guerro)! Deepika and Neil really shine in the skating scenes!

The end is a little bit abrupt and predictable!

Will I watch it again? Yes, of course. There is a bit of violence and gangsterism is the backdrop, but this film is about life and love. Definitely worth a watch, if not more. Go for it! Finally, a truly entertaining film.
