Nothing worth except Manu Rishi.
1 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

When few relatively smaller films taste success at the box office due to their exceptional content then this makes way for an immediate chain reaction in an expected way. At one end it gives the much required encouragement to the film-makers who are just waiting for the Big Day with their novel ideas and concepts. But on the other end it also results in many mediocre directionless projects which are just there to encash the changing trends and nothing else.

Regrettably LIFE KI TOH LAG GAYI belongs to the later kind of movies, with an all repeated stuff and a lazy script revolving around the Mumbai underworld, two broken relationships and the conmen operating in the film industry cheating the ambitious youngsters. The film walks on the same used before format of few different characters and their stories amalgamating with each other moving towards a common end point. Though the intentions seem to be honest behind its realistic writing but the execution is not able to make any kind of desirable impact on the viewers. In fact just after few minutes into the film, one can easily guess what they are going to show in the next reels and how its all going to end at one place with a lot of blood-shed.

Director Rakesh Mehta chooses a wrong subject for his first film which lacks novelty. With Indian viewers now open to all kind of new ideas and concepts, he should have taken a different script for his first gamble. A weak script cannot result in anything good even if you rope in some great actors such as Kay Kay Menon, Ranvir Shorey, Manu Rishi, Pradhuman Singh, & Neeraj Vora. In tiny roles the film also has Jackie Shroff, Shakti Kapoor, Tom Alter, Sharat Saxena, Asrani, Rukhsaar and Razzaq Khan. Neha Bhasin (singer) makes her acting debut and looks good on the screen. However she should have chosen a different film as her first venture since she has got the appeal as well as confidence.

In the music section LKTLG, thankfully uses its mediocre songs only in the background in their shorter cuts. But with Manu Rishi playing a Haryanvi Jaat, the director should have used the track "Main Haryana Ka Sher" by Daler Mehndi more prominently both in the film and its promos. Honestly, LKTLG has only one merit in it and its Manu Rishi who plays the helpless cop pressurized by his seniors. And if only the film was written just around his character alone, it could have been a different story altogether since he is quite impressive in his amusing portrayal.

In its present version LIFE KI TO LAG GAYI is an attempt which tries hard to be different relying on an uninteresting script. It is also a perfect example of those smaller films which are penalized by the Censor Boards for their abuses with a beep because they are not backed or supported by any Big Star. So you can watch it once for just Manu Rishi alone (whom you must have loved in "Oye Lucky Lucky Oye", "Phas Gaya Re Obama" & "Ekk Deewana Tha") and not for anything else.
