Aamir Khan’s production and Kiran Rao’s direction, Laapataa Ladies was released on the OTT platform, Netflix on April 16. The film was released in theatres on March 1, where it did not get any good response.

A heavy campaign after the release was carried out for the promotion of the film. The fans and the audience have applauded not just the film but also the newcomers. The plot of the film revolves around a case of two brides who accidentally get swapped during a train journey.

Now that the film has got a wide release on OTT, fans have been sharing their favourite scenes on X.

In an interview, director Kiran Rao also shared that it took her 13 years to make a film. After a long break, she is back with this Comedy-thriller. The Netflix campaign features the new cast, Pratibha Ratna, Sparsh Shrivastav, and Nitanshi Goel giving the OTT platform a fresh look.

The memes of Laapata Ladies are going viral all over. A fan wrote, “I feel like the #LaapataaLadies movie is a collective manifestation of us all feeling lost but in the most wonderful way possible.” A second fan shared the scene featuring actor Chhaya Kadam and wrote, “I have stayed alone for more than 5 years in different stages of my life, The idea of women staying alone, whether you are married or unmarried, is very foreign and uncomfortable for the ‘society’ to accept. Today while watching #LaapataaLadies, I felt so heard and seen!”

A fan praised the film and said, “A delightful and wonderful blend of comedy, love, heart set in a beautiful rustic environment amidst Arijit’s vocals and some brilliant acting from every character makes this movie an absolute winner. Ravi Kishan’s confrontation scene is whistle-worthy. Oscars ??” Another fan selected the scene where Sparsh’s character Deepak says ‘I love you’ to Nitanshi’s Phool and wrote, “#LaapataaLadies – It’s been years since I watched such a heartwarming soulful movie in Hindi. The more local a filmmaker delves into, the more global the film becomes. This is one such film, addressing Women’s empowerment, amazing storytelling, and awesome acting. And this scene, wow.”

Laapataa Ladies is set in a fictitious state called Nirmal Pradesh in 2001, where two brides get swapped in a train. While one is taken home by another’s groom, the other is left stranded at a railway station. A police officer, Kishan (Ravi Kishan), takes it upon himself to probe the case. The film is presented by Jio Studios and produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Kiran Rao’s Kindling Productions. Laapataa Ladies is produced by Kiran, Aamir Khan and Jyoti Deshpande. It is based on an award-winning story by Biplab Goswami.Vibhuti Pathak
