Quite often, Lafangey Parindey is a charming film. It is especially so if stories of the underdog are your thing. Let down by a tendency to over-simplify, and a lack of focus, this is a movie that might have worked if it had a clearer sense of purpose.
As central as it is to the flick, Lafangey's key plot twist is one of the places where it blows it. When the promos show a blind heroine, and the film opens with a heroine who is not blind, the impending disaster that you're expecting to handicap her makes the first act of the film a less-than-thrilling experience.
