The first look and teaser of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga has been released. The movie stars Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Rajkummar Rao. It is directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar and is going to be released on October 12 2018. Sonam Kapoor shared her first look from the movie with the caption, Sweety Chaudhary: Quiet one | Punjabi | Syaapa. The teaser, however, takes us back to 1942, while we see footage of Anil Kapoor as the classic song, on which the title of the movie is based, plays in the background. The story then flashes forward to, 2018, and we see Sonam Kapoor, say that “Pyaar mein syaapa nahi kiya, toh kya pyaar kiya?”
And then we see glimpses of different characters in the movie, a happy punjabi family, and older Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawala, and the young Rajkummar Rao, who seems to be in love with Sonam. The trailer shows us the interactions between the characters, and Sonam having emotional moments with her father. The look of the movie is also beautiful, with the wide, overhead shots of fields in Punjab and the set designs.
This is going to be a comeback for Juhi Chawala on the silver screen, and even though she doesn’t have any dialogue in the trailer, she still shows that none of her powerful charisma and talent has gone away with time. Sonam also looks good in a role that is different from her ultra glamorous turn in the hit, Veere Di Wedding. Here she is playing a simple girl, and looks the part, without any kind of vanity involved. Rajkummar is only seen in a few glimpses, seems to be giving a restrained performance, but he is always as compelling, and it looks like his chemistry with Sonam is going to shine throughout the movie.
