Sonam, Anil Kapoor's Film Is A Whiff Of Fresh Air With Daring Vision And Entertainment
Funny how a woman can fall in love with another woman and still need a man to ensure she gets her happy ending

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is an entertaining and progressive look at love and acceptance.
Rachit Gupta, Times of India
A pretty girl is in trouble when she bumps into a young man who rescues her. Or does he? As in all love stories, he chases her down to a small town in Punjab. Will her secret destroy her family, or will she be accepted for who she is? Charming but superficial film about gender identity.

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga Is A Golden Opportunity Turned Silver!
Box Office Capsule
A closet door has been opened, calmly yet decisively and resonantly: it remains to be seen what – and who – comes out of it.

“Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga,” directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar, isn’t really a romantic comedy in the Bollywood sense — courting, squabbling, wedding. (Though there is a very on-brand song montage with Sweety and Kuhu hugging among ruins.) Instead, like Sahil’s musical, “Ek Ladki” has to give lessons, tackling topics like shame, community acceptance and anxieties about gayness as illness.

A False ‘Brace For Impact’
Umesh Punwani, Koi Moi
As Sweety says in regards to her play, it’s important for marginalized people to see empathetic representations of themselves in pop culture. To quote Sweety, “You want to fit me into your idea of normal. But this is my normal.”
