For a film that boasts of a good plot (a street fighter coming together with a blind young woman), Lafangey Parindey would surely have quite a few promotional angles to procure. However, one wonders whether Aditya Chopra and Co. have decided to go low for this film mainly due to director Pradeep Sarkar coming with Laaga Chunari Mein Daag behind him which was a critical and commercial failure. If that"s the case, it would be strange since Neil has done well in both of his last outings – Jail and New York, while Deepika comes with a hit (Housefull) behind her.
Whatever be the case, the fact remains that Lafangey Parindey hasn"t been hyped to the fullest and that would reflect in it"s opening which is expected to be in the 50% range. The sole reason for Lafangey Parindey to rejoice is the fact that there is no competition whatsoever on its arrival. And Once Again, the Amol Palekar film, was postponed at the last minute last week and would now be arriving alongside Lafangey Parindey. There is also a C grade film called Kis Hudh Tak which is seeing a selective release on the same day. No wonder, none of these two films would be the cause of worry here for Lafangey Parindey.
