Ek Paheli Leela: Movie Review

Cast: Sunny Leone, Jay Bhanushali, Rajneesh Duggal , Mohit Ahlawat , Rahul Dev 

Directed By: Bobby Khan

Well the Bobby Khan's idea of a re-incarnation, explicit drama didn't really work. The skin show, the various raunchy making out scenes and Sunny Leone's skin show with the bulging cleavage are the only are highlights of the film. Other than that, the film's script, direction, music everything does not work in the film's favour.

Director Bobby Khan had apparently focused more on Sunny's cleavage than on filming the film. The storyline is very weak and comes out as an adult drama film. Why I say that? As making out and skin show are the only centering points in the film, the fun element in the film, i.e VJ Andy and Ehsaan Qureshi also fail miserably, and their double meaning jokes are a complete 'no-no'.

Moving on, Meera (Sunny Leone) is a UK based Super Model. She is a seductress and is at the peak of her career. The girl is a attractive seductress on the outside, but a desi girl on the inside. She seems to be a very strong individual but deep down inside she is suffering from depression.

Meera confesses about her problem to her photographer friend Radhika (Shivani Tanksale) that she has a Phobia from flights as she lost both her parents in an air crash. While simultaneously on the other hand Andy who works with Radhika breaks a very big deal and gets them a contract of a photo shoot in Rajasthan with Meera. Radhika and Andy someway manage to intoxicate Meera and get he to Jodhpur, Rajasthan for the shoot.

Meera instantly adapts the culture of Rajastan and falls in love with the local Prince Ranveer (Mohit Ahlawat ). [Flashback] Apparently 300 years ago Meera then called Leela lived in the same village. She was in love with Shravan (Rajneesh Duggal) who worked as an assistant to Bhairav (Rahul Dev) who was a Sculptor. Bhairav had fallen in love with Leela since the time he had his eyes on her and shows his desire to built her sculpture. And then something terrible happens!

The most shocking part of the story is that Leela who is 300 years old, displaying her cleavage more than the present day supermodel. It is hard to relate any rural girl indulging in so much of skin show and such short choli and a fusion of Dhoti-Lehenga (God knows what it is exactly called). Ostensibly, the maker had taken Sunny to her full advantage and brought out the attractive and sensuous Sunny Leone.

However, the film has failed miserable in bringing out a strong script. The story is extremely weak and it is highly predictable. VJ Andy, Ehsaan Queshi's one lines and double meaning jokes are anything else but funny. 

On the other side of the story Karan (Jay Bhanushali) is a music composer, who also composes songs for Radhika's stage shows (he is also Radhika's cousin). Karan is also jolting with his past. Since the time he has shifted to Mumbai, he had been getting disturbing dreams and to find the answer to his dreams he decides to go to Jodhpur.

Now joining the two ends, there is a connection between Meera and Karan! There is something hidden in their past which has been disturbing them. Would they be able to make peace with their past or something awful is in store for them? 

Talking about the dialogues Bunty Rathod has not done justice to his work. He has also not been able to bring in the charm or the funny angle across clearly. The first half of the movie seem to have been stretched so much that you would want to kill for an interval.

As far as the acting is concerned, Jay Bhanushali- it seems like his regular job, he knows his work and has done an okay job. Rajneesh Duggal- didn't have much of screen time, he however tried his best. Mohit Ahlawat- seemed less of an actor and more of a model posing for the camera. Rahul Dev- was the only artist who knew his job and performed really well.

Now the Diva, Sunny Leone knows what she does best and she did! Her acting skill, well we know it doesn't matter if she can act or not, she just need to present her lascivious self and her job is done, and this is what she exactly did in the film!

The film is somehow suppose to be a semi-musical film but, the filmmakers appeared to have lost track and their was no sync between the songs and the story. The songs poured in every now and then without any requirement. 

The main highlight of the film was the raunchy scenes. The emotional balance and lack of connection make these scenes uncalled for. The camera work also lacks in bringing the intensity of the shot making it look vulgar.

Well, in the end the film would be a delight for the men, for obvious reasons, however, according to me the film is not even onetime watch, if you wish to see sensuous and voluptuous Sunny on big screen you may go ahead, else the film is a downright waste of time.
