For eons, Mumbai has spurred creativity in filmmakers. Some good, some bad. Some grossly confused. Like this one. Director Rakesh Mehta tells a story which is more cramped with characters than Mumbai's local trains. The dialogues are unmoving and script more disoriented than the city's unbearable traffic. While trying to create a montage of a struggling day in the life of Mumbai, the real story is stuck in some galli of Crawford Market. Watch it at your own risk, but remember, we warned you. Given a choice, we'd like the real city and a drive on Mumbai's roads - it probably has fewer potholes than this story.
Critic Score: 1/5
Screenplay writer doesn't waste time to establish the plot thus, 'Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi' begins on a promising note. But, as the story flows, a certain uncomfortable numbness seeps in due to the stagnant plot, which finally ends with a very loosely knitted climax. Barring few performances and dialogues, nothing in the film manages to strike the chord. Poor script, boring screenplay and music leaves 'Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi' in a very risky situation. On the whole, Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi leaves one uncomfortably numb; so, enter the halls at your own risk.
Critic Score: 1.5/5
