Ever since the trailer of 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' was released, one thing was clear that it's not going to be just another regular Bollywood love story starring Rajkummar Rao and Sonam Kapoor. Yet, people had high hopes and ever higher doubts from this movie and wondered if it will be able to do justice to the sensitive topic it was trying to highlight.

The movie finally hit the theatres today and fans are not disappointed at all. Sonam Kapoor, who plays a lesbian in the movie, has done a brilliant job and this is not a fangirl speaking. Her acting is truly impressive. So is Rajkummar Rao's, who pulls off his character with utmost brilliance.
