What is it all about?

A soft core fantasy that celebrates Sunny Leone’s lusciously bosomy beauty in a full blown Bollywoodised avatar T-Series ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ in association with Paper Doll productions is graced by the alluring Sunny Leone in those sumptuous settings and costumes, chartbusting music and simple decent execution.

This vivid fairy tale with soft tones of a period erotica is closer to the gallery than to the something different, new, niche family but the strong promotional push by the makers, Sunny Leone’s popularity and watchable content played to the gallery should bring in the expected numbers.

The Story

Meera (Sunny Leone) is a top European model on an assignment in London. Meera’s photographer Radhika (Shivani Tanksale) and fashion designer played by VJ Andy bring Meera to an assignment in the deserts and palaces of Rajasthan in India where Prince Ranveer (Mohit Ahlawat) welcomes them.

Meera finds her Mr. Right in Prince Ranveer but his cousin brother Prince Bikram (Jas Arora) is after Ranveer’s empire and a mysterious statue of Leela.. who is Leela and what is her story.. all this gets unveiled in due course.

Debutant Bobby Khan with his co writer Jo Jo Khan keeps things simple and doesn,t goes for any experiment to mark his stamp as a writer. Likely to be labeled as a cliché lacking any innovations writer director but the target audience may not mind as the proceedings are decently engaging to the core. Isn,t a fast paced quickie but steady for its audience with a surprise twist.

What to look out for

A good one time watch debutant Bobby Khan concentrates entirely on his prime asset Sunny Leone in this tribute to B-town incarnation that winks at fascination of the 70’s, 80’s movies of this genre like ‘Karz’, ‘Mehbooba’ ‘Kudrat’ etc inspiration.

Technically may not be that authentic but certainly within the frames of the popular, single screen audience aesthetics to be colorful, vivid and over the top where cinematographer Bashalal Syed rightfully separates the two eras and the audience is able to distinguish.

Bobby Khan narration is easy to the eyes and flowing with the chartbusters, ‘Mere sayiya super star’, ‘Desi’ and ‘Tere Bin’ coming without disturbing the momentum and the occasional spice of erotica in those love making scenes coming in to satisfy all the pulse of its audience making it an entertaining affair.

Sunny Leone is in complete command and in almost every frame radiating a preconscious joy in the powers of her image as a sex goddess showing improvement in her acting skills.

Sunny male counter parts do their job well where Rajneesh Duggal as Shravan is quite competent. Mohit Ahlawat as Prince Ranveer is impressive. Jay Bhanushali as Karan is fine.

Rahul Dev as Bhairav makes his presence felt. Shivani Tanksale and VJ Andy are fair.

What not

It’s over the top, lacks innovation, routine with buffoonery in its special effects. Jas Arora as Prince Bikram hams. TV comedian Ahsaan Qureshi irritates. The desired emotional connect to the love story is less. Offers nothing to those who strive for innovation, revolution and are in constant look out for something different. Sunny Leone acting skills will be questioned though she shows signs of improvement.

Conclusion: ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ is a soft core musical fantasy that celebrates Sunny Leone’s lusciously bosomy beauty in a full blown Bollywoodised avatar. It's seductive, haunting and humming with oomph and harmless over the top make believe pomp. Go for it if you are for it.
