Leela Reviews

A woman's world
Feb 22, 2008 09:43 PMRead
Media has turned woman centric in the last few years. This can be seen in advertisements, newspaper reports, magazine articles (in fact the number of women magazines), TV serials and even movies. This maybe seen as a battle for the minority gaining a status in the man’s world.Leela is a smal...Read More

Tune in to the next episode

Leela is the story of a visiting Indian professor(Dimple Kapadia) at an American university. Kris(hna) is an American Desi wearing a baseball cap backwards who plays basketball. Sound stale and familiar? It is. Even though he's going to college and is in his late teens, Kris is still living with...Read More

Leela is a beautiful movie
Jun 18, 2003 06:39 AMRead
Leela, the latest addition to the NRI film collection, was written by Somnath Sen and beats to the death the theme of Second-generation Indians facing cultural identity dilemmas, on the lines of 'ABCD' and 'American Desi.'Krishna, who of course likes to be called Kris, is this short, boyish-...Read More

Leela – yeh tumne kya kiya? Magar kyun? (Leela - What have you done and why?). One word sums up this movie – “pseudo intellectual.”Imagine you are going to a fancy restaurant and see all those mouth watering display of gourmet dishes and the food that is served to you...Read More

Dimple Kapadia
Mar 06, 2003 08:16 AMRead
Leela is a movie about love, and the price paid, when the object of your desire breaks your heart. I watched this movie because it portrayed Indian life in an American setting, and am very interested in how it is portrayed when this very closed society opens itself up to a different culture. The...Read More

Subtlety at its best
Feb 28, 2003 06:23 PMRead
Leela made my husband sit up and watch. That speaks volumes considering:a) He cannot watch movies.b) He hates serious stuff.Leela peeks into relationships, the complexities without cliches, and doesn't typecast people into good and bad.Each of the character has performed tremendo...Read More

Nice one

The story idea of LEELA – that a young guy getting attracted to a woman older than him – bears a striking semblance to the Hollywood flick SUMMER OF '42 and has been witnessed on the Indian screen as well – in MERA NAAM JOKER (Simi Grewal-Rishi Kapoor), DOOSRA AADMI (Raakhee-Ri...Read More

NOTHING TOUCHED BY FIRE, REMAINS THE SAME!!!That’s how LEELA opens. It’s the new movie that’s running in the theatres, Dimple Kapadia plays the title role.It’s a very woman’s film. The theatres are packed with women. (I guess this’ll definitely make th...Read More

It depicts and strengthen an old fascination men have: that a woman's mind and intellect stimulates more than the sensual side of the woman. Leela portrays this fascination men have.Men may please be excused for the lust for the sensuous side of a woman. The movie demystify the notion of woman i...Read More

Review : Sex sells!! This movie has been able to sell capitalize on the age old formula... the best part of this movie is that there were no sex scenes... So all your guys who think its fire part II or Choti si Love Story get a porn cd maan. It’s an insight on the expatriate South Asian Co...Read More

MCP watchout!!
Nov 25, 2002 08:22 PMRead
Being a MCP myself, it took a lot to sit through this movie, my girl, to be precise.The movie took me back to my school days when I had all these NICE dreams (read fantasies) of my mathematics teacher and latter in college when I had a crush on my economics professor. In the cast Mhatre, has...Read More

In times a Movie like LEELA has caught the attention of the old & young as well. Though the movie is in English with Indian actors as the trend of such movies is catching on, but worth a mention thats its simply superb though as mentioned in some of the MS reviews difficult for Indian Audiences ...Read More

Leela-the muse
Nov 13, 2002 01:17 PMRead
Leela is a break from the usual hindi flick, a trend which started from ‘Hyderabad Blues’, a so called experimental film. Fortunately the tradition of making experimental,low budget movies is kept alive by directors like Meera Nair-Monsoon wedding,the director of Mitr-my friend and s...Read More
