Our in-house critic Sreeju Sudhakaran is watching Laila Majnu right now and here's what he has to say about the first half-
"Laila Majnu is set in the beautiful locales of Kashmir, and has some lovely visuals. Not to mention an amazing musical score. These two factors enhance the age-old love story of Laila and Majnu. Though, in the first half, he is just Kaes Bhat, madly in love with the vivacious Laila. However, as the folklore goes, their families can't see eye-to-eye with each other, and doesn't approve of their match. Laila's father gets her married to a wily family friend while Kaes, spurned by Laila who fears her father's suicide threat, promises her that she will seek him.
