    Verdict - LPNY is easy on the eyes and the ears. What else do you want in a conversation film?

    Do you believe in love at first sight?

    Do you believe that two people can meet exactly 3 times in a span of 7 years and still be in love?

    Do you like conversation films in which the leads talk talk and talk?

    Do you like Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari or any one of them?

    Do you like movies that get over in less than 2 hours?

    Are you a travel buff who likes to see places in movies and focus on the name of the Caf/ street/shop if the movies fails to interest you?

    If the answers to all of the above or at least a majority of theme is YES then this movie is made for you.

    Whats it about? Boy (Ali Zafar) and girl (Aditi Rao Hydari) meet and spend a day in London. Boy and girl meet and spend a night in Paris. Boy and girl meet and spend a night in New York. Spread over 7 years its a 3 day story of the Boy and Girl falling in love.

    How is it? Theek hai

    Why? I have a huge crush on Aditi so for me just watching her on screen made the film work but her character didnt work. If not for Aditi playing Lalitha I would have come out tearing my hair. On the other hand Ali Zafars character Nikhil is more endearing and his complexes are more real. And with the emotional outburst scene in the end Ali Zafar just owned the film. That scene was the only emotional connect I had with the film. The film is well shot but doesnt use the places enough to impress a travel buff like me. Anu Menons direction flows smoothly with an easy going breezy vibe and just for going against the tide and casting the leads she deserves full marks . Thehree si and Voh Dekhnay mein are the only songs that work well on the screen but Vo Dekhnay is butchered on the edit table. The editing of all the songs except Thehree Si put me off the music of the film.

    Final few words: LPNY is easy on the eyes and the ears. What else do you want in a conversation film?

    Rating: **
