Since its digital release, Laapataa Ladies, featuring Sparsh Shrivastava, Pratibha Ranta, Nitanshi Goel, and Ravi Kishan, has received widespread acclaim, particularly in the UK. Critics and audiences alike have praised its nuanced portrayal of relationships and unconventional narrative approach. The film’s compelling storyline and well-developed characters have resonated deeply with viewers, earning it high praise and admiration.
