Ever since she is introduced to indian cinema, People has been going gaga over her, especially young folks. You know whom I’m saying about. She is none other than curvaceous Sunny leone.

Now, she is ready with her third film to hit the screens across the globe.

Bobby khan penned this story reminds me of telugu film Magadheera, But both are unique in their own way. The narrative style is quite tricky to understand to a irregular movie goers, but the man at the helm tried his best to narrate the story in an entertaining way by blending up with a few erotic frames. Anyways, Bobby has succeeded in elevating the chemistry between lead actors, but the director failed to narrate few key scenes in a convincing way.Nithin FCP has done an extra ordinary job in editing department. Music scored by various musicians is great. That old song ‘ Dol bhaje’ from Dil chuki hai sanam again reprised on the lead actors. There is no major complaints about cinematography. There are a few frames poorly shot, but it is obtrusive. A few double entendre dialogues offers chuckles to the viewers.
Sunny leone has honed her acting skills very well and did a good job in her double avatar. I know its too early to rope the actor in double avatar. Mohit Ahalawat has supported very well his lading leady. Jay Bhanusali hasn’t got much screen space, but he unfurls the layers of suspense. Rajneesh Duggal performed good as the love interest of leela. The other cast and crew have done a nice job in their respective roles.
On the whole, Ek paheli leela is just not only fairy tale of a voluptuous lady. it will keep you in suspense mode. As movie Is progressing you will go with the movie. What went wrong with ek paheli leela is a few key scenes are unconvincingly executed. Without any hesitation, You can watch this movie for story and ofcourse for sunny too. I will give three and quarter out of five stars.
