Luck by chance : Old wine in new bottle

LBC is the same old story of a struggling person get into a love triangle and at the end try to resolve it. There are numerous examples in bollywood, ooh sorry ... in "Hindi Film Industry" like "Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman", "Rangeela", "Saudagar (Amitabh/Nutan)". But the difference between those movies and LBC is the execution. How it used the characters, also the special appearances and pass the right message to the viewer at the end. What I felt after the show about the movie was one of the very first words from Saurabh Shukla (the acting class teacher) ke "Itna bhi underperformance nahi hona chahiye". Well another surprise for me was, I thought the film will be around Farhan. But what I saw that the movie is around Konkona . Best performer awards definitely go to Rishi Kapoor. Dimple, Juhi, Farhan and Konkona; all were exellent, but failed to find Hritik in that crowd. Liked the story telling also, but definitely not a two and half hour movie. A little bit stretched in some parts.
My rating is 3 + 0.5 for Rishi Kapoor :)
