Deepika Padukone's performance as blind girl in promos of Lagengey Parindey is already being talked about. Yash Raj's much-awaited venture starring Neil-Deepika sees light of the day today.
Director: Pradeep Sarkar
Cast: Neil Nitin Mukesh, Deepika Padukone, Kay Kay Menon
Synopsis: The movie is about a group of youngsters living in the backstreets of Mumbai. It is an unusual love story of Nandu and Pinky whose path to love is paved by friendship, grit and hope. He is wild. He is born to fight.
He is One-Shot Nandu. For the raw, champion street fighter, one-shot is literally what it takes. Absolutely wild, fierce, and hungry to win, this fighter takes boxing to a new level by knocking down his opponents — blindfolded. Needless to say, One-Shot lives life on his own terms and is a local hero amongst his friends. But all that soon changes, when he meets Pinky Palkar. She is blind. She is born to fly. A unique girl, a powerhouse of talent! On one hand she works at a regular, boring 9-to-5 job at a mall but on the other hand, she is a kickass dancer on skates! Her life’s ambition is only one — to rise above all the ‘losers’ living in her locality and carve a niche for herself. She will use her talent to show the others that she can win in life.
Born wild, will one-shot Nandu ever learn to love?
Born to fly, will Pinky Palkar ever learn to see?

It’s now a dump, but the lads rally for a night of drinking in the hot tub. Somehow, the hot tub takes them back to 1986, on a fateful night
for each of them. Maybe if they do everything the same way they did that night, they’ll get back to the future so Jacob can be born. There are serious temptations to do things differently. Will they make it back to their sorry lives? And what about Jacob?
