Laaga Chunari Mein Daag [My Veil is Stained] is an old fashioned type of melodrama, and I ate it up with a spoon. I hadn"t had a good cry watching a movie in quite awhile, and there's nothing I love more than Ranishek. There's something about their jodi that I just adore. I don"t know if it's how tiny she is, and how tall he is, and how he looms over her protectively. He's just swoony paired with Rani, and especially so in this film. This film also passes the Bechdel test spectacularly. Rani plays the older of two sisters who grow up in Benares on the banks of the Ganges. They live in a big ramshackle old house with a father who is too ill to work (Anupam Kher) and a mother who's struggling to keep the family afloat financially (Jaya Bachchan). Konkona Sen Sharma is Chutki and is still in school, whil Rani Mukerji as Badki realizes she needs to find work to take the pressure off her mother.
