There is no recognisable star in Laapataa Ladies, or Lost Ladies as it was titled for its world premiere and subsequent screenings at the 48th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Yet, the film sparkles like a starry night sky over a village, its brilliance unhindered by the light pollution of a metropolis.

Laapataa Ladies, written by Sneha Desai, directed by Kiran Rao, and co-produced by Tanaji Dasgupta, premiered at the 48th Toronto International Film Festival.
