Diana (2013) English Movie Reviews Rating, Cast, Videos, Pics - Desimartini.com

Verdict: Diana is a dull biopic that does not provide insight into Princess Diana's life but offers a few poignant moments. One time watch.

Diana Review - Once upon a time there was a lonely PrincessOct 4, 2013NewsDiana is supposed to be a biopic of the last 3 years of Princess Diana's life but if you view it as one you will be highly disappointed. It doesn't do enough to highlight her achievements nor is there any big scene of the huge public outpouring of grief following her death.The movie instead is exclusively a love story of her relationship with the Pakistani surgeon Hasnat Khan. Dodi al Fayed who died with her in the car crash is almost like a post it note tacked onto the main story with not even one scene to establish his character. So view it as a very personal story and you will find it will touch a deep chord of melancholy inside you somewhere.The movie is about loneliness and Diana's craving for a loving relationship.It shows us a broken down Diana after her marriage crashes and her inability to deal with this breakdown. In parallel , it also brings into the spotlight the relentless gaze of the paparazzi who don't leave her alone for even a second which makes it totally impossible for her to have a private life. She glows under this spotlight in public functions where she dazzles with her charm and beauty and she wilts under it when it assaults her private moments.Naomi Watts does have Diana's iconic haircut and she perfects the demure peeping gaze but she cannot match her beauty or her radiance. It is impossible I think to replicate Diana's magic. Naomi looks almost ordinary in most parts of the movie.Perhaps it is just as well, since this is more a personal story than a biography. But still, a bit of a larger than life presence would have lifted the movie a bit higher. Naveen Andrews as Hasnat Khan, the Pakistani surgeon does a decent job of a man faced with the tough situation of being in love with the world's most famous woman.Do not expect to see a blow by blow account of the Diana story. No Candle in the Wind funeral song, no histrionics or angry scenes betweenDiana and Charles. Just a quiet sad story of a very lonely princess. Makes you want to not let your kids rad fairy tales anymore.Smita Vyas Kumar Diana Review - Once upon a time there was a lonely Princess Oct 4, 2013
