Too many elements, a haphazard narration, a bland Katrina Kaif, some breath-takingly beautiful locales, magnificent Kashmir, a broodingly intense Aditya and a complexed Tabu; that summarises Fitoor for you!


I don't remember anything from Charles Dickens' novel so can't make any comparisons there but given the hype and curiosity around Fitoor, the movie fails to live up to expectations.


There are too many elements in the movie and for most of the time, it just drags. And when the story finally starts unveiling, things happen too suddenly that you feel lost.


There are too many questions that arise in front of you such as the point of having a Indo-Pak angle when it has no relevance to the love story. If I got into details, you might lash out for spoiling the movie for you, whatever of it there is. 


However, there are definitely a few plus points too. Aditya Roy Kapur owns the show completely. It's all about Noor and his roller coaster journey. His intense eyes and the craziness of love expressed by him is applaud worthy. And of course, that hot bod. Tabu is a terrific actor regardless of anything. Her confused, dichotic role might make you want to pull your hair but she's graceful as ever. Katrina Kaif has nothing to do but look pretty, which she does. The character required no histrionics, obviously so she won't disappoint you. Aditi Rao Hydari, in her small role is pretty impactful. Ajay Devgn's cameo is noteworthy too!


Special mention to the young Noor and Firdaus, what an exceptional performance by them, especially the boy.


Also, for all of you who love the visuals of Pashmina, the video is not a part of the movie which is a bummer as I was looking forward to it. The songs are here and there. But the cinematography steals brownie points. Kashmir looks like heaven on earth and you'll definitely want to rush there. The chemistry between the lead is great, too and this could've made for a good watch had it been less on melodrama and dealt with more subtlety.


Overall, Fitoor has nothing new to offer. If you're an ARK fan, you'll be in awe of him after the movie finishes. In my opinion, it is not the best option for Valentines Day and is avoidable. It won't leave you with a feel-good vibe either. Watch, if you have nothing better to do. 


P.S. 0.5 extra marks because I have a soft corner for Aditya  :P
