plot

Set in the fast moving city of Mumbai, Noor is the story of a girl trying to make a mark for herself. Playing the title role of Noor, Sonakshi Sinha plays a journalist while Kanan Gill plays the male lead. Purab Kohli also happens to play a key role in the movie.

Verdict

“A refreshingly good concept is marred by some sluggish treatment!”

How many times have you heard terms like Presstitute, Sold Media or Fake News ? A lot of times I guess. With the advent of digital journalism, researching and spending time into a story has reduced significantly. Journalists or common man too for that matter, break news or post stories without proper research and verification, not realizing the effect that it can have on the people.


That is one point that you will find being over emphasized in the movie- a long lecture on the ethics of journalism. It has been stressed so much that not once but twice was it stressed in the movie. To a point it was ok, but then it got a little OTT.


Noor is about a university topper who is trying to get into some ‘serious journalism’. The way she treats entertainment journalism is something I really did not feel happy about. I mean hi, there, art and culture is as important a part of the society as anything else. But that is not the only problem this movie has. The relation between Noor and her Boss was way to utopian. You cannot get away with shouting at your boss, when the fault is yours, and then suddenly gate crashing at his private dinner! And why are all the journalists in the film Bengalis is something I couldn’t figure out yet!


The Bridget Jones style storyline looked pretty and great in the beginning. Every girl out there could absolutely relate to the everyday struggle that Noor has to go through. From balancing between personal and professional life to balancing your body weight, it was all bang on. Till interval, it was a good journey but post it, the pace slackened and the journey was just downhill.


I have not read Saba Imtiaz’s ‘Karachi You’re Killing Me’ from which the film has been adapted, so I have no idea how much it sticks to the book.


It was really pleasant to see Sonakshi taking the film on her shoulders completely. In fact she is the only round character in the film. And it is way better than her previous woman centric movie ‘Akira’. It is sparky, breezy and light but the second half will leave you disappointed. Purab Kohli looks attractive, and so does Kanan Gill and Shibani Dandekar, but they have very little flesh in their characters.


 


The movie is a one time watch that you might think about watching this weekend!
