Diana English Movie Review

Ratings:1.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand’s Verdict (CNN IBN – IBNLive)

Director Oliver Hirschbiegel’s clunky film on the Princess of Wales, otherwise referred to as “the most famous woman in the world”, struggles to scratch the surface and to present any insight into her famously troubled life. Shot like a low-budget television soap, its script lacking depth, its performances unmistakably affected, the film is a disappointment, except in those moving scenes that remind us of her selfless humanitarian work. I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for ‘Diana’. Like the cheap tabloids that routinely peddled salacious tidbits of her alleged private life, this film too is a hack job.

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Anupama Chopra Site:The Front Row ( Hindustan Times)

Diana is misguided, trite, unintentionally funny and – the worst sin in my book – just flat out tedious. Based on the book Diana: Her Last Love, the film is about the last two years of Diana’s life and her tempestuous love affair with the Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan. This rocky romance is rendered wholly lifeless by Hirschbiegel and writer Stephen Jeffreys. There is no room for subtlety or subtext here. Diana has the depth of a Hallmark card and some of the worst dialogue I’ve heard recently. Diana is an inexplicably bland portrait of an extraordinarily dramatic life. It takes some talent to make Lady Di boring. I’m going with two stars.

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Renuka Vyavahare Site:Times of India (TOI)

Except for getting Princess Diana’s iconic hairdo, outfits and head tilts right, Diana, the biopic fails to recreate the magic of the ‘queen of hearts’. The film is based on her real-life relationship with a Pakistani heart surgeon, Hasnat Khan ( Naveen Andrews), whom she met two years before her death. The lesser known love affair disappoints, since it makes the film look like any other mediocre, run-of-the-mill romantic drama.If you are fine with seeing Diana as the ‘needy’ woman solely looking for love, living in suffocating secrecy, you may like the film. If you expect to revisit the aura of mystery surrounding her, you will be disappointed.

  1. First thing is that this is a Film saying something about feelings of a woman, longing for Love and not merely a TV Documentry or a Biopic with real life clippings..so its best not to expect that !!This Famous saying by poet Rumi…”Somewhere between right
    and wrong there is a garden…I will meet you there”. That’s the garden of love,
    where Diana wanted to go to. The film says a lot about the private life of
    Diana, which I guess has been researched on some hard facts. Young Lioness..One
    of the most beautiful women of all times…had the whole world in her palm yet
    she yearned for The one thing, that is a
    gift of only the fortunate- LOVE…She was denied that from her rebound affair
    with (one in a million) heart Surgeon- Dr.Khan, who realistically and logically,
    choose his career and family over her…only
    because she was a princess. But sadly Dr.Khan did not know that love is not to be
    analysed from the head …But FELT from the heart, which was what Diana felt…always
    from her Heart !! What I gather from the
    Film is that…Despite what was expected from the world’s most important woman at
    that time, from the Society, Royalty, Paparazzi
    and the World at large… she tried her best to Just come out of those clutches
    of Royalty to which she had wed into… Yet it seems like No one wanted to see
    her in any different image other than Princess Diana…Queen of England ! I feel there is that one dialogue from the
    movie- Notting hill by Julia Roberts, which best fits at the END…where Diana
    probably might want to have said to the world that…After all… I'm just a
    girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her!! …R.I.P. Diana.
