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.
