Begin Again Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN (IBNlive)

For his new film, Begin Again, the filmmaker rips off the premise of his own 2006 indie – a pair of unlikely partners drawn together by the promise of making music – and surprisingly, the result isn’t a complete mess. The film’s fairytale quality works like a double-edged sword, at once giving us charming New York montages featuring Ruffalo and Knightley, but also suffocating from under the weight of its own improbable optimism. Begin Again is like a light frothy soufflé – enjoyable while it lasts but not memorable enough to seek out for repeats. I’m going with three out of five.

Gretta (Knightley) and Dave (Levine) are a couple but are also song-writing partners. When Dave gets his big break, will their love and artistic integrity be sacrificed at the altar of his musical success? Despite some hiccups, they manage to scrape together an album. Meanwhile, Gretta’s heart still harbours hope for Dave and when she sees him perform a song one day, it stirs old, bittersweet memories. Decidedly different from super-budget, superhero fare, this one is sometimes sappy but mostly engaging and definitely driven by music.

Although Begin Again is a slow journey, not a second of the 104-minute film could be called boring. If you’ve known failure and heartbreak and woken up one morning unable to remember what it was like to be happy, Begin Again will speak to you like few films can. Adam Levine’s final performance will make you fall in love with the much tattooed musician. I know I went home and played Lost Stars until 3 am. Begin Again has neither heroes, nor anti-heroes. It just has people — pathetic, frustrated, struggling people who are still clinging on to the hope that things will get better. And it has music; and sometimes that is enough too.

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Shalini Langer Site: Indian Express

This film is all about second chances. If you don’t get it from the title, there is the lead actor’s surname, Mulligan. Even so, Begin Again is almost hopeless in the cliched characters and story plots it trots out. However impractical it would be in real life, in Begin Again, all things fall smoothly into place — quite like all the other chips do in the film. Even Dan’s daughter Violet (Steinfeld, suitably surly) is a musical surprise. Music, Dan says, can lend even mundane things a meaning. It does, it does.
