The Fault in Our Stars Movie Review

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

‘The Fault in Our Stars’, a love story between two dying teenagers, opens with a voiceover from its leading lady Shailene Woodley, promising that this isn’t your typical melodrama that “sugarcoats” the hard bits or uses sappy music to tug at your heartstrings. For the most part, the film keeps that promise, using humor as a tool to address the harsh reality of its protagonists. But by the end, it’s all reduced to a heap of unashamed mawkishness, leaving you struggling to fight back tears.I’m going with three out of five for The Fault in Our Stars. Take along some tissues and prepare to be manipulated.

The Fault in our stars Stays faithful to the book. What you see is what you get. Most love stories end with ‘and they lived happily ever after’. But what happens when you may not live another day? Will you still fall in love, knowing your time is limited? If you like feel-good, escapist films, this one’s not for you. The Fault in Our Stars is one of the most unpretentious tragic love stories told in a heart-warming manner. ‘Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened’ pretty much sums up the story. The film is not about crying over what you may lose, but learning to live with what you do. After all, it’s not the fear of death that makes you bitter, lack of love does.

While The Fault in Our Stars isn’t the greatest book in the world, it is definitely well written. But the twisted sense of humour that the book contains becomes lost as the story transitions to celluloid. The film becomes monotonous, lacking any intensity or mystery; the supposedly star crossed lovers have an awkward, almost forced romance. The fault in The Fault in Our Stars is that it is so obsessed with bringing tears to your eyes that it forgets to bring substance to the table.

To anyone familiar with the book, the film is faithful to a fault from the dialogues to the clothes, the setting and the food, even while skipping over some of the unpleasant details including what would have been an awkward s** scene. “Some infinities are bigger than other infinities” is another favourite line of The Fault in Our Stars – the point being about time being what you make of it. The film may not stand that test of time but, something tells us, the line will. That may be infinite enough.

As any teenager will tell you, it’s easy to be wannabe, but it takes something special to be truly quirky. As a film, The Fault in Our Stars lacks the directorial vision that would have translated the sweet, geeky charm of the book. The lines that read smoothly sound clumsy when spoken. The fault doesn’t lie in the words but it takes a talented director and a superb cast to make the weird wonderful. Unfortunately, The Fault in Our Stars isn’t so lucky.

  1. The Story Premise looks strikingly similar to Manirathnam's Classic 'GEETHANJALI'…. WOW Hollywood Copying Tollywood ?? 😉

    • Dude it's based on a book of the same title . That book is written by 'John Green' & i strongly suspect if he had seen ur aforementioned maniratnam film , so no chance of gettin' any inspiration from there . So , I'ld encourage you to get out of your stupor . Hmphh

  2. hehehe,hollywood coping tollywood???
    looks like chiranjeevi is batman then

Those who like Hollywood movies for action glamor n style stay away… this movie deserves a 3.5/5

  4. my review of #THEFAULTINOURSTARS
    Flawless performances! Flawed Direction! [2.5/5]

    When life gives you tough times, you better learn how to bounce back and have a good laugh at it. Immensely inspired by the idea of diluting the pain with humor, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS is a love-story between two young teenagers fighting for their lives with cancer and its after-effects. This romantic journey, at the very start swears not to be ‘sugarcoated’ or ‘melodramatic’ like other fairytales but apparently ends up being a too simplistic, sentimental & single-tracked tearjerker. May be youngsters in love could relate to it more, I find it just another love-story with some good performances and a few moments to cherish. And my subject of concern here is only the film and not the book.

    With an attached oxygen tank and a tube to her nose, cancer patient Hazel Grace [Played by Shailene Woodley] meets Gus [Ansel Elgort], a charming cancer survivor with an artificial metallic leg in a Cancer Support group…and the chemistry between two gets ignited from the very first encounter. Together they smile at their disabilities in life and also take the journey to fulfill Hazel’s dream to meet her favorite novelist [Williem Dafoe in a delicious appearance], but the stars have their own set of fate written all over.

    Based on John Green’s hysterical bestseller of same name, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS captures the essence, excitement and enthusiasm of first love beautifully with wide-eyed lovers passing on never-ending smiles, crackling one-liners to make other happy and more and more of sweet talks on phone chats but it goes on and on in a single dimension till the second part decides to turn you a puddle of tears by adding melodramatic events. At one point of time, even the witty one-liners lose their steam because of your preempt participation in what comes next.

    Performances are saviors. Shailene Woodley’s charismatic presence as a sadistic but sensible teenager is worth looking at screen. Even in her emotional outbursts, she maintains her promise. Ansel Elgort succeeds in winning hearts [of girls] through his lovely portrayal of a diehard lover who doesn’t leave any stones unturned to make sure Hazel could fulfill her wish. Nat Wolff plays Issac, a partly blind teenager who has been ditched by his girlfriend. He shares some of the good enjoyable moments mostly where he’s seen expressing and throwing off all his anger on things like Gus’ trophies and his ex-girlfriend’s house. Williem Dafoe, after year’s THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL is in top form. As a grumpy moody novelist who doesn’t hesitate to talk rough with even his fans, he is brilliant.

    Overall, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS is a big letdown on the part of Josh Boone. A more cleared vision and a gripping screenplay would have done better. Probably, it’s just another ‘lost in translation’ effort that is better restricted to words and not visuals on screen. Strictly watchable only because of performances! [2.5/5]
