Think of the new Sonakshi Sinha starrer Noor as the possible outcome if Bridget Jones’ Diary and Madhur Bhandarkar’s Page 3 got drunk, hooked up, and forgot about protection.Although handsomely mounted and evocatively shot, Noor lacks a sense of genuine urgency. The protagonist’s journey from flaky to fully reformed is never convincing, and in the end you’re left feeling that she could learn some empathy in addition to responsible reporting.

Noor the film is as mixed up as its female protagonist of the same name: it gets some things right and the others horribly wrong. First, the good stuff. What a delight to see a woman fronting a film, even if Noor’s (Sonakshi Sinha) character is somewhat of a young Bridget Jones template.The big problem with Noor is not when she is facing up to the good-looking men in her life, which includes her dad, played with wry humour by M K Raina. It is when she is being a professional: as a journalist, which she purports to be, Noor is a disaster.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By:Sukanya Site:Rediff

Nowhere resembling the frothy premise it promised to be, Noor’s initial display of quirk is just a ploy to endear the audience, one that is conveniently forgotten for the sake of cloying emotionality and absurd symbolism where accepting a Facebook request is indicative of reconciliation. So long it’s true to its confection roots, Noor works, thanks to the attractive bonhomie Gill and Kohli’s real guy appeal generates around Sonakshi’s star. But when it engages in shallow activism for the heck of it, it rambles and drags.

Noor, a skilfully photographed adaptation of Saba Imtiaz’s book, Karachi, You’re Killin Me. Sinha musters up a couple of sincere moments but frequently tries too hard, while her character comes across airheaded, incompetent and unlikable – which wouldn’t have been a bad thing had the film gone full Legally Blonde and embraced its silliness. Alas, it doesn’t. It tries to sermonise, with lines like “We’re not just journalists, we’re human too” tossed around by these exclusively Bengali journalists who are appallingly cavalier about how they must behave “like vultures.”

The first twenty minutes of the film establishes the film’s characters. The first half of the film is decent but the film’s second half plays the spoilsport with its excessive length. The pace of the film is the biggest culprit post interval. Also had the culmination been convincing, the film would have created an even stronger impact. On the whole, NOOR is a decent one time watch for the subject it addresses.

Noor’s life that way is meant to mirror the urbane, liberal, progressive, metropolitan upper middle-class. As for her work, as I said, there are several colleagues in my newsroom who have stories like hers, if not better, and might actually want to make this film. This sense of recognition can be rankling. Throughout, you can’t help but wonder how much better this movie could’ve been. But then, like journalism, this film should be seen for what it is. And hey it isn’t bad at all.

There’s an instant connect with Noor’s world; her friends are as silly as yours, her issues are at times frivolous but her quarter-life crisis seems credible. The film is slightly over-written (a whole lot of dialogue) but lines are mostly funny.Since the movie gets this generation right, it has to get its flaws right too. Noor introduces a conflict which is serious and relevant, but offers very little by way of resolution. it simply cannot cover-up the lazy writing towards the end.

Noor is not path breaking cinema. But it’s not regressive as well. It tries too hard man. But it has some well-written scenes too. It gets unnecessarily lengthy. But it does have a message at the end. Yeah, a message that comes after much drama and deliberation. This is by far Sonakshi’s most candid performance. She is quite a natural and full points to embracing her weight issues and making it look so cool.

Ratings:3/5 Review By:Manjusha Site:Gulfnews

The characters in this film are flawed but fabulous. There’s no unnecessary melodrama in the first half. But the same couldn’t be said about the second half.After the interval, the film unravels and the grasp that Sippy had earlier displayed on his subjects and his plot comes slightly unhinged. The community journalism burning in Noor and the dramatic twists that came with exposing an organ-stealing racket seemed forced. . Noor may remind you of Bridget Jones, the hit Hollywood character played by Renee Zellweger, but that doesn’t make her any less real. Watch this if you are in the mood for an enjoyable feel-good film.
