Ratings:.2.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand  Site: News18

One instant photograph – it’s what brings two strangers together in Ritesh Batra’s new film, that’s titled, simply, Photograph. The photograph in question may be instant, but this is a film that takes its time, leisurely setting up its story, taking us into the worlds and the lives of both its protagonists. There are captivating moments, winning dialogues, and little touches that bring a smile, but sadly the film never comes together to offer a fully satisfying experience.In the end Photograph feels oddly out of focus. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five.

Photograph is a meditative movie on a relationship that I hesitate to call love. And yet, Photograph doesn’t come together as beautifully as The Lunchbox did. The screenplay isn’t as sharp or insightful. In places the film is so quiet that it feels inert. I’m not going to lie – I did get impatient. And yet the next morning, I found myself thinking about Rafi and Miloni. There is a tenderness that stays with you. I’m going with three stars.

Ratings:.4.5/5 Review By: Raja Sen  Site: Hindustan Times

“This is a country so big it has room for anything,” a character says. “Anything except what it has forgotten,” someone corrects him. More than anything else, this film is poetry. Photograph reminds us to believe in minor magic. Here is a film about a city that makes room for everything, from formulaic films to ghosts. Like when posing for a camera, all we need to know is where to look.

You need patience with Photograph. It takes a while to warm up to this plaintive world of Batra’s and the pacing is a little agonising at points. His ideas are wonderful but his insistence on giving the film an understated touch can leave you rather underwhelmed. Though our lead pair communicate with glances and sparing words, you’re not quite convinced that these two are soulmates.

However, if you appreciate ambiguity, the film leaves a lot to imagination and interpretation, which has its own charm. The open-ended climax in particular is cleverly done. It makes you ponder and crave for more. Photograph isn’t a perfect shot and is lured by exquisite nothingness but it’s intriguing and takes you back in time. Like love and life, it’s uncertain and hopeful.

Ritesh Batra’s story is interesting and a bit in THE LUNCHBOX zone. Ritesh Batra’s screenplay is engaging at places but falls flat in several scenes. The element of consistency is missing. Ritesh Batra’s dialogues are simple and realistic.On the whole, PHOTOGRAPH is too niche and ambiguous and coupled with the lack of buzz it’s chances of success at the box office are slim.

An issue with the film is that while it tells a lot, it says very little — which is ironic given that a photograph is expected to convey a thousand words. Let’s just say this one’s a passport photo— a contained profile that offers a glimpse but not the big picture.

But amidst all the mystique and the sense of longing, Rafiq and Miloni’s tale feels bland after a point. Despite lucrative backstories, the characters haven’t been etched that well. The premise is promising, the build-up not so much. The film’s slow and at times unmoving pace adds to the low points of the film. Not to forget, a few moments in the film that try too hard to be understated don’t add up.In the age of selfies and quick uploads, Ritesh Batra’s Photograph takes time to develop. Sadly though, only parts of it are worth a thousand words, rest fall rather too silent. .

Ratings:.2/5 Review By: Shubhra   Site: Indian Express

The lines exchanged between Rafi and Miloni, and Rafi’s loud grandmother (Jaffar), for the most part, state the obvious. What should have been a delicate, whimsical knitting of feelings, turns banal. Siddiqui struggles to make something of his Rafi, with his dead-end job as an insta-photographer, capturing tourist custom at the Gateway of India. Malhotra’s reserved young woman is never quite credible: her impassiveness doesn’t allow us to see inside of her, and her breakthrough moment comes only when she smiles.
