Noor Movie Review
Director Sunhil Sippy’s Bollywood movie Noor featuring Sonakshi Sinha in the title role, has received positive reviews from the audience, who have praised the Dabangg girl. In the age of Arnab Goswami, journalists have become something akin to a personality cult. Few people, however, recognise and applaud the work done by investigative journos on the ground. Noor, however, aims to change all that. The film is a drama with a healthy dose of romance and comedy thrown in.
The movie, based on Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz’s novel Karachi, You’re Killing Me!, revolves around a journalist, as she navigates her way through Mumbai. Noor (Sonakshi Sinha), a journalist in her twenties, striggles as she tries to juggle her work and personal life. Her quest to find a man who gets her, quite like her old friend Saad, is thrown into turmoil when she stumbled across a situation that gets her investigative juices flowing.
Charting the course of her investigation across the beating heart of Mumbai, and its myriad of social upheavals, Noor reports on a city always on the brink of chaos, yet one that somehow manages to find symmetry in it. Bollywood has rarely delved into the depth of journalism and its sundry dark alleys, and that’s one of the reasons why audiences have embraced the film’s premise.
Of course, the extremely talented Sonakshi Sinha, delivers a show-stealing performance as the gritty, yet troubled, Noor. Kanan Gill, Shibani Dandekar and Purab Kohli add a hefty dash of verve and talent to a cast that’s not short on thespian pedigree. Noor certainly ticks all the technical boxes, with DoP Keiko Nakahara’s cinematography bringing Mumbai to life, for better or worse, on the screen. Amaal Mallik’s songs, Naren Chandavarkar and Benedict Taylor’s score and Ishita Moitra Udhwani’s script bolster what is alrready a strong film.
