Noor – This Is Way Too Gloomy
It takes a lot of interesting elements to add on if you are planning to make a woman-oriented film. Noor is the second woman centric movie after Akira by Snakshi Sinha. The film talks about the life in a city and is inspired from a book “Karachi You Are Killing Me”. Let’s see what Noor has to offer to its viewers.
Noor (Sonakshi Sinha) is a struggling journalist and interested in covering and featuring serious stories, whereas her senior keeps he busy with entertainment oriented scoops. Accidently, Noor comes across a serious issue and plans to feature it; things go awry and from there starts her fight for justice. What happens next is what the film is all about.
Noor is a soulless film. It lacks good direction, it is weak on performances and the cherry on top is that it’s super slow. All in all, it is a total waste of time and money. It looks like the director was too confused to bring out the seriousness of the subject. Plotting is weak and storytelling is anything but artistic.
Performance wise, Sonakshi Sinha is a letdown, she could have pulled off the character maturely but this one looks a bit half-baked character. Noor have many emotional scenes but they don’t make any impact on viewers, which is a negative sign. Purab is good in his short appearance.
Noor does not offer good or recall-able music. All in all Noor is a confusion to create something subject oriented yet fails to communicate the message effectively. The film is so dragged and slow that it becomes difficult to sit with any interest in the cinema. This film is a typical case of how a film should not be executed.
If you have missed watching this movie by Sonakshi Sinha, you did a favor for yourself.
