Blind critic movie review of Noor
Director: Sunhil Sippy
Cast: Sonakshi Sinha (as Noor Roy Chaudhary), Purab Kohli (as Ayan Banerjee), Manish Chaudhary (as Shekhar), Kanan Gill (as Saad) and Shibani Dandekar (as Zara).
A blind perspective:
The film is based on Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz's novel 'Karachi, You're Killing Me!'
The movie starts with Noor introducing her boring life in Mumbai.
Noor lives with her father, cat Dimpy and an absentee-maid Malti.
Shekhar is Noor's boss who gives her the task to search true stories about people, but Noor doesn't find them challenging.
Noor is shown to be frustrated with her journalist job; weight loss struggles and life in general.
The story has many comic moments in the start but the twist comes when Noor gets to know the reality of a doctor who has stolen the kidney of her maid Malti's brother Vilas.
Noor thinks she has got her big story and takes the video interview of Malti and Vilas to expose the illegal trade of organs.
But Ayan cheats Noor and publishes the interview story in his name.
After the incident, Malti gets the shock of her life as Vilas gets murdered and this becomes the emotional point in Noor's life.
Sonakshi is at her best as Noor and Manish is in the character of an effective boss in the film. Music is also good in the film.
Overall, this is a one-time watch film. From the view of accessibility, I can say it is an average film. Many important situations in Noor's life has been described by Sonakshi to make it accessible.
Music: 3.5/5A sighted perspective:
Hindi comedy-drama film 'Noor' is a decent entertainer with a good storyline and acting performances by Sonakshi Sinha and the supporting cast.
Sonakshi carries the entire film effortlessly. She succeeds in playing the role of 28-year-old Noor who attracts only negativity in her life in the first half of the film.
The second half is quite interesting to watch as Noor comes in terms with reality and accepts her life as it is. She works hard to correct her one mistake that changed her career and life.
The film manages to describe Noor's journey, her failed relationships, her true bond with friends Saad and Zara, her professional relationship fixes with boss Shekhar and the way she develops a new perspective on life.
The film gives the message to see the good in and around us as one will attract into their life only those things one has a focus on.
Verdict: Noor is a must watch only for Sonakshi Sinha fans!
