‘Photograph’ Film Review: Mumbai Romance Feels Sweet but Slight
Meet-cutes are the hallmark of any romantic comedy, and although Ritesh Batra’s “Photograph” is more of a genial drama, its meet-cute is so essential to the plot, the film is named after it.

Rafi is a photographer working the tourists at the Gateway of India in Mumbai. He has a good line for roping in customers: “Years from now, when you look at this photograph, you’ll feel the sun on your face, this wind in your hair, and you’ll hear all these voices again, or it will all be gone. Gone forever.”
