A bold risk to create a character driven feature in a musical genre and although the makers fails to pull it off as anticipated the hard work that went behind it is surely visible and plausible. As all Rob Marshall's feature consists, it too scores majestically on all musical numbers; from production design to art design and from choreography to all the beats. And the performance objective is relied upon Daniel Day Lewis who carries it off easily with the help of a great supporting cast like Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard and Judi Dench. Nine is easily adequate up till the musical genre is considered but as soon as the vision gets wide, it fails on craft due to a loosely placed script.
