Cinematography done by Keiko Nakahara is commendable along with Amaal Malik's refreshing tunes but an overall opportunity completely gone wasted.
22 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Journalism can be an evil activity as long as you know when it is the right time to expose somebody. So basically this is true story based movie but with a different name and city.

Honestly, the trailer did put some interest to my excitement for this film making me think that this could be the comeback for Sonakshi Sinha. But when I saw this, I felt like y expectations just went down the drain.

So the movie focuses on a broadcast journalist named Noor Roy Choudhury who lives a cringe- worthy life that involves being overweight, expecting some bad luck when it involves work such as getting to an interview with Sunny Leone who makes an appearance in the film all soaked by the Mumbai rain, and getting reprimands from her boss which in addition includes having a broken geyser in her house and pressuring her maid to fix it. Basically when Noor tries to expose a piece of news, it becomes a war for Mumbai that results in the death of her Maid's brother who was the victim in the exposure of the news resulted by her photographic boyfriend named Ayaan that she got duped by. Basically what Noor does to fix this matter and to try hard to expose the doctor involved in the maid's brother's departure is basically what this film is about.

I'll put the positive differences aside but this movie is quite frankly a drag like the informational factors in this movie are as low as if Anubhav Sinha or as if the director of Roy was making this.

The writing elements are terrible like clearly this was supposed to be a movie about a journalistic hero but this movie really tried hard. The humor in this movie was rather sluggish and really didn't fit the part for this movie. The dialogues in the movie are cheesy with such one-liners like I hate my life or becoming daily savitri to tedhi savitri.

The acting in this movie was average at best. I am almost thinking that every film Sonakshi is doing involves scripts that could just put her career down the drain. She is not a bad actress but her roles like these will just familiarize yourself on already seeing her previous film roles like Lootera or Dabangg which means that she just couldn't really leave her comfort zone.

Kaman Gill (not the one from Phillauri) did make me laugh when I saw his comedy stand ups on Youtube but his acting in the movie was something I didn't like seeing especially when it came to his dialogues.

Purab Kohli in my opinion gave a performance that was slightly better than what he did in Rock On 2 but he was okay which did give me the enjoyment.

Shibani Dandekar is rarely an actress and more than a money maker and that is what she did for her part as Zara Patel.

The music is highly average at best. Gulabi 2.0 is a decent soundtrack but Uff Yeh Noor is too crass and something you shouldn't include in your loop listening playlist.

The direction and cinematography in the movie is a saving grace especially the editing which makes the film very well paced and very creative. Good job Keiko Nakahara who also did commendable work for Mary Kom.

Overall, this was one movie I really couldn't stand based on its horrible writing and average acting but the good cinematography and music saved it but no one is really going to spend 35 AED just to watch it for these 2 positives. Poor is worth watching but on a T.V broadcast but for more-goers a one-time watch can be counted if you want to learn cinematography and music composition only for Gulabi 2.0.

2.5/5- Journalism is a dogs house.
