Rating – 3.5
Noor is based on a novel by Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz, called Karachi, You’re Killing Me!. Though the novel is based in Karachi, the makers have taken creative liberties with the script and have set the character and locations around in Mumbai, where Sonakshi plays a journalist. It’s her journey through the field of media, covering dangerous stories while also straightening out her own life and passion. And before you say it, it’s not a breezy Page 3 it also showcases the misadventures of the lady journalist and love life as she navigates her way through Mumbai.
Sonakshi Sinha had already shown us the potential that she can be more than just a damsel in distress with her moving performance in Vikramaditya Motwane’s Lootera, co-starring Ranveer Singh. She also proved she can kick ass as convincingly as the heroes she used to be paired once with, in Akira. Though we didn’t really appreciate how her character was portrayed in Force 2 (a bumbling RAW agent who needed the hero to guide), it was still better than what Sonakshi played in Action Jackson, Rowdy Rathore and R…Rajkumar. But with Noor, we have n all new refreshing change with Sonakshi playing a journalist for the first time. Directed by Sunhil Sippy, the film also stars Purab Kohli in lead roles. But will Sonakshi be able to strike a chord with the audience with this film? Will Noor bring out a turning point in Sonakshi’s career? Here, let me give you a quick gist of what the film is all about…Also read: Noor song Jise Kehte Pyaar Hai: Sonakshi Sinha and Purab Kohli’s love story will make your heart flutter – watch video
On the other side you may find the film instantly reminding you of Alia Bhatt’s Dear Zindagi, of course for the good. The trailer shows Sonakshi Sinha’s character, who is a journalist, not being happy with her life. She is single, has a group of friends, a job where she is forced to interview Sunny Leone when she clearly wants to cover some serious issues, a guy who she admires but doesn’t know if she loves him. So far so good, but the trailer suddenly takes a U-turn and becomes an investigative one, almost giving you the feel of No One Killed Jessica. Probably, the makers want to show us the journey on how Noor identifies her own self through different phases of life but we hope the message comes out clear.
The Music of Noor has been composed by Amaal Malik and R.D. Burman, and lyrics are penned by Manoj Muntashir and Kumaar. The album features about five songs which comprise of three original compositions and two versions of a yesteryear classic sung by Armaan Malik, Amaal Malik, Tulsi Kumar, Yash Narvekar, Sukriti Kakar and Prakriti Kakar. However, while the film has a slice-of-life feel. The album doesn’t hold any recall or repeat value and will be forgotten once the movie releases. Probably, the rehash hasn’t worked in favour of this album. If asked to pick one favourite song from this album, we would go with Jise Kehte Pyaar Hai.
