    This is a film that unsettled me, and moved me. This is also a film I will savour for a long time. This is a film that unsettled me, and moved me. This is also a film I will savour for a long time.

    …bound to make you uncomfortable, but also brings the contentment of experiencing something new in cinema.

  • Miss Lovely breaks a lot of Bollywood rules. You can bristle at its indulgences but, I’ll still root for a movie that fiddles with the rules over an easy commercial one. Especially if it has a climax that features blood and a Nazia Hassan song.

  • Miss Lovely moves slowly, unravelling like real life. It demands the viewer read into silences, see the phantoms hidden by smoke and the cheap dazzle of measly successes and the menace lurking in smiles and embraces. The violence and degradation that characterise the films that Vicky and Sonu make, seeps into their lives subtly. The point at which Miss Lovely flounders is in its last chapter.

    No doubt, portions of the film are realistic but that can’t be the reason for the audience to like them. Also, the entire film has a very depressing feel to it, making it so much less enjoyable for the audience. On the whole, Miss Lovely is a fare more suited for the festival circuit. At the box-office, its run will be far from lovely.

  • …a cinematic feast—its release is a great start to the year in Indian independent film-making.

  • The let down in this film is that it could have been quite beautiful if the crucial segments had been handled without the melodrama. Most of the film is slow and muted, and the end jars in context, and not in a way that can complement by contrast.

    Whatever the flaws may be, the power-packed performance of the actors, especially, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has made the film a worth watch.
