• Although handsomely mounted and evocatively shot, Noor lacks a sense of genuine urgency. The protagonist’s journey from flaky to fully reformed is never convincing, and in the end you’re left feeling that she could learn some empathy in addition to responsible reporting.

    Sonakshi Sinha is breezy when she faces up to the good-looking men in her life. The trouble is that she is a complete klutz as a journalist.

    Noor does not understand journalism, it fails to establish enough angst for the protest it hopes to ignite, it stops being the rom-com (the one thing that the movie was getting right) pretty soon and it does not give the victims enough time for us to empathise, nor does it ponder over the aggressors enough, for us to loathe them.

    Under Sippy’s direction, the cast has acknowledged the clamoring script with performances that are hard, brittle and strained to the breaking point. Sinha is splendid, except when she is being consciously cute in this disappointingly shallow movie.

  • So long it’s true to its confection roots, Noor works, thanks to the attractive bonhomie Gill and Kohli’s real guy appeal generates around Sonakshi’s star. But when it engages in shallow activism for the heck of it, it rambles and drags. 

  • Sonakshi’s film shows the mundane but essential pursuits of an ambitious but confused middle-class girl…

    The film is strictly for Sonakshi Sinha’s fans. It doesn’t offer anything new. You can give it a miss.

    The only thing that Noor gets right about journalism today is that it takes little to go viral. We still can’t make sense of what Noor has done to become a sensation but by the looks of it recording a “Mumbai, You’re Killing Me” rant, which will make Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation turn red, and uploading it on Facebook is all it takes.

  • The film is a poor take on investigative journalism with a lead character that is highly flawed.

  • 4 years have flown between the remarkable Lootera and this film which, despite its follies, serves as a good showcase for her talent. Here is hoping we do not have to wait another 4 years for a film that does treat her like a prop.

    Despite an earnest performance by Sonakshi Sinha Noor fails to make an impact. The movie is so poorly researched it gives journalist a bad name.

    ‘Noor’ is a straight forward tale of an urban girl dealing with her life and problems. The movie will be loved by urban girls as the connectivity will be very high. As, for rest the slow pace might be a problem for this one time watch film.

  • It is difficult to say if I’d have enjoyed Noor better if it were more focused on one or two aspects of life that it picked to comment on. The lectures in the second half were so full of themselves that it is a task to be objective about the film and imagining Noor without them.

    Sonakshi Sinha’s latest offering isn’t a picture-perfect world when it comes to viewing as it has its own set of flaws. But it does make up for a fluffy watch with your pals who stick by your side no matter what life tosses at you. In a nutshell, Noor’s self-discovery journey triumphs over her journalist self and she at least deserves a chance!
