Noor is based on the novel called as ‘Karachi, You’re Killing Me, written by Saba Imtiaz. Noor Roy Choudhary (Sonakshi Sinha) is a journalist works for a TV channel. She is unhappy with her life. She wants to do a story, which can increase a provoking impact on the society. But unfortunately, she has to take the interview of Sunny Leone. She has a poor love life. Though she does well in her job, but somebody else takes the credit for her work.
On one day, she proves herself. She fights to save other people’s lives. To know about her mission and her achievement in this mission, you have to watch ‘Noor!’
The movie’s first half is refreshing. It has a cool, urban look. You can connect with Noor’s everyday life easily.
Art Direction is amazing. Also, Keiko Nakahara has shot Mumbai very beautifully.
Sonakshi Sinha has done amazing performance despite having a strong script. Purab Kohli has done a decent job. Shibani Dandekar, Kanan Gill, Smita Tambe are outstanding.
The music is average. The background score is ok.
The major flaw in the movie is its script. It has a weaker script. The story can’t bring a required impact over us.
Noor’s mission for the social cause shown in the movie looks baseless. Everything happens very easily in the movie, which looks unbelievable.
The script has not any gripping value. In addition, it has a slow pace. Somewhere, we get bored while watching it.
Sorry to say, but the director hasn’t given the justice to the original novel. Also, he could do some research about journalists as well as Journalism. The Editing could have been crisper.
Is this movie worth a watch?
Noor is a one-time watch movie. If the script had written with the conviction, it could be Sonakshi’s best work. But anyways, watch for the fun-filled first half.
