Noor Critic Reviews
Noor User Reviews
Sonakshi Sinha off-late has been choosy with the kind of roles she’s doing. Her last outing ‘Akira’ was a hint that she is no more into the run-of-the-mill kind of roles but something where she gets to play the central character. In her latest outing ‘Noor’ she plays Noor Roy Chaudhary a journo who’s life revolves around her nonchalant father (M.K.Raina), dear friends Saad (Kanan Gill) and Zara (Shibani Dandekar), her newly acquired boyfriend Ayan (Purab Kohli), editor boss (Manish Chaudhuri) and amiable maid Malti (Smita Tambe). Noor is just not battling it out to get noticed in the world of famous journalists but also tries to fix her dysfunctional life, home and relationships. All this she deals until she comes up with a scam that she gets to investigate. ‘Noor’ starts off well making it interesting but derails in the latter part as it becomes serious. Nevertheless, Sonakshi’s performance is worth a watch as is the movie.
Noor is sure to take Sonakshi a notch higher as an actress; she plays her role to perfection. Not that the film doesn’t have its flaws but it surely is better than the recent released films. In case you happen to miss it you can surely catch it online or may be one of the movie channels on TV.
