Noor - Preview

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Coming-of-age, social message, comment on media, con-men – Noor covers a lot of ground. Which might have been fine, if only it didn't start its sermon.

Sonakshi Sinha seems to be playing an all-in-one role here – the slapsticky comic relief, the “charging to make a difference” protagonist and the heroine. The film itself wants to do both – make a strong statement and appeal to the audience's funny bone – especially that of the younger generation.

While the Sonakshi-trying-hard-to-be-cute bits didn't amuse me at all, I am intrigued by what the writers have up their sleeves in terms of the challenges she faces after the conflict is exposed. I am hoping against hopes that it isn't just lip-service in the name of having a woman as the protagonist. At the very least, I hope all the slapstick is done with in the trailer and all the real meat of the story is left for the film.
