The film Citylights which is supposed to be an adaptation of the English hit, Metro Manila is true and original in it's essence. And the most refreshing part of the film is that Hansal Mehta did not ponder upon the typical 'happy ending' funda of Bollywood and rather stressed on the dark but real side of a metro city.
All in all, Hansal Mehta's Citylights starring Rajkumar Rao and Patralekha is a delight to watch and even though it might make you saddened by virtue of it's tragic tale, Citylights will surely leave you with the words in your mind, "Great movie yaar...!"
CITYLIGHTS is one of the most captivating movie experiences of late. An expertly-crafted heartbreaker, this tragic tale has a riveting plot, power-packed narrative, soulful music and arresting performances to haunt you much after the screening has concluded. A must watch!
This hard-hitting and terrific film will not just entertain you but promise to show you the mirror of reality. CityLights is one such gripping film that shows the dark underbelly of metropolitan cities. The harsh reality of life has been perfectly executed by Rajkummar and Patralekha.
CityLights is a very important film, it gives us a reality check. Mumbai is known to be the city of dreams but it does have a big share of shattered dreams too.
It's a good one but from the team of Shahid and with Mahesh Bhatt backing the project, we expected more.
