Noor is based on Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz's novel, ' Karachi, You're Killing Me'. The intention of the film is noble but it's when Sippy tries to pack in too much ingredients when Noor's coming-of-the-age journey loses its purpose and ends up being superficially effective though it has its own 'shining' moments. Thankfully, the makers don't indulge in melodrama to reduce it to a sob-fest and that works fine for Noor.
Sonakshi Sinha as the self-obsessed Noor keeps you hooked as she brings in certain sense of vulnerabilty to her character and you connect with her quarterly life-crisis at every level.
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!
