Saawariya entices, fitfully springs to life but finally outstays its welcome by a good half-hour.

How can it be that a movie as beautiful to look at as Saawariya is so...boring?

Of all the film's rococo pleasures-the lavish dance numbers, the dramatic rainstorms, and even the gold dust that puffs out when Sakina beats her rugs -- Mukherjee's richly textured diva is the most mesmerizing...

For audiences unaccustomed to the format, the film runs too long -- though it is short by Bollywood standards -- and is repetitive, sentimental and cliched.

Audience Reviews for Saawariya

This is a movie that has you captivated with complete interest from beginning to end. Although the story plot dwindles a bit, it's the characters that strikes a most mesmerizing effect. The cinematography is also amazing. Great music! Great cast. Zohra Sehgal truly shines once again. Definitely worthy.

I really wanted to see this film. what a disappointment. You think it is going to be some visual masterpiece with great songs, instead you get okay visuals with so-so songs. I could not remember one song from this film, that is a bad sign, in musicals the music is the life of the story and this film had no life. With such a fantastical story you think the director could have captured some of that.

Wow, people were right, it really was a bore. MIGHT have been good if they'd have cast an actor instead of Ranbir Kapoor.
