News & Interviews for Saawariya
Critic Reviews for Saawariya
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?
For audiences unaccustomed to the format, the film runs too long -- though it is short by Bollywood standards -- and is repetitive, sentimental and cliched.
Saawariya is 2 hours 11 minutes of wide-screen close-ups, fanciful sets, colorful costumes, bellybuttons, almost-kisses and 10 pumped-up, achingly sweet songs.
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.
