After all Diana was also a human like everybody else and I did not find anything wrong with her romantic affair in her final days. In fact, as a cinematic it chronicles on the sufficient amount of limited characters. Lots of the big names were just left out. That's great because the movie had all the time to concentrate on the particular relationship. Except that I waited for the end tragedy scene which never came. I assumed, that could have been the highlight of the movie, which might have brought the tears. So I believe it is a great let down, the movie did not have the car crash scene. Especially the real reason behind it remains fishy and mystery. Naveen Andrews was great, but he was no way near to Hasnat Khan in appearance.
There might be some flaws in the movie, because in the biopics people often complain about many things. Those who observed all this incident closely at that time when it happened may recognize errors. But I feel modification sometimes need while transforming a real life to cinematic. Like any romantic movie it can be enjoyed by everyone who love biography. I did and liked it, certainly not a class movie like it should have been.
The fact that the movie concentrates on this one relationship means its already doomed to be mediocre at best. Romantic-dramas are generally dull, formulaic affairs and romantic biopics are even worse, as they smack of voyeurism. This movie is no different: the romantic side is dull and schmaltzy.
What prevents this movie from being a total waste of time is the other aspects of Diana's life: her untiring work for a number of causes, and the results of these efforts, being one. More darkly, the invasiveness of the paparazzi, and media in general, is examined. Pity the movie didn't examine how they contributed directly to her death...
Naomi Watts' performance in the lead role is quite weak. Supporting cast, especially Naveen Andrews, are fine.
