An atmospheric tragedy set in the sordid world of Bombay's exploitation-film industry during the late 1980s.
Though not pretentious, [the] film feels a tad overthought, held back somehow by a stubborn, dour obscurity clouding its freshly realized, lurid milieu.
"Miss Lovely" does exude an air of authenticity... But much of the film remains underdeveloped.
The "Miss Lovely" script's a set of pulpy contrivances padded out for thematic oomph, but director Ashim Ahluwalia has serious visual flair, and that keeps you watching.
Florid direction, lurid atmosphere, and reckless passions all contribute to the intoxicating deliriousness of Miss Lovely, a thriller set in 1980s India's B-movie industry.
What it is exactly is a little uncertain, given the film's curiously sluggish pace for a retro-thriller and discouragingly murky camerawork that makes action sequences, especially, hard to follow.
An indictment of exploitation while at the same time reveling in it, ... a paean to analog movie-making in a time when the world is going digital.
An idiosyncratically self-reflexive piece of cinematic art.
The film is mesmerising for the first hour or so.
Elliptical, authentic, and with a strong palate of visual flair, Miss Lovely can be a confusing concoction at times, but it is never boring.
For the price of a cheap pleasure like a movie, Miss Lovely is worth every penny.
[Miss Lovely] isn't always appetizing, but Ahluwalia's commitment to accurately capturing the era's aesthetic almost compensates for his failure to mine a good story from a great setting.
