Movie Info

Noor (Sonakshi Sinha) is impatient, intelligent, impetuous and on the hunt for love in a city that is frustrating but also her addiction. She and her two best friends, Saad a young entrepreneurial restaurateur, who shuttles between London and Mumbai, and Zaara a with-it Parsi who plays DJ gigs at various nightclubs in the city, form the core of a coming-of-age story set in Mumbai, the ever-changing metropolis that is home to more than 21 million people. Noor lives with her father and an absentee maid, Malti. She works at the Daily News, a local TV Channel, where she is relegated to covering socialite events, bakery openings and other banal fodder. Frustrated, with her job and her life in general, she is on the lookout for meaning. Be it in the form of an intelligent and handsome man, or a story that has some depth and substance. In search of a story, Noor is genuinely faced with a challenge of righting a wrong and doing her best to fix a situation that she has placed herself in.But does she have the courage to stand by her words? The film captures her journey, her relationships, her friendships, her choices and many dilemmas as she comes of age, and develops a fresh perspective on life, her city and her best friend Saad, proving that sometimes everything you are looking for in life, may very well be sitting right before you!

Tell us something about Mumbai we don't know already. And do tell us something about journalism we actually know.

Feb 5, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

While she keeps harping about the importance of research in journalism, very little thought seems to have gone into painting an accurate picture of the media...but it shouldn't be deal breaker, because this film is backed by good, earnest performances.

There's an instant connect with Noor's world; her friends are as silly as yours, her issues are at times frivolous but her quarter-life crisis seems credible.

Mar 27, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

For the casual viewer, Noor serves up a refreshing new story. One that has a solid heart of gold.

Oct 27, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The film careens from one fake crisis to the other.

May 23, 2017 | Full Review…

While these anecdotes could have made for a hilarious, light-hearted movie, the misunderstanding of the profession in the film is appalling.
