Critics Consensus

Photograph enriches the familiar arc of its love story by refreshingly refracting its characters' budding bond through a sociocultural prism.

  • Like Polaroids and introverted people, Photograph takes its time developing.

  • This too-languidly-paced film lacks the emotional payoff of The Lunchbox, and rising newcomer Malhotra is not yet in Siddiqui's league.

  • "Photograph" has a ways to go to sell its central love story. But Batra's touch is so tender that "Photograph" builds a sweetness that overcompensates for its shortcomings.

  • There's a good deal of heart, art, sympathy, and substance here, which is why's it's all the more frustrating that "Photograph" fails to develop.

  • It may be that the stories in movies are all the same. But it can be lovely when a movie like this one finds a different way to tell them.

  • It's a movie that takes its own sweet time getting to a conclusion that will surprise no one, but it has a stillness, an evocativeness, that expresses far more than its rather paltry plot.
