'Noor' Movie Review: You'll Love Sonakshi Sinha In Her Career-defining Performance

It has both entertainment and food for thought!


Noor a drama film based on a Pakistani novel titled ‘Karachi, You're Killing Me!’ by Saba Imtiaz, stars Sonakshi Sinha in the title role. As oppose to the novel that follows the life of a female Pakistani journalist living in a volatile city like Karachi, the film is set in Mumbai and revolves around a smart but out-of-luck journalist named Noor Roy Chaudhary who is tired of her failures and missed opportunities, both on the professional and personal front.

Although Noor has the rare ability of smelling sensational stories, she gets little support from her boss. The only thing that frustrates Noor more than her boss is her love life which is rife with misadventures. Noor is like a breath of fresh air and anyone who watches it will remember it long after the end credits stop rolling. Here is a film that succeeds in achieving a balance between entertainment and food for thought without trying too hard.

So, without much ado, let’s discuss the various factors that make Noor stand apart amidst a myriad of run-of-the-mill films that Bollywood keeps on churning.
