Fitoor Reviews by Critics :
Aditya Roy Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer Fitoor has received mixed reviews. Most of the critics have praised the cinematography. We will add more reviews on this page shortly. Lets’s take a look at Fitoor reviews and rating by top critics.
Fitoor could not live up to its "Great Expectations". But it is a once time watch for its stunning visuals.
Shot beautifully, Fitoor does appeal to you. Anay Goswami's lens captures Kashmir beautifully. Fitoor means obsession. And the lead pair transforms that obsession so beautifully on the big screen: the obsession with well-toned bodies, coloured hair, fancy clothes and shoes. I mean so what if we can’t feel their pain, their agony, their joys, so what if it’s a pretentious love story, at least their abs are real.
Katrina Kaif, Aditya Roy Kapur and Tabu's Fitoor is devastatingly beautiful, thanks to director Abhishek Kapoor's portrayal of Kashmir in it. However, underneath all the surreal beauty, this adaptation of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations falls short of fulfilling the great expectations people had from it.
Despite Katrina and Aditya's great performances, story isn't romantically compelling. It's Valentine’s Week and if you are in the mood for a complex love story, check this one out.
Fitoor stands in a shaky space, wobbling between being average and brilliant. There are moments that will blow your mind – the passion is enlivening. You want to invest in the characters, get sucked into the extravagant world of enchanting valleys and the stories that inhabit its nook and corners, alleys and bylanes…with the Persian lyrics of Haminastu in Zeb’s earthy voice echoing in your ears… Sadly, the only love story you would want to celebrate in Fitoor is the director and cinematographer’s love for ethereal beauty of Kashmir and Amit Trivedi’s undying romance with melody. The rest of it is prosaic.
Fitoor is a film that looks magical, has impressive performances, yet lacks ‘wow’ factor. This love story is not everyone’s cup of tea and hence those with artsy tastes may like it. I am going with a 2.5/5 for the film.
There is so much to admire in Fitoor that it is easy not to be put off by its ponderous pace and lack of contextual detailing. Go for it because there might not be too many better films than Fitoor this year.
All of Aditya Roy Kapoor’s hair is bunched upon his head and all of Katrina Kaif’s is plunged in a Chinar-esque red, in the hope perhaps that you don’t notice their blank faces below.
