Noor (Aditya Roy Kapur), a young Shikara boy from Kashmir is a born artist who sketches and soon finds his perfect muse in Firdaus (Katrina Kaif) and falls in love with her.
On the other side, Firdaus’s mother Begum Hazrat (Tabu), who was a love failure, has a severe hatred on love. After knowing about her daughter’s love with Noor, she sends Firdaus to London and meanwhile, Noor emerges as an art sensation in Delhi.
It was then he has a rendezvous with Firdaus for the first time as adults and again falls in love. Did Begum accept their love and what are the attempts, the couple made in approaching her? These questions will answer the rest of the film.
As we already knew that, Fitoor is adopted from ‘Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations’, obviously audiences expect some twists in the story. But Fitoor could not live up to the expectations. The movie loses its pace in several places. The story is narrated slowly throughout the movie and at the end at exactly not required portion, the story launches a race.
The script has loopholes and one can identify it easily, if they follow, the films in Fitoor genre. Even then, Fitoor has good emotions and dialogues are well written. The climax completely puts the audience in dilemma, thinking that they really watching something at the end.
Aditya Roy Kapur is one of the major breathtaking aspect of Fitoor. His innocence and nervous instincts around Begum’s character, would be loved by many. Katrina Kaif as Firdaus is absolutely stunning. But she has nothing to do with acting, not even any memorable dialogues of her, regarding this Fitoor movie.
Tabu as Begum Hazrat is the key survival point of the film. She completely owns the character of a love failure and with her stupendous performance, one can relate her with a real life woman, who cried for decades.
Rahul Bhat as Firdaus’ fiancé, does a good job and Ajay Devgan’s cameo is another major plus of Fitoor. He surely steals the episode, he occupied on the screen. Aditi Rao Hydari and rest others did their assigned job comfortably.
The music of Fitoor is the soul of the film, ranking above other elements of the film. Editing has several flaws. Many scenes are dragged and at the required places, they are chopped off. The cinematography is another big plus to Fitoor and production values are rich. Director Abhishek Kapoor could not bring out the required feel in the subject he took, even though the casting is good.
Fitoor Final Word
Fitoor do not fall under the epic love stories like Aashiqui 2. It is more of cinematic and those who likes the emotions far from the reality, might connect to Fitoor well.
