Photograph Movie Review:
Photograph, is a meditative movie on a relationship which is really hard to define in words. Miloni and Rafi share a bond despite being so very different in all aspects be it class, education, religions, social gatherings, skin colour and what not. Miloni is an attractive intelligent girl from a Gujurati middle-class family while Rafi is an uneducated Muslim guy who does photography at Gateway Of India in Mumbai to make his living. Miloni turns her name Noori for Rafi in order to convince his grandmother and make it their relationship look realistic. They later eventually discover that the two have many things in common despite so many differences. Siddiqui proves this time again that he the master of his craft as his presence will keep you hooked and look convincing. Sanya, on the other hand, plays the part of an introvert character to utmost perfection. The movie shows the essence of Mumbai city in the most beautiful way. The slow pace of the movie might not attract fast pace audiences. Watch the movie to grope the tenderness that Miloni and Rafi shared while being with each other.
