Fitoor Movie Review

The first half of Fitoor has been decent but not completely impressive. Though the audience get delighted with the visuals and poetic narration, the pace has been dead slow. The songs have been shot well and they have been placed right. The pre interval episodes have been shot well and they bring up the interest but the complete first half has been just ok.

The second half of the movie falls badly in every frame. The movie dips down and gets killed because of the narration. The plot has been sidelined completely and the director surprised the audience as he failed to bring out the needed elements in the movie. On the whole the complete second half is a debacle.


Aditya Roy Kapoor has been tremendous with his presence and performance in the film. Though he has been energetic and active, he carried the painful character during the second half with ease. Tabu killed and dominated everyone as Begum in the movie and she has been terrific on screen. All the other actors have been decent with their outings in the movie. 

The basic plot of Fitoor has been taken from the novel of Charles Dickens named Great Expectations. The screenplay and the dialogues have been ok. But Abhishek Kapoor who impressed with his narration skills failed completely in entertaining the audience. The music and the background score have been decent. The cinematography takes the film to the next level and every frame has been captured well. The editing has been crisp and the production values looked grand. 

Final Word

Fitoor is a huge let down because of the slow pace and bad narration. Though the performances impress the audience, Fitoor ends up disappointed.
