Director Ritesh Batra’s Photograph gets a thumbs up at special screenings


Directed by Ritesh Batra, Photograph which hits the screen this Friday has been garnering accolades from the critics even before the release of the film owing to its unconventional storyline.

After winning the hearts of the audience with Lunchbox, Ritesh Batra has now earned critical acclaim for the upcoming Photograph. Known for his soulful and unconventional stories, the director presents yet another beautifully constructed film with Photograph. Actors also shared their views on the movie. Heres what they shared

Lisa Ray had few words for the movie, she shared, ” So happy to see the exquisite and talented @sanyamalhotra07 at @MumbaiFilmFest, one of the leads at a screening of #Photographer, a wistful, slow burn homage to love and Mumbai by @riteshbatra. Beautiful, haunting work everyone.

Former costar Kubra Sait praised the movie saying, ”
Thank You @MumbaiFilmFest for #PhotographAtMAMI An endearing nugget of love. @sanyamalhotra07 & @Nawazuddin_S are outstanding, but the additional joy of seeing Vijay Raaz & Jim Sarbh and the friendlier than thou friends made me welcome into @riteshbatra ‘s world. 😁”

Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a photographer named Rafi at Gateway of India and Sanya Malhotra as a shy Miloni hailing from a reserved Gujarati family, Photograph offers strong performances that have pleased the critics.

The Director, as well as the lead actors, are not new to an exceptional response from the critics as Ritesh Batra gained acclaim for Lunchbox, Nawzuddin Siddiqui has been touted as one of the finest actors, and Sanya Malhotra has been receiving appreciation for her versatile performances

The trailer of Photograph opens with a tracking shot by the Gateway of India. Ritesh, a Bombay boy who moved to the United States for his higher studies, sounds thrilled about his (second) return to the city, seven years after his debut feature, The Lunchbox (2013).

Marking the second collaboration of Ritesh Batra and versatile performer Nawazuddin Siddiqui, along with the blockbuster Badhaai Ho star Sanya Malhotra, Photograph offers remarkable performances with an enticing yet simple storyline.

Written and directed by Ritesh Batra, Photograph is presented by Amazon Studious in association with The Match Factory and is slated to release in India on 15th March 2019.
