When Bollywood and your friends' social media accounts are constantly trying to feed you cliched version of love and relationships in modern times, there comes another side to the emotion presented to us in the coming together of two very unusual lovers in the movie 'Photograph'. View this post on Instagram It's a very special feeling for me and team #Photograph & @amazonstudios as our film is been officially selected to be screened at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival, 2019 Thank You @riteshbatra for making this possible and congratulations @sanyamalhotra_ A post shared by Nawazuddin Siddiqui (@nawazuddin._siddiqui) on Nov 30, 2018 at 2:21am PST Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra as the leading 'jodi' in this film, 'Photograph' hit the theatres earlier today amidst a lack of fervour and hype that generally follows the release of a Bollywood romantic film. The reason might lay in the atypicality of the love story that 'Photograph' stands for. The film traces the journey of two strangers - Mumbai-based street photographer Rafiq (Nawazuddin) and accountancy student Miloni (Sanya) - and how they come together to smoothen out the ruffled feathers in each other's lives, forming a special bond along the way.

A post shared by Sanya Malhotrað¥ (@sanyamalhotra_) on Jan 25, 2019 at 9:06am PST Now, even though Twitter has shown close to no interest in the film whatsoever, some earnest movie-goers have given this movie a chance, and from what we have gathered from the Twitter reviews so far, it seems that while the audience has loved the director's vision, the execution hasn't been followed through. Moreover, people aren't convinced about the leading pair's chemistry and seem disappointed with the half-baked character sketches that surface in the film. View this post on Instagram Super Excited to inform you all that after being officially selected at the prestigious #SundanceFilmFestival2019 my film #photograph will also be screened at the #berlinale2019 Thank You @riteshbatra for doing this wonder & @sanyamalhotra_ for being a wonderful part of this. A post shared by Nawazuddin Siddiqui (@nawazuddin._siddiqui) on Jan 17, 2019 at 11:13pm PST While we are all for unusual love stories and happy endings, there is something to be said about poor delivery and going by the audience's words, 'Photograph' doesn't seem to be making the cut this time. Here is what Twitter is saying about the film: #Photograph is an amazing experience. I felt it, can't really explain. It lingers when it's done. @riteshbatra certainly knows to hit the right cord. @Nawazuddin_S is phenomenal as always. But I could actually feel @sanyamalhotra07's character, very relatable. #PhotographReview. — Anwesh Panda (@anwesh_panda) March 15, 2019 Photograph (U/A) Runtime - 110 Minutes Rating - ð ð ð ð 1/2 Review - A very well crafted film. Acting - Nawaz is fantastic What's good - Screenplay,Direction What's bad - No chemistry between the leads — Cinema200 (@cinema200) March 15, 2019 Ritesh Batra has a knack for making his actors forget about the camera. Nothing ever seems filmed. Or designed. My #Photograph Review: A delicate little gem https://t.co/v0SK78gI6n pic.twitter.com/70gFbRf4yO — Sukanya Verma (@SukanyaVerma) March 15, 2019 Watched #Photograph, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra. Longing, nostalgia and a rather unique take on love, this film speaks most in its silences. But it's not everyone's cup of tea. Here's my review.https://t.co/nktV200UjD pic.twitter.com/ddZMos3Hbm — Lakshana Palat (@lakshanapalat) March 15, 2019 Photograph Review: Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra starrer is slow paced, ambiguous and melancholic — Bizma Gul (@BismaaGul) March 14, 2019
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsLife often gets caught up in the twisted ways of fate and often ends up as a morning read on tabloids and if nothing else, eventually turns into biographies or if you're lucky, maybe even into a biopic. Bollywood is filled with tales of people who shot to fame and have attained heights of stardom, however, on the flip side, there are the stories of those who are on the path to their redemption. © Instagram Tracing their journey from the heights of stardom to the forgotten chambers of their after years, the audience often looks past the many layers that go into the making of a star and for that matter, even into the unravelling of the picture perfect plot of their lives. The Atypical Star Kid Bollywood is filled with young actors walking in and out, unable to return from their bout with failure, however, here we have a man, who is on his path to redemption and his tale holds promise. Such has been the journey of Prateik Babbar who was born to star parents Smita Patil and Raj Babbar in 1986 and well, if we may say so, the guy didn't have the most perfect start to his life. © Instagram Prateik lost his mother soon after his birth and was brought up by his maternal grandparents, Shivajirao Patil and Vidyatai Patil, along with his aunt Manya Patil. Raj Babbar, who went back to living with his first wife and kids, took a backseat as a father-figure throughout Prateik's childhood. © Instagram It's common knowledge that Prateik always shared a rocky relationship with his father and he even dropped his surname, making it pretty clear. It was during this time, that he also began his unfortunate tryst with substance abuse. However, after his grandparents passed away, he came to the realisation that he needed to get his affairs in order and began doing that by reconciling with his father. The Rising Star © Instagram Prateik made his Bollywood debut in a supporting role in 2008's romcom 'Jaane Tu, Ya Jaane Na', much against his father's wishes, who wanted him to wait until he turned 25 to start acting. His performance was well-received and he ended up winning awards by both Filmfare and Stardust for his performance and he soon became the 'guy to watch out for' who was a natural in front of the camera. He gave some more memorable performances in a number of commercial and critically acclaimed movies such as 'Dhobi Ghat', 'Aarakshan', 'My Friend Pinto', 'Dum Maro Dum' and the likes. Love-Hate Tryst With Narcotics © Instagram After a short run in the industry, his subsequent films began to bomb at the box office which pushed him to find solace in his old ways of depending heavily on drugs and alcohol. Prateik's first brush with marijuana happened at the age of 14 which gradually escalated to mood-changers over the years, while ganja became a constant. © Instagram Having had an on-and-off affair with drugs and alcohol for most of his life, 2013 found Prateik amidst a fresh battle with substance abuse which meant a detour to the rehab and rounds of counselling. He has since been sober and eventually made a comeback in 2015 with a comedy-drama 'Umrika' which was followed by a Bengali film 'Auroni Taukhon' in 2017. Prateik has been very vocal about his struggle with drugs and believes that admitting about it helps in moving forward and even aids the process of de-addiction. He recently starred in a video titled #DilSeAzaad and used it to voice his stance on how the society needs to stop boycotting those who are struggling with addiction. The video's goal was also to help debunk stereotypes by recognising them with their challenges, and help the affected people in healing and finding their way back to the mainstream society. Take Two: Rising From The Ashes Cut to 2018 and the man has already starred in two successful movies, 'Baaghi 2', in which he played the antagonist to Tiger Shroff's character and in 'Mulk', where he portrayed the role of a terrorist. Both the movies have added significantly to his career graph and have displayed the skills and versatility he possesses as an actor. © Instagram Not only that, just yesterday the entire film and fashion industry was taken aback by his charms at Chola The Label's 'Bye Felicia' show at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai. Decked up in a drag queen avatar, presenting the yin and yang inherent in every individual, he also walked the ramp to highlight gender fluidity and acceptance. © Instagram Sporting an edgy outfit, complete with flashy makeup and glitzy accessories, he added a LOT of drama to the show! The world saw another side of him which was quite a sight. Counting His Blessings We believe the actor has come a long way, both personally and professionally, and we cannot just overlook his efforts to put the troublesome phase of his life behind him. Prateik plans to focus on his future as an actor, and as for his personal life, he is engaged to be married to his Lucknowi sweetheart Sanya Sagar. missin' on my boss! @pynkmoss âï¸ð A post shared by prateik babbar (@_prat) on Apr 4, 2018 at 5:10am PDT It's great to see him moving forward and living the good life after such a roller-coaster ride. Prateik's story comes across with the promise of hope for every individual who's struggling in his life, by showing us that there indeed is light at the end of the tunnel.
