The story of Fitoor revolves around Noor and Firdaus. They are attracted to each other but separated. When they meet again, Firdaus is engaged and her mother Begum Hazrat tries to retribute Noor for his stint with her daughter. What happens next forms the crux of the movie.

Fitoor is a visual treat and is as appealing as it can be. You will probably run out of adjectives to describe the perfectly captured frames in the venture. The landscapes are mesmerizing and the surreal frames have managed to capture the iconic beauty of Kashmir. Given that the movie is an adaptation of the classic Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, it takes a back seat when it comes to adaptation. The characters could have been made more detailed and less shady.

The first half limps on to prove the fact that the leads do not make an interesting couple whereas the second half gradually comes up to speed. Tabu's regal screen performance is the highlight of the venture. She oozes energy into the frames and has delivered a spectacular performance.

Amit Trivedi's music and Anay Goswami's cinematography are the pillars of the movie. Both Katrina and Aditya Roy Kapoor have done justice to their roles but the lack of chemistry between them is overwhelming.

With Aditya's hunky avatar and Katrina's slender makeover, one would expect the screen to crack with passion but even the magnetism between these characters is questionable in places. Kat's chipped emotions and casual stride seem out of place in some sequences.

Though Abhishek Kapoor has crafted the movie eloquently and given high preference to detailing, the story has lost its flavour in screenplay. If the first half was whipped up punchy with a dose of passion the recipe would have been unstoppable. All in all, the movie is highly eccentric and demands tying of loose ends.

Verdict: It's a good watch if you hop in without expectations!
( 2.5 / 5.0 )
