After a chance meeting, a street photographer and a wealthy tourist begin a will-they won’t-they romance. His indomitable, spirited grandmother adds a comedic touch as she wades in with the best of intentions. There are charming performances from all, with Mumbai itself another star, as the camera pulls us in close to the city’s busy life. This is another beautifully photographed slow burner from the director of 2013’s The Lunchbox.
Hindi with subtitles.
2019 | Dir Ritesh Batra | 110min | India | USA
★★★★ “Photograph is decidedly old-fashioned and the outcome is never in doubt but the craft is impeccable, the performances low-key and likeable plus there is something persuasive about Batra’s gentle worldview, his faith in people and love restorative” – Ian Freer, Empire
