‘Fitoor’ did not meet our expectations! From a director of ‘Kai Po Che’ and ‘Rock On’, the movie is not at all appealing! Despite of having lead actors like Aditya Roy Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, ‘Fitoor is bif bif disappointment! The makers of the film have focused on every minute detail of the visuals in the movie; however one wonders why they didn't do the same level of detailing in the screenplay. There are many scenes in the film that do no good to the film, but only land up confusing the viewers. It is based on teh novel, ‘Great Expectations’ but it has letdown our expectations!

Katrina Kaif, Aditya Roy Kapur and Tabu's Fitoor is devastatingly beautiful, thanks to director Abhishek Kapoor's portrayal of Kashmir in it. However, underneath all the surreal beauty, this adaptation of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations falls short of fulfilling the great expectations people had from it. At the end of the day, Fitoor demands a lot of patience on the part of the viewer. But that is largely made up for by Kashmir. Watch the film for its sheer beauty.

Katrina Kaif starrer spares no one, not Kashmir, not Delhi, not London, not Kashmiris, and not even poor Pakistan, which somehow finds its way into this tale essentially about love traversing social divides. Meanwhile, having decided that in a film where all of Aditya Roy Kapoor’s hair is bunched upon his head and all of Katrina’s is plunged in a Chinar-esque red, in the hope perhaps that you don’t notice their blank faces below, Tabu takes it upon herself to act for the entire film. Her overladen, overdressed, overwrought Begum has done a hop, skip and jump (should that even be possible) from Haider and Vishal Bhardwaj to Fitoor and Abhishek Kapoor. There’s that other quote from Charles Dickens, actually from Great Expectations: Ask me no questions, and you will be told no lies.

A visual tour de force, Abhishek Kapoor’s exquisitely crafted Fitoor holds on to the soul of Great Expectations and imbues it with the spirit of Bollywood without letting the essence of one dilute that of the other. But that is not to say that Fitoor is an unblemished miracle. It isn’t. Fitoor ticks the first two boxes emphatically. It is packaged brilliantly. It also has epic sweep. But in respect of context, it falls well shy of perfection. There is so much to admire in Fitoor that it is easy not to be put off by its ponderous pace and lack of contextual detailing. Go for it because there might not be too many better films than Fitoor this year.

Fitoor, based on Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, meets some expectations - but not all. Fitoor's acting pleases in parts. The film also looks gorgeous - but opulence takes over substance, chinars, minars and lace dominating grip, passion and pace. For a love story, Fitoor lacks heat - you wish there was less hair-styling and more hair-pulling, more rupture and less cheesecake-like smoothness.
