A struggling street photographer, pressured to marry by his grandmother, convinces a shy stranger to pose as his fiancée. The pair develops a connection that transforms them in ways that they could not expect.
"This bland, sombre love story from the director of The Lunchbox (2013) lacks that film’s flavour. Rafi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) is a struggling street photographer at Mumbai’s Gateway of India monument whose grandmother Dadi (an extremely lively Farrukh Jaffar) is refusing to take her medicine until he find himself a bride."
"Ritesh Batra stole the hearts of moviegoers the world over with his gentle romance The Lunchbox in 2013, and after some uncertain English-language movies he has returned to India with this odd, enigmatic high-concept love story set in Mumbai. Photograph has some beautifully shot moments, and Batra sometimes captures the city with something approaching the rapture with which Wong Kar-wai captures Hong Kong."
"A man and woman from different walks of life share a brief, awkward encounter. They meet again sometime later, thanks in part to happenstance (and also, the man’s persistence)."
