Movie Review: Noor (2017)

Box Office: Flop

Noor-2017-sonakshi-sunny-movie-posterNoor Roy Chaudhary (Sonakshi Sinha) is a 28 year-old junior correspondent with a news agency that is headed by editor Shekhar Das (Manish Choudhary). While Noor is an aspiring ‘Barkha'(Dutt gets chopped by Censor board), she’s unhappy covering local stories that have no substance whatsoever.

In her personal life, she has two best friends, Zara Patel (Shibani Dandekar), a DJ and Saad ( Kannan Gill). The lead character is single and in search of her dream man. In a chance meeting, she stumbles across Ayananka Bannerjee (Purab Kohli) who is an ex-war reporter. The duo start hanging out and Noor falls for the salt-n-pepper sweet talker.

Noor’s house help, Malti (Smita Tambe) unknowingly divulges some shocking details to Noor about her brother’s ill-health. Thanks to Noor’s nose for news, she finds her big story there.

Just when Noor’s journalistic career is about to flourish, heartbreak, betrayal and threat calls pull her down and she is forced to take a break from work.

Will Noor bounce back and finally find the perfect piece of news is what lies ahead !
