Slow yet gripping .

"Photograph "was a painfully slow with an extremely impractical script.

One, somehow the detailings to the characters were incomplete and second, the movie was bit slow at a few places.

It is slow....

It is how the entire narrative is set up in this dull romantic drama that ends up making you dissatisfied.

The best part about the movie was that everything felt so real, and yet it was entertaining!

Slow paced movie which tells you a story about two characters from two different classes.

And thus, if you ask me if it's worth watching the film - I'd straightaway answer you with one big yes with a little warning of patience-management!

Silences and Empty Gestures Doesn't Make Movies .

Nothing new shown, don't waste your time behind it.

Waste of time .

The only flaw is maker choosed a slow paced narration where many people failed to connect other than that it was a brilliantly edited film without lagging the story.

So, is Photograph movie really slow?.........

It is a very tedious film to get through, with a weak payoff at the end.

Too long and slow.

A slow burning feel good .

Slow .

"Photograph" has an unexpected ending.

Will immerse you into this relationship despite their unparalleled social status, while wading through this slow yet peacefully gripping performance of Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

Why waste your time talking with the Taxi-driver, when there are so many ways to move the story forward.

Boring, waste of time .

The cinematography makes you feel as if you are going along for the ride as you spend time with the characters immersed in their lives, families and way of life.

The reason for 'Molini,' portrayed adorably by Sania, being so dull throughout was never really explained, in either artistic, metaphorical or practical way.

subtle but engaging and so well crafted .

While it lasts it is beautiful and engaging.

If you loved the unexpected warmth of Lunchbox, you should appreciate this modest masterpiece.

Their chance encounter leads to self-discovery and a fascinating tale of slow-burn romance.

No story.

This film is boring.

The reality of the world is, everyone just wants to move on, or it is by fear they are forced to, then whats wrong in this movie's slow and unpredictable story.

An intriguing movie, that keeps a viewer involved throughout making them guess about what's next.

Vijay Raaz, in an unpredictable role, is refreshing as ever.

Denying himself pleasure results in his slow death.

There are views and reviews in both positive and negative sense, that movie is slow.

To story of Photograph focuses on one such peculiar encounter that eventually translates into an unexpected connection.

Geetanjali Kulkarni is another cast member who acted like she was living the character of Miloni's household maid, which gives Batra another minor subplot to infuse the 'feel good' elements into his otherwise dreary feature.

I found it very acted out very naturally as if you were immersed in the lives of two lonely people who just happen to find each other by chance.

An artistic journey to an unexpected romance.. .

Spurts of this isolated engrossing moments punctuate a very monotonous and prolonged narrative

Boring .

Today she is a topper exhibit on giant billboards across the city with clipart crown on her head as bland and sanitised as her protected existence.


Monotonous, boring, stupid.

If you can stick with the slow pace and don't mind an incomplete ending, you'll walk away with an understanding that somethings/meetings happen for a reason.

No, this isn't a Hollywood blockbuster, but this is definitely worth watching, especially if you like a film with a lot of humanity and hope for love.

The two engage in an unexpected indulgence as if exploring their own existence in embracing the difference in each other's class, religion and living.

Those who are saying this movie was slow needs to understand these are kind of movies that are close to reality than every other one out there, there was also one named The Ship Of Thesis which is similar to this and will be labelled slow as I also labeled it slow but one day I decided to watch it and ou boy was I not surprised.

This is a slow-moving story, punctuated with long periods of silence, and staring into space.

There are subtitles, but they are easy to read and follow along, especially given the slower pace of this beautiful film.

Ritesh Batra have always kept his audience amazed with his mind blowing direction and superb climax.

Interesting movie slow paced culturally linked .

good movie but extreme slow .

Waste of time .

The film is engaging throughout.

Overall, Photograph is an enjoyable watch for the real cineholics and who love soft paced movies.

Waste of time.

In terms of plot, even if we ignore for a second the viability of the plot, one might still wonder why the pacing so slow?

No story.
