Photograph is the much awaited next release from Ritesh Batra, and looks sprinkled with the same minimalistic charm of Batra that we have seen in his earlier films like The Lunchbox or Our Souls at Night amongst others. Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra ‘play strangers turned couple’ in the film, and seem perfectly cast as ordinary flesh and blood people we could actually meet on the streets. Batra had directed Nawaz brilliantly in their earlier outing together and we hope to see the magic returning. The film choices of Sanya is becoming interesting day by day and should take her along a long way ahead.
Photograph releases on March 15th in India and is a first major theatrical release of Amazon Studios for the region. The film has also been screened at Sundance and Berlinale film festivals to pretty good reviews. We cannot wait.
