Citylights review from other sources

BollywoodHungama 3.5/5

On the whole, CITYLIGHTS is one of the most captivating movie experiences of late. An expertly-crafted heartbreaker, this tragic tale has a riveting plot, power-packed narrative, soulful music and arresting performances to haunt you much after the screening has concluded. A must watch!

To write about CityLights is difficult. It is one film that brings up so many thoughts that I rather shut up that write anything that does not do justice to the film. That's the impact Hansal Mehta's direction left on me. This film soaks you in, and refuses to leave you much after you have left the theater. The songs continue to haunt. Recommended must watch!

The Indian version of Sean Ellis Sundance sensation Metro Manila is named after the great Charles Chaplin's classic 'City Lights' featuring the years national award hall of fames director Hansal Mehta and actor Rajkummar Rao turns out to be just a pat on immigration realisms and unwanted smack on con thriller sensationalisms.. Ironically it reminds you what the genius Charles Chaplin once said "In the end, everything is a gag"..

As far as rating is concerned then movies like "Citylights" are beyond the purview of any rating, because it is next to impossible to gauge the emotional impact which they leave on viewers, but as it is customary, hence I am going ahead with three out of five for this masterpiece starring Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa.

CityLights isn’t a feel-good entertainer. It is a film that shocks, provokes and seeks to prick our collective complacency and apathy. That obviously adds up to infinitely more value than the price of a multiplex ticket.

The film doesn’t quite work to its full potential. You might want to sample it for the story, formidable performances and few arresting moments.

Citylights is just like the city of Mumbai. It beats you down and when you are broken, takes you in its arms and loves you.
