Aditya Roy Kapur and Katrina Kaif's Bollywood movie "Fitoor," which was released just ahead of Valentine's Day for love birds, has received mixed review from the audience around the world.
"Fitoor" is a romantic drama film, which is inspired by Charles Dickens' novel "Great Expectations." The story of the movie revolves around three characters -- young Kashmiri boy Noor, his muse Firdaus, and Begum. It is a journey through love lost and realised over the course of two generations. Abhishek Kapoor has penned the screenplay for the movie in collaboration with Supratik Sen.
Noor is an impressionable boy, who is lured by a wealthy woman named Begum. Noor falls in love with Begum's daughter Firdaus. The heart broken Begum finds her mark in Noor. As time passes, Noor leaves his hometown to build his career in Delhi. He strives to be part of the sophisticated social circle of Firdaus. How Begum plots retribution on their young and innocent love forms the rest of the story.
"Fitoor" has a beautiful love story, which the audience describe as a visual poetry. Aditya Roy Kapur, Katrina Kaif and Tabu have delivered stellar performances, which are the highlights of the film. Produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur, the movie has fantastic production elements and music, and cinematography is a big attraction on the technical front, say the viewers.
The slow and dragging narration is the biggest drawback and trimming certain scenes could have been made it a classic. The movie is a good treat before this Valentine's Day, several film goers added. After watching the film, many viewers shared their verdict on their Twitter handles. We bring you some unique comments. Here is the live update of "Fitoor" movie review by audience:

It's Intermission - J'adore you #Fitoor It's a task to tell a story told by the 19th century storyteller & make it relevant in the 21st century. Art & Poetry comes alive in #Fitoor #KatrinaKaif is intimidating, alluring & endearing in #Fitoor - I've started to have a 'thing' for women with red hair. Flawless!

Wonderful starting credits... Everything calm, serene and mesmerizing just like Kashmir #Fitoor @utvfilms @GuyInTheSkyPics Grace, Intensity and Magic...Tabu is unmatchable #Fitoor Young Firdaus and Noor are outstanding and have set a great base for the lead to take it forward...
Half way through #Fitoor. The cinematography is breathtaking. The chemistry between Aditya & Katrina is to watch out for @DMmovies @utvfilms The suspense around #Tabu's character seems to be an integral part of #Fitoor. Complicated but intriguing. @utvfilms @DMmovies The child actors playing Noor and Firdaus are exceptionally brilliant. One of the best parts of the film @utvfilms @DMmovies @FitoorTheMovie

Watched #fitoor. Good looking couple and excellent camera fails to save movie from drowning. Much ado about nothing . Script disappoints.

#Fitoor #Interval. LOVING IT SO FAR! Its just a LITTLE slow. But I cant wait for the big twist, having read Great Expectations. Abhishek Kapoor entwines Kashmir, the color Red, love and longing so beautifully. A visual delight of there was one. #Fitoor #Interval Aditya Roy Kapoor as the 23 year old Noor is innocent, raw, and so, SO endearing. I would give up ANYTHING for this man. #Fitoor #Interval Katrina Kaif as Firdaus looks like Kashmir came to life and became a beautiful woman. So convincing, so ethereal. #Fitoor #Interval And Tabu, Tabu, OMG Tabu. Her Begum/Miss Havisham is exactly what I imagined it to be, except better. Sad, heart broken, repulsive. #Fitoor

Only hero, as far as I'm concerned. Stellar work. Between his chiselled body and her awful diction lay a promising film that never quite materialised. My review of #Fitoor out later today.
