Director Ritesh Batra has displayed a knack for creating off-beat love stories about characters who don’t have a chance of romancing each other. However, through some expert storytelling in ‘The Lunchbox’ and ‘Our Souls at Night’, he has managed to convince us that people can find intimacy in hopeless places. His latest feature, ‘Photograph’, delves deeper into that topic with Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra at the helm.
Audiences and critics have lauded ‘Photograph’ for its portrayal of an unconventional romance and have heaped praises on Nawazuddin and Sanya for their performances.

'#Photograph' speaks to those who understand the language of endless possibilities. Amid its eagerness to not impress, the film focuses more on the fluid chemistry that its characters generate. https://t.co/hhwslwPrd0

#Photograph is what happens when a simple four line story meets excellent direction. The film goes nowhere yet touches heart at times. Nawaz is excellent, so is Sanya. Theme music plays throughout the movie, I can still hear it. But deserves 3 out of 5.

#Photograph is an amazing experience. I felt it, can’t really explain. It lingers when it’s done. @riteshbatra certainly knows to hit the right cord. @Nawazuddin_S is phenomenal as always. But I could actually feel @sanyamalhotra07’s character, very relatable. #PhotographReview.

.The pace is romantically slow , dreamy enough to make you smile throughout. It transforms you to a world where love transcends beyond the class differentiation, idealistically reminds you that there is joy in that simple life and money cannot buy “real love”. #Photograph

Ritesh Batra has a knack for making his actors forget about the camera. Nothing ever seems filmed. Or designed. My #Photograph Review: A delicate little gem https://t.co/v0SK78gI6n pic.twitter.com/70gFbRf4yO

"Hindi film music plays a supporting character in Ritesh Batra’s #Photograph, which is a tentative love story (if it can be called that)."

Time and again, Nawazuddin has proven that he is one of the most prolific actors working in the industry. And in a short span of time, Sanya Malhotra has showcased her versatility with movies like ‘Dangal’, ‘Pataakha’ and ‘Badhaai Ho’. So, it’ll definitely be interesting to see them together in ‘Photograph’.
Have these tweet reviews convinced you to buy a ticket for ‘Photograph’?
