Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sanya Malhotra's film is an outstanding love letter to the city of dreams.

Photograph reminds us to believe in minor magic. Here is a film about a city that makes room for everything, from formula...(more)

Nawazuddin Siddiqui Is Utterly Believable In Evocative Romantic Tale
Rafi tells his customers that it is the sunlight in the Photographs that they will remember long after their visit to the tourist spot. That is true of this film as well. The languid grace and unswerving geniality inherent in the making stand out. They enhance the radiance of the overall cinematic c...(more)
