“Photograph makes an impression.” – Wendy Shreve, Featuring Film

“The film plays around with cinematic traditions, supplying a clever little twist to the rom-com formula.” – Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall

“Patient viewers who enjoy deeply felt films that take their sweet (in a good way) time to tell a small, human and relatable story should find writer-director Ritesh Batra’s Mumbai-set romance “Photograph” a lovely, charming and gently transporting journey.” – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times



Two lives intersect in Mumbai and go along together. A struggling street photographer, pressured to marry by his grandmother, convinces a shy stranger to pose as his fiancée. Despite vast cultural differences, the pair develops a surprising connection in ways that they could not expect and challenges their worldviews in this wistful and funny romance. Featuring some of Indian cinema’s most popular actors, Photograph is a heartwarming and comical snapshot of life in contemporary Mumbai.
