Directed by Ritesh Batra, 2019, India, Rated PG-13, 110 min., Subtitled
Photograph, the wistful and funny new film from writer/director Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox), tells the tale of a struggling Mumbai street photographer who, pressured to marry by his grandmother, convinces a shy stranger to pose as his fiancée during a family visit. Rafi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) comes to Mumbai from a small village to earn money to pay off an old family debt. Working as a street photographer, he shares one small room with friends and sends almost everything he makes to his grandmother, Dadi (Farrukh Jaffar), in the hope she will be able to buy back her ancestral home. To satisfy the elderly woman’s desire, he sends her a photo of the strange woman he has met, claiming that the girl, Miloni (Sanya Malhotra), is his fiancée. When his grandmother insists on a meeting, things get complicated.
