Isn't perfect, but a skillfully made film that's easy on both eye and ear
IBN Live
Great Expectations, one of my favourite books, that has been adapted in Fitoor, left me wondering whether films should be obligated to conduct themselves responsibly when picking up such iconic literature.Like, not taking the revered literature and turning it into a gimmicky cinema that is visually entrancing but emotionally numb.The film starts in Kashmir, where we see a little boy Noor helping out a wanted man, a militant on the run. Then on, the other characters tumble out - the beauteous Est
So, Fitoor takes a multi-layered classic, dilutes its themes of imperialism and social hierarchies, and chooses instead to interpret it in a more Bollywood-esque manner.

I’m going with three out of five
Rajeev Masand
The director casts two attractive people where he ought have chosen a couple of actual actors instead, and thus it becomes hard to care about the protagonists or their sundered hearts, and despite aesthetic appeal, what we end up with is -- at best -- a screensaver
So on an overall basis, ‘Fitoor’ is stunningly mesmerizing in terms of its grandeur and cinematography. Sadly, films don’t work on these merits and out here the boring storytelling and weak screenplay ruins all your great expectations and ends up giving frozen results.
Cine Markets
Watch it for its beauty (cinematography by Anay Goswami), music (Amit Trivedi) and a few and far in between tender, touching moments
Go for it because there might not be too many better films than Fitoor this year.
Abhishek Kapoor’s adaptation of the ‘Great Expectations’ is intense but superficial.
It’s possibly the most pretentious love stories we’ve seen so far
Emirates 24X7
Director Abhishek Kapoor could've done a lot more with this film. The love story between his leads should have been a lot more intense. But in the end the film turns out to be a shallow affair.
What the Dickens? Katrina, Aditya Roy Kapur star in a beautiful but disappointing adaptation

Fitoor means obsession, is an great case of presenting Kashmir.
Galaxy Reporter
The problem with Fitoor is that it's a love story that is not romantically compelling
Kapoor’s adaptation begins with the story of Pip, Estella and Miss Havisham, but tapers into a narrative about unrequited love, complete with a Bollywood ending
Fitoor is this very finely shot, very bizarre breathy romance film which is saved by moments of true madness displayed by the brilliant Tabu.

The music and cinematography elevate an otherwise dull Fitoor.
'Fitoor', does not live up to the great expectations you have from the film
Santa Banta
The music of Fitoor is the soul of the film, ranking above other elements of the film. Editing has several flaws. Many scenes are dragged and at the required places, they are chopped off. The cinematography is another big plus to Fitoor and production values are rich. Director Abhishek Kapoor could not bring out the required feel in the subject he took, even though the casting is good.
Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
To play with a great quote, oh what a tangled web we weave, when we learn to retrieve - in this case, retrieving a classic indeed caused a tangle, albeit one of Pashmina dhaagas.
Times of India
Fitoor is a film that looks magical, has impressive performances, yet lacks ‘wow’ factor. This love story is not everyone’s cup of tea and hence those with artsy tastes may like it.
Koi Moi
Except for some well shot songs and Tabu’s performance, Fitoor is a waste of your precious time and money. Do not invest anything on it and pick some else this weekend.
To sum up, despite being far from perfect, Fitoor springs quite the surprise

Watch Fitoor for its soulful music and stunning cinematography, based in Kashmir

This adaptation of Great Expectations is visually stunning, but if you are looking for an intense love story, you are barking up the wrong chinar tree

Fitoor is a great film with its unmistakable technical aspects but missed the chance of becoming one of the greatest films because of the lead cast
'Fitoor', wants desperately to be a grand, epic romance but depends way too much on its stunning Kashmir canvas to achieve that

The Reporter Times
On the whole, FITOOR is a huge letdown despite its great visuals, as it fails to connect emotionally. At the Box-Office, the movie will appeal only to a minuscule set of multiplex audience.
Bollywood Hungama
Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapur’s film falls short of our Great Expectations!

‘Fitoor’ did start nicely; presenting subjects like the social pyramid in Kashmir, but it weakens towards the middle, going overboard with gloom

I Really Wanted to Like Fitoor
Besides, the film has great melodies.
Abhishek Kapoor’s adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic has a deeply miscast lead pair.

Tabu’s Begum is a world of her own, often hard to fathom but she holds the viewer in her grasp and Fitoor eventually turns out to be her film than that of Noor or Firdaus
The Hindu
Watch, if you have nothing better to do
Desi Martini
Loosely infusing themes of terrorism and cross-border aman, along with this (largely) one-sided love story, he's mostly accountable for reducing a classic to a sappy tale that induces sniffles, but only when you check how much you paid for the ticket
Bangalore Mirror
What would you expect a Bollywood hero to do? Confess love and deliver some high-octane dramatic dialogues? That’s not what you get in Abhishek Kapoor’s Fitoor.
