Poorna - Top Reviews

Poorna is the story of Poorna Malavath, who at 13 years became the youngest girl to climb Mount Everest. Although the story is inspiring, the telling of the tale is tedious.

Asked why he wished to climb the Everest, mountaineer George Mallory famously said, "Because it's there!" Well. That's a good enough reason to watch this film too.

Poorna - All Reviews

The treatment of the subject is what makes this film click. The way each character is portrayed is superb. Special mention to the nitty-gritty of Priya and Poorna, their camaraderie and their bond, which is marvelously conveyed. The film transforms the gritty realities of the little girl and her life into a celebration of determination without sinking into mushy sentiments.

Grounded performances combined with stirring music elevate this relatively straightforward tale, making it essential viewing not only for the young Indian woman, but for anyone looking to scale great heights against all odds.

Scaling impossible heights with grace
At best, Poorna should have been a short film that tells us an inspiring story. Not a must-watch as a feature film.
