Plot: A struggling jazz pianist falls for a struggling actress. Their relationship gets into a turmoil as they progress in their careers.

What’s good?

It’s a modern musical, a modern tale set in 1920s musical style. The sets are lavish and so is the dancing. Beautiful compositions and singing. Great actors to die for, it had everything perfect!

What’s not?

The first half of the film was pretty boring. The script went very slow and the characters were initially courting and then nothing much happened in the first half. But, the second half changed the pace and fate of the film completely especially the ending scene.

What to do?

It is a story about the eternal conflict of lovers and dreams; and it is beautiful! So, definitely worth a watch!
