    Overall, ‘The Great Gatsby’ gives you every reason to rejoice and celebrate love. Despite the story of a doomed love and a brooding lover, Baz Luhrmann brings in much more to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic.

    …Gatsby is greedily gorgeous and occasionally sags, luxuriating in a 3D-theatric too many. Still, it showcases Fitzgerald’s drama with flair – a society dancing on a knife’s edge, where everyone drank and romanced too much, but you also heard an odd, wistful sigh – maar daala.

    Overall, the film carries with it all the style of its director and cast. However, what made the story so popular and loved, was not the dazzle but its heart. That is where this film falls short.

    ODD times and an odd director one would think to adapt what is routinely described as the greatest of American novels. And then again maybe not. Wealth is a bad word these days, and yet being wealthy anyhow isn't, and Luhrmann could be expected to hold nothing back bringing his known excessiveness to this story about the superficiality and attraction of it. Starting with the 3D -- a pointless excess -- Luhrmann lives up the roaring 20s, leaving your head spinning

    The best way to enjoy Baz Luhrmann’s big and noisy new version of The Great Gatsby – and despite what you may have heard, it is an eminently enjoyable movie – is to put aside whatever literary agenda you are tempted to bring with you. I grant that this is not so easily done. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s slender, charming third novel has accumulated a heavier burden of cultural significance than it can easily bear. Short and accessible enough to be consumed

    You can never fault Baz Luhrmann on style. His cinema may work (Moulin Rouge) or fail to work (Australia), the mood could be of joy or sorrow, but each frame is invariably a toast to life, served with flair. F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is a novel that automatically lent itself to style, revelling as the story does in the dazzle of 1920s America with its unabashed hedonism and moral decay. Luhrmann on cue has crafted his most resplendent film

    Warner Brothers and the celebrated Baz Luhrmann no doubt get ambitious in turning jazzy, flashy and glittering in their adaptation of the Fitzgerald novel (fourth one in hollywood movie history) which is drop dead spectacular in vision which intoxicates your mind but fails to take your breath away as the heart doesn,t pound to the level as Luhrmann's over enthusiasm to please his dazzling 'broadband' fanaticisms ends up in stealing

    Luhrmann, who also co-wrote the screenplay, stuns you — and not in a nice way — with this introduction to Gatsby’s world and with later how Gatsby makes an appearance himself.

    In a weird sort of way, The Great Gatsby is to America what Devdas is to Indians. Deep down, they are both shallow books, which is one of the reasons they make for great tent-pole entertainment.

    If it wasn't a motion picture, then The Great Gatsby would have been a wonderful music video. It would perhaps even pick up the moon man at the prestigious MTV Video Music Awards. Luhrmann has all the makings of a great music director - he has his finger on the pulse of current music (Jay Z, Lana Del Rey, Fergie, Will.I.Am on the OST), he's adept with the camera (stunning visuals, great lighting) and most importantly, he knows whom to cast

    A famous Hindi film actor (who shall naturally go nameless here) once told me, while gushing about Baz Luhrmann’s work and cinematic flair, that he “is like Sanjay Leela Bhansali [ Images ], gone right.” I laughed it off at the time, but there are few more astutely drawn parallels than between these gentlemen who insist on creating opera but staging it a la cabaret. Alas, it is with this new adaptation of The Great Gatsby -- in which Luhrmann

    If it weren’t for Baz Luhrmann’s name attached to the credit, it would seem like 'The Great Gatsby' is Subhash Ghai’s best film in years. The only thing missing in it is a sequence that has Leonardo DiCaprio singing ‘Meri Mehbooba’ for Mahima Chaudhry. The 1974 Robert Redford version of 'The Great Gatsby' was a dull bore, and it seemed like a good idea when Baz Luhrmann announced his plans to make his own version, given his proclivity

    While the book left ample scope for a reader to fill in the settings, romanticise the era and paint the characters his own shade of grey, Luhrmann’s visual flourish leaves little to imagination.
