The Fault In Our Stars Review

Innumerable love stories have come and gone during the last few decades and some of them have joined the classic films belonging to the same genre while some have faded into oblivion. The Fault In Our Stars is one movie that belongs to the former category. Though it falls short of a classic, the film definitely touch our heart as we feel connected with the lead pair and feels for the tragedy they face in their life.

The film is an adaptation based on Newyork Times best selling novel and the story revolves around teenagers Hasal and Gus who are getting treated for cancer. The two fall for each other when they meet at a cancer support group's programme. Once they meet they realise that they have things in common and they have lot to share between themselves.

As we all know, many love stories end on a high with a positive outcome but here we know its going to be a tragic ending as the two lovers are in their final stages of life battling cancer. There are some finer moments that will make you literally cry, so be ready for that if you have plans to watch the film.

On screen you have Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort portraying the characters of Hazel and Augustus Waters and both of them have done a remarkable job in presenting their respective characters bringing out the varied emotions that were required at different points of time. Rest of the supporting actors also did a balanced act to make the film a beautiful one.

This is not the regular colourful and fun filled romantic entertainer that we normally see and if you are looking for something of that sort, you are in for a disappointment.
The Fault In Our Stars is a different love story, a film with a tragic ending that would make you cry for the two lovers. I am going with three and a half out of five.

Rating : 3.5 / 5
