REVIEWS:

"Martin Preiss's cinematography is damn good and captures the locales well."

 

"On the technical front, the movie boasts of an ace level cinematography thanks to the cinematographer Martin Preiss and breathtaking VFX. The underwater scenes with their rich aesthetic value are completely mesmerizing."

 

"This is Budapest captured in all its gorgeous glory by Czech cinematographer Martin Preiss who can't decide what he loves more, the lovers or the landscape. So, the camera decides to celebrate the lovers' love and the landscape all in one swirling breathless scoop of sleazeless sexiness."

 

"Raabta has rich production values and Pritam and JAM8's songs, Sachin-Jigar's background score, Martin Preiss' picturisation, action choreography, VFX works, beautiful locales, costumes and art direction are the attractions on the technical front, add film-goers."

 

"Similarly, credit must go to the cinematographer Martin Preiss for precision."

 

"Martin Preiss scores high in the cinematography department as his camera perfectly flirts with the picturesque locations in the film."

 

"This is a film that is cloaked in layers of technical finesse - much of it is contributed by the lighting and visual compositions of Czech cinematographer Martin Preiss."

 

"So although Rajput and Sanon are both charismatic, sweet and good looking, and director of photography Martin Preiss lays picture-postcard visuals across their story, they cannot save the film from its been-there-done-that feel."

 

"The story, written by Siddharth and Garima, is an unholy mess. Debutant director Dinesh Vijan tries to dress it up with gorgeous European locations, sparkling cinematography by Martin Preiss, killer styling by Anaita Shroff Adajania and Deepika Padukone – she gets the film’s best song. But even Martin Scorsese couldn’t infuse coherence or sparkle into this tripe."

 

"Martin Preiss's camerawork is impressive and brings some grain to the film. The underwater shots, especially, are shot aesthetically."

 

"Martin Preiss as the DoP does a good job with the sweeping visuals and stellar locations [Budapest] that are a perfect fit for the story"

 

"Martin Preiss has managed to capture the most beautiful sunset moments of Budapest and some breathtaking shots of Mauritius as well. It must be said that the VFX, though not quite Baahubali style, are impressive enough."
