Oliver Hirschbiegel's "Diana" is a biopic that doesn't do much justice to probably the most enigmatic woman in modern history. The film highlights the last two years of Diana's life and the screenplay is based on Kate Snell's book Diana: Her Last Love written by Stephen Jeffreys which came out in 2001.

Naomi Watts plays Princess Diana. In the first shot, we get to see Diana on her last evening and then we are transported back, two years before the fatal car crash. After a few visits to a hospital, Diana falls in love with a jazz-loving, Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews). This is post her divorce with Prince Charles. Now that Hasnat is dating the world's most famous woman, their own problems begin to crop up as their relationship makes headlines in the local tabloids.

The film shows Diana's bold life. It showcases decisions-right or wrong, taken by the Princess of Wales in search of love. It portrays her focus and conviction on connecting with people all across the world and also shows how she used the media right at the need of the hour.

Naomi Watts does her bit but falls short in portraying someone as strong and popular as Diana. All credit goes to the hair and makeup department who give her the perfect look.

Diana is not a bad film but the problem isâ
¦the Princess of Wales deserves a lot better.
