Yesterday dodges real implications of a Beatle-less world

There were musicians, wildly popular ones, before the Beatles, but none approached their worldwide multimedia explosion.

Review: Yesterday, a Beatles what-if story

What a clever premise for a film: Everyone but our hero wakes up never knowing The Beatles. Himesh Patel is hugely convincing in his effort to relearn the most valuable songbook in history. The songs are recorded live, adding immediacy to the music scenes. The film opens today in theaters everywhere.

Review: Yesterday proves too clumsy for its clever conceit

Like a lot of surreal comic fantasies, Yesterday just invites you to shrug and go along with its cheerfully ridiculous premise. I was glad to do so, up to a point. The lead actor, Himesh Patel, has an engaging presence and a lovely singing voice. But the movie is directed with uncharacteristic blandness by Danny Boyle.

Review: Himesh Patel masters the Beatles in Yesterday

Himesh Patel wasn't always a Beatles fan. Growing up, he preferred indie rock and Bollywood. That has now changed, says the actor, showing off a pair of Yellow Submarine novelty socks. He said, "I had to be respectful but not reverent to the originals, and have some element of originality because, of course, they don't exist."
