This movie marks Zaira Wasim’s third and last film. The Dangal fame actress announced her retirement from acting over religious issues recently. Aisha, the central character is clearly speaking from her grave in this film and tells the gripping story of her parents Niren and Aditi (Farhan Akhtar & Priyanka Chopra) to keep their daughter alive.
The director chose to move away from heavy melodrama to a much lighter and fun way of dealing with a tragedy. Drawing inspiration from her own life, Shonali introduces Niren and Aditi’s love story in a typical Bollywood song and dance rom-com. By keeping the narrative tight, this movie takes the audience on a joyful ride where they laugh and cry both. The film is a tear-jerker and strikes a chord with the audience as the end credits roll and happy pictures of Chaudhary family play on screen.
Priyanka Chopra keeps the audience glued to screen with her anxious motherly act and sets the screen on fire with her fiery presence. Farhan Akhtar is breezy and has a down-to-earth appeal as the perfect husband. The duo brings out a wonderful on-screen chemistry. Zaira Wasim who plays the 16-year-old Aisha is wonderful on-screen and it’s sad that we won’t see more of her in Bollywood.
The film is both heartwarming and heartbreaking and is sure to tug many hearts when it releases on 11th October. If we enthralled you with our update on the movie, show us some love in comments and find your Bollywood fun on FanKick app with polls and trivia challenges.
