Near the end of the movie when Kumail is looking through the window in the hospital room door he can see Emily's head but when the shot switches to the other side of the bed it is obvious you would not be able to see her from the window because of the angle of the bathroom wall.

Revealing mistakes 

When Holly Hunter is signing papers to discharge her daughter from the hospital, she checks the time on her watch by looking at the bottom of her wrist. However, the face of the watch is on the top of her wrist, so she wouldn't be able to see the time.
