Film: Secret Superstar

Writer & Director: Advait Chandan

Producer: Aamir Khan

Rating: 3/3

Advait Chandan's witty, melodramatic, musical drama "Secret Superstar" focuses on a teenage girl who wishes to become a singing sensation, in spite of having numerous hurdles in her life. Zaira who plays Insia, a wannabe singer is always being pushed back because of her father's conservative mindset. The film shows how she purposely tries to reach success.

Debutante Advait Chandan has written a beautiful, lovely and meaningful screenplay which amuses me for about two and a half hours. Story actually seems to be usual, but after the second climax it doesn't. It completely makes you feel like Insia. The way the girl feels depressed because of her arrogant father makes you narky. Advait's direction is also praise-worthy. He has handled the film with utmost care.

Aamir Khan who plays the role of Shakti Kumar, a funny and substandard music director is nice. He will always be there to tickle your funny bone.

Comprehensively, I've actually got no words to say for this pleasurable musical drama. Just go and watch this film, I guarantee you that you would come out of the theater with a smile. Thank you.
