Quotes

Najma: Did the chicken come first or the egg?
Insia: It depends on the situation... If you want to eat chicken, the egg comes first - it hatches into a chicken, which you cook. But, if you want to eat an omelette, the chicken comes first - it lays the egg, which you make into an omelette.

MARVELLOUS heartfelt movie for all the mothers out there!A TRUE GEM...
23 October 2017 | by vinayhelsingSee all my reviews

This is my first IMDb review and I don't know why am I writing this although I am not into this review thing :P...Maybe the movie drove me here. First things first....Aamir Khan - take a bow for this man.He always did everything right.Fits into every single role as if there's no one on the planet who can do them so perfectly as he did!! This is a simple script, a girl who is not even allowed to dream has a dream..to sing big! Zaira Wasim..mmuahh.....Loved her throughout the film <3<3<3... Meher as the mother was magnificent. Simple script, beautiful screenplay, heartfelt emotions, altogether, an emotional ride!!!A perfect blend of a mother's love and some Aamir's comic... A must watch for everyone... 10 on 10!No more words... Now stop reading and go watch it
