Very Poetic & Captivating
merchantmisha8 October 2019
The movie takes you on a journey, that will leave a lasting impression on you. Priyanka & Farhan aced their roles, and Zarina brings justice to such a sensitive topic.

Triumphant tear-jerker!

#FinalVerdict

Few filmmakers stick their necks out to tell difficult stories. For their intentions alone, Ronnie Screwvala's RSVP Movies & Roy Kapur Films deserve a thumbs-up. Take a bow, Shonali Bose!

Some films are more than just cinematic expressions and The Sky Is Pink is one such film where director Shonali Bose has worked herself to the grind & her presence is felt in every frame. Her devotion and dedication towards her craft is truly inspirational. The Sky Is Pink is special in more ways than one. In my individualistic opinion, it easily ranks amongst this year best works so far. Just don't miss this one!

Clearly, the writing (Shonali Bose & Nilesh Maniyar) is smart, taut and absorbing. Kudos! The emotions in The Sky Is Pink would've fallen flat had the writing been sub-standard or the execution of the material been humdrum or the actors been inferior. But, thankfully, it scores in all three departments. All said and done, it's an outstanding film!

The story is complex but The Sky Is Pink is *not* disheartening or unsettling. The emotional quotient is tremendous. You'll overhear a lot of sniffs & see a lot of moist eyes once the lights are switched on. But it's a positive film & not a rona-dhona movie. Irrespective of how this film performs at the box-office, but note this, director Shonali Bose would be a force to reckon with after The Sky Is Pink. Pritam's music is soothing. Nick Cooke & Kartik Vijay's cinematography is incredible. The very effective and subtle background score (Mikey McCleary1) is The Sky Is Pink's very backbone. For the very first time, I felt that I was not hearing the background score, I was feeling it. Dialogue (Juhi Chaturvedi & Nilesh Maniyar) will touch your soul.

Now to the performances! Farhan Akhtar & Priyanka Chopra make the characters so plausible. It must be said that Farhan Akhtar & Priyanka Chopra exude a certain dignity and elegance, much needed for a sensitive film of this magnitude & caliber. Kudos to them! That doesn't mean that the remaining performances get dwarfed. Not once does Zaira Wasim dither from her position. This is the hallmark of a tremendous actor, which Zaira Wasim is. Rohit Saraf is a revelation, another surprise of The Sky Is Pink. Amazing!

Manas Mittal's editing is so well synchronized that the 2+ hours of your precious life that you would spend on this movie are absolutely worth your while. On the whole, The Sky Is Pink is an amazing experience. Should win awards & also box-office rewards. It should strike a chord with everyone with a heart. An unmissable film which encapsulates the true essence of life & death & seduces the viewer with a strong emotional quotient.

It shows how to celebrate life even in face of death
neetikaniti8 October 2019
Warning: Spoilers
A brilliant movie, based on true struggles of a normal couple trying to save their daughter's life. The pain and desperation of a parent to just do the best for their child is portrayed in this movie aptly. Priyanka as Aditi and Farhan as Niren excel in their roles. Zaira and Rohit are just as good. This movie heals you, makes you laugh with tears in your eyes and makes you want to appreciate your family just much more.

The Sky is Pink is an absolute winner!
tripsterworld15 December 2019
Warning: Spoilers
The Sky is Pink deserves special mention for its warm treatment of a subject as dark and unsettling as death. Since, the very theme is manipulative you cannot help crying. The first half is light, the second half will break your heart.

There are a few scenes that I personally loved, both performance and presentation vice.

1. Aisha's death sequence is beautiful. It's heart breaking to see a character die infront of you. And Shonali Bose conducts the scene absolutely brilliantly. The build up is precise with Aisha's hopeless eyes that stare into her mother Aditi's. Aditi is quick enough to realize it's time to say her daughter goodbye. She calls in family members. Gets the book Aisha wrote and finally bids her final goodbye. The scene doesn't have any background music. People at the theater were all crying. It's an unapologetically brave and gut wrenching viewing. Kudos to Zaira Wasim who sells it with her soulful performance.

2. Aisha appears cool with her death on the outside while she's literally shattered from the inside. She doesn't have her brother around. She cannot confide to her parents because they're already heart-broken and overwhelmed. She gets on a call with her brother Giraffe and breaks down saying "I dont wanna die". Zaira gives a stellar performance yet again. The scene again lacks a background music, so comes out as stark and gritty and real. Rohit Saraf as Giraffe is decent in his potrayal of a similarly broken brother who cannot do anything but try to put his sister at ease. Brilliantly scripted.

3. Aish's death leaves an un-fillable void in the Chaudhary family. This scene is again heart breaking. Giraffe, Aish's brother is sitting blankly on his bed, when Niren (father) walks in. The father confides in his son, breaks down sobbing in his arms. Absolutely emotional scene, as the dog too comes in to give a shoulder to grieve for the loss.

The movie is worth watching for its brilliant performances. Chopra gives one of her career best and so does Akhtar. Wasim and Saraf deliver an equally surprising performance, though the latter gets only a little space to shine. The screenplay and the choice of a non linear narrative was risky but was pulled off really well. Songs feature really apt lyrics. Zindagi and Dil hi toh hai, both by Arijit Singh are brilliant. Shonali Bose as a director adds another feather to her cap. Overall The Sky is Pink comes as an absolute winner in all aspects. Deserves easily a 9+ rating.

Poignant and playful rendering of a real life story
Avnitharv11 October 2019
Tsip is a movie thats a beautiful testimony to a couple who work out their marriage inspite of all the tornados that hit their life. Its poignant yet funny.The cast is perfect. The director does a clever job at maintaining the thin balance between an offbeat cinema and mainstream bollywood.a must watch

Heart touching film
rupsab-6006211 October 2019
The film is so beautiful. Not a big fan of the first half tho a bit too slow. The second half had me in tears. PC & Farhan's chemistry is beautiful. Rohit and Zaira also did a splendid job.

Good movie, a different concept for a family drama.
manishmanu-9892511 October 2019
Amazing chemistry being shared by Farhan and Priyanka. What a comeback made by Priyanka Chopra after 3 long years in Bollywood, strong acting done by Priyanka and co actors like Farhan ,and zaira also acted amazingly and Rohit Saruf played his role as big brother of ziara was also good , His debut in sky is pink was a dream come true for him and his acting shows that he has a lot of potential. Not everyone will like this movie. 2nd half is a bit draggy.

A MUST-WATCH movie with family!
akashsidhu-3945211 October 2019
This is a serious movie with powerful message and outstanding performance by Priyanka and Farhan ...This movie can make you smile and cry at the same time!! Such a heartbreaking yet warm film. The Sky Is Pink is a film that understands and breaks down the specifics of grief, unravels the lingering agony of trauma and argues that the fragility of life is precisely what makes it so precious.. A must watch movie.!

Great movie... Mature representation of emotions.
variyasingh11 October 2019
The performances by all actors was bang on. The plot progression was smooth. It's not a typical masala film and yet so catchy in it's own style. I wish this movie be appreciated for it's true and genuine story.

Bold, Powerful, Hard to watch, Moving, Though provoking
hrishikeshdeshpande-0148814 October 2019
This movie elevated Bollywood to another level. The Sky is pink does not shy away from showing difficult, painful moments from a raw perspective.

Excellent story telling, screenplay and acting by Priyanka and Farhan. Salute to Shonali Bose for the epic portrayal of a helpless and pragmatic couple trying to win lives for their daufhter, their family and themselves.

This movie will leave you devastated, teary eyed, with a lump in your throat, but also make you ponder.

A Perfect Family Drama Movie - Just Ignore the bad reviews
issaahmed10 October 2019
Please do yourself a favor and go watch this movie if you like family drama. Before going to this movie, I checked the reviews and saw some bad ones, but these bad reviews seems FAKE ,, repeating the word "melodrama" in all the bad reviews ,, Priyanka BAD acting???? !!!!! Seriously ,, did you even watch the movie ??? It was just AWESOME ,, from acting ,, to storyline ,, to direction ,, maybe a bit slow but was totally worth it.

PRETTY DISAPPOINTING
sharimohan-655-17863711 October 2019
Frankly I went into the movie with high expectations but was disappointed basically with the treatment of an extremely great story. I feel both Aditi and Naren would be devastated in the manner that they were portrayed in the film. Needless lateral story telling and failed attempts to infuse humour the film didnt even leave an impression to last for even one night. There was immense potential but abstract story telling and superficial treatment and acting makes it a painful watch. I go with 3 out of 10 with an added 1 for poor Farhan for his earnestness in portraying the only character that appeared somewhat relatable. Frankly the film is almost twice as much longer than what it should have been at 85- 90 mins it may have left a better impression than the boring 149 minutes.
