    The first thing I personally did after watching Secret Superstar was to text my mom how much I love her. Watch the film to start believing in your dreams and to know how much your mother loves you.

    I’ve lost count of the number of times Aamir Khan has showed up in theatres in the final quarter, with what could be the most universally loved movie of the year. This is very likely to be another one. As you can tell, I totally loved it!

    Yes, it’s an inspiring journey of a daughter and a mother but it’s Aamir’s character that’s the story’s actual catalyst. Here is a film that’s a must watch for anyone who has dreams but feels overwhelmed by the odds. And, rest assured, Aamir’s groovy, never-seen-before avatar alone makes it worth the ticket price!

    In the end, it is the Mother’s love that stands out and brings a lot of heart and soul in this film. A strong recommendation to watch it out with your family on this Diwali weekend.

    “Secret Superstar” has no secret about it – it is an open book on how if movies were actors, this one would be a superstar! As a David, let us hope that this week’s Goliath – “Golmaal Again” – matches it in performance! It will then be a bumper festive season, unlike last year that had two duds taking cover under their 100 crore Indian nett business.

    Secret Superstar belongs to its incredible cast that glosses over many of the film’s minor lapses. Advait Chandan makes an assured directing debut, delivering a film that is ultimately heartbreaking and heartwarming in equal measure.

    Although a little over-dramatic towards the end, Secret Superstar effectively strikes the emotional chord. With Zaira Wasim’s fine performance as the lead, this film has very good repeat value.

    Secret Superstar’s cheerful, feel-good imagery of a rotten reality, captured gorgeously in cinematographer Anil Mehta’s lens and aided by Amit Trivedi’s soaring tunes, reflects a young adult’s hopeful perspective yet to be crushed by the weight of cynicism.

    Advait Chandan’s film is a thoroughly rewarding cinematic experience, sweet and thought-provoking in equal measure. It is simple, but not simplistic (barring the ease with which a non-entity like Insia becomes high-profile almost overnight on the worldwide web and the fact that she appears to escape Internet trolls who in reality would viciously attack such a kid because of her gender and her Muslim identity). Aamir’s presence has given it pre-release visibility, but what gives it staying power through its running time is the strength of its storytelling and conviction.

    Secret Superstar is an important film that needs to be watched not just for the  message, but also because it is entertaining and has one of the best performances of the year by Zaira Wasim.

    As the movie does not lend itself to comedy as much, I’ll throw in an observation of my own to send you home thinking if not smiling. Salman Khan still rules Eid and Aamir Khan still rules Christmas but Shahrukh Khan has been ousted from his tentpole Diwali release date. What does this mean?

    Secret Superstar is a bit unbelievable, like Insia’s video getting 30 million views. I mean yeh kuch jyada ho gaya…but these are minor hiccups in an otherwise beautiful film. Go watch it with family this Diwali.

    Aamir Khan shows up as the out-of-flavour musician Shakti Kumaarr, all tight animal-printed Ts and crotch-hugging jeans, and while his I’m-so-irresistible strutting schtick starts off funny, you wish he had more to do.

    The film is not pitch perfect, but it has few memorable moments and a superstar-in-the-making in Zaira Wasim.

    Secret Superstar is a heartwarming portrayal of girl power. A  bit of  restrain and some muted melodrama  would have taken this film much further.It has long sturdy legs. But chooses not to go far enough.

    How a little girl with big dreams becomes a burka-wearing YouTube sensation is the story of the film. But the cliches drown what could be fun and frothy into sentimental molasses.

    The problem with “Secret Superstar” is that it starts out with a good idea, but the film unravels because it wants to say too many things at once.

    Secret Superstar is a surefire superhit. It may have started slow but its supremely positive word of mouth will take it to great and unimaginable heights. Ladies and families, especially, will adore the film and ensure that it has a long run at the cinemas. The Muslim population, especial- ly the womenfolk, will identify beautifully with the characters and become the biggest publicists of the film. Business Overseas will also be superb.
