Secret Superstar Review & Rating

|

'Secret Superstar' starring Zaira Wasim of 'Dangal' fame created a lot of buzz, thanks to the star power of Aamir Khan who is making a cameo appearance in the film. The film has finally hit the screens, let's see whether the movie lives up to the hype or not. The story is all about Insiya (Zaira Wasim) who is a good singer and dreams of becoming a singing superstar one day. Her mother supports her well but it is his conventional father (Raj Arjun) who never encourages her and stands in support of his son. How Insiya breaks through all the odds and becomes a Superstar should be watched on the big screen.

Performances wise, Zaira Wasim shines as Insiya and plays the role with perfection. Though she gave a commendable performance in 'Dangal' itself, in 'Secret Superstar' she is a complete revelation and once again stole the show. There are lots of scenes where she excels and impresses the audience big time. She has a long way to go in Bollywood and all she needs to do is select good scripts.  Meher Vij played the mother's role perfectly and brings in the much needed emotional connect in the film. She is absolutely brilliant in her role and she might get many more offers from Bollywood very soon. Aamir Khan as 'Shakti Kumaarr' once again impresses us with his looks and performance of course.

On the technical front, the movie scores big as every department did their jobs well to make a perfect feel-good entertainer. Anil Mehta's cinematography is neat and adequate. The most important aspect of a film like 'Secret Superstar' is music which is composed by Amit Trivedi who slowly is making his presence felt in Bollywood. He has given soulful and apt tunes for the film but it's his background which is good only in bits and parts. Production Values from Aamir Khan's production house are top notch and the film looks quite rich. Director Advait Chandan has done a superb job and handled the movie perfectly. He has extracted superb performances from all of his actors and made a near-perfect feel-good drama.
