Secret Superstar

Critics Review


A simple heartfelt film but one in which you run the entire gamut of emotions - joy, tears, excitement and ebullience.

what makes 'Secret Superstar' stand out is the adventurous narrative that keeps you rooted and guessing. You can feel the frustration of the Malik household in which not just people, even emotions are trapped. When the protagonist breaks free, you find yourself simultaneously wiping your tears and doing a victory lap.(more)

Aamir Khan, Zaira Wasim's film shines bright

Secret Superstar's biggest asset is Aamir Khan. His comedy despite being slapstick in nature, is worth noticing. Zaira Wasim lives up to the expectations and the film has a message. In short, Secret Superstar has everything you ask for, but it isn't exceptional storytelling.(more)

Aamir Khan, Zaira Wasim, Meher Vij starrer has EQ and IQ

Secret Superstar is an unconventional Hindi film in so many ways. It is that rare mainstream, unapologetically commercial Bollywood venture that places the spotlight firmly on domestic violence. It stars one of the biggest male stars in the history of Hindi cinema yet he is not the protagonist, nor does he position his role as a �guest appearance�. (more)
