Aamir Khan starrer Secret Superstar which is scheduled to release on October 19 (Thursday) has been dubbed as the biggest movie of the year – yes we know all about Judwaa 2 and Toilet Ek Prem Katha. The Dangal superstar in his upcoming movie plays the character of an aspiring singer. It is a coming-of-age story with a refreshing plot aimed directly at GenNext – what they aspire for, dream about. One can easily say that Secret Superstar will be a content-driven film as this small-budget film chronicles how a young Baroda girl Insia becomes an internet sensation even after facing resistance from her father. Considering that Aamir and Zaira’s last venture Dangal was a record-breaking hit, some assume Secret Superstar that could cash in on the Dangal popularity and lure audiences to the theaters. And it is so true. The movie just goes on making its audience laugh with tears in their eyes. The plot seems interesting and gripping as well.
In the movie, Aamir takes a step back and lets Zaira become the secret superstar and the result is spectacular. It is not special because Aamir has put himself in the background, he gets just 30 minutes of screenplay in film, it is the fact that the movie makes so much sense and the other actors carry it off magnificently without losing the plot that makes it so very much special.
Talking of Zaira’s performance she is sure to gather a lot of appreciation for her heartful act. Apart from Aamir and Zaira, some other actors have also made remarkable performances in the movie who are – Meher Vij [mother], Raj Arjun [father], Tirth Sharma [friend]. Overall it is a must watch the movie on Diwali and be a part of the laughter that the movie is set to offer.
The background score in the movie is by the magnificent AR Rehman and it is as heart-touching and soulful as it can be. It is set to be the movie of the year and therefore, revealing anything more would spoil your fun. Just go and watch!
