After Margarita With A Straw, a film based on a teenager with celebral palsy, director Shonali Bose has a new tale to tell. This time around, the filmmaker is here to narrate the real life story of the Chaudharys – Aditi, Niren and their daughter Aisha, who suffered from pulmonary fibrosis. Titled The Sky Is Pink, the movie features Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf in lead roles.
Two days before the theatrical release of the film, we’re watching a special screening of The Sky Is Pink. We’re halfway through the Shonali Bose directorial and it is so far so good. The first half is high on emotional quotient but in the darkest hours of their lives, the Chaudharys bring a smile on our faces. Aditi, a South Delhi girl, and Niren, a Chandni Chowk guy, wow us a romantic couple with their cute moments and nok-jhok. Their before and after marriage relationship builds the crux of the first half but it is the parental side to them which leaves us teary-eyed. Their struggle to save for their daughter’s treatment reminded us of all the sacrifices that our parents have made for us. Despite knowing the seriousness of disease that Aisha is suffering from, the Chaudharys keep a heart of steel. Basically, the first half establishes Panda (Niren) and Moose’s (Aditi) easy-breezy romance and an introduction to the brave face that they put up despite the hurdles in life. So far, The Sky Is Pink seems so good. And we have to say, Priyanka Chopra Jonas made a right choice to pick this one as her Bollywood comeback film.
Let’s see what awaits us in the latter part of this heartwarming tale. Watch this space for full movie review of The Sky Is Pink
