With Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink, Priyanka Chopra Jonas makes her Bollywood comeback after a gap of more than three years. Fans of the actress were eagerly waiting to see her in a Hindi film, and well, the wait has been worth it.
The Sky Is Pink is based on the life of four people, Aisha Chaudhary (Zaira Wasim), Aditi Chaudhary (Priyanka Chopra), Niren Chaudhary (Farhan Akhtar) and Ishaan Chaudhary (Rohit Suresh Saraf). It showcases the struggle that parents go through to save their child and give their child everything that makes her happy.
Well, if you know about the motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhry who was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, and passed away in 2015 at the age of 19, then you might have an idea what the film is going to offer. However, the movie is not just about her or the illness; it is about the Chaudharys who stood with each other in thick and thin.
Shonali Bose has come up with an emotional film that will surely make you cry, but it has scenes that will make you laugh out loud and will also make you go aww… because of the cute moments in it. It’s nowhere overdramatic, and it is very realistic in many ways. It’s a film where you leave the theatre with tears in your eyes and a smile on your face. Yes, that is something very rarely happens.
Talking about performances, Priyanka Chopra Jonas is simply excellent in the film. This is clearly one of the best performances of her career and we won’t be surprised if she takes home the Best Actress trophy at the award functions next year. Zaira Wasim as Aisha is the soul of the film. We really hope that she continues to do movies as it will be a loss for Bollywood if such a talented actress decides to stop acting. Farhan Akhtar is very good in his role and Rohit Suresh Saraf is amazing in the movie.
Overall, The Sky Is Pink is an emotional, heart-warming film with Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Zaira Wasim at their best.
P.S. Please carry a few tissue papers when you go to watch the film, you will need it.
