There are some films which you can’t describe in words because it enriches you and helps you to grow as a person. It’s really an entertaining film but beyond that, this film has an inner voice with which you can connect with while watching it. Every family member especially mother-daughter will appreciate this movie and somewhere or the other it will connect with every audience.

He always brings something new to the table, not in terms of his looks but in terms of view point. Screenplay, story and direction of the film are outstanding and all actors performed brilliantly in the film.
Kiran Rao – As always, we all are nervous before the release of the film but now we are kind of relived after hearing good things from our industry people and now it’s totally up to the audience to see how they will react to this film.
Jacqueline Fernandez – It was amazing. Throughout the film, everyone was so overwhelmed because it touches on so many important subjects but at the same time, it was like a master piece.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra –It’s a fabulous film. I have never seen a relationship between mother and daughter like that in any Hindi film. After watching the film, it reminded me the relation shared by mother and son in ‘Mother India’ (1957) which was played by Nargis Dutt and Sunil Dutt. Zaira Wasim is a Kashmiri girl and I am from Kashmir so as a Kashmiri, I feel very proud that she has done so well in this film. I feel everyone from Kashmir should see this film to realize what kind of talent they have and they should try to encourage that.
