Secret Superstar Movie Review: Zaira Wasim Is A Treat, Aamir Khan Tackles Shakti Kumaarr With Glee

Cast: Aamir Khan, Zaira Wasim, Meher Vij, Raj Arjun
Director: Advait Chandan
Genre: Drama
Rating: 3.5 stars
Let us get the quibbles out of the way first. Secret Superstar, written and directed by debutant Advait Chandan, is a bit like an over-enthusiastic child gifted a new bicycle. It never takes the foot off the pedal. The overlong film could have done with more restraint. It frequently seems to get carried away by the urge not to miss any trick in the book. But who cares when the sentiments with which it informs the emotionally charged story of a 15-year-old Vadodara girl who dreams of miracles for herself and her mother, is, in the end, so well-orchestrated?There is no great secret here: Secret Superstar is for every mother, daughter and human being who loves and relates to Bollywood melodrama. The film taps the genre to narrate a compelling, if familiar, tale. The portrayal of the world of a middle class Muslim family in which the women still have to subscribe to strict social codes is strikingly heartfelt. At times, it isn’t subtle. The man of the house, an itinerant engineer, is given to flying off the handle, leading to the women being subjected to verbal and physical violence.

The grouchy, perennially distracted man returns home from an official trip. The wife opens the door. He asks: Guddu kaisa hai (How is Guddu)? Guddu is the couple’s only son. It is as if the daughter has no existence, which obviously makes her battle to assert herself and chase her goal all the more bitter. Nothing new there either.

On the positive side, the script takes recourse to no conventional signifiers to underscore the religious identity of the Malik family of Vadodara, barring the burqa that is fished out of the cupboard for the daughter to conceal her personal ‘identity’ in the youtube videos that turn her into an overnight singing sensation. She seeks widespread recognition for her talent but her orthodox father will have none of it. It is an uphill battle for the girl and her empathetic and actively supportive mother, but we know that dreams do come true in Bollywood fantasies.

Parts of Secret Superstar touch the very pinnacle of the form of storytelling that defines the Mumbai movie mainstream. You may nitpick to your heart’s content over the way Secret Superstar pans out, but this film will sure steal your heart. Okay, if the film as a whole doesn’t, the magnificent Zaira Wasim certainly will. And if even she doesn’t, just let your dil do the thinking. Chances are that you will go home happy as a king or a queen, as the case may be. Yes, Secret Superstar is the sort of film that disarms you at entry and quickly pushes you into a frame of mind that allows you to readily pardon its length, clichés and overly broad brushstrokes.


The melodramatic business of a young girl rebelling against the conservatism of her dad, a mother trapped in an unhappy marriage and battered black and blue by an abusive husband, and a small-towner’s musical journey driven by passion, ambition and self-belief is at the heart of Secret Superstar. The film’s overt theatricality is adeptly offset by the lightness and playful quality brought to the table by the figure of a brash, flamboyant, twice-divorced, ostracized-by-the-industry music director who pretends to be more cocky and carefree than he actually is.

Aamir plunges into Shakti Kumaarr – double ‘a’ and double ‘r’ in place in an obvious dig at the Mumbai movie industry’s fetish for numerology – with unabashed glee, which is expressed most riotously in an end-credits ‘item’ number in which the star shakes a leg with abandon.

This is typical of Aamir Khan: he does not hog the spotlight though he does dominate many a scene with his flashy clothes and the to-hell-with-you demeanour. Shakti Kumaarr isn’t the principal agent of change in the life of Insia Malik, a high schoolgirl whose voice travels far and wide and sets off a chain of events that raise hopes of liberation. She is a feisty, rebellious girl who goads her mother to take a stand against domestic violence. It is her financially dependent but ever-positive mother, Najma (Meher Vij), who is the girl’s guide and mentor despite that horrors that she has to confront as the wife of a violent boor (played with cold efficiency by Raj Arjun).

Mujhse maang lena, zindagi se nahin,” the mother says to Insia when she expresses a desire for something that appears to be beyond the ken of the possible. Secret Superstar is a story of dreams, disappointments, little revolts and terrible blowbacks that will make you laugh and cry and transport you to a fuzzy, warm zone.

A tremulous teenage love story is dovetailed into the screenplay. Insia’s unassuming classmate Chintan Parekh (Tirth Sharma) makes no bones about the soft corner that he has for her. Despite her initial reservations, he becomes her best friend and most trusted accomplice when she dares to break free from her shackles.

Through the character of Shakti Kumaarr, the film takes good-humoured swipes at the ways of the music industry, award shows and the entertainment media. But Secret Superstar never loses sight of its principal purpose: lending heft and height to a daughter’s derring-do and a mom’s mutiny. It achieves that end not the least because of the magic that the perfectly cast Zaira Wasim and Meher Vij – the duo could pass off as daughter and mom in real life – rustle up.

Zaira is an absolute treat – a bundle of miracles! As for the wonderful Meher Vij, one can only ask: where was she all these years? We hope to see more of her on the big screen.

Secret Superstar is a winner notwithstanding the bumps along the way.

Dangal, which means ‘wrestling’, revolves around the extraordinary life of Mahavir Singh, an ex-wrestler who could never accomplish his dream of winning India an international Gold medal in wrestling. He has to give up on his dream due to financial pressures.

Mahavir Singh pacifies himself and resolves if not him, his would be son would one day realize his dream. However, destiny has other plans. Over almost two decades he and his wife are blessed with four children, all girls. Mahavir Singh loses hope.

But, when one day his eldest daughter Geeta, now 14 years old and the second one Babita, now 12 years old, bash up some grown up boys from the neighbourhood for teasing them, he realizes that his daughters have what it takes to be world-class wrestlers. Hope is back in his life. After all, a gold medal is a gold medal whether a boy wins it or a girl.

What follows is a relentless pursuit of Mahavir Singh, over a period of 10 years, in making his daughters world-class wrestlers. He leaves no stone unturned. He trains them with boys, like boys, to beat boys in various local village wrestling tournaments. He removes every temptation that comes between his daughters and wrestling. He makes sure they don’t just fight, but fight to win.

Against all odds he bravely embraces all criticism from the society, lack of money, apathy from officials and much more, but never gives up… all to see India win Gold.

Aamir Khan : “When I chat with Kiran at home, she says ‘Should we move out of India?’

In reference to the debate on intolerance, Bollywood star Aamir Khan on Monday said he was “alarmed” by the number of incidents and revealed that his wife Kiran Rao had even suggested leaving the country.


Khan supported the artists returning their awards, saying it was one of the ways for creative people to express their dissatisfaction or disappointment.

“As an individual, as part of this country as a citizen, we read in the papers what is happening, we see it on the news and certainly, I have been alarmed. I can’t deny. I have been alarmed by a number of incidents,” he said while speaking here at the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards ceremony.

The actor said he also felt that a sense of insecurity and fear has been growing in the past six or eight months.

“When I chat with Kiran at home, she says ‘Should we move out of India?’ That’s a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make. She fears for her child. She fears about what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers every day.”

“That does indicate that there is this sense of growing disquiet, there is growing despondency, apart from alarm. You feel why this is happening, you feel low. That sense does exist in me,” 50-year-old Aamir said.

The actor said that for any society, it is important to have a sense of security and sense of justice.

Taking potshots at politicians, he said “… People who are our elected representatives, people who we select to look after us for five years, state or centre… when people take law into their hands, we look upon these people to take a strong stance, to make a strong statement, speed up the legal process; when we see that happening there is a sense of security but when we don’t see that happening there is a sense of insecurity.”

Endorsing the move by scientists, writers and filmmakers to return their awards to register their protest against the atmosphere of ‘growing intolerance’, he said for creative people it is important to voice what they feel.

“For creative people, one of the ways of expressing their dissatisfaction or their disappointment is to return their awards. I think that’s one way of getting your point across,” he said.

When asked if he endorsed the protests, Khan said he would as long as it is non-violent as “all individuals have a right to protest and they can protest in any manner that they feel is right as long as they are not taking the law into their hands.”

Shah Rukh Khan’s Happy New Year Stands At Fourth Spot


Shah Rukh Khan‘s Happy New Year Stands At Fourth Spot

Shah Rukh Khan has managed to rake in big moolah this Diwali with Farah Khan directorial and red chillies entertainment production Happy New Year.

Aamir Khan manages to retain his top spot with Dhoom 3, where he starred opposite Katrina Kaif in the lead and Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra. Aamir Khan may even break it with his upcoming film Raj Kumar Hirani’s PK starrer Anushka Sharma.

Aamir Khan and Raju Hirani go hand in hand and have an impeccable record not to mention the movie that started breaking the trends of all previous Box Office figures was Aamir Khan and Raj Kumar Hirani combination in 2009 with 3 Idiots .

While Sajid Nadiadwala, who made his directorial debut with Kick, Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez stood at the second spot with Kick.

Shah Rukh Khan retained the number three spot with Chennai Express, directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Gauri Khan for Red Chillies Entertainment, which also starred Deepika Padukone.

With King Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah coming together for a heist and dance adventure, ‘Happy New Year’ has reached the fourth spot.

Happy New Year which had a record breaking opening day & weekend in India, was released in 40 countries across various international markets and opened with approx. USD 8.1 million.

PK on Bigg Boss 8: Salman to don Aamir’s transistor?

Just a few days back, Aamir Khan had chuckled at the teaser launch of PK, saying that his transistor would look good on Salman Khan. Now, speculations are rife that Salman will be donning the transistor in order to promote PK on his show, Bigg Boss 8.

While none of this is on the record yet, one might safely assume that dear friend Salman will be doing what he had done before the release of Aamir’s Dhoom 3 – he’ll bring PK, too, on his show. The last time, Sallu had used Aamir’s famous bowler hat from Dhoom 3 as an accessory while hosting an episode of Bigg Boss 7. Aamir, on his part, returned his friend’s gesture by beginning a countdown on Twitter before Salman’s Jai Ho hit the theatres.

These two Khans of Bollywood have mostly shared a healthy business relation, too, by promoting each other’s films as and when they have been able to. This time around, Salman even had talks of Happy New Year on his show, which, as the entire Bollywood fandom knows well, has not-so-good-friend Shah Rukh Khan in the lead.

Going by the Kick star’s ways, Aamir’s PK doesn’t seem to be left behind as far as being promoted on live television is concerned. And most fans of Salman would like to believe that the actor would go a step ahead this time around – he will use the transistor, a la, Aamir in the PK poster, in order to promote the film. Well, guess we’ll just have to wait a few more days to find out if that takes place!

Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan & Aamir Khan to come together for Umang 2014!


Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan will come together for the annual police show Umang this year. So do we see this trio perform together on stage? Will the Mumbai cops manage to do what no filmmaker has pulled off ever? Well, this trio will be present at the event, however only the Jai Ho star will dance to his film’s songs along with co-star Daisy Shah. Sallu’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif will perform at this event too. The Goliyon ki Rasleela Ram-Leela jodi, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone too will entertain the audiences separately. Alleged couple Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor will do their Aashiqui 2 act on stage and Kareena Kapoor Khan will also be there to set the stage ablaze.

Yo Yo Honey Singh, B-town’s latest flavour will get the crowds grooving along with Himesh Reshammiya, Shankar Ehsaan Loy. Ace dancers Prabhu Dheva and Varun Dhawan are also expected to perform while the reclusive Ajay Devgn will take to the stage in one of those rare appearances.

However, this platform has had some memorable moments, the last being Kareena-Priyanka sharing warm hugs and performing together after having a cold war that lasted for years. With all three Khans in the same venue hope we will have some moments to cherish, hai na BollywoodLifers?
