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.

Zaira wins you over with a heartfelt act. She’s in splendid form in SECRET SUPERSTAR. It is surely a worthy follow up to her sparkling act in DANGAL. On the whole, SECRET SUPERSTAR is a complete package: refreshing plot, water-tight screenplay, exceptional performances and soulful soundtrack. Strongly recommended!


Rating: 4/5

The first thing I personally did after watching Secret Superstar was to text my mom how much I love her. Watch the film to start believing in your dreams and to know how much your mother loves you. Four stars with lots of love to the entire team!

Zaira Wasim as Insiya is spot on. She is the star of the film and takes to the role with hunger. Secret Superstar is an important film that needs to be watched not just for the  message, but also because it is entertaining and has one of the best performances of the year by Zaira Wasim.

Secret Superstar’s biggest asset is Aamir Khan. His comedy despite being slapstick in nature, is worth noticing. Secret Superstar will still make you laugh and cry with ease. Show some appetite for drama and you have an entertainer at your service.

Fortunately for the film, and us, we are left with young Insiya and her shining face, a beacon of hope for herself and girls in her situation. I liked her enormously, and Wasim plays her with great brio, a mix of sparkle and tentativeness. I wish I liked the film as much.

Although a little over-dramatic towards the end, Secret Superstar effectively strikes the emotional chord. With Zaira Wasim’s fine performance as the lead, this film has very good repeat value.


Rating: 3.5/5

Advait Chandan’s film is a thoroughly rewarding cinematic experience, sweet and thought-provoking in equal measure. Aamir’s presence has given it pre-release visibility, but what gives it staying power through its running time is the strength of its storytelling and conviction.

Secret Superstar is undoubtedly Aamir’s Diwali gift to cinema lovers. It will appeal to the audience of all age groups. If you judge the flick on the entertainment quotient, it falls a lil’ short. But, at the end of the day, the movie is an excellent piece of cinema which brings forward various social issues and the attitude required to deal with them at the same time.


Rating: 4/5

Coming from Aamir Khan Productions, some viewers may expect a lot more from the film. It is a simple, heartfelt story and just that, nothing more. Advait Chandan helms it well but the end may seem unrealistic to some. Isn’t that what movies are all about, though? Take your pick between Golmaal Again and Secret Superstar this week.
