Secret Superstar, released on the 19th of October, is already loved by the critics and audiences. The film revolves around a young dreamer who has to fight out of her unfortunate circumstances to become who she wants to be. Starring the Dangal star Zaira Wasim and the perfectionist of Bollywood Aamir Khan, this film is bound to awaken the dreamer inside you.
Insiya, portrayed by Zaira, is a young girl from a strict Muslim household who aspires to be a singer one day. Her father goes as far as tearing her guitar strings to make it apparent that such dreams would not be tolerated under his roof. But Insiya is a firm believer of her dreams, so she wears a burqa to hide her identity from her father before posting videos on YouTube. Soon after her attempts to garner attention succeed as her talent gets noticed by a famous musician Shakti Kumar (Aamir Khan).
The most popular song ‘Main Kaun Hoon’ from the movie may pull at your heart strings with the depth of its lyrics, the phenomenal performance by Zaira mixed with the emotions of a 16 year old singer, Meghna Mishra’s voice. The song might make you question who you really are and what you truly are capable of.
If the plot doesn’t inspire you to pursue your dreams, then the dialogue definitely will. “Dream toh koi bhi dekhta hai, dream dekhna toh basic hai”, this dialogue highlights the key point of the plot i.e. dreams are conventional but what you make of that dream is what sets you apart from the ordinary.
So grab a bowl of popcorn, watch the movie and dare to dream.
