Critic Reviews

“The film is overlong, stuffed with too many subplots, and far from subtle. Yet it keeps us consistently invested in both Insiya and Najma’s journeys.” – Rajeev Masand | News18
Topic and matetial is nothing new here, same old battling for girl child rights, it has been done earlier. “But what makes this movie stand out is the adventurous narrative that keeps you rooted and guessing” – Meena Iyer | Times of India
It’s a simple movie with any unexpected storytelling. But “Secret Superstar’s biggest asset is Aamir Khan. His comedy despite being slapstick in nature, is worth noticing. Zaira Wasim lives up to the expectations and the film has a message.” – Rohit Vats | Hindustan Times
It’s not a perfect movie but shares a very good message. “This is all you need to know about Secret Superstar, a simple film that is unashamedly saccharine and manipulative, yet has the ability to surprise us in ways small and large.” – Raja Sen | NDTV
“In the end, it doesn’t turn out to be the story of a particular family. Instead, people can relate to it in one way or another.” – Raghav Jaitly | Zee News
