With ‘The Sky Is Pink’ filmmaker and writer Shonali Bose brings to the silver screen the real-life story of Aisha Chaudhary who died at the age of 17 battling a rare immune deficiency disorder that affected her body’s ability to fight infections. The role of Aisha (who wrote the book ‘My Little Epiphanies’) is played by Zaira Wasim.
The film is narrated by her as she tells us about her mother Aditi (Priyanka Chopra Jonas), father Niren (Farhan Akhtar) and older brother Ishaan (Rohit Saraf). She takes us through the family’s struggles, resilience, ups, downs, and eventual acceptance.

#TheSkyisPink – Intermission.
Its like a Depressing tale unfolding infront of your eyes, moves you, makes you cry but are you ready to see unfiltered, unadulterated emotions on screen is the question to ask.
Farhan – Priyanka – Zairam wasim all three should be proud.

I might come across biased, but each frame she was in I was reminded of my Mother who lost her Son few years ago.

A Roller Coster Ride of Feelings.
If you are sad then go watch it to get practical yet motivational messages of life.
If you are in happy mood, then don’t watch it now, but watch it later maybe!@FarOutAkhtar you are genious at playing emotional role!

If you love your family then #TheSkyIsPink is a must watch for you. It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, all at the same time.

However, many cine buffs felt that the movie dragged on quite a bit, the soundtrack was average and that some parts (like Aisha’s narration) were inspired by earlier Hollywood movies.

On my way to @tiff_net today. Can't wait for the rest of the team to join me for the premiere on the 13th. So excited for the amazing early reviews & to share this with the world! #TheSkyIsPink @faroutakhtar @zairawasim_ @rohitsaraf10 @shonalibose_ #RonnieScrewvala @rsvpmovies #SiddharthRoyKapur @roykapurfilms @purplepebblepictures #SKGlobal
#TheSkyIsPink has been seen! The second half of the before the interval part made me sleep 🙈 but the part after the interval, pretty decent! And yes, realised how much @priyankachopra was missed in a Bollywood film!

Just wanna say straight point
Those who relate to this movie for them this is emotional rollercoaster
Those who don't they will find it dragged
If you wanna go for beautiful family movie go for it ….#TheSkyIsPink

The sky is pink is the shittiest movie. Couldn't be more crap. Mixture of many Hollywood movie. Acting is pretty bad too.
— Kabir (@WashingKarma) October 11, 2019
This movie #TheSkyIsPink is total waste of time, money & energy. I can't understand who made such chutiya movies.either the makers are on heavy depression or under drugs ka nasha.. #PriyankaChopra & #FarhanAkhtar r look like old Couple.. @kamaalrkhan #AmitabhBachchan #WarReview

Now that the janta’s verdict is in, will you go and watch this film or go for Hrithik Roshan starrer ‘War‘ instead?
