Aamir Khan took to Twitter to review Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Shikara. The film hit the screens today.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Shikara hit the screens today (February 7) and the recently released film has been reviewed by none other than Aamir Khan. Aamir has worked with Vidhu in films like 3 Idiots (2009) and PK (2014).
Aamir took to Twitter to share his experience of watching Shikara. The actor began his post by wishing him all the best for Shikara and called the film a “story that needs to be told”.
“Wishing you all the very best Vinod! Shikara is a film about one of the most tragic events in our recent history. A story that needs to be told (sic),” Aamir tweeted.
Before Aamir, Manisha Koirala also reviewed Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Shikara.
Manisha had attended the screening of the film with the director on February 4. She posted a photo of herself on Twitter in which Vidhu can be seen hugging the actress. Sadia, who made her Bollywood debut in Shikara, is also there in the frame.
Manisha called Shikara a “fabulous film” in her post. She also praised the performances by the cast.
She wrote, “Fabulous film #shikara thank you #vinodchopra for making a beautiful film.. this will remain with you long after it’s over.. great music and absolutely top of the line performances by the casts!! I wish this a super success.”
Manisha Koirala has worked with Vidhu Vinod Chopra in 1942: A Love Story (1994) and Sanju (2018). While Vidhu was the director of the 1994 film, he worked as a producer in Sanju.
India Today reviewer Jyoti Kanyal gave Shikara 3 stars out of 5.
“Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Shikara is a film on the plight of Kashmiri Pandits made with the right amount of sensibility and compassion. While it touches hearts in many parts, it also compels you to question if everything was clearly black and white with no shades of grey,” she wrote in the review.
Talking about the debutantes, she added, “The newcomers Sadia and Aadil Khan look beautiful together. While they are irresistible as a young couple, they look a bit awkward in the scenes where they are shown as older people. Adil is more impressive playing the role of an older Shiv Kumar Dhar. Sadia, on the other hand, should be appreciated for the conviction with which she plays the role of an optimistic and supportive wife…”
Shikara is clashing with Malang at the box office which stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, Anil Kapoor and Kunal Kemmu. It is directed by Mohit Suri.
