The Sky is Pink has more than one reasons to celebrate. Not only does it features some power-packed actors like Zahira Wasim, Priyanka Chopra and Farhaan Akhtar in the leading roles, it also has an unusual story to tell.
The main talking point of the film ‘The Sky is Pink’ is the fact that it is a comeback of sorts for Priyanka Chopra. After her elaborate wedding to Nick Jonas and various appearances all across the globe, she is back home to Bollywood. Also, Zahira Wasim, who is seen in an important role will be seen after a long time off the silver screen.
Previously, Zahira Wasim was also reported to have declared that she would be quitting Bollywood altogether due to ‘personal’ reasons. However, it is once again great to have these to stellar female performances to have shared the screen space in this movie. Farhaan Akhtar has been known to give subtle yet strong performances in the past. His ease with the craft and the way he slips into the skin of the character he plays has always been his all-time strength.
THE FIRST LOOK
The first look at the trailer of the film was successful in garnering the public’s interest in no time. With Chopra’s star power and the unique plot of the film has the audience wait for the release. The trailer starts with the character of Zahira Wasim on a voice-over, where she explains about her parents and their love story. While the dialogues are simple, however, some of the statements have a bold undertone to it.
This resonates well with young India’s take on relationships and commitments. The story is a Romantic Comedy and has some cute moments as well; like the time when the character of Zahira Wasim is shown asking her mother played by Priyanka Chopra ‘How old were you when you first did it?’ This leaves a shocked and embarrassed Chopra gaping at the boldness of her teenaged daughter.
THE FIRST SONG
The first song of the film ‘Dil Hi Toh Hai’ is easy, breezy and real. The song celebrates love and the chemistry between the characters of Priyanka Chopra and Farhaan Akhtar. This 2 minutes and 23 seconds of romantic number is everything a young couple in the start of their relationship experience. The video of the song shows the lead couple go about the entire town painting it with their colour of love.
The entire video takes the audience through the pair’s journey as a new couple to getting married. It beautifully depicts the various ups and down in a relationship. The melodious voice of Arjit Singh, Nikhil D’souza and Antara Mitra and the wonderful composition of Pritam is worth featuring on your play list.
‘The Sky is Pink’ is a special film in many ways. Under the banner of RSVP Movies, Roy Kapur Films and Purple Pebbles Production, this film promises a much-needed break from the regular Rom-Com genera.
Directed by Shonali Bose and co-produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur, this film has already made its mark as one of the most awaited films of 2019. It tells the story of the couple spanning through 25 years of their lives and the various challenges that they have faced. Told through the eyes of their teenaged daughter played by Zahira Wasim, this story evokes maximum interest when her character declares in the trailer that ‘iss kahaanii ki Villain to main hu…!’.
WHY WATCH ‘THE SKY IS PINK’?
Well, to start with, the story appears to be new and fresh. It is a Rom-Com but with a twist. The star cast is powerful, and the lead couple is, well, un-usual. It is not every day that you get to see Priyanka Chopra and Farhaan Akhatar paired together. What needs to be seen is the chemistry between them and their individual performances as well.
Zahira Wasim has proved her talent in the past with ‘Secret Superstar’ and “Dangal’ and this film will prove if she has a winning streak. However, her talent is undisputed amongst the race of the new-commers. Finally, Priayanka Chopra.
This will be Mrs. Jonas’s ‘back to Bollywood’ venture and she has a lot to offer. Being a global superstar, the film has garnered the mass-appeal already and it will be a no-brainer if it manages to get the global coverage that is expected out of Chopra’s star powers.
