The Sky Is Pink- A Review

October 17, 2019

Co-written and brilliantly directed by Shonali Bose (Margarita With A Straw) The Sky Is Pink is, at its heart, a love story. It is the story of three very different kinds of love. The romantic relationship between a strikingly normal married couple. The love between parents and their terminally ill child, and the love between two siblings.

The film is based on the true life story of the late Aisha Chaudhary and her family. Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar are brilliant as her parents. Rohit Suresh Saraf plays her brother Ishaan as a strikingly normal teenage boy and Zaira Wasim plays the teenage motivational speaker Aisha, who narrates the story of her strikingly normal family.

Her parents are each other’s first love. Her mother is strong, independent and about as far from traditional as an Indian female could be. Everything might have been perfect for this family- except that Aisha was born with a rare, terminal condition, SCID.

She spends most of her short life in hospital or at appointments. However, in between all this the family finds time to make memories, have fun, and Aisha even experiences a teenage breakup.

With an upbeat yet beautiful soundtrack, this movie has something for everyone.

The thought of losing a child would move any loving parent to tears. The thought of losing a sibling of a similar age is heartbreaking for anyone who has ever known that bond. And anyone who has ever had to think about death while their parents still live would hope that they would be left with the loving support that the Chaudhary family clearly has.

I recommend this movie highly to anyone and everyone.
