Secret Superstar is a family-drama movie written and directed by Advait Chandan and produced by Aamir Khan. Starring Zaira Wasim, Meher Vij and Aamir Khan in lead roles, Secret Superstar revolves around a Muslim teenage girl who strongly aspires to be a singer but faces restrictions from her conservative father.
Although Secret Superstar started slow at the box office, but it’s finally picking up at the box office because of the incredible word of mouth. But the release of Golmaal Returns might hurt the BO collection in the upcoming weekend.
But given that it’s produced by Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan, it’s hardly even a surprise that it’s getting such terrific reviews from critics and audience alike. Here’s what they are saying:

However, not all critics praised the movie.
In a review for IANS, Subhash K Jha calls Secret Superstar a “stretched-out ode to wish-fulfilment”.
“Secret Superstar is one of those well-meaning films that keeps reminding you constantly of his well-meaning it is. Many times as I watched Chandan’s (director) panoply of tricks and treats, I felt I was being offered a Christmas deal with Santa Aamir Khan mentoring the film’s 15-year old wanna-shine Zaira Wasim whose brilliance as an actor is far more dazzling than anything that is written into this film to support her dreams,” he wrote.
Audience isn’t just pouring out compliments for Zaira Wasim and Aamir Khan, but for the whole cast. Here’s what the audience is saying.
Absolutely Loved #SecretSuperstar ,
Perfect blend of all the untouched issues that 1 face throughout through d eyes of girl, mom,dadi.

#SecretSuperstar Probably the best movie I watched after 3 Idiots. I don’t need 140 characters. Only one word for this movie: “Outstanding”.

Zaira-Meher vij were brilliant. Aamir's impeccable comic timing brings back memories of Rangeela-Ishq-AAA. #SecretSuperstar
