Film review: The long goodbye of ‘The Sky Is Pink’3 min read . Updated: 11 Oct 2019, 02:37 PM IST
- ‘The Sky Is Pink’ wraps death in warm vibes
- Shonali Bose’s film stars Zaira Wasim as a terminally ill teen and Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Farhan Akhtar as her parents
A film about the impending death of a terminally ill child, narrated by the dead child from beyond the grave. You can’t lose with a setup like that: even a strictly competent director could push the required buttons and reduce viewers to a sniffly mess. But you can’t win either. No matter how much you pare it down, there’ll always be someone accusing you of manipulating tears from the spectacle of a dying kid. Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink errs on the side of caution, keeping the impending tragedy in view at all times, but wrapping everything in good vibes and the kind of courage you have no option but to admire.
