The Sky Is Pink is a film that audiences have been anticipating for quite a while now. One of the primary reasons being that this is Priyanka Chopra's first Bollywood film after three years. The film recently made its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Going by the first reactions, the film sounds quite promising.
After being screened at the TIFF on Saturday, the film received a standing ovation lasting four minutes. Reviews of the film on Twitter praised Shonali Bose and the other cast and crew members for their work.
The film is based on the love story of a couple narrated by their daughter who suffers from a terminal illness. It seems that the aspect of the film surrounding the illness also touched audiences. One of the film's positive reviews was from a doctor who claimed that the film reminded him why he chose to work in medicine. Others even called the film a tearjerker.
Amazing to hear from the Chaudhary family today which is whom #TheSkyIsPink is based.
