The ‘Glitz’ Factor
The first half is totally engaging as well as entertaining. The chemistry of Bilal Ashraf and Mahira Khan is a treat to watch. These scenes set the right mood for the second half of the film. The entire first half is breezy as well as full of hilarious dialogues.
Bilal Ashraf acting
Bilal Ashraf wins it all in this gamble! He has won back his die-hard fans. Just with his sheer effort of making something that any mainstream superstar would never imagine risking, he has redeemed himself.
Bilal’s character in the film titled Sameer is a person well-conscious of his stardom. He’s a poor team player, fashionably late, and out for number one. Despite his father’s fame and success, he never received his father’s assistance, which makes him strive to be larger and better. Sameer want to demonstrate us the significance of prioritizing family, friends and loved ones over achievement, but he also points out the distinction between a star and an artist.
Mahira Khan’s Acting
By the dint of her hard work and happy-go-lucky attitude in life today Mahira Khan is a phenomenon all over the world. She looks beautiful and does full justice to her character. She dances her heart out in a traditional Ghaagra Choli in ‘ Noori ‘ on the one side and wears some exquisite Ball Gowns, clothes and Sarees on the other.
“It is a passion project. People ask me why I’ve taken it up, but I can’t help it, my heart’s in it,” said Mahira Khan earlier in an interview with ILS.
Alizay Shah in Super Star
Alizah Shah, a sparkling 18-year-old, is the fodder that will will keep you laugh this Eid. With her impeccable comic timing, she owns the film’s most enjoyable and engaging moments. Her character in the film as Chutki is remarkable.
The mastermind behind Superstar’s exceptional music and screen play is none other than Azaan Sami Khan. Having music in his DNA, Azaan provides us some of latest era’s finest melodic songs. The songs beauty is that each track moves the narrative forward, focuses on telling the tale, and never makes the goers of the film feel unsuitable for the scenario.
‘Superstar’ is a good scoring attempt which is worth watching for its theme and great performances.
