Just wonderful!! I was worried that there were few people in the 4:20pm show. I hope they get a large audience because it's a great movie.

I absolutely loved this movie! I think it had a great story. I even cried. People nowadays only care about things that don't matter that they might think this movie is pointless but people that actually care about true stuff how life really is and how people are know that this movie was great

After a while I was like. We get it you like Springsteen. I like the speech he gave at the end. The gift at the end was touching.

This movie is awesome. Everything you would want to say, or share with the world. It makes you want demand from the world to act the way that we have all agreed at many times in your life that we all have a right to be on the. planet. It doesnt matter who you are, what you are, if you like or dont like someone, something, some place, or whathaveyou. We ate all bound, chained to this world. We cant just close our eyes and travel from one place to another with a thought. We all desire to just get along with everybody else even of we do care for much about certain thinsgs. We just can't figure out how to keep that everyone's focus all the time. Its a powerful movie.

We loved the movie and music just made it that much better. Then to find out it was a true story very authentic makes it even better.

The heart of the film is the father-son bond, but Chadha, a filmmaker long preoccupied with the inner lives of Desi-British girls and women, also gives Javed’s sister (Nikita Mehta) a lovely reveal. If a couple of segments droop in their strict adherence to Manzoor’s biography, it’s certainly forgivable. This movie won’t blind anyone with its innovation, but it’s got plenty to dazzle and delight.

Light is just as faithful to formula as Bend It Like Beckham and just as reliant on its lead's likability; here, newcomer Viveik Kalra radiates enough guileless enthusiasm to carry viewers past the film's rough patches.

While this flimsy coming-of-age drama over-relies on the Boss’s greatest hits for its emotional high points, this remains a likeable and touching story about finding your own voice.
