Secret Superstar shines a spotlight on domestic violence, an issue that's often brushed under the carpet and simultaneously sheds light on how it takes a woman to be a woman's pillar of strength through the shown riveting mother-daughter bond.
Kriti Tulsiani, News 18
Secret Superstar is a bit unbelievable, like Insia’s video getting 30 million views. I mean yeh kuch jyada ho gaya…but these are minor hiccups in an otherwise beautiful film. Go watch it with family this Diwali.
