Music and filming

“The Sky is Pink” is another production of the producers of well-known movies “Barfi” and “Dangal. For direction, the production house selected Shonali Bose. The renowned lyricist Javed Akhtar penned the songs of this movie. While the renowned music composer Pritam gave music to this movie.

The shooting was done in Mumbai and London.

Final Verdict:

Though the story is great, the screenplay failed to touch the heart of the audience. So I would rate it 3 out of 5 stars. The performance of all the actors was nice. But still, something is left. There is something amiss in the screenplay which prevented its success.
