Hats off to Priyanka Chopra to act excellently as a mother of two teenagers: After millions of her fans much awaited Priyanka's movie after marriage to Nick Jones has hit the screens today.
But she dared to chose the character of the mother of two teens and acted excellently to bring in the real character before our eyes. It is a commendable performance by Priyanka as the mother of the ill-fated teen.
She also excels as the lovely wife and middle-aged family women. In one scene, she advices her son Ishaan in the movies played by Rohit Suresh Saraf, which justifies the movie title and a splendid scene.

The storyline of The sky is pink: It is a biography of a dead teenager Aisha from the grave in her voice. It starts from the time of her mother, knowing her to be conceived. But the husband character warns Aditi played by Priyanka to abort.
It is because the previous child was dead to SCID or severe combined immunodeficiency disease. But Aditi goes on to give birth to Aisha, and the whole story is about the love, struggle, and life of the family with the ill-fated child.
The movie ends with her death as a teenager. It is a good plot for excellent acting and directing skills in the movie. But the slow pace and occasional humor fail to uplift the sober mood of the film.
The sky is pink is sure the film for those who love life, love, and classic movies.
