Aao Wish Karein – movie review

Every kid wishes he could grow up quicker


Aao Wish Karein, movie review

Aao Wish Karein is actor Aftab Shivdasani’s debut as a film producer bears a striking resemblance to the Hollywood flick Big.

Mickey (Aftab Shivdasani) was on the threshold of being a teenager. His life was almost like a fairy tale, a beautiful family, best buddy ‘Bonnie’ and his angel on earth – Mitika. Mickey was head over heels in love with Mitika (Aamna Shariff). Aao Wish Karein movie review…

If fairies walked on the surface of earth, then they would look like Mitika. The whole neighborhood thought the same. She was simple, beautiful and down to earth. Did she know Mickey? No, but she did notice his wicked T shirt. Then how would Mickey and Mitika ever become friends? For that she would have to believe in Fairy-tales, and eventually she did.

But there was a little problem. Mickey was 12 and Mitika was 22. It was the worst day of his life when his whole world changed. He discovered he was an orphan and his first attempt to propose to Mitika, she called him ‘a kid’.

Mickey ran aimlessly from the harsh reality.
Tired and drained of all emotions he sat all by himself until an Angel Hitchcock (Johny Lever) read his sad story from the dried up patterns of his tears.

“Bad things happen to good people, but my dear Mickey good things always follow”. Hitchcock philosophized. Mickey was felling so low that he wished for a Miracle. He wished – “I want to become big”. That night he walked into his house feeling almost like a stranger, tired and drained. He dozed off to sleep only to wake up the next morning and his whole life changed. He woke up to a Miracle, but was this a blessing or a curse?

Mickey trusted his best friend Bonnie whole heartedly and was always seeking his advice. Bonnie the ever helpful does so with some positive solutions to Mickey’s problems and in the process witnesses Mickey’s life become a fairy-tale.

Do you think fairies and Angels exist in cyber age? Yes they do exist, but only if you believe in them. Hitchcock (Johny Lever) is just another ordinary clown, who keeps popping in at unexpected corners at unexpected times. It is said that the guardian always can guide you, but not choose your path for you. Hitchcock always throws choices at you in riddles, but it’s up to you to believe, as Hitchcock always says “If you believe in fairy-tales, you become a part of them.”

Aao Wish Karein doesn’t preach anything, it isn’t a big budget film with superstars. It is simply an amazingly sweet movie, which makes you laugh and cry and certain points.

Aaftab Shivdasani acts well as a grown up with a heart and mind of kid. Aamna is a fairy, while Johny Lever as the angel is first-rate in Aao Wish Karein. Rati Agnihotri is good. Yatin Karyekar and Rohan Shah as the kids, are full of energy.

Aao Wish Karein’s director Glen Barretto has handled the film quite well, especially the scenes between Aftab and Johny Lever. Another positive thing about this flick is that is shows the beautiful locales of Himachal Pradesh and Goa and appears convincing as a fairy tale.

There are several funny moments in this good and refreshing film Aao Wish Karein.
