“Wake Up Sid”; A Tale Of Growing Up

A very watchable movie. Simple script but done very well. The contrast of characters is amazing whether between Sid and Aisha or between Sid’s father and mother. Few of them are very under-stated and others are overboard but it makes a great cinematic theme.

The scene where Sid’s mother tells Sid that she is learning English so that she can be his friend is really touching. There are other good scenes between Sid and Aisha too but nothing is extra-ordinary.
