The movie cake is a simple movie with a story revolving around a Sindhi family. While you watch it, you will feel as if someone has captured the life of a family without having them know about it. The acting is so real and fresh. Everything about the movie from the moments between the family members, to the cute romance between the parents and the fights and everything, is extremely realistic. The movie ‘Cake’ is a wonderful production and when you watch the movie, you feel connected to it somehow right from the first scene of the movie. Sanam Saeed, Amina Sheikh, Beo Rana, Mohammad Ahmed, and Adnan Malik, all had a unique way with the representation of their characters. The movie is a depiction of the love, anger, and acquaintance between siblings. The movie has no glamor and no exaggeration and this is exactly what the audiences loved to see in the midst of movies like JPNA and others.  The beauty of this movie is the layers of it which have been presented so simply and in a realistic tone. The storytelling capacity of the movie’s director is one thing we can not stop praising.

However, we believe it is an advanced concept for people who may have grown up watching Bollywood films and hence they may not like it. The movie is wonderfully made. It certainly has raised the standards of what can be produced in Pakistan. If you have been looking for some best movies to watch, this has to be your pick.

If you have not already, do watch this spectacular movie for its realism which is definitely going to leave a long-lasting impact on you.
