Film: Cake Click for more info

Apart from a few shaky plot developments, Cake was actually quite good. It was a bit of a Kapoor and Sons lite, exploring the reunion of a family taken apart (and put back together again) by tragedy and deceit. The excellent acting came second to the production, with some of the most mature cinematography taking centre stage, and overall the story was a solid one.

There are flaws however: some mild schizophrenia from some of the characters and some slight pacing and timing issues - these led to the aforementioned shaky plot developments, but overall you would be able to look past them if you wanted to.

If this is a sign of Pakistani film-making to come then I can't wait. For now though Cake gets a firm recommendation in my book.
