Cake, starring Aamina Sheikh, Sanam Saeed and Adnan Malik, has won many hearts in Pakistan over a year ago.
The box office hit made its way to Netflix this month and is now receiving recognition beyond borders.
I owe @NakuulMehta for recommending #Cake on @NetflixIndia Gosh! My eyes are still wet. What a great film & incredible actors. @aaminasheikh @sanammodysaeed @adnanmalik (I hope I got the right one.) The Amma and Abba are just superlative performers. #AsimAbbasi please take a bow.

Finally watched #Cake, a gem of a film from across the border (also edited by one of Hindi cinema’s best). Heart-wrenchingly beautiful portrayal of complex families. Please watch before it is taken off @NetflixIndia pic.twitter.com/TlsyAv50uy

Watched the very heartwarming #CakeTheFilm on @NetflixIndia over the weekend and it filled my heart. Beautiful writing & direction by @IllicitusProduc. Loved hearing words like “Chamchicchad” make their way into the dialogues. Pure gold.

‘Cake’ on @NetflixIndia is a story of unspoken love between a dysfunctional family.Stunning performances by @adnanmalik @sanammodysaeed@aaminasheikh and the rest of the cast will leave you spell bound. ‘Cake’ is to Pakistan what ‘Monsoon Wedding’ was to India. MUST WATCH.

Set in Karachi, the story revolves around two sisters dealing with old secrets as one lives abroad and the other is ‘left’ behind. They must realise the only way for the family to move forward is by moving back.
