    "Khan was wrongly accused of being a terrorist in the US which was the core of this story. I love the dialogue exchange and how the writer made it a twist in the ending. "

    "This movie was very interesting because it focuses on youth in the Islamic world rather than politics and adult issues. I believe it would be a good movie for Muslim children to watch as well as non-Muslims to see that culture can be very different than what they expect."

    "This film made me cry- in a good way. Best time to watch during Ramadan. Iqbal made a way to my heart with his dedication to being a cricket player despite his condition as a mute and deaf. "

    "Story is great. Cinematography isn't stellar, production values lacking. No subtitles. Sound unevenly mixed. Diverse cast, stunning story and strong acting performances. Great during Ramadan or anytime. "
