Movie Rating: on the scale of one to ten I give it a 5.



The movie ‘A Wish’ is about a woman who is a Petty Trader who has no education and has only one WISH and that is to see her child go to school and enjoy the opportunities she never had. She has to struggle to achieve her dreams struck against all odds; after finding out she has a few years to live after being diagnosed with cancer.




The Movie ‘a Wish’ is a good movie to watch. What I really like about the movie is that the story line of the movie really merged with title; that is the only wish of the main character was to send her child to school despite her challenges.

The bad thing about this movie was that the acting was just terrible, they actors/actress were trying so hard to act but acting is supposed to be a natural stuff which made the movie not so enjoyable and somewhat long. And also there were some unnecessary scenes in the movie. The movie was about awareness of cancer fine; that means they should have gone straight to the point instead of playing the audience along.
