      Mike McCahill Guardian Pakistani cinema has long struggled to match its Indian cousin's commercial reach, but this impressive debut from Asim Abbasi feels like a sound bet, and even quietly revolutionary in places. Rated: 4/5 Mar 29, 2018 Full Review Film Companion Staff Film Companion Abbasi's bold family drama made many sit up and take notice of Pakistani cinema once again. Cake examines dysfunction, masculinity and miscommunication while making you laugh, smile and cry along the way. Oct 27, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Forget Me Not 2009 Embrace Of The Vampire 2013 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/28/23 Full Review Audience Member 'Cake' is one of the most fascinating family movies I have ever seen, second to nothing. And this Pakistani film is a full-blown original which you would be loving for it's emotional warmth and beautiful solace. Yes it tries too hard to entertain you in parts, but mostly it's breezy, warm and affecting to the highest order. Make sure to watch this fine gem on Netflix. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member The best to come out of Pakistani cinemas. Period. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member This is the first time I've watched a Pakistani drama on the cinema and to be honest after 30 minutes I was hoping a meteor would put me out of my misery. The story was very, very, very weak! so much so that this drama has put me off Pakistani movies for life..Thank you Asim Abbasi. This drama had lots of potential, the cast was great but if I were you despite the stellar cast, I would save my money and my precious time and go spend that money watching paint dry. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member was not impressed wirh this movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Loved every bit of it. Not for commercial movie goers but those who want to leave the cinema thinking about their priorities in life, when it come to their parents and family.
