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.— Kubbra Sait (@KubbraSait) May 21, 2019
Watched Cake on @NetflixIndia & I'm an emotional wreck. Thank you @IllicitusProduc for taking me into an absolutely disconnected yet beautiful world. A fabulous ensemble headlined by @aaminasheikh @sanammodysaeed @adnanmalik & some very special senior actors. #Cake is GOLD.— Nakuul Mehta (@NakuulMehta) May 20, 2019
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— Sohini (@Mittermaniac) May 22, 2019
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.— Shephali Bhatt (@ShephaliBhatt) May 20, 2019
'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.— VT-VLO (@Vinamralongani) May 21, 2019

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.
