Every kid imagines what it would be like to be an adult. He wishes he could grow up quicker. Of course, once he grows up, a small part of him wishes he could go back to his childhood days. Quite an irony, isn't it? There's a line in Aao Wish Karein that goes, 'If you want to be a part of a fairy tale, it's important that you believe in it [fairy tale].' The statement is applicable for everyone desirous of watching Aao Wish Karein.

In terms of concept, Aao Wish Karein bears a striking resemblance to the Tom Hanks starrer Big [1988]. A decade-and-a-half ago, the Salman Khan - Sridevi starrer Chandramukhi also tackled a similar theme. In that respect, the concept isn't alien at all.

It's not sacrilegious if a film bears an uncanny resemblance to another film [it could be a coincidence], but films like these need to be well-structured and most importantly, supported by incredible actors who can make you believe in fairy tales. Also, the makers ought to take a stand at the very outset: Should it be targeted at kids or youth? You just cannot sit on the fence. In this case, you don't know if Aao Wish Karein is aimed at the kids or is it a breezy romantic flick, targeted at the youth. All said, Aao Wish Karein has some endearing moments, but not enough to salvage it.
