Storyline

Delhi-based math teacher Santosh Duggal drives a scooter and lives in a small apartment along with his wife, Kusum; a collegian daughter, Payal; and a school-going son, Sandeep. He also moonlights with a tutoring center called Chatwal Coaching Class in order to make ends meet. Hoping to pacify his family with his income-tax refund, he will instead be compelled to give up its entire amount after his Meerut-based sister Urmi invites them over to a wedding. He borrows a car from a neighbor, Farooqui, and, after a rather dramatic trip, is forced to compensate him as the car gets damaged. Unable to bear taunts that he cannot afford a car, he decides to buy one. It is this decision that will force Payal to seek employment in a call center. Sandeep will confess that he has been gambling, which leaves Santosh with no alternative but to consider accepting bribes from students and risk being exposed on live TV.

Excellent depiction of Teacher's state in India!!
6 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The portrayal of Mr. Duggal of a honest, hard-working teacher is amazing. Any teacher looks forward to appreciation and respect of his hard-work and efforts towards making a student realizing his potential. This is hardly recognized by parents/guardians. They think teaching is another way of making money, whereas that is not true. Loved the way director and script-writer projected the thoughts of common man towards the noble profession of teaching.

Another aspect that really makes movie special is the exploration of parent-children relationship. Parents sometimes forget that they are also equally responsible as much as a child for going astray.

Fine approach to describe state of teachers in our country though I don't completely agree with the climax.
