One of the best movie
12 March 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I missed the movie when it was released, watched it now when the national awards were declared, the movie says that it will take you back to schools. I must admit, it really takes you back to those school days. A very nice movie, excellent direction, brilliant background score and nice star cast, each and every character looks perfect for the role and they have acted it so well, that you get stuck with them. I will recommend for all those who really want to visit there school days again, its something different not those regular school movies we may have seen. I am giving 10 or 10 for Shaala, it really took me to those golden days, which I will miss forever in my life. I must say that any one who went to school will relate this movie with there real school life, this movie is shows the 9th, 10th std students. They have shown it so well, even we use to behave in similar way as shown in the movie. It is the age when you enter a different world! Hats off to the Shaala movie team. Its a worth watch!!
