What's GOOD- After a long time here comes a family film which will appeal to everyone.Director Saket Chaudhary's vision of showing a Hypocrite society does work .The story deals with how parents struggle to get their child in a English Medium School.India is suffering from a disease called 'ENGLISH'. It is more of a status symbol than a language.We live in a society where u will be mocked if you are not good in English.The message here is conveyed in a humorous way. The first half simply concentrates on humour.But the last 45 minutes of the movie is on a serious note & to be honest those 45 minutes are the best in a 2hr 30 minutes long film. Of the cast-IRRFAN & SABA QAMAR are brilliant.They are almost perfect as parents who want to send their daughter in a English Medium school. The Best thing in 'Hindi Medium' is the performance of DEEPAK DOBRIYAL. He is PERFECT.I cant even imagine anyone in that role.As a generous poor man, this performance of him was the best supporting performance of 2017. Rest of the cast in supporting role performed ably. The screenplay is very good & the direction by Saket Chaudhary is good.This attempt of Saket is better than his earlier work 'Shaadi ke side effects'.
What's Bad-Some scenes involving humour or emotions don't work .But the overall impact of film is very good. Overall-I think every Indian will relate with this film. I m going with 7/10 with one extra star for DEEPAK DOBRIYAL's performance which makes it 8/10.Its a SATISFYING & ENTERTAINING watch.
