Goofs

About 40 minutes into the movie, Naina Mathur draws two long lines, and a third smaller line between them after breaking the tip of the chalk. When she tells the students that they have just 4 months until the final exams, the middle line in the background is clearly larger in size. Then at the next part where she asks students to decide what they have to do, the middle line is smaller again. See more »

HICHKI is a LOW budget film, which will leave a HIGH impact on the audiences thru the word of mouth.
25 March 2018 | by Natasha0705See all my reviews

Duration : 116 Minutes Genre : Drama

Rani Mukerji : She plays Naina Mathur, the teacher suffering from Tourette Syndrome. Rani Mukerji gives an award winning comeback with this one, one of her most challenging roles after Black. The scenes between her and the 14 rebelling students were applause worthy, heart warming and eye - tearing.

Story : Hichki's plot is not only about a teacher with a speech defect (Tourette Syndrome) who decides to teach these 14 unprivileged students, but it also teaches us about education equality in the system. Hichki (hiccups) here wasn't only referred as a physical disorder but also signified the hurdles that EVERYONE has in their life, and how one decides to overcome it.

Music : The tracks of Hichki are below average. No Favorites.

Overall HICHKI is a LOW budget film, which will leave a HIGH impact on the audiences thru the word of mouth.
