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 »
Definitely an A+ for Rani Mukerji's performance but the lacks characterization
It's wonderful that a new year has passed by and Rani Mukerji finally made a comeback for this film. Hopefully 2018 should go through the same streak especially for a film like this.
So Naina Mathur, a woman and teacher to be with Tourette Syndrome gets rejected from multiple schools within a couple of years until one elite school takes her in. Suddenly, Naina's good luck goes into turmoil when she discovers that her students are making her life miserable by pulling pranks on her and breaking the rules of the school not to mention how judgemental the students are towards Naina's hiccup. How Naina bonds with the students putting them on the right track is basicaly what this film is about.
Siddharth P. Malhotra has done a marvelous job with directing and also writing. He keeps the writing straight on point. The dialogues were consistently said in a toneful way engaging the audience. But some scenes will help the audience determine the climax of the film escalating the predictability of the film.
Characterization is surely an issue because the students portrayed in the film will give the audience the feeling that they have seen such films from before that facilitate things like peer pressure such as seeing kids smoking, drinking, showing bad manners, and gambling. Logic fails are ultimate such as not rusticating the ransacking students or the fact that there's only one teacher teaching everything at once.
Performances were simply outstanding and Rani Mukerji kills it. Her portrayal of Naina Mathur suffering Tourette Syndrome will just knoc your socks off. She was nuanced and rustic throughout the film. Shriya Pilagaonkar was pretty good as the mother of Rani and the guy who played Aatish a.k.a Harsh Nayar was just fabulous.
Music was nice and very simple and Jasleen Royal has been known to making great music. Madamji Go Easy and Oye Hichki are the highlights but definitely not the loop listening expectation.
Overall, Hitcki is a beatuiful school drama based on good performances but it majorly did lack characterization. Definitely should check it out at a theater near you.
3.5/5 - Rani Mukerji's comeback luck
