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 »
On the first viewing, I was too distracted by the simplicity of the plot, the characters' need to pontificate all too often and the old-world Bollywood technique of emotional manipulation to tug at your heartstrings. I found it to be an average film.
But after a second viewing (which I was drawn to for no conceivable reason), I was moved by the story and the connection between the characters came across in a much more effective way. The teacher does not seek to impress/command to the students but be like a guide and inspire them while being "at their level". Don't be fooled, the film's power is in its simplicity.
