Storyline

The movie focuses on existing malpractices in country's education system, the whole concept of buying your way through education, jobs and earnings. Even with an evolving education system, the country faces scams like SSC and HSC paper leaks, CBSE re-examination, Vyaapam, etc. The movie tries to shift the attention of people to understand the vulnerability of hardworking and gifted students who get left out.

'My child always comes first in class', this syndrome has truly ruined everything.
20 January 2019 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

I saw this in a theatre with my teenage son who wants to do Engineering. Since this film is focussed on the subject of education n the pressure surrounding it, I am glad I saw this with my son. The film is enlightening n entertaining. Hashmi's acting is praiseworthy. Here, he looked n acted very sober n intelligent compared to his previous glamourous roles. He is famous for two things, songs n smooches n this film does have both of em but very mildly. Hashmi shud be commended to do a movie like this which is so opposite to the regular Bollywood trash, minus the item songs (which is Hashmi's forte), minus the awful gravity defying action sequences, minus the ridiculous six pack abs, etc. Inspite of the budget, the film is very well made. The end speech in the courtroom did make some sense regarding the deserving candidate n the twist was kinda good. This film is anyday better than the awful Simmba.
