If you speak anything wrong in our country, then you are forgiven, but if you speak wrong English then you are called an uneducated person. You will not be asked if you do not know any language in the world, but if you do not speak English you are considered as uneducated. Something similar shows the movie Hindi Medium!
Irfan Khan and Saba Kamar starrer ‘Hindi Medium’ has everything that a viewer needs for recreation. The difficulty of speaking English and not being able to adopt in society is shown in this movie. Along with this, the country’s poverty has also been showed.
This is the story of Raj and Mita Batra who have been studying from the government school. They are rich, they do not lack anything but they do not know English. Both of them want to teach their daughter good, large, English medium school but Delhi’s nursery admissions have tightened the condition of everyone. Now how does Raj and Mita get admission of their daughter or do not even get them? This is the story.
This movie has touched the parts of our country and society that we all know but never talk about. In the film, along with Irfan and Sabah, Tanu Weds Manu’s Pappi G. i.e. Deepak Dobriyal and Actress Amrita Singh are also. There are many more actors along with them and all of them have done a great job together.
Pakistan Actress Saba Kamar debuted in Bollywood with this film and she is less successful as a worried mother. How Irfan Khan can be such a great actor and how to impress me every time I understand and explain it is both difficult work.
The direction of the film is good and the songs are also fine. There is no harm in seeing a simple light-hearted film. If nothing else, then you will get only some happiness and peace of mind and you will get some good learning too. And yes, if you do not know English then no problem!
