    Bollywood needs more films like Hichki; films which cater for the people, for amateur audience, highlighting and bringing forth issues and problems which a layman might not be aware of. This will not only help in adding up to the knowledge but also help in accepting those people as one of us and as humane as we are.

    Hichki brought with it a breath of freshness, both in acting and plot. The sketch of this film goes as Naina Mathur aka Rani Mukerjee, a lady suffering from Tourette syndrome gets herself a teaching job in an elite school, where she has to teach and deal with a class of under-performing students belonging to the extreme backward class who, on being discriminated every single day in school turn notorious and monstrous. But how Naina gracefully puts Tourette on herself as a beautiful accessory by turning her weakness into her biggest strength and overcomes all challenges to help her students realize their true potential is something worth waiting 2 hours and spending for.


    The casting is marvelous. Rani Mukerji’s performance is of another level. The constant knocks on the chin are pure acting, just class-apart. Her performance adds the thump to this story. She perfectly portrays Naina’s personal struggles and her incompatible relationship with her father.

    Young actors who portrayed the rebellious 9F class all do a wonderful job. Harsh Mayar as Aatish, the leader of the mischievous pack is outstanding. Other actors as students in the film are all amazing too. Neeraj Kabi, as the skeptical science teacher, summons just the right amount of reserve in giving life to his character, while Supriya Pilagaonkar as Naina’s doting mother and Sachin Pilgaonkar as her estranged father further layers the story.

    For all its can-be-overlooked shortcomings, the movie still has plenty of freshness, insights and emotional intelligence.


    There are songs but those aren’t captivating enough. You won’t engulf much into the songs.

    Is it a must watch?

    Yes, of course! This film is a no miss.

    There is a reason why films like these don’t do well at the box-office; both in terms of money and audience appreciation. We, as audience don’t feel like going and watching serious or knowledgeable kinda film because “Oh well! Cinema hall mein to item song / bhai ke gaane pe jhoomna banta haina boss!!” Until and unless we accept films like these, directors and producers won’t find the courage to go ahead to make more films like Hichki.

    Kudos to team Hichki!

    Without even thinking once, I’m going with four out of five.
