The story is set in heartland Haryana, and that gives him a passable scope to talk patriarchy without getting too heavy about it.
Some of the best moments are the ones featuring Satish Kaushik & Saurabh Shukla. They are heartwarming and endearing. It’s a mood-lifter for sure! Rajkummar & Saurabh Shukla’s duo does wonders to the film. Don’t plan to watch it, watch it when you don’t have any plans!
The good things about movie gives message of importance of sports in child’s life. Games and sports teach students to co-operate with another and achieve success in life. Women empowerment, the true spirit of teacher who believes in his students. Parents should support their kids who are in sports as studying is important but sports as well. Inspiring dialogue from the movie is Teacher ka kaam hai sikhana … 90 laane wale ko 100 tak toh koi bhi le jaa sakta hai … 10 waale ko 40 tak le jaao toh baat hai. ( A teacher’s job is to teach … anyone can take a student who gets 90% to 100% … but if you can take a student who gets 10% to 40%, then that’s some achievement. ) Overall an average movie to watch.
