Critic Reviews

This is a film with which every Indian student and parent will be able to relate. Kudos to the makers for highlighting the way education is being turned into a business (which only the rich can afford) in our country.

This class isn’t part of the usual Bollywood curriculum, and we suggest that you sign up for it. Admissions open to all.

‘Hindi Medium’ is not a film, it is an experience! The film might come across as a children’s film but it is recommended to each and every strata of society. A must watch! You will surely come out of the theatres with tears of joy.

Despite its flaws, the film is still relevant and successfully touches upon a relevant issue.

Most of it works. Some of it doesn’t. While being crowd-friendly, the film lapses into simplicities, such as that of seeing only virtue in the poor, while the rich usually comprise pretentious a-holes.

It isn’t possible to completely dislike Hindi Medium. So, ignore its hiccups and watch it for the relevance of the questions it poses and the remarkable quality of the acting.

As usual, it’s the marvelous Irrfan who keeps us watching. His is a fine, well-judged performance, which rises above the lines

Despite its shortcomings, the film is never unwatchable and benefits enormously from a winning performance by Irrfan Khan who makes his every moment on screen count.
