After the special premiere of Hindi Medium on Sunday, it was seemingly obvious that this Saket Chaudhary directorial is going to create waves among critics and filmmakers. All this while, the Baahubali fever continued to dominate the box office. But it’s going to face some serious competition this weekend. There’s a positive buzz about Irrfan Khan’s Hindi Medium.
Hindi Medium is a social comedy that lays emphasis on some grave topics of ‘Right to Education’ and ‘confusing elitism with English’. The film comes out as a breath of fresh air where movie buffs were suffocated with too much of obnoxious Bollywood romance and melodrama. Saket Chaudhary got too deep into the grammar of emotions and reality while dealing with English-fanaticism prevailing in the country. It speaks what it needed to, in full volume.
The movie is slated to hit the screens on 19 May 2015, but the special screenings had already garnered much applause and acclaim. Here’s what some of the popular personalities and movie critics have to say about ‘Hindi Medium’.
Popular Bollywood movie critic Taran Adarsh showered praises about the film and the lead actor Irrfan Khan, on his Twitter account. He also posted an exclusive tweet praising the actor’s versatility and finesse.
Sudhish Kamath, a film critic also spoke volumes about the film, lauding the star cast’s acting prowess and script.
