 Hichki had the potential to be more than just a classroom saga. It does touch upon Naina’s personal struggles and her conflicted relationship with her father. But it could’ve explored these aspects a lot more. For all its shortcomings, the movie still has plenty of freshness, insights and emotional intelligence. It can make you nostalgic about your school days and remind you of your favourite teacher. This one definitely deserves good grades.

 There have been several films before on the difference a teacher can make to the lives of underprivileged students given up as lost causes in schools. Almost always, as they capture the transformation of these students on screen, the films work. Hichki does well in placing this story within a uniquely Indian contex

This kind of To Sir With Love/Dead Poets Society/School Of Rock setup would be enough, but Hichki goes for more. Based on the true-life story of Brad Cohen, Rani Mukerji plays a teacher with Tourette’s Syndrome, punctuating her life with uncontrollable vocal tics and wrist movements. A fine actress, Mukerji does well to make her condition appear natural and entirely involuntary, but the story pivots too far away from the students’ (and teachers’) acceptance of the syndrome. Soon it becomes merely an actorly affectation, with hardly any bearing on the storytelling.

 Rani Mukerji takes a cue from these films and blends them with a contemporary issue. To Malhotra’s credit, he has got the formula correct. Hichki is good enough to make you cry multiple times. Also, the film’s is well paced. At 118-minutes, there are not many dull scenes. Then there is Rani Mukerji, sassy, confident and completely aware of her circumstances. She operates within the boundary and tries her best to not let the film deviate from the central theme.

All said and done, Hichki has Rani Mukerji delivering one of the best performances of her career. Watch it for her and the sweet little message makers are trying to give with this one.

Three stars!
