Hichki Movie Review

Hichki, is a mixed bag, but a mixed bag of good, mostly. Directed by Siddharth Malhotra (not the actor), who directed We are Family in 2010, it see Hichki: Some Hiccups, But a Joy Ride.

Hichki, is a mixed bag, but a mixed bag of good, mostly. Directed by Siddharth Malhotra (not the actor), who directed We are Family in 2010, it seemed like an experimental decision by Yash Raj Films. A studio with so much money and Out-of-Work Daughter-in-Law, it was no big deal. After her marriage, Rani Mukherjee starred In Mardani, an unconventional role. And this was continued here too.

An adaptation of Brad Cohen’s autobiography, Front of the Class: How Tourette Syndrome Made Me The Teacher I Never Had, this movie was made after YRF acquired rights to the novel. The movie revolves around Naina (Rani Mukherjee), who has Tourette Syndrome, and who wants to be a teacher. After a lot of struggle, she gets her dream job in a highly reputed school, but with the worst class imagined.

In some instances, it reminded me of Vin Diesel’s ‘The Pacifier’. The simplicity of the script where the leader has to win the trust of his colleagues to succeed together made the movie predictable, which is one of the downsides, but still, Rani Mukherjee and the children seemed fresh as Spring.

The fact that Hichki covers its flaws by improving other aspects is what makes Hichki a Winner in my eyes.

Considering this was a movie with a teacher with speech disorder teaching slum kids in a High Society School, this movie needed some eccentric and highly varying music, which, I am happy to say, Jasleen Royal and Hitesh Sonik Delivered.

These are the small details that make many scenes in the movie so lively, even though they are redundant.

Like I said, the movie’s concept isn’t basically new to the core, but it’s the fresh approach of the director and the performances of Rani Mukherjee as well as the kids, that gives the movie a fresh feel, which ultimately acts as a saving grace for the movie.

Overall, like I said, Hichki is a winner. It may not please everyone, but it is sure going to make you feel nostalgic with a trip down your memory lane to the good old days of school.
