Hichki is a simple yet meaningful story. Rani Mukherjee delivers an impactful, strong and endearing performance, She gets into the skin of the character with great finesse. The story deals with a woman, who after several interviews and numerous rejections due to Tourette’s syndrome lands a job as a teacher at an elite school. She soon tries to do whatever she can to make her rebellious and troublemaking students realize their full potential.
The screenplay explores anxiety, frustrations and intense emotions with maturity. There is a beautiful balance of emotion and elements of commercial entertainment. The supporting cast was endearing and performed well. It is a movie that stays with you.
Hichki is powerful cinema told beautifully, the movie isn’t perfect but it is surely worth your time.
Also, I strongly believe that Bollywood is ready for female-headed cinema, actor’s like Rani Mukherjee, Kajol, Preity Zinta and Madhuri Dixit deserve to be given beautiful movies, the audiences should support such films so they are given budgets to be part of many great stories
