Angrezi Medium, 2020

Angrezi Medium is a comedic drama film starring Irrfan Khan, Radhika Madan, Deepak Dobriyal, and Kareena Kapoor Khan. It is a sequel to the 2017 film Hindi Medium. Champak (Irrfan Khan), who was born and raised in the Rajasthani city of Udaipur, is raising his only daughter, Tarika (Madan), who is set to graduate from high school and go on a new academic adventure. But, unlike her father, she doesn’t want to limit her goals to the neighbourhood where she grew up; she wants to see what else is out there. Champak gives in to his daughter’s demands, oblivious to the consequences, but things swiftly spiral out of control when it comes to paying the enormous bills.

Along with the amusing subplots and sequences, the film revolves around this concept and sends a social message about how a single father goes to tremendous lengths to fulfil his daughter’s desire, despite society’s prejudices. Madan was praised for her portrayal of the character, and the film even marked her rise in the acting industry. It is available on Disney Plus Hotstar.
