Hichki, directed by Siddharth Malhotra, is a heartwarming movie revolving around Naina Mathur (played by Mukerji) and her relentless efforts towards bringing about a change in the students’ perception about themselves and their lives. Its simplicity is the USP of the film. Read on to know five reasons why you must look forward to watch the movie.

No disorder can stop you from achieving your dreams

In the movie, Rani Mukherjee has a neurological condition called Tourette syndrome. This forces her to involuntarily make some strange noises. After facing innumerable rejections at interviews and humiliation from society at large, she manages to not only secure a teaching job for herself but also transforms the lives of a bunch of rowdy students by steering their lives in the right direction. Naina doesn’t let her problem affect her teaching prowess.

Hard work and focus, always triumphs

The students Naina teaches belong to the less-privileged backgrounds. Their living conditions compel them to look for menial jobs after school, leaving them disinterested in academics. Rani, through her determination and never -say die attitude, encourages them to study and also helps them acknowledge and eventually overcome their fears. Contrary to everyone’s expectations, the students slog day and night and even score decent marks in the final exams. In the end, two of the students are even honoured with the prestigious Prefect badge.

Using unconventional methods to teach

Rani adopts a myriad of innovative techniques to help her students in grasping difficult concepts. She throws boiled eggs at them to introduce them to parabolas and even plays basketball to explain potential energy. Her methodologies are so unique that even the so-called brightest students of other sections are fascinated and express their desire to learn that way. It is due to her unconventional approach and constant motivation that proved to be an aid in clearing their exams.

For portraying a beautiful student-teacher relationship.

Rani Mukherjee’s relationship with her students transformed the moment they started embracing her and her mission to ameliorate their lives. From derogatory remarks to heartfelt compliments, playing pranks to standing up for her, both Rani and her students go through a wonderful journey of understanding and accepting each other. It reaffirms our belief in the fact that the student-teacher relationship is indeed the most cherished one. Towards the end of the movie, the scene when Naina retires from her teaching job and is surrounded by all those whose lives she had touched over the years is a heartwarming one.

There are no bad students. There are only bad teachers.

While there are stark differences in the circumstances in which children grow up, one thing that’s common among all is their ability to dream, work on their talents, develop their potential and achieve whatever they want to. With the right encouragement and guidance, all children can grow up to become successful adults. They need a mentor to help them channelise their energy in the right direction. Besides assisting them in academics, Rani also helps them spiritually by motivating them to think big and chase their dreams.
