Rani Mukerji Gets Full Marks But This Film Is Not A Class Act
It can make you nostalgic about your school days and remind you of your favourite teacher. This one definitely deserves good grades.

Take all the underdog students and hero teacher films and add a dose of Right To Education and a give the teacher Tourettes so we also learn to empathise with differently abled people. The film checks all the boxes of stereotypes and yet only a couple of scenes manage to touch you. It's neither Dangerous Minds, nor is it To Sir With Love. Rani Mukherji needed a stronger, smarter script.

Hichki's greatest handicaps are its predictability and sentiment
