Hindi Medium starts out on a right note but the need to teach you a lesson is pushed and pushed in your face until you are weary. But Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar in 'branded' clothes and blingy accessories will make you smile

A well-written script with Irrfan at his usual best
Madhureeta Mukherjee, Economic Times
So yeah, to reiterate, as you head towards the end, the stretches turn into slips. But then you don't mind that very much, given that the medium is the message itself. And the picture very passionately makes a point that could well be a polished mirror to the audience before it. I'm glad I caught it.

Hindi Medium puts this idea in such a manner that it does not feel bitter rather it seems like a sweet pill that you won’t mind taking. The movie does not show Hindi as linguistic supremo rather has tried to focus on English mania in India.

So between a poorly directed Hindi Medium and Arjun Kapoor’s broken English in Half Girlfriend, you really don’t have much of a choice. I feel you buddy.
Lokesh Dharmani, Masala
On the whole, HINDI MEDIUM looks at the workings of the education system. It is a relevant and topical film that makes you laugh and get emotional at the same time. At the Box Office, the movie will be appreciated by the classes as well as the masses. Strongly recommended.

Laxman Utekar’s effective cinematography and Sachin-Jigar’s music go well with Sreekar Prasad’s fine-tuned crisp editing. The film “Hindi Medium” leaves behind those who have studied in the medium of their mother tongue to remember those days of quick comprehension and competitive spirit unfound in modern day’s English medium schools.

Hindi Medium works because it manages to stretch itself beyond its scrubby elements, easy half-baked jokes, lessons about consumerism and our love for English, into a simple story about a boy who would do anything to see his girl smile
