Raj Batra is a rich man from Delhi’s Chandni Chowk and owns a garment business of dealing with first copies of designer collections. He is a Hindi-speaking, less-educated fellow, whereas his wife Mira is demanding and has done her schooling from an English-medium school. She wants her daughter to sit amongst the best elites in the society, and to ensure that, she goes on a quest to admit her in a high-profile school. How both the parents make it happen is the rest of the story!
- Irrfan Khan shines throughout the movie with his grappling performance and hilarious comic timing.
- Dialogues are perfectly timed as per the situation.
- Saba is a delight to watch on screen as a dominating wife.
- Deepak Dobriyal adds a touch of perfection to the second half and leaves you teary-eyed.
- The movie is the perfect satire on our Indian Education System and drives a lesson to people with closed eyes.
- The girl who plays the daughter is too cute!
- Tilottama Shome as the admission consultant and Amrita Singh as the business-minded principal are perfect in their role.
- Second half has an over-dramatic tone.
- Climax is stretched, and loses out on the interest.
The romantic song at the beginning was quite unnecessary.
A perfect satire, Hindi Medium is a delight to watch. Mainly due to Irrfan Khan!
