I have been on OTT platform for a long time, as I have not been into Saas-Bahu serials on television and OTT offered a fresh perspective. The Original series and movies gave chance to new talents, more focus on storyline and character actors rather than only focusing on leads actors. Even ‘A’ list Bollywood actors like Saif Ali khan, Nawazuddin and Abhishek bachhan are now on this platform.
After recommendation from few friends I have even took subscription on ZEE5, and honestly, I do not regret it. I have been glued to it for movies, series specially in regional languages.
One such awesome movie I want to share with you guys today. It’s the latest ZEE5 original movie, directed by none other than Prakash Jha. We all have seen and been fan of many of movies directed by him. Like Gangaajal, Raajneeti, Apaharan and Mrityudand to name a few.
This Movie is –Pareeksha, the final test
Buchhi Paswan by Adil Hussain
Priyanka by Priyanka Bose
Bulbul by Shubham
SP Kailash Anand by Sanjay Suri
The story of the movie is simple. It’s about a father’s struggles and fight to give his child all that he deserves. Without thinking about his own limitations.
The story is about Buchhi a rickshaw puller, who picks up and drops school children to a very high well established Engilsh medium school, Saphire International. His own son Bulbul, goes to a government school and is very bright and intelligent. Buchhi feels that the government school will not do justice to his child’s intellect and wants bulbul to go to the Sapphire. And he promises his son, that he will fulfil his dreams #SapneSachKarenge.
He gets bulbul admitted to the school with lot of struggle, but what follows is a challenging situation for all of them.
Bulbul faces lot of resistance from teachers as well as students, his struggle to fit into the culture of the new school and his fears are real. Buchhi and his wife Priyanka, even starve to save money, as with big school, big expenses will also come. In this fight for money, Buchhi makes some unconventional decisions, which will affect not only his but the entire family’s future.
It’s the acting by Adil and Shubham, that tugs the heartstring. The movie is an emotional rollercoaster. Prakash Jha keeps the audience glued, from the first scene till the end.
The dreams that a father has for his child, are truly displayed by adil Hussain. My heart goes out, while seeing him struggle, for what elite kids take for granted that is getting good quality education.
SP Kailash Anand played by Sanjay Suri, must get a special. He har portrayed real life hero IPS officer Abhayanand. Who teaches and coaches kids in Naxal hit areas of Bihar.
This movie makes us realize the difference of economic background and its effect on the education system.
It’s a must watch movie, if possible, watch it with your kids. Let them understand the struggles people go through to get good quality education.
