Super 30: Film Review – Hrithik Is Set To Rake In The Numbers

Verdict: This inspirational film oozes with passionate performances.

In the past few years, Bollywood has brought to light journeys of several individuals who were seemingly insignificant, yet their choices, hard work, resilience, and passion set them apart and enabled them to make a recognizable difference in the world as we see and know it. Akshay Kumar‘s Pad Man did it and now Hrithik Roshan‘s Super 30 is a testament to those note-worthy individuals who put blood, sweat, and tears into their every move to be influencers of change.

What’s Super 30 About:

This film is based on the life of Anand Kumar, a brilliant mathematician from a family with little means, located in Bihar. Anand’s passion for mathematics was relentless to the point where he would make back-breaking journeys just to sneak into a college library and study from ‘foreign journals’. His determination lands him a scholarship to Cambridge University, which he then has to forfeit due to his financial circumstances. Anand’s spirit is crushed and defeated but he finds hope in one thing that his father (Virendra Saxena) always said, “Raja ka beta raja nahi banega, raja wahi hai jo hakdar hoga.” With this ray of sunshine, Anand soon sets out on a journey along with his brother Pranav (Nandish Sandhu) to train 30 brilliant underprivileged children who have passion but no means to fulfill their dreams. What ensues is a roller-coaster ride that takes these 30 children on a journey that prepares them to appear for one of the toughest exams in India – the IIT entrance exam. They face various challenges including having to compete with rich kids from Excellence coaching academy which is run by Lallanji (Aditya Srivastava) who proves to be an enemy. Will these children who once worked in gutters and construction sites be able to crack this exam? Super 30 already has the answer.

What Works:

Hrithik Roshan – the star of this film – does a really good job of portraying the man of the hour, Anand Kumar. His dedication and effort to embody Anand’s character is commendable. The movie does a good job of showcasing how coaching institutes have hit the jackpot when it comes to minting money to train students for this exam. But the focus of the movie is to drive home a very simple message – if you desire something, pursue it passionately and relentlessly and nothing can stop you from achieving it. The supporting cast of this film – Mrunal Thakur, Nandish Sandhu, Aditya Srivastava & Pankaj Tripathi, to name a few, have also played their roles to the tee.

What Could’ve Been Better:

A few scenes seemed slightly unnecessary and the movie could’ve done without them and the resulting shorter runtime would’ve certainly been more impactful. Hrithik’s make-up and appearance felt odd in certain scenes. 

Why You Should Watch:

This Vikas Bahl directorial is a must-watch, inspirational film that will make you laugh and cry. If you are a college student or if your child is a college student, don’t miss out on this film. Book without a second thought.

Audiences Hail Karnan As A Masterpiece In Tamil Cinema

It’s finally here! ‘Karnan‘ starring Dhanush and directed by Mari Selvaraj has hit the theatres today. Touted to be one of biggest social dramas of the year, the film has been gaining much hype with its poster releases, music videos and the powerful trailer. Karnan also stars Malayalam actor Rajisha Vijaya who makes her Tamil debut with this film, alongside other actors such as Lakshmipriya Chandramouli, Gouri Kishen, Lal, and Yogi Babu in important roles. The cinematography has been handled by Theni Easwaran. Mari Selvaraj gained huge prominence for his grating caste drama ‘Pariyerum Perumal‘ which stunned audiences and critics for its open narration of the horror of the caste divide in society. This time around, the director once again sets the story in the rural milieu with Dhanush playing the titular role and a saviour-like figure of the masses. The audiences have spoken and the reviews are nothing short of stupendous.
