Story & Background :
Hindi Medium is the story of a couple (Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar) who are hell bent on ensuring that their child has a good education. In this case, a good education being synonymous with fluency in English to prove one's worth.
The two, in their struggle to get their child admitted into an English medium school, live up to the unhealthy obsession of society because “Koi angrezi mein baat karega toh uski rooh kaap uthegi, fit nahi ho paegi society mein, toh lonely and depressed ho jaegi aur usne drugs le liye toh?”
Irrfan Khan plays a Punjabi saree shop owner, while Saba Qamar, who is making her Bollywood debut with this film, plays his wife.
Hindi Medium also stars Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Kumar Dogra and Jaspal Sharma in pivotal roles.
