    ‘Hindi Medium’ is not a film, it is an experience! The film might come across as a children’s film but it is recommended to each and every strata of society. A must watch! You will surely come out of the theatres with tears of joy.

    Hindi Medium is a well-told parable of middleclass aspirations, scattered with moments that every parents would recognize with a combination of pleasure and dread. It is a  solid weekend entertainer with a message for every parent who has ever suffered the traumatic jitters  of  preparing to get a child admitted  into school.Hindi Medium has  balls and long legs. Should go a long way.

    This is a film with which every Indian student and parent will be able to relate. Kudos to the makers for highlighting the way education is being turned into a business (which only the rich can afford) in our country. At the same time, it points out the plight of government schools where the major concern is not just lack of infrastructure and facilities but also the lack of students.

    This film is warm, fuzzy and yet thought provoking. It’s a film every new parent needs to watch. It’s definitely one of the best of the year.

    A little preachy and over-dramatic towards the end, Hindi Medium strongly drives its point home. Chaudhary’s film has immense repeat value.

    Hindi Medium is a very engaging piece of cinema, that will make us laugh, cry and even question our own role in how things like basic education are getting screwed up in our society.

    Barring a pretentious climax and a few cliches, Hindi Medium is a class worth getting enrolled to especially for Irrfan Khan’s brilliant performance and the crisp humour!

    With such a bold subject which is relatable to every student and parent, ‘Hindi Medium’ is not that typical film in the curriculum of Bollywood cinema and kudos to the many positive factors which consist it. With stellar performances, interesting subject depicting the hard-core dark truth of the country’s education system, you will not be disappointed while returning from theatres. It will definitely make you re-think about the need of education in today’s era. So go get your admission forms (movie tickets) from the theatres near you and get yourself admitted to this hindi medium school without being sceptical.

    Divya Pal | IBNLive

    While the film is compelling in showing that India’s enormous push for English is often interpreted as an instant solution to all problems – including academic achievement, better employment opportunities and economic success, it isn’t just an accusation on Indian education system. It raises several concerns, but misses it just when it is required the most. Despite its flaws, the film is still relevant and successfully touches upon a relevant issue.

    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…

    Hindi Medium may use over-dramatised events to make its message hit home, but in spite of its hiccups, the film is not bogged down because of the performances and the humour.

    Most of it works. Some of it doesn’t. While being crowd-friendly, the film lapses into simplicities, such as that of seeing only virtue in the poor, while the rich usually comprise pretentious a-holes.

    Hindi Medium makes a point – several points, in fact – by being simple and straightforward yet not simplistic. The film’s achievement is that it tells us things we already know yet forces us to think about them, and has lots of fun while doing so.

    Despite its shortcomings, the film is never unwatchable and benefits enormously from a winning performance by Irrfan Khan who makes his every moment on screen count. From his hilarious wooing of a mother-daughter pair of potential customers at his shop in the film’s first half to his earnest amends on discovering his conscience late into the final act, he has you eating out of his palm. For Irrfan alone, Hindi Medium may be worth a watch.

    It isn’t possible to completely dislike Hindi Medium. So, ignore its hiccups and watch it for the relevance of the questions it poses and the remarkable quality of the acting.

    As usual, it’s the marvelous Irrfan who keeps us watching. His is a fine, well-judged performance, which rises above the lines. At one point, we see him cracking up while watching his favourite florid TV serial : in that moment, ‘Hindi Medium’ is glorious, because the actor catches what he’s meant to do, meant to be, gloriously..

    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.

    …between a poorly directed Hindi Medium and Arjun Kapoor’s broken English in Half Girlfriend, you really don’t have much of a choice…
