Mumbai: The trailer of Irrfan Khan ’s film ‘Hindi Medium’ is a hard-hitting one. It has touched base upon one of the most important obsessions in our country, which is to speak impeccable English.
A country whose national language is Hindi but speaking a foreign tongue like English gives you class and a sense of inclusiveness, standard and license to socialize in the society with confidence.
Our obsession is such that speaking in your national language slots you under the ‘lower class strata.’
One can’t be classy if one doesn’t speak English?
What if your financial backing prohibits you from learning English? Who is the one to be blamed then for not being classy?
Answers to all such questions will be answered in this film.
The film is a story about a couple’s struggle to get their daughter admitted to a posh English school in order to survive in this society and also prevent others from befooling her.
Pakistani actress Saba Qamar plays the English-speaking wife to Irrfan Khan who is alien to the language. As usual, Irrfan has bowled us over with his stellar performance. Amrita Singh also will be seen in a supporting role.
The film releases on 12th March 2017.
