Pareeksha is The Final Test for A Bright Future

Being associated with the noble profession of educator, I find great pleasure in watching spectacular movies about education for their emotional connect. Because such movies not just portray the fact that 'Education' can change the world, but inspire one to be determined on his set educational path. 
This morning, while I was checking on some information about the New Education Policy recently introduced in India, a teaser trailer titled 'Pareeksha' popped up in my search. The title Pareeksha instantly caught my attention for obvious reasons and it aroused my curiosity to another level when I realized that it's a ZEE5 original film written, produced and directed by none other than national award-winning filmmaker Mr. Prakash Jha. Because the master storyteller is well-known for crafting socially-relevant films such as Raajneeti, Apaharan, Gangaajal, Mrityudand and Damul. I exclusively remember admiring Aarakshan, an impactful film by Jha based on Indian education system. Now I'm all the way excited for his critical take on the education system through Pareeksha: The Final Test.

The movie, to be digitally premiered this week on OTT platform ZEE5, is inspired from real-life events of SP Abhaynandan. The storyline revolves around difficulties and hardships which the poor face in order to achieve their dreams. This heart-wrenching tale aptly narrates how a rickshaw puller named Buchchi (played by Adil Hussain) dreams of giving his son a good education and goes lengths to make his dream a reality despite his financial restrictions. His dream takes him on a disastrous path, which could shatter all that he holds dear. It literally pinches your heart to witness what talented but underprivileged youth in economically depressed family backgrounds have to go through in order to attain basic facilities like a decent education. The film literally makes a sharp comment on our education system that has been monopolized by the rich and remains inaccessible to the masses.

Pareeksha features Priyanka Bose, Sanjay Suri and child actor Shubham Jha in lead roles besides Adil Hussain, all of whom have beautifully donned their roles. 
The subject matter of the film is genuinely dear to many of us and is the need of the hour as the quality of education is one of the major determinant factors to decide the fate of future generations of our country. The film carries forward an important message of 'hope' across to the audiences that talent can bloom if provided with adequate opportunity and dreams do come true with determination & willpower. Such films encourage my faith that the role of education in creating a fairer and more equal society is undeniable. Because those who strive for literacy today, wahi kal apne #SapneSachKarenge and an equal access to education will eliminate discrimination in society.
