Paathshaala Bollywood Movie Review
Set on the backdrop of a Saraswati Vidya Mandir school, a new teacher by the name of Rahul Prakash (shahid) joins and he teaches English. In no time, he builds rapport with the management, staff and students alike but then, he senses that there is something missing in the school in a big way. His senses prove right with the manager of the school Sharma (saurabh) chalking out a new plan which is nothing but fleecing the money out of parents. Rahul protests this and manages to get the support of teachers Anjali (Ayesha) and Vijendra Chauhan (sushant). However, he gets a shock when the dedicated and committed principal Aditya Sahay (nana) takes the management's side. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.
Paathshaala Hindi Cinema Review
The director has come up with a thought provoking and sensitive concept but then he was not successful in conceiving it on the screen effectively. The dialogues were alright but the script was not upto the mark, even the screenplay was terrible at key instances which spoils the flavor. Background score was alright and not much in songs. Cinematography was impressive, costumes were colorful and the art department was neat. Shahid Kapoor does complete justice to his role and he gives few engaging moments, Ayesha looks sweet as a doll and shines with her performance, as usual it is Nana Patekar who hogs the limelight with his mild but intense performance, Saurabh Shukla is the best, Sushant Singh was superb, the others were there to fill the screen.
Paathshaala Filem Review
The film tries to explore and highlight the drawbacks of the education system but such issues need to be handled with finesse and depth. While the first half is spent trying to build the plot, the second half is spent trying to dismantle it and the climax was a bit unconvincing. Though the technical values and production values were high, the makers were not able to extract the impact from the efficient cast due to hollow etching of the characters. There are few good points here and there but overall, it is not a movie that leaves an impact on the audience as they walk out. At the box office, this might turn out to be a mediocre treat.
