The film brings to light the loopholes in today"s education system. It is about the problems faced by students, parents and teachers. Shahid Kapoor, who plays an English teacher, tries to clean up the unfair practices in his school. Nana Patekar is the principal of the school and actors like Ayesha Takia, Sushant Singh, Kurush Deboo play teachers in the film.
The highlight of the film is its theme. It has a message for the viewers to take home. Another highlight of the film is Shahid"s role. After playing a loverboy in Jab We Met and a hard-hitting one in Kaminey, he decided to take up this film, which has the shade of Aamir Khan"s Taare Zameen Par. Shahid had earlier revealed that he took up the film for its message.
Bollywood badly needs a good film to make up the lost that the ongoing IPL has caused. Last Friday"s release Prince, starring Vivek Oberoi, brought a little hope to Bollywood. Now, people in the film industry are looking forward to Paathshaala to bail out Hindi film industry from the bad times.
The hype around Paathshaala, produced by Ahmed Khan and Shaira Khan and directed by Milind Ukey, is so far so good but we will come to know its true colour only when it hits the theatres tomorrow.
For now, it"s time to go to Paathshaala!
