Overall Review:
Produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Sidhhartha Malhotra, Hichki is Rani Mukerji’s drama about teacher-student bonding. She plays the unconventional teacher Naina Mathur who lives with Tourette Syndrome, a nervous system disorder marked by involuntary motortics and grunting sounds. The first half is dominated by Mukerji winning the reluctant misfits. While story is predictable, screenplay is engaging and keeps you hooked on to its first half. This sharp, clever, zingy and funny dialogues gets little boring towards the second half. Director Siddharth Malhotra has done an earnest job by creating heart-warming moments between Naina and her students. Rani is likeable and inspiring. She carries entire film on her shoulder. Chemistry between Rani and her students stands out. Leaving second half towards the end (that makes this Minor Hiccup) which is over dramatic, Hichki is a film that gives out positive, feel good vibes as it is the story about a teacher who turns her biggest weakness into her strength. This simple and engaging feel-good cinema will succeed especially with youth.

PDF Verdict:
Leaving second half towards the end (that makes this Minor Hiccup) which is over dramatic, Hichki is a film that gives out positive, feel good vibes as it is the story about a teacher who turns her biggest weakness into her strength. This simple and engaging feel-good cinema will succeed especially with youth.
