Director, actor, writer and producer, Prakash Jha is well-known to come out with films that showcase India’s social-economic and societal problems. Now the filmmaker is back with his new film Pareeksha starring Adil Hussain in the lead that takes a look at the education system in India. The film is up for release at an opportune moment as the nation’s education policy has undergone a tremendous change.
Ahead of the film’s direct-to-web release the trailer has been dropped and it shows Adil as a humble rickshaw driver who is hell-bent on seeing his meritorious son get into a good school so that he can get a good education. However, his dreams and efforts become irritants in the elite people’s eyes who do not want a poor man’s son get the same privilege.
For the sake of his son’s future Buchchi is ready to foresake everything. Will his sacrifice pay off?
