After hugely successful “Mi Shivaji Raje Bhosale Bolatoy”, Mahesh Manjarekar and his team came back with “Shikshanachya Aaicha Gho”. The movie undermines the pathetic education system has been running in India for decades. Although we all survived it in our time, but concerning part is instead of improving it this system is going down in a deep hole. Many kids are not able to handle this pressure and attempting suicides every now and then. This movie talks about the rubbish education system we have and how the parents themselves piling on the pressure on their kids.
This is a story of a father (played by Bharat Jadhav) who ignores the talent of his son (Saksham Kulkarni) in Cricket. He want his son to study hard; so that he would make good career and good life instead of running behind distant dream of playing cricket for career. He tries to push his son to his limits so that he will earn scholarship. But his son’s heart is not in studies, he just loves cricket. So the son inevitably fails. His father, who has so many expectations from his son, could not take this and gets violent. And in this violent streak he accidently hurts his son to go in coma. After almost losing his son forever the father realizes his mistakes. And he starts to spread this message to other parents, to teachers, and to authorities, that recognize the inner talent of your kids and encourage them develop that. Not everyone has to be engineer and doctors.
The movie has good social message going on. But as a movie it is not that great. It has some high points and some very low points. It isn’t consistent throughout. I think screenplay could have better. It felt like story unfinished and climax unconvincing.
If I have to rate this movie I will give it 5 out of 10.
