Hichki review: Rani Mukerji is pitch perfect in this hiccup laden dull film | PINKVILLA

Rani Mukerji renders her prowess as a performer in Hichki, bringing the nuances and gravitas to her character Naina Mathur. She is sassy yet affectionate, much like Sidney Poitier but minus the man’s grace and her intrinsic zest.

We have forgotten the fine line between a good film and a good performance. With blurring dimensions, we mix up things a tad too soon. So when it comes to Hichki, don’t go by Aamir Khan’s tweet from last night. I made that mistake and I was sorely disappointed. Not disputing what he says is his version of the truth, but that doesn’t match with the aftertaste of the film. You see, the trailer made me think of To Sir, with love and Dead Poets Society. Sadly enough, the film did the same. So what’s so great about this film – oh well, Rani Mukerji. What a terrific performer and how could you have not missed someone as brilliant as her. But that’s all there is to this sickeningly uni dimensional film. It’s frustrating to see director Siddharth P. Malhotra paint a utopian world, with cardboard characters so devoid of layers or shades. It’s worse that someone of Neeraj Kabi’s calibre was reduced to a villain, who, if it weren’t for Kabi would have been more comical than menacing. Probably designed as an inspirational tale of a woman fighting all odds, from Tourette Syndrome to being handed a class of singularly unruly kids, the film ends up being dull and desperate (to give a message).

As The trailer tells us, Rani plays Naina Mathur – teacher with a nervous system disorder. That’s no disease but surely a disability that causes her to be discriminated against frequently. But she won’t give up despite the hiccups and grunts because Naina believes in creating a socially inclusive world. Degrees by the heaps in tow, she finally lands a job for her feistiness but it’s far from easy for her to prove her worth. A classroom of underperforming underprivileged and unruly children to tame, she takes the mammoth task. Rani renders her prowess as a performer, bringing the nuances and gravitas to Mathur. She is sassy yet affectionate, much like Sidney Poitier but minus the man’s grace and her intrinsic zest. Dealing with a class full of bullies, Rani and Naina brave and brace on.

But that’s all about Rani and what a fine performer she is. Certainly, no hiccups on that one. What about the film? It’s blah. It’s predictable and suck out Rani and there’s barely anything to care much for, even its subject that demands empathy. The problem definitely lies in the writing – when the template lacks novelty, you try to give your own touches to the story but Malhotra and even his original sources Brad Cohen, who was on board with the film fail to create that palpability. The bonding between Rani and her kids (a bunch of 14-year-olds, each ace in their bits) are unable to establish their bond on screen. You are never entirely convinced by what plays out on screen. The finale specifically lacks punch and finesse also reminded me of 3 Idiots, just for its dramatic effect. 

Saving Rani, Hichki is full of hiccups but it’s all about giving it a chance I guess. It’s a passable watch that is hammering its message to everyone. No harm giving it a listen! 

We give the film a 55%.
