Super 30 Movie Review
Inspired by maths whiz Anand Kumar, who saw with his batch of’ Super 30′ children year after year a fantastic achievement rate for IIT admissions, the movie charts his motivating voyage as a fictional account. Anand (Hrithik Roshan) rises from the rubble to mold his dreams, a life dotted with disputes and hardships. The tale does not touch on the inevitable conflicts that have been reported in the media surrounding Anand Kumar, concentrating instead on his struggles and glory.
A postman’s son, a young Anand clinches an entry to Cambridge University because of his mathematics brilliance. But when he has to let go of this lifetime opportunity just because he can’t afford the charges, life hits him hard and breaks his spirit. But that doesn’t last too long as he is selected by Lallanji (Aditya Srivastava) to become a math teacher at an IIT coaching center run by him for wealthy learners. But quickly, his real calling and enthusiasm will catch up with him, and he understands he has to use his abilities to offer a fair opportunity to live to less privileged, bright learners.
He faces opposition and barriers one by one along with the manner, of course, but he never loses sight of what he intends to do.
Super 30′ drives the message home that education is the privilege of those with access and financial resources. Unfortunately, it stays a distant dream for many, but if they have the same possibilities to shine equally brightly in them. There are many times in the film that will move you–Anand must scrape through after beginning his Super 30 courses–with the learners often barely getting anything to eat. But the real hunger they have is for better education and a better life.
There are several heartfelt, inspirational moments in’ Super 30′ that touch a chord. When Anand tells “Aapatti sai araavishkar ka janm hota hain” at one stage, you think him, particularly after seeing how driven his student batch is, leaving behind their miserable life and daring to dream big.
But the extended run-time of the film starts to weigh on the story in the second half. And some of the plot points are found to be far-fetched and too dramatic, with some scenes unnecessarily dominated by the background score. However, the movie’s cinematography (Anay Goswami) stands out, and some of the dialogs hit home.
Hrithik Roshan pulls off Anand Kumar’s strong performance, capturing the sincerity and determination of his character very well. While many are not completely convincing about his physicality, his performance is more than compensating for it. Nandish Singh is like Anand’s brother, honest and well-cast. In her limited screen time, Mrunal Thakur is efficient. As the unscrupulous politician, Pankaj Tripathi is excellent, and Aditya Srivastava matches his character’s villainy with the hilt.
While the narrative has its flaws, ‘ Super 30 ‘ is a human drama and a teacher’s story that triumphs over the many challenges life pose to him, setting an example for the world to see. It’s worth a watch for that alone.
