As a result the use of unique learning tools within the school environment adds to the film. The director does an outstanding job at brainstorming and presenting the film. The first half is spent contesting up the story. The second half enhances the drama but doesn’t change too many possessions. Hichki is a film full of sentiments.


Eventually Hichki had the dormant to be more than just a classroom chronicle. It does touch upon Naina’s personal undertakings and her disharmonize interrelation with her father. But it could’ve left no stone these aspects a lot more. For all its drawbacks, the movie still has profusion of greenness, penetration and emotional discernment. It can make you wistful about your school days and retrospect you of your beloved teacher. This one definitely deserves good grades.
