Super 30 a change maker film featuring Hirithik Roshan is all meant to inspire children, giving hope to adults to keep the fight on.
The story is about maths wizard Anand Kumar, who after beating all odds, opens his own IIT coaching centre and picks up 30 under privileged children and educating them for IIT examination.
The story of Super 30, that is every bit worth knowing, is known to the public already. It was the makers’ treatment, actors’ performances and the team’s vision that was to be seen.
Hrithik Roshan, who is making return to the big screen after almost two years, steps into the shoes of mathematician Anand Kumar. Actor portrays so well that one doesn’t see Anand in Hrithik. But just Hrithik trying to play Anand. Every bit of film is worth inspiring and a must watch film to watch.
The supporting casts also plays the real life characters, however, delivers its absolute best. Virendra Saxena as Hrithik’s who appears in a cameo, delivers well.
But it’s Pankaj Tripathi in the role of a corrupt Education Minister steals the show and briefs even the minutest details of his character and makes it his own.
What disappoints is the film’s treatment – which first, seems away from reality and second, seems superficial to even begin with. The film begins in London, where a man named Phugga (played by Vijay) is delivering a monologue about Indians and their achievements. In his speech, he mentions his teacher Anand Kumar and in flashback, the film begins. Right from the word go, the makers have tried to incorporate a mix of emotions and rightly so. At one point, Anand is also shown to be selling papad to make his ends meet. It’s one drunken night that he is reminded of his own struggles as a child and his father’s saying, ‘Raja ka beta raja nahi banega, wo banega jo hakdaar hoga’. Overnight, he decides to change his life.
The background music is overpoweringly unnecessary.
The story of Super 30 is heartfelt and inspiring, and can be watched once.
