The trailer of Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 is out and all we can say is – it definitely does have promise!
Based on the real-life story of mathematician Anand Kumar and his educational program, Super 30, this film is all about finding hope, writing your own destiny and carving your own identity in a world otherwise filled with businessmen and money-makers in the name of education.
Directed by Vikas Bahl, the film traces the journey of the genius of Kumar (Hrithik Roshan), a highly talented man belonging to a modest family from Bihar, who coaches mathematics for the IIT-JEE entrances. In what turns out to be a very profitable move, he is then offered to grow his humble coaching centre into a business model. However, in a twist of tale, he chooses to train underprivileged but deserving children instead, at absolutely no cost, via his Super 30 program.
It is an inspiring tale of one man’s desire to change the system – of him wanting to serve for the rights of those who genuinely deserve, with or without money, with or without lineage, right from the grassroots.
What really stands out here is the fact that it’s all based on a true story. And a story bound to be told. The cinematography and the sets look good, majorly sticking to the authenticity of the narrative, while dialogues like the one right in the end of the trailer that goes – “Raja ka beta raja nahi banega. Raja wahi banega jo haqdaar hoga (The son of a king won’t always be the king. The king will be the one who deserves it the most)” manage to tug at the heartstrings. Hrithik Roshan, back on-screen after 2017’s Kaabil, is in a never-seen-before, very rustic-looking avatar, delivering his dialogues quiet remarkably in a Bhojpuri accent. However, what remains to be seen is whether or not he manages to pull off the same throughout the duration of the film. The children, however, shine almost all throughout the trailer, and their back stories along with the way they draw confidence from their coach pretty much guarantees the film to be an emotional roller coaster.
Are we excited? Definitely. It was high time a biopic came along that was dedicated to the unknown heroes out there who aim to truly serve for the betterment of our country and education system without asking for anything in return. And in return, all we hope for the film to do justice to them.
