Hindi Medium Movie Review

Ratings:2.5/5. Review by Rajeev Masand on CNN News18

Despite its shortcomings, the film is never unwatchable and benefits enormously from a winning performance by Irrfan Khan who makes his every moment on screen count. From his hilarious wooing of a mother-daughter pair of potential customers at his shop in the film’s first half to his earnest amends on discovering his conscience late into the final act, he has you eating out of his palm. For Irrfan alone, Hindi Medium may be worth a watch. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five.

OneWordReview…Hindi Medium: Wonderful. HindiMedium looks at the education system… A relevant and topical film… Makes you laugh, makes you emotional… Truly heartwarming!Dear Irrfan, is there any character you cannot portray? Such brilliance and versatility is rare. You sparkle yet again in #HindiMedium…


Rating: 4/5. Review by Bollywood Hungama

On the whole, HINDI MEDIUM looks at the workings of the education system. It is a relevant and topical film that makes you laugh and get emotional at the same time. At the Box Office, the movie will be appreciated by the classes as well as the masses. Strongly recommended.


Rating: 5/5. Review by  ROHIT BHATNAGAR on Deccan chronicle

‘Hindi Medium’ is not a film, it is an experience! The film might come across as a children’s film but it is recommended to each and every strata of society. A must watch! You will surely come out of the theaters with tears of joy.


Rating: 4.5/5. Review by Madhureeta Mukherjee on Times of India

At the core, the film deals with a very relevant subject of how language divides our society. How angrezi-speaking people in India are touted to be ‘premium class,’ while the Hindi-waale¸, however, illustrious or wealthy, are low-brow, or plain uncool. Hindi Medium shines in two areas that most of our films often fall short of. As far as the story goes – good writing, and as far as comedy goes – great timing.


Rating: 4/5. Review by Ahana Bhattacharya on Koimoi

This is a film with which every Indian student and parent will be able to relate. Kudos to the makers for highlighting the way education is being turned into a business (which only the rich can afford) in our country. At the same time, it points out the plight of government schools where the major concern is not just lack of infrastructure and facilities but also the lack of students. I go with four stars for this one!


Rating: 3.5/5. Review by Sreeju Sudhakaran on Bollywood Life

Hindi Medium may not be the best in the genre of satire, that honor still lies with the always splendid Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron. But it is a very engaging piece of cinema, that will make us laugh, cry and even question our own role in how things like basic education are getting screwed up in our society. The direction is competent, and the performances from Irrfan, Saba, and Deepak are first-rate. But above all, it’s the core message that the movie did right – Good education is not the privilege of the elite few, but the right of everyone.


Review by Devansh Sharma on First Post

Hindi Medium will be remembered as that lighthearted entertainer that hits you hard with its emotional quotient yet does not make you cry your eyes out.
