This movie took me by total surprise.. liked it and enjoyed it and laughed at all the silly jokes and even felt the underlying pain felt by the parents of the child who can not feel pain. Losing his mom early and being brought up by an overprotective father, Surya, Abhimanyu Dasani, is fed on a diet of Superheroes by his Ajoba, Mahesh Manjrekar. Surya grows up in a secluded environment and is pretty messed up till a trip to the city and meeting his friend from his childhood, Supri, Radhika Madan just rights it all.
Irrfan Khan is outstanding and Saba Qamar has complimented him well. Deepak Dobriyal is very good at some places too, but his performance is nowhere close to Pappiji in Tanu Weds Manu. Amrita Singh is totally wasted in Hindi Medium. I was so excited to see her again after her superb performance in 2 States but she’s under utilized. The only thing that works and boy! how fabulously it works for the film is Irrfan Khan. His simple and earnest character is so realistic that it’s hard not to fall in love with him. He also has some great dialogues that he delivered perfectly. His speech at the end had something missing and didn’t click as much as it should have but full marks to his performance.
The movie has its moments.. in a skating rink with the Abba’s Dancing Queen playing; then again when Gus shows Molly a shooting star and explains how we are all made from Stardust.. Calcium being in our bones and Iron in the blood. One funny scene which is actually sad is when Gus is horrified everytime Jerry mentions his break up and divorce with ex Brenda which Gus just doesn’t remember. Also the grouch Baptiste, owner of the cafe Molly works at gets his share of laughs for his one liners. To fall in love with someone every single day.. Again and again.. May be romantic and does linger but leaves a dull ache in the stomach which a sequel would help cure…
