Ashish Kumar is a teacher who loves to teach the kids in rural areas. He is an IAS officer by profession and to fulfill his dreams to educate the kids, he leaves the job. While carrying out his dream, he gets an idea to develop the government school and his effort pays him well. The school competes with the private school in quality education and he faces the challenges shot against him. Was he permitted to continue his service? What happened to him in the end? The answers reveal the rest of the story.

Star Performance

Shiva is the writer of the film. His performance is okayish and Sheetal, too had given a decent performance. However, they should have tried a bit more to give a natural performance.


The film is good in script and screenplay. The direction is good too. As a writer, Shiva wins the show, but he has to develop his acting skills. Although the screenplay is good, it moves a bit slowly. But, the message regarding education in rural areas is strongly registered. BGM and cinematography are pretty decent.

What’s There?

The script is good

  • The direction is appreciable
  • The message about education is a good one

What’s Not There?

  • The stars should have performed better
  • The screenplay should have been a bit fast


It is a decent film to watch for the story and direction. As it comes with a good message, it is appreciable too.
