Movie Review: Super 30 2 weeks ago
Anand Kumar is a mathematician best known for his Super 30 programme, which he started in Patna in 2002, which coaches underprivileged students for the IIT entrance test. His has really been an inspiring journey, as 422 out of the 480 students till 2018 have cleared the tough entrance test, thanks to his efforts. He has been felicitated by the government, and has been the subject of a Discovery Channel documentary. Several corporates, as well as NGOs, have tried to reach out to him but he"s still sustaining his Super 30 programme on his own. He not only teaches the students free of cost but also provides shelter and food for them throughout the coaching period.
Super 30 is a fictionalised account of his life. To reach out to a wider audience, perhaps, director Bahl and his writer Sanjeev Dutta have not taken the documentary route but have chosen instead to add drama to the proceedings. Their aim is to provide an emotional punch every ten minutes or so. Anand Kumar is shown more like a life guru of sorts than a teacher of science and maths. One of the themes of the film is that the underprivileged children don’t do well because they lack the confidence in themselves and Anand sets about righting that wrong. He’s shown to be a target of the coaching mafia. It’s another matter that the villains behave like stock pieces and not like flesh and blood characters. Aditya Shrivastava, who plays the head of the coaching class which gives Anand the initial break and Pankaj Tripathi, who is the politician behind the coaching mafia, are dependable actors in their own right. Strangely, they act as ’90s villains here. There is an entire track in the film where the central character is shown to be attracted towards gold, wine and women and we feel as if we’re watching a moralistic tale set in the ’80s as disco beats start blaring in the background. And the attack on his life and the retaliation by his students belong more to a masala potboiler than a film about a life-changing teacher.
The screenplay doesn’t follow any sort of logic. Anand Kumar’s chief claim to fame, as shown in the film, is that he solves an impossible theorem, gets his name printed in a foreign journal and on the basis of that, gets admission to Cambridge University. The man who heads the biggest coaching class in Patna puts up hoardings tom-toming Anand Kumar’s name. Why is he being publicised as the best teacher without him ever having taught anywhere? All the 30 students, with no money to their name, do pass the entrance exam but who is going to pay their college fees? There’s a lack of attention to detail. Hrithik"s bronze make-up keeps drifting between various shades. He’s dressed almost in cast-offs but his brother dons the latest jeans and sneakers and sports gelled hair. Hrithik looks older when he’s selling papads then when we see him as a mentor later in life. The sound design isn’t consistent as well.
It’s the performances which elevate the film. The 30 students ooze sincerity and look their parts. One can empathise with their desire of spreading their wings and flying away from their hand-to-mouth lives. Veteran Virendra Saxena is a joy to watch in his brief role as Anand’s father. After a long hiatus, Sadhana Singh is seen here as Anand’s mother and fits the bill to a T. Nandish Singh too is aptly cast as Anand’s hot-headed brother. Mrunal Thakur, who plays Anand’s girlfriend, is the surprise packet of the film. She doesn’t have much of a role but her natural ease is amazing indeed. She does get the line which gathers the most laughs. Mention must be made of the dialogue here, which is witty most times and imparts some inspirational maxims as well. The film belongs to Hrithik Roshan. He makes you forget the bad make-up and varying accent through his sheer involvement in the role. He underplays the anger, the pain, as well as the joy, felt by his character and makes us believe in Anand Kumar. Let’s hope this isn’t the first and the last time he’s playing a common man...
