Rani Mukerji is back to movies, and with the first trailer for Hichki, it seems she’s going to blow everyone away with another winning performance. The actress stars as Naina Thakur, a teacher who suffers from Tourette syndrome, meaning she experiences hiccups suddenly, and which impairs her ability to communicate with other people. However, that isn’t going to stop her from aspiring and even successfully getting a job at a high profile school, St Notker. Naina then is given the task or challenge to teach to students who come from slums of Mumbai and are only given admission because of right of education.
The trailer shows the struggles of Naina, as she tries to teach the students, who oppose her, while coming to terms about her own disability, but not in somber way. She remains as positive and joyful, even as she faces difficulties.
Even in the trailers, Rani seems to be giving another great performance that will surely going to be one of the most memorable ones of next year. Rani, as she has shown in Black, has never cowered from difficult characters, and its her willingness to commit to her characters that make her one of the best actress in film industry, Bollywood or otherwise.
The movie is directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and is going to be released on 23 February 2018. The premise of the movie is something that most movies seldom try to portray and it. As Rani herself has confessed, she used to stammer when she was a child, and had to overcome her difficulties to be what she wanted to be. Hichki has been recieved to overwhelming positive reaction from people who saw the trailer, and they’re already saying that it has become one of their most anticipated movie of the next year.
