‘Hindi Medium’ or ‘Ramdhanu’- What to call it?

‘Hindi Medium’ or ‘Ramdhanu’- What to call it?
Written by Priyanka sarangi

The new flick of Irrfan Khan ‘Hindi Medium’ is all set to excite the audience with his excellent acting skills. The film stars Saba Qamar, Jaspal Sharma, Vijay Kumar Dogra along with Irrfan Khan. The movie revolves around the stereotype thinking of our society that parents should be fluent in English then only the child can get admission in a good English medium school. In this movie, Irrfan plays a commoner who cannot speak English and he says: “My life is Hindi but my wife is English.” The trailer showcases the struggles “Hindi medium” people face in today’s society where English is a way to measure a person’s intelligence and coolness.

The movie highlights the struggles parents do when they go for the admission of their children. The plot of the 2014 Bengali film is also highly similar, bordering on being the same, with a mother trying to get her deadbeat husband to help her get their 5 year-old son into a fancy English school.
As per reports that are doing the rounds, Shiboprosad Mukherjee, on October 4 last year, had informed Mukesh Bhatt, the president of Film & Television Producers Guild of India, to take action against the Saket Chaudhary directorial venture. Claiming that the film is a copy of ‘Ramdhanu’,he had written: “Recently, we have been informed by a close friend and business associate that they were approached by director Saket Chaudary and producer Dinesh Vijan to invest in a film which has a storyline similar to Ramdhanu with Mr Irrfan Khan in the lead.

Many Bengali industry members and others took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction with the same, including the lead actress in Ramdhanu Gargee Roychowdhury, Abir Chatterjee, Prosenjit Chatterjee and Shiboprosad Mukherjee himself.

Hindi Medium, which has been attracting great attention and praise for its trailer, now looks to be in a potentially dangerous situation, as the producer of ‘Ramdhanu’ is reportedly planning to move to court accusing the makers of the movie of copyright infringement. Let’s see what happens next!!
