Review By Taran Adarsh From Twitter

OneWordReview…Hindi Medium: Wonderful. HindiMedium looks at the education system… A relevant and topical film… Makes you laugh, makes you emotional… Truly heartwarming!Dear Irrfan, is there any character you cannot portray? Such brilliance and versatility is rare. You sparkle yet again in #HindiMedium.


Review By Madhureeta From Times Of India

At the core, the film deals with a very relevant subject of how language divides our society. How angrezi-speaking people in India are touted to be ‘premium class,’ while the Hindi-waale¸ however illustrious or wealthy, are low-brow, or plain uncool. Hindi Medium shines in two areas that most of our films often fall short of. As far as the story goes – good writing, and as far as comedy goes – great timing.

 

Review By Hungama From Bollywoodhungama

On the whole, HINDI MEDIUM looks at the workings of the education system. It is a relevant and topical film that makes you laugh and get emotional at the same time. At the Box Office, the movie will be appreciated by the classes as well as the masses. Strongly recommended.

 

Review By Shubhra Gupta From Indian Express

As usual, it’s the marvelous Irrfan who keeps us watching. His is a fine, well-judged performance, which rises above the lines. At one point, we see him cracking up while watching his favourite florid TV serial : in that moment, ‘Hindi Medium’ is glorious, because the actor catches what he’s meant to do, meant to be, gloriously.. What happened to that tone in the rest of the film?

 

Review By Rohit Site From Hindustan Times

A little preachy and over-dramatic towards the end, Hindi Medium strongly drives its point home. Chaudhary’s film has immense repeat value. You are likely to empathise with Qamar when she says, “Iss desh me angrezi zabaan nahi class hai,” (English is not a language but class in this country). And if you don’t then you might be a part of the group that wants the status quo.

 

Review By Sreehari From Rediff

Hindi Medium works because it somehow manages to stretch itself beyond its scrubby elements, easy half-baked jokes, lessons about consumerism and our love for English, into a simple story about a boy who would do anything to see his girl smile. There’s an oasis of sanity there.
