3. What is life without a few hiccups
What is life without a few hiccups is the tagline film. In the film, we will see how Naina Mathur turning her disadvantage (speech defect) into an opportunity. According to Rani, “for somebody to take their weakness and turn it into strength… It holds a positive message. I truly believe that all of us have a weakness that we know but we try to camouflage it as we have to put up a hard exterior in front of the world. If one can make their weakness their strength, the world can become a good place.”
4. The education system in India
There are many Bollywood films which are focused on our Indian education system. Apart from Naina Mathur’s story, this film is a subtle reminder about the education system and deeply rooted discrimination in our society. In one of her interviews, Rani Mukerji also stated that Education is the right of every human being, irrespective of the gender. In India, a state like Kerala has the highest percentage of literacy, we should take that as an example. Once there is a change in the attitude, it can make a huge difference. Both men and women are working today and education should not be gender specific.
5. A strong positive message about the neuropsychiatric disorder
We movie buffs witnessed many films based on mental health awareness as talking about it is still a taboo in our country. After some appreciative efforts by Bollywood filmmakers, for example, after Alia Bhatt’s Dear Zindagi and Amir Khan’s Taare Zameen Par, Hichki will be another good initiative to make a film related to such any neuro disorder. In the film, Naina suffered from speech impairment issue which became a big hurdle in her daily life. The film showed how she overcomes her weakness and lived her dream of being a teacher which can inspire many people suffered from such syndromes.
