Mita and Raj Batra, an affluent couple from Delhi’s Chandni Chowk, are grappling with getting their daughter admission into an English medium school. But there is one big problem. Their zubaan is Hindi, and the elitist snobs won’t let the Hindi speaking hoi-polloi fit in.Hindi Medium
Hindi Medium is a 2017 Indian comedy-drama film written by Zeenat Lakhani and directed by Saket Chaudhary. The film features Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar in the lead roles. The film is a loose-remake of the 2014 Bengali film Ramdhanu.The film emerged as a true Sleeper hit at the Box Office..Raj Batra is running a successful business of bridal wears in downtown Delhi. Although rich, he is not highly educated & is not fluent in English or the supposedly ‘high class culture’ his wife Mita aspires to be. Both of them have studied from govt run ‘Hindi Medium’ school, not known to have high degree of sophistication. Mita aspires that their 5 year daughter Pia should break this barrier & is adamant that she is to be admitted to one of the top 5 schools in Delhi. They visit all the 5 schools & get acquainted with the admission procedure. The top school ‘Delhi Grammar School’ has a condition that they give admission to students who reside within 3km radius. For this they shift to Vasant Vihar. Raj is very sad to leave his paternal home.
