Adil Hussain effortlessly pulls off the role of the father Buchi, making us smile at the simple joys in his life, while also pushing us to hope for a better future for him and his son Bulbul. The role of Bulbul is played by Shubham, a child actor who has beautifully portrayed the desperation of a child wanting to study well while fending off his peers to force him to take part in games and avoid studying.
The teaser begins with Buchi singing his own version of nursery rhymes to children in English while dropping them off at a C.B.S.E. school. From there his wish is born to provide Bulbul similar education, trusting him to succeed in life. Although his wish is simple, various snarky comments and jokes are passed on him from his friends and society. This does nothing to deter him from his goal, and we see Bulbul’s family working extra hard to make their dreams come true. Directed by National award-winning director Prakash Jha, Pareeksha is certainly a deserving watch to make us connect with the simple joys of life and the importance of education in today’s time and age.
