Second part is too boring.

The concept of the film may be intriguing and it does attempt to tackle with the corrupt education system in India which has rarely been depicted in Hindi cinema.

(4/10) ACTING : every one was awesome (9/10) Speed : very boring ...

more slow.

The ending is a huge let down, contrived to give it a feel good moment.

How the coaching system has affected, commercialized and immersed in India.

Post intermission, the film goes slow and becomes quite predictable with the same cliché kind of drama where a single person revolts against a cunning man in power and then all others start joining him in his war against the faulty system.

The critics will find it too absorbing to merely regard it as a satire on the prevalent education system.

in first half an hr movie goes very very slow with unnecessary songs.

I still recommend this movie because it's impressive in patches and it's an entertaining movie which keeps you glued to the screen like a regular masala flick.

It became a little bit predictable and melodramatic toward the finale, at times convenient as well with the last minute introduction of a deus ex machina type character to set everything back on an even keel.

Gripping and riveting story .

too slow (2/10) TITLE : Nothing about arakshan (1/10) SONGS : so irritating .. (1/10)

Therefore this first part of the film is a clear winner, with an entertaining fast paced action and explosive sequences which greatly excite the viewer on the whole and he starts expecting a lot more coming thereafter.

It picks up only at a later stage which gives a feeling that the movie is forcefully dragged for a prolonged duration.

after that, till interval it gets more slow.

The movie is very confusing in itself and it seems the director isn't sure what he wants to portray, a documentary, social drama,or just a comment on just the education culture.

Overall its a fabulous film worth watching!

Its a gripping story.
