REVIEW: Chalk N Duster has its heart in the opportune spot. Made with a goal of showcasing the worms in the present instruction framework, where cash regularly gets merit over ability; this film can be praised to some degree. In any case, it wallows in the principal half because of its cheap account approach. Told like a TV serial, it takes the oft-taken way of taking after the underprivileged on nearby prepare rides to the Mumbai chawl. Affirm so the purpose of an educator’s life being hard is made. However, it’s anticipated to see Shabana spotting sweat with her sari pallav as she gets off an over-swarmed Virar close to, purchasing vada pav and custody the positive soul at home that has an incapacitated spouse (Girish Karnad) and their going to-be sanctioned bookkeeper little girl. The venerated educator additionally mentors the area youngsters for nothing!
At that point, there is Juhi who is marginally more favored than her didi, Shabana. She can purchase an auto on portions. These two instructors likewise have dedicated associates, who get to be sisters in wretchedness when Kamini Gupta(Divya Dutta) a villain wearing fashioner sarees is selected as the foremost. Divya is more absurd than Cinderella’s stepmother and stepsisters set up together. The stun of bearing her terribleness gives Shabana a heart condition. Juhi exits the school and pledges to get back the “honor” of her didi and herself. In this way, they contact a media individual, Richa Chadha, an IAS officer, a Minister, faithful past understudies from the world over and even win Rs 5 crore in a KBC-styled challenge, with Rishi Kapoor in a cameo as the test expert!
The execution generally is cumbersome. However some place in the second half, Gilatar makes up for himself and the film. He touches on the significance of instructors in our lives and demonstrates the lack of care of the forces that-are towards giving equivalent training opportunities. It likewise gives us a glad India minute as we watch two instructors breeze through a GQ challenge without a hitch. Life, all things considered, whether in a silver screen lobby or on the outside is about minor triumphs (organized or something else), would it say it isn’t?
Shabana and Juhi are irritatingly saccharine at first; however get solidly in the seat soon. They’re from the tried and true part of performing artists all things considered
