Synopsis by Olivia Cantor
Directed by Hansal Mehta, this film is a black comedy that focuses on the life of a physical education teacher based in a small town in Uttar Pradesh. Rajkummar Rao plays Montu, the teacher who has a laidback attitude about his job in a school that’s partly funded by the government. However, circumstances beyond his control suddenly threaten to jeopardize his work life and even his love life. He is then prompted to do something that he hasn’t really been doing much – teach. Nushrat Bharucha co-stars as Neelu, Montu’s love interest.
