Story of Angrezi Medium:
Udaipur-based Champak Bansal (Khan) is a small-time businessman who owns one of two Ghasitaram sweet shops in the same locality, the other belonging to his brother Gopi (Dobriyal). Champak’s life revolves around bickering with his brother over whose shop represents the “original” Ghasitaram brand and taking care of his daughter, Tarika (Madan), who wants to pursue higher education in the UK.
Right from her childhood, Tarika (Radhika Madan) harbors a dream of studying abroad. Initially, her father Champak Bansal (Irrfan Khan), who owns a sweetmeat shop named Ghasitaram, is a bit apprehensive about her ‘videshi’ plans as he fears to lose his daughter. Nevertheless, he throws a challenge at Tarika to earn good grades and secure a scholarship at Truford University in London. With her hard work and dedication, Tarika passes with flying colors. Unfortunately, Champak inadvertently ends up ruining her opportunity of studying in London. Shattered by this, he takes it upon himself to fulfill his bitiya’s ambition by hook or by crook. The dedicated father gives in to his daughter’s dreams, but things soon start to spiral out of control when he has to pay the hefty fee.
An Another Stand with Angrezi Medium:
‘Angrezi Medium’ brings to the young generation’s fascination for higher studies in foreign countries while adding drama and comedy to the mix as the narrative moves from Udaipur to London. The screenplay also reflects on teen rebellion and generation gap. Mainly in the second part, Champak Bansal made all that a father can do for his children and succeeded to get an admission letter for his daughter. But Tarika was changed after coming to London and being life independently. Director Homi Adajania’s urge to add too many sub-plots takes its toll on the film during the second half. Ultimately Tarika came to know what her father has done for her admission and felt guilty for her all behavior and thinking. The story is shortly stated here. If you want to know the whole story then you have to watch the movie.
Review of Angrezi Medium:
In our opinion, the movie is based on the very true facts that happen in society. May be there are some parents who are not that much literate and also their lifestyle is not so modern. But that doesn’t mean that parents are not hoping or willing good for his children. In the film, Champak Bansal who is the father of Tarika, also want that his daughter would go for higher studies but he afraid of his bond and connection with his daughter.
Tarika’s mother passed away at the time of her birth. From then to her young age her father did all that parents should do together but he do that alone. So he is getting afraid if her daughter will go London and forget him then he will be lonely. This is not only his thinking, every single child-parent think about this.
Our opinion regarding this Movie:
Also to fulfill own wish many times children are so cruel that they didn’t think about their parents but they are very much excited to do and take step such that their parents are getting hurt. But the child didn’t get this at that time, when he or she understood that it was very late. But the lovely thing is that parent’s anger doesn’t live for long. Here the care of a father, affection, and love between father, brother, friend and daughter is unforgettable.
The most beautiful scene is that when a father shows his love and care and thinking for his daughter and at the last when his daughter understand all that his father and she has done. End with a sweet a note that, “when child is small, parent hold his or her finger, but when he or she brought up, leave his or her finger so that he or she can hug his or her parent”.
