Inclusivity gets double attention – in jobs and in education; of people with speech disabilities and of people from a low-income background. And this is always welcome. The plot does look a lot similar to Freedom Writers with additional constraints for characters that could make it either very interesting or a tad too melodramatic.
As it stand now, though, I am looking forward to it with a pinch of salt. At some point in the trailer it looked like the film is inching towards patronising. A good beginning is at least I don’t see Rani Mukerji break into song to overcome her speech disability. That’s one stereotype broken. Here’s hoping for more.
