A Yash Raj Films production, Hichki is set to premier on February 2018 starring one of India’s most adored actresses; Rani Mukherjee. The famous Rani Mukherjee is making an appearance on screen after a long drawn out absence and once one watches the trailer of this magnificent film, we can understand why she decided to reappear on the big screen.

The movie is directed by Sidharth P Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma and is an adaptation of a Hollywood movie by the name of ‘Front of the Class’ which itself is based on a book by the same name. The story of Hichki follows an ambitious and driven Rani Mukherjee on a journey into unexpected territory all the while carrying with her the burden of a neurological disorder known as Tourette’s syndrome.

The journey that is depicted through Rani Mukherjee who is the main protagonist of the film sheds light on all the psychological and social issues faced by the students in her class.

The movie is called ‘Hichki’ which translates into hiccup because the Tourette’s syndrome causes her brain to go into shock when the neurons are not connecting as fast as they should resulting in her making a plethora of unexpected sounds and the most unexpected intervals in her speech. Despite this condition, she stays adamant that she is going to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a teacher.

There is an elite school system by the name of St. Noker’s at which she is finally awarded a teaching position but there is a catch. The catch is that she is given the class that has students from under privileged backgrounds who are rebellious, rowdy and to some extent disturbed as a result of their socio-economic background which clashes with the social status and class of the other students who attend the private elite school.
