In any society, teaching is always one of the most respected professions, and the relationship between teachers and students is also very special.

For years, Bollywood has delivered several films inspired by school and college life. Filled with a lot of bitter-sweet memories, these films help the audiences travel back in time to live in these beautiful moments once again.

Happy Teachers Day

Through films, we also have a chance to see some of the greatest on-screen teachers whom we can hardly forget. As Teacher’s Day 2019 is celebrating nationwide, on this occasion, we’re going to share some iconic teachers of Hindi films.

Super 30 (2019)

The first education film to be mentioned in the list is none other than the newly released but soon turned out to be a blockbuster Super 30. The film chronicles teacher Anand Kumar (played by Hrithik Roshan)’s life story and the struggles of this Indian mathematician. Anand who decided to quit his dream job at a top coaching center to bring underprivileged students closers to their aspirations.

He helps them clear competitive exams with his unconventional teachings and keeps doing this service in real life.

Hichki (2018)

The film, which is the adaption of Brad Cohen’s Front of the Class, follows a woman who suffers from Tourette syndrome. Hichki portrays how Naina (Rani Mukerji’s character) turns the most daunting weakness in her strength.

After a host of interviews and several rejections, she lands a job in one of the most elite schools. However, she then releases that her class has defiant and impish students who cannot keep out of trouble. Naina wants to ensure that her students can realize their potential and also defy the odds against them.

Taare Zameen Par (2007)

Aamir Khan’s 2007 blockbuster is touted as one of the most iconic films of the year as it won the hearts of millions of audiences for a great bond between a teacher and his student. It also brought home several prestigious awards at that time. The film talks about an 8-year-old boy who has dyslexia.

His teacher, played by Aamir Khan, not only helps him overcome this disability by adopting unique teaching methods, but he also changes the boy’s parents’ attitude.

Black (2005)

The list would not be complete without mentioning super hit Amitabh Bachchan’s Black. It’s not far off the mark to say Bollywood Big B delivered his most memorable performance of his career in this film. The megastar stepped into the shoes of a teacher who has to educate a deaf-blind girl (essayed by Rani Mukerji) and helps her figure out her true potential. His character then develops Alzheimer’s disease himself.

The most successful and touching aspect of the film is that it can show how a teacher can shape the life of an unfortunate girl whose family had already given up hopes.

Mohabbatein (2000)

The last name is hands down one of the first hit of 21st century, Mohabbatein. In the film, Shah Rukh Khan essayed the role of a music teacher who used to inspire his children on taking their own decision.

Perhaps, the school time is far away from us, but we hope with these films you could take on a trip down the memory lane. They’re bound to make you miss your teachers, your mentors who are important people in your life and help shapes your lives as well as careers today. Happy Teachers’ Day!
