Plot

The story begins with a new English teacher Rahul Prakash Udyavar (Shahid Kapoor) joining Saraswati Vidya Mandir school, situated in the Mirpurkhas suburbs. He strikes instant rapport with students and teachers alike.

When Rahul Udyawar unifies the teachers (Ayesha Takia, Sushant Singh) against the atrocities of school management, the Principal Aditya Sahay (Nana Patekar) defends the management decision. This comes as a shocker to the teachers as Mr. Sahay is known for his dedication as an educator for the last 32 years which has built the school’s high reputation. The situation becomes graver as school management becomes overambitious with its growth and involves media planners in the extracurricular activities. This demands the involvement of students in TV reality shows and many other media PR activities used for building up the school image in public which starts reflecting on the students’ stress levels. The pressure on young minds increases incredibly, leading to unexpected and grim consequences.

Caught in the web of commercialization, the school’s students go on strike unable to take the pressure, and it becomes a national issue.
