Prakash Jha’s upcoming project ‘Pareeksha: The Final Test’ is the latest Bollywood film to get a direct-digital release.
The film, which stars Priyanka Bose, Adil Hussain, Sanjay Suri and Shubham Jha, is inspired by true events. It is based on a rickshaw puller named Buchchi, who dreams of giving his son a good education. The film makes a sharp comment on our education system. Pareeksha is based on the experiences of former DGP of Bihar, Abhayanand.
Jha said, “Shri Abhayanand is an IPS officer and educationist who, while serving as the police chief in Bihar’s Naxal-infested areas, came across kids from those villages who were so bright with their native wisdom that they inspired him to begin coaching them to crack the IIT-JEE – the toughest exam which the young students must clear to be able to join one of the best educational institutes in the country. Their success had a great impact in the crime-infested badlands of Bihar and made a difference.”
He further stated, “I felt compelled to tell this story and we have found a wonderful streaming partner in ZEE5, a platform which will give this subject the reach it deserves.”
