Hichki trailer: Rani Mukerji’s journey towards overcoming her weakness is inspiring

Rani Mukerji is coming back to the silver screen after a gap of four years, with some Hichki and loads of expectations. She is returning from her maternity break in an absolutely unseen avatar – Naina Mathur, who is more than a teacher to her students. We know that the Mardaani of Bollywood won’t have bargained for anything mediocre to return to films. Most importantly, if the film is distributed by her home banner Yash Raj Films, the project has to be different. And, indeed it is. Here is Rani, ready with yet another powerpacked performance.

The trailer of Rani Mukerji’s much awaited Bollywood comeback Hichki was launched in Mumbai today. The makers released the trailer via a live video on YRF’s official Facebook handle, in the presence of Rani herself. Hichki is directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and has been produced by Maneesh Sharma. The film is set to release on February 23, 2018.

Hichki highlights the issue people face after being tagged underdogs and has Rani at the core of its plot. It celebrates self-belief, the resilience of human spirit and hope. Its trailer shows the 39-year-old actor as a teacher of a group of ill-mannered students who are out to bully her. Rani, on her side, suffers from Tourette syndrome, which gives her regular hiccups, something that many see as her weakness, but she doesn’t let this take away her confidence. She takes up the challenge of not just finding her own inner strength, but also helping her students find the correct path in life.

It is quite pointless to say, but Rani is back in fine form as the lady who never lets her ‘hiccups’ come in the way of her teaching ambition. The plot looks to be a really good platform for her to return and win back her fan-base. She also has an amazing array of actors like Neeraj Kabi, Shiv Subramaniam, Asif Basra and those talented kids as the supporting cast.

Hichki is directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, who earlier made We Are Family with Kajol, Kareen Kapoor Khan and Arjun Rampal. The movie is produced by Yash Raj Films and is scheduled to release on February 23, 2018.
