Second Chance at Dreams: A Review of "12th Fail"

2024-03-07

“12th Fail” is a 2023 Indian biographical drama directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. It tells the inspiring true story of Manoj Kumar Sharma, who overcomes failing his 12th grade exams to become an IPS officer, and Shraddha Joshi, who achieves her dream of becoming an IRS officer. The film stars Vikrant Massey and Medha Shankar in the lead roles.

Massey delivers a powerful performance as Sharma, capturing his determination and resilience in the face of societal pressures and self-doubt. The film doesn’t shy away from the struggles Sharma faces due to his lack of formal education, highlighting the importance of perseverance and the power of second chances. The supporting cast, including Shankar as Joshi, provides excellent support, fleshing out the personal sacrifices and unwavering support systems that fuel the protagonists’ journeys.

Director Chopra crafts a compelling narrative that balances moments of hardship with scenes of heartwarming triumph. The film doesn’t solely focus on the protagonists’ successes, but also explores the social inequalities and bureaucratic hurdles they encounter.

While the plot might be predictable for some viewers, “12th Fail” shines in its emotional core and its celebration of the human spirit. It’s a film that will resonate with anyone who has ever doubted themselves or faced challenges in pursuing their dreams.
