Directed by Vikas Bahl, Super 30 is based on the life of Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar who runs the famed Super 30 program for IIT aspirants from underprivileged sections of the society. Hrithik Roshan plays Anand Kumar in Super 30. The film also stars Amit Sadh, Mrunal Thakur, Pankaj Tripathi and Johnny Lever.
SUPER 30 has an excellent first halg; everything about it is perfect, keeps you engrossed, but the movie lags in the second half. Like Article 15 caste could have been a major underlying theme of the movie, but it gets sidelines by the time the second half starts and the movie turns out into a typical good vs bad fight. It seems, the makers lacked focus in the second half of Super 30 (not sure if it was due to the controversy surrounding the director Vikas Bahl). Despite the flaws, the film has high emotional quotient and Hrithik Roshan is just too good in the movie. The movie should generate a good word of mouth.
The songs of the movie are just about ok – Jugraafiya is melodious, but its the Niyam Ho song (plays in the background most of the time) that gives goosebumps.

While the narrative does have its flaws, ‘Super 30’ is a human drama and the story of a teacher who triumphs over the many challenges that life throws at him, to set an example for the world to see. Just for that it’s worth a watch.

That director Vikas Bahl despite having superstar Hrithik Roshan in his cast steers away from giving Super 30 a filmi touch, opts instead for presenting acts of integrity and courage as they occur in life, is laudable. Like the instance when Kumar (Hrithik Roshan) in order to bring home the bacon has to resort to selling papads on a bicycle. Or, when he quietly lets go the love of his life for fulfilling a self-imposed duty. The film is certainly better off in choosing realistic heroism over the superheroism that Hindi cinema is so accustomed to.After all, as the famous saying goes—“Not all superheroes wear capes.” Super 30 is the story of one such.

Mathematician Anand Kumar coaches 30 aspirants from poor families free of cost every year for the JEE entrance exam, for admission to the prestigious India Institute of Technology IIT colleges in India. He has sent hundreds of candidates to the prestigious IITs in the last 15 years.
“Super 30 talks about the power of education to usher in a silent revolution and bring about generational change. It is the best bet to beat poverty and help build an egalitarian society by giving the deserving their due and rewarding merit. I am confident the film will become an inspiration for many from the underprivileged sections of the society,” Anand Kumar
Director Vikas Bahl (has also directed Queen) put in a lot of hard work in the making of the film. He visted remote villages in Bihar and spoke to the family members of the students in order to get a feel of the real-life situation there.
Vikas Bahl was earlier accused of sexual harassment as a result of which the directing credit for the movie was taken away from him. However, after an internal complaints committee cleared him of all charges, he has been reinstated as the director of the film.
