The film is directed by Ananth Mahadevan and is a hard look at the education system in India and is slated to release on 24th June,2016. The film features Tannishtha Chatterjee and Amaan Khan in lead roles with Joy Sengupta, Jayati Bhatia and Vinay Jain in supporting roles.


Based on actual experiences of parents, teachers and students, the story is told through the eyes of a school teacher (played by Tannishtha Chatterjee). She teaches Physics in the ‘D’ division where ‘D’ is sarcastically referred to as ‘Duffers’ by both the students and other teachers. How she tackles a system to set her own terms for her students, forms the crux of this thought-provoking film. The rebellion of the teacher and her students make it a relevant and contemporary movie and a must-watch for every child, parent and teacher!
