Somehow he manages to get admission in the school, but the things turned up worst when he gets indulged in criminal acts for paying the different fees and expenses of the school for his son that beyond his capacity. When Buchchi was placed behind the bars, the top police officer (Suri) gets to know all the facts and start teaching the kids in Buchchi’s Colony in his spare time.
The movie ‘Pareeksha’ is not just about the exams that Buchchi’s son was required to pass at different phages but it is about how a Hindi Medium student manages to prove themselves in such environment. It’s also about a story how a low caste suffers to get higher education in a society. The challenges are narrated in a very lucid manner.

His voice tone and accent are complimenting to his role. Priyanka Bose also has put her emotions in a great way. Shubham Jha as son has given a good performance. Sanjay Suri draws also did justice with his role as a police officer.
