Review of ’12th Fail’
At every step, he brings a myriad of shades to his character. As a teenager in school, he is oblivious to the fact that cheating is immoral.
As a struggling UPSC student, he is full of grit and determination and doesn’t mind sleeping three hours every night to ensure he has enough time to study and do petty jobs for survival.
Massey owns up Manoj’s character in all aspects that you’d expect and performs it to the word T leaving no scope of any complaints.”

Talking about the film, Vikrant told , “The film is not just about the Hindi language, but the film mainly talks about restarting life and its struggle.
The common perception is that if one fails in academics then they will fail in life. I don’t agree with that. Yes, education is a gateway to a better life but only academic success is not success.
If you have failed then you can restart and still achieve your dream.”Talking about the film, Vidhu Vinod Chopra said in a statement, “In today’s times, I wanted to tell a story of hope, a story of never giving up.
“12th Fail” is all that and more. I laughed, cried, sang along, and had fun making this movie. I truly believe that this film will find a universal connect when it comes out in theatres.”
