Prakash Jha’s Pareeksha: The Final Test to release on ZEE5

The film explores how quality education has been monopolised by the rich and remains inaccessible to the masses

Published: 22nd June 2020

Prakash Jha’s upcoming film, Pareeksha: The Final Test, will premiere directly on ZEE5. Starring Priyanka Bose, Adil Hussain, Sanjay Suri and child actor Shubham Jha, the film makes a comment on the education system in India. It explores how quality education has been monopolised by the rich and remains inaccessible to the masses. 

Pareeksha: The Final Test had its Indian premiere at the 50th International Film Festival of India in the Indian Panorama section. It tells the story of Bucchi, a rickshaw puller whose biggest dream is to provide a decent education to his son. His dream takes him on a dangerous path that could shatter all that he holds dear.

The film is inspired by the real-life experiences of IPS officer Shri Abhayanand, the former DGP of Bihar. 

“Shri Abhayanand is an IPS officer and educationist who, while serving as the Police Chief in Bihar’s Naxal infested areas, came across kids from those villages who were so bright with their native wisdom that they inspired him to begin coaching them to crack the IIT-JEE,” Prakash Jha shared. 

“Their success had a great impact on the crime-infested badlands of Bihar and made a difference. I felt compelled to tell this story and we have found a wonderful streaming partner in ZEE5, a platform which will give this subject the reach it deserves,” he added.
