REVIEW: With a little help from his TV reporter/lawyer love interest Rashmi Hazarika (Alismita Goswami), Amit changes the fate of a government-run school in one of the remote hamlets of a north Indian state. But, since his noble intent of uplifting the downtrodden school children did not go down well with the local politician (Ashok Samarth), so he finds himself caught in the middle of a scandal concocted by the rich and the powerful.
‘Blackboard vs Whiteboard’ is one of those films that has all the ingredients required for a decent social drama to work on silver screen. But the film’s length, coupled with some very bland acting and cliché-ridden script, makes it a feeble attempt at something that needs immediate attention – corruption revolving around Indian education system.
Seasoned actors like Raghuvir Yadav, Ashok Samarth, Akhilendra Mishra try to save the film, but the other aspects of this social drama bring about its downfall. ‘Blackboard vs Whiteboard’ touches upon an alarming topic but its execution and introduction of various sub-plots, along with a lousy and yawn-worthy courtroom sequence, make it pointlessly mediocre.
