Renowned industrialist and Mahindra Group Chairman, Anand Mahindra, has recently heaped praise on Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s latest film, ’12th Fail,’ calling it a must-watch and recommending it as the film of the year. The movie, featuring Vikrant Massey and Medha Shankr, has garnered widespread acclaim for its portrayal of the real-life struggles of IPS officer Manoj Kumar Sharma and IRS officer Shraddha Joshi.
Taking to social media, Mahindra expressed his admiration for the film, urging people to make it their top pick for the year. In a detailed post on X (formerly Twitter), he highlighted the movie’s exceptional plot, which revolves around the challenges faced by millions of ambitious youth striving for success in one of the world’s most competitive exams.
Mahindra commended Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s directorial skills, particularly applauding the casting choices and singling out Vikrant Massey for a stellar performance. The industrialist went on to suggest that Massey’s portrayal deserves recognition at the National Film Awards. “He was not just acting out the character’s life, he was living it,” Mahindra stated.
In his post, Mahindra emphasized the importance of great storytelling in cinema, asserting that special effects pale in comparison to the authenticity of a well-told narrative. He specifically highlighted a tense scene capturing the moments before a candidate enters the UPSC building for the final interview, describing it as a profound moment that addresses India’s journey towards building a new Bharat.
Expressing his gratitude, Vikrant Massey responded to Anand Mahindra’s praise, stating that the industrialist’s appreciation and recommendation mean the world to him and the entire team. Massey acknowledged Mahindra’s inspirational impact on millions through his commitment to excellence and compassion.
’12th Fail,’ inspired by the real-life stories of Manoj Kumar Sharma and Shraddha Joshi, has already been lauded by many as the best film of 2023. With Anand Mahindra’s endorsement, the film is likely to gain even more attention and recognition in the days to come.
