Hindi Medium focuses on the dilemma that every parent faces when their child reaches the age where they need to get an admission and attain the utmost education possible. Adolescent Raj Batra (Irrfan Khan), an assistant at the local tailoring shop, would admire Mithoo, short and sweet for Mita (Saba Qamar), while she remained oblivious, smitten by her own buoyant youthfulness. Raj, Mithoo’s silent, distant beholder, treated her like a fabulous creation of god that emitted joy and needed looking after. When Mithoo wanted a kurta stitched with a deep-cut back, he got it done despite masterji’s disapproval. And on rainy days, he left umbrellas on her route — umbrellas with shiny, happy baubles strung to it — and smiled while getting drenched in the rain. Then they grew up — she, a college graduate who knows English a little less than she liked; he, the Hindi-medium owner of designer replicas lehnga-choli store in Chandni Chowk — and eventually married.
