The first trailer of filmmaker Prakash Jha’s next, Pareeksha is here and the intense drama will hold your attention in the 48 seconds that it lasts. Pareeksha features Adil Hussain, Priyanka Bose and Sanjay Suri in lead roles and traces the hardships of a poor family struggling to secure a good education for their only child.
The video opens with Adil singing ‘Baba black sheep’ as he pulls a cycle rickshaw. His son is good at studies and they want him enrolled in an English medium school where he can secure education better than what he gets in the government school. How he is treated by the privileged, and even those round him as he sets out on this quest is aptly woven in the short video.

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... the toughest exam/test which the young students must clear to be able to join one of the best educational institutes in the country. Their success had a great impact in the crime infested badlands of Bihar and made a difference.”
