Review of 12th Fail: In the movie’s reviews, Vikrant Massey’s outstanding performance in 12th Fail has been highlighted. It was written, “Massey is ready to deliver a magnificent performance; this is his career’s best performance so far. At every step, he brings countless shades to his character. As a teenager in school, he is unaware that copying is unethical. As a struggling UPSC student, he is filled with patience and determination, ensuring he has enough time for small jobs to support studying and staying alive, not fretting about sleeping for only three hours every night. Massey has embraced Manoj’s character in all its facets, effortlessly portraying it as per the script, leaving no room for any complaints.”
Regarding the movie, “The film is not just about the Hindi language but primarily talks about restarting life and its struggles. The common belief is that if one fails in academics, one I’m afraid I have to disagree with will fail in life. I disagree with that. Yes, education is the gateway to a better life, but academic success alone is not everything. If you fail, you can start again and still achieve your dreams.”
Speaking about the film, Vidhu Vinod Chopra mentioned in a statement, “In today’s times, I wanted to tell a story of hope, a story of never giving up. 12th Fail is all that and more. I laughed, I cried, and I sang while making this film. I truly believe that when this film hits theatres, it will receive universal acceptance.
