'Nil Battey Sannata' Tweet Review: Heartwarming and Thought Provoking

'Nil Battey Sannata' caught most of our attention when the film's trailer released. A poignant story of a mother trying to educate her daughter while fighting the odds is something that we have seen before. But Ashwini Iyer Tiwari's film takes the unusual turn when the mother herself gets enrolled in the same school like her daughter to finish her basic education.

Featuring Swara Bhaskar, Pankaj Tripathi and Ratna Pathak Shah, the film has already garnered critical appreciation at various international film festivals. The film has been produced by Anand L Rai and is said to be a Hindi remake of a Tamil film called 'Amma Kanakku'.

Bhaskar is known for delivering powerful performances in films. This would be the first time that the actress will play a mother of a 15-year-old on screen. Will the film be able to deliver its intended message? Will Bhaskar performance woo the audience once again? Shomini Sen of News18.com was inside the theatre to find out.
