To binge watch this Teachers’ day, here’s a list of our beloved Bollywood films that cover every aspect of the unique student- teacher relationship.


Bestowed with the par-excellence performance of all-time greatest, Mr Amitabh Bachhan and nonetheless Rani Mukherjee, Black is a story of a deaf-blind girl and her relationship with her teacher who himself later develops Alzheimer's disease. The movie shows unorthodox methods of teaching used by the male protagonist to teach the meaning of the word to the female protagonist.

Chak De India

Released in 2007, Chak De India gave goosebumps to the audience. The story revolves around the Hockey Player/Coach played by Sharukh Khan who led Indian Women's Hockey Team to win the World Cup. But the connection between the coach and the players shows that students should believe and follow the teacher as he/she only thinks of best for students.


A gem from the duo of director Siddharth Malhotra and actress Rani Mukerji, Hichki throws light on the education system and the right to education is a decent way. The female protagonist takes the challenge of teaching the worst class of the school and with her efforts, makes the worst student into the best.


Making the impossible possible is one of the many talents of a teacher, and a similar scenario plays out in Nagesh Kukunoor’s ‘Iqbal’. A coming-of-age film bearing Kukunoor’s signature treatment, it revolves around a deaf and mute village boy Iqbal, played convincingly by Shreyas Talpade, who overcomes various hurdles to fulfill his dream of playing for the Indian national cricket team. His dream would never become a reality had it not been for the supportive coach Mohit, played emphatically by Naseeruddin Shah, who made sure to meticulously guide the boy and never let him give up.

Super 30

The movie is based on the true story of Anand Kumar who teaches 30 such students every year who can't afford the fees of IIT coaching classes. The movie shows the struggles of Anand Kumar and the efforts he made for the sake of the right of education.

Taare Zameen Par

That this one made the list should come as no surprise, as Ram Shankar Nikumbh set the bar high for an ideal and sensitive teacher in our hearts.Directed by Aamir Khan and Amole Gupte, ‘Taare Zameen Par’ is about eight-year-old Ishaan suffering from dyslexia, and worse, nobody being able to diagnose it. As he struggles to cope with academics and is confused as a “slacker”, a new art teacher (Nikumbh) recognises his issues and comes to his aid. With remedial techniques and a whole lot of patience, Ishaan begins to steadily improve his basic reading and writing skills. Their relationship builds over time, and Ishaan discovers not just cleaner handwriting but a source of love and support in his teacher
