Rani Mukerji starrer Hichki movie review: Check out Bollywood's verdict

New Delhi: Bollywood's powerhouse of talent, Rani Mukerji who was on a brief sabbatical post pregnancy, is back and how! The actress is now ready to entice her fans with the much-awaited film of 2018, 'Hichki', which releases today. The special screening of the film was held for Bollywood biggies in Mumbai ahead of its release and the actors just can't stop talking about it.

Rani, who is known for picking up socially-relevant subjects, has done it yet again. In the film, she plays a teacher, who is suffering from Tourette syndrome, a nervous system disorder involving repetitive movements or unwanted sounds and how she struggles to find herself a perfect job.

Talking about Hichki, producer Karan Johar took to Twitter and wrote,"#Hichki takes you back to school and gives you life lessons in such a nuanced and beautiful way! Well done @sidpmalhotra for directing this film with such an assured hand and with such sensitivity! Must watch!!! #hichki."

In another tweet, Karan added, "#Hichki is a feel good and extremely sensitive film....addresses a disorder with dignity and strength....#RaniMukerji is the soul and life of this film! She is absolutely brilliant!!!! And reminds you of her exceptional talent again!!!!."

Actress Madhuri Dixit, who reportedly got teary-eyed while watching Hichki, Instagrammed to say: "Hichki is a moving and heart-warming film helmed by a brilliant story with a wonderful cast. A strong content driven film, very well directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and of course another stupendous performance by Rani. Kudos to Team Yash Raj Films."
