The film tells the story of a couple who aspire to give their daughter the best education and gets accepted by the elite class society. The plot deals with social themes including education, parenting, class, social mobility, and language.

Produced on a limited budget of Rs 23 crore, the film became a sleeper hit in India and China. It is Irrfan Khan's highest-grossing Hindi film and the Bollywood debut of Pakistani actress Saba Qamar.

It is to be noted that 'Hindi Medium' ran into a controversy after makers of Bengali film Ramdhanu (2014), directed by the duo Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee, had launched a copyright case against the film with claims of story-line having a strong resemblance. However, 'Hindi Medium' won the case after the makers produced the appropriate facts and arguments.
