Prakash Jha


More than three years after helming the Priyanka Chopra starrer cop-drama, Jai Gangaajal (2016), well-known writer-filmmaker Prakash Jha is set to bring his next directorial venture to the audience soon. Jha has confirmed that he will next release a movie called Pareeksha.

Though nothing much is known about the project at the moment, it is said to be a story of an auto-rickshaw driver, who takes his children to school daily and dreams of giving them quality education.

Talking about the project, Prakash Jha reveals that it takes inspiration from real incidents, “Inspired by real incidents and real people, this was a story living and growing with me for some time,” he says.

The filmmaker goes on to add, “I am really fortunate to have had the collaboration of right actors and technicians to make this film. The shoot is complete… we plan to bring it to the audience later this summer.”

If we take a close look at the work of Prakash Jha, we find that most of his films have a socio-political undertone. It will be interesting to see if he uses the same genre trope in his upcoming film as well or something completely different is in the store.
