Every father dreams of providing his child with a good education. But with education slowly becoming a private enterprise, only the rich can afford to provide the best quality education to their children, while the poor are sidelined. Prakash Jha's latest film Pareeksha: The Final Test, is based on this important topic. The first teaser of the film makes it evident that this will be another heart-wrenching story on a social issue, like most of Jha's movies.
