Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Zee Studios have released the teaser for their upcoming movie 12th Fail. This teaser will be shown in cinemas starting Friday along with Gadar 2. The film is based on Anurag Pathak’s bestseller of the same name, which is about the wondrous journey of IPS officer Manoj Kumar Sharma and IRS officer Shraddha Joshi.
The film is also inspired by the true stories of countless students attempting the world’s toughest competitive exam, the UPSC. Shot in real locations with real students, the film depicts the lives of UPSC students, their courage, integrity, hard work and the deep friendship they share.
This film is a tribute to everyone who sees failure as an opportunity for a #RESTART. In it, Shantanu Moitra gave a song called Restart. There are two versions, one by Swanand Kirkire and the other by Raftaar. Both songs give a new expression to today’s generation that never gives up.
Speaking about the film’s teaser, director Vidhu Vinod Chopra says that this film is a tribute to the honest officials who protect our country’s constitution and the students who study inspired by them. If this film makes even a few people strive for integrity and excellence, then I consider it a success.
While Zee Studios Chief Business Officer Shariq Patel said 12th Fail showcases the students’ challenges and longstanding friendship along with their more flexible lives. Directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, it shows the feelings of the young generation and their path to overcoming difficulties and winning. Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s film 12th Fail is slated for a worldwide release on October 27 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
