Shahid Kapoor chooses IPL over dad's film, dances at IPL despite sprained neck

Shahid chooses IPL over dad's film, dances at IPL despite sprained neck

By Subhash K. Jha, April 28, 2010 - 11:21 IST

Shahid KapoorShahid Kapoor is in acute pain. Some days back he sprained his neck severely. Rather than rest it out, as suggested by the doctors, Shahid performed impromptu at the IPL finals in Mumbai on Sunday.

And the fact that he danced his way through the acute pain made his condition worse. Interestingly, he was a last-minute addition among the other performers namely A R Rahman and Bipasha Basu. Shahid wasn't really supposed to be performing at the IPL finals. 

Says the actor, "My Dad and I were supposed to head to Europe for a short shooting stint of his film (
Mausam). Then that volcano eruption happened in Iceland. So all flights got cancelled. In any case we were only supposed to shoot for a few days and I was supposed to come back to Mumbai. So we decided to cancel the stint in Europe." 

It was then that Shahid decided he would dance at the IPL after all. "I contacted the organizers the Moranis. And they let me perform. I had never performed in a stadium before. I loved the experience. I interacted with the live cricket crowd, went into the crowds sang with them. Great fun." 

Usually Shahid prepares for at least a week for any of his live performances. "But for the IPL finals I was ready in a day. It was a great platform. Dancing to a live cricket crowd and that too a crowd cheering for the Mumbai team, was an experience I wouldn't have liked to miss. So yes, I guess the cancellation of our shooting in Europe isn't something I regret." 

Shahid also doesn't regret dancing when he already had a sprained neck. It aggravated his condition manifold. 

Trying to play down the pain Shahid says, "I guess there's a downside to being spontaneous .I was in a bad condition." 

Shahid was on painkiller injections. "But I don't mind my condition being worsened. I am just glad I performed in front of that live excited audience. People accuse me of not being spontaneous enough. So here I was actually doing something without much though or rehearsals. And I loved it!"

Badmaash's Inviting you to join the Compan

Are the four characters of 'Badmaash Company' picked from real life?

Not many are aware that Parmeet Sethi, the actor turned director of BADMAASH COMPANY, wrote its entire script with dialogues in six days flat. Yes, you read it right: Six days only. And the four characters in the film - Karan, Bulbul, Chandu and Zing - are known to Parmeet; they're based on real-life characters. 

Anushka Sharma, who has a lot of hopes pinning on BADMAASH COMPANY, feels that the film would connect big time with the youth of today, who resort to an easy route to attain name, fame and riches overnight. "That's what attracted me to the film. Honestly, I wasn't even aware that Parmeet had written the script and was supposed to direct it, since Adi [Aditya Chopra] just asked me to go through it. It was much later, when I read the script and expressed my eagerness to be a part of the film, that Adi revealed the director's identity," Anushka tells me. 

Parmeet reveals that he got tired of television and was keen on pursuing film direction. "There's a little of me in each of those four characters," Parmeet says, who approached Yash Raj with his script the moment he was ready. The fact that Adi liked it and signed a 3-film deal with Parmeet, says it all. 

Parmeet feels that BADMAASH COMPANY offers loads of entertainment, but narrated in a new format. "Even the choice of actors proves that I didn't want to take the predictable path," he says. What about Shahid? He's known to act 'difficult' with his directors. "That's not true at all. Not once did he interfere or throw starry tantrums. In fact, he pushed his father's film MAUSAM ahead to accommodate BADMAASH COMPANY. That says it all," Parmeet refutes the rumour.

Paathshala Phoonk 2 fail to cast spell at box office

Paathshaala', 'Phoonk 2' fail to cast spell at box office

New Delhi, April 19 (IANS) Shahid Kapoor-starrer "Paathshala" and Ram Gopal Varma's "Phoonk 2" have failed to set the ticket windows buzzing. While the former got an average initial footfall thanks to Shahid's presence, the horror seems to have fallen flat.

The lukewarm response from audiences comes despite round-the-clock promotional activities for both the movies. While Shahid visited various schools to promote "Paathshaala", Varma organised a digitally monitored scare dare contest for anyone who would watch "Phoonk 2" alone in the movie hall - but in vain. 

"The content for both the movies has been average. While 'Paathshaala' was good with around 50 percent occupancy over the weekend, 'Phoonk 2' wasn't that good enough with just 20 percent footfalls," Amit Awasthi, manager (programming and operations) of Spice Cinemas, told IANS. 

"It was only Shahid Kapoor's presence that brought in the initial footfalls for 'Paathshaala," he added.

Amit Shah, chief manager (programming) of DLF DT cinemas, also had something similar to say.

" 'Paathshaala' was an ok affair and brought in on an average 35 percent footfalls while 'Phoonk 2' has been disappointing with only 15 percent occupancy. The movie did not meet our expectations despite its hype," said Shah. 

The debut production of choreographer Ahmad Khan, "Paathshaala" is the directorial debut of Milind Ukey. Revolving around the commercialisation and unethical practices related to the education system in the country, it also stars Nana Patekar, Suniel Shetty and Ayesha Takia. 

Popular child actors Swini Khare, Ali Haji, Dwij Yadav and Avika Gor play pivotal roles in the movie. 

"Phoonk 2", on the other hand, is a sequel to Varma's earlier film "Phoonk - The Black Magic Story". It has been written and directed by debutant Milind Gadagkar.

Actors Sudeep, Amruta Khanvilkar and child actor Ahsaas Channa play key roles in the movie that captures the fears of a family hostage to a spirit seeking revenge. 

"Both movies have nothing much in terms of business. There's no content in them," said Tusshar Dhingra, COO of Big Cinemas.

Added a source from PVR cinemas: "Both movies have been average but 'Paathshaala' is better in comparison to 'Phoonk 2'. While the former got close to 30 percent footfalls, the latter got close to only 20 percent occupancy. The business for both, however, is almost over."

Said Yogesh Raizada, corporate head (cinemas) of Wave Cinemas: "The weekend was average, as the movies have been average. While 'Paathshaala' brought in around 40 percent occupancy, 'Phoonk 2' has been close to only 30 percent."

Movie Review Paathshala a film with its heart in place

'Paathshaala' - a film with its heart in place (IANS Movie Review - Rating: ***)
By Subhash K. Jha

Film: "Paathshala"; Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Ayesha Takia Azmi, Nana Patekar, Anjan Shrivastava, Saurabh Shukla; Director: Milin Ukey; Producer: Ahmed Khan, Shaira Khan; Rating: ***

If a piece of cinema ever had its heart in its place, this is it. Don't let the sluggish pace, the absence of stylish shots and flamboyant frames fool you into believing that this is a film with no style.

The style behind "Paathshaala" is in its inner conviction. 

The obvious artlessness of presentation with the students and teachers of an imaginary school behaving with a bluntness that replicates the dialect of television talk shows rather than the realism of cinema, must not come in the way of our wholeheartedly acceptance of the film for what it is. An unconditionally sincere effort to understand why the country's educational system pressurises children into performance anxiety.

While Basha Lal's cinematography is free of poetic flourishes, the "Ae Khuda" track just sweeps you off your feet. That is not the effect this grounded and sensible film and its unhurried pace strive to achieve otherwise.

The storytelling is suffused with sensitive pockets. To cite some examples - in one sequence the veteran sports teacher (played ably by Sushant Singh) gets together students to climb on one another to make a human pyramid for the sake of media coverage. The callousness of the freelance journalist as he talks into the cellphone while the students sweat it out in the sun, smothers your cynicism about such manipulative drama in the narrative.

Elsewhere, a little boy (Dwij Yadav) is made to stand in the sun for not paying the school fees. And then that decisive moment where a crass ad-maker reduces a little kid (Ali Haji) to tears, just chokes you.

The music reality show agent, who auditions the school kids as though they are fish to be fried straight from the market, is almost caricatural in his grotesque commercialism.

Then you realise that real life has sold out to a kind of vulgar self-gratification that makes it look more like a soap opera than the soaps that we see on television.

There is an inherent wisdom in the homilies that "Paathshaala" serves up so sincerely. The narration is so laidback and detoxicated you often wonder if the director believes that the inherent harmony of real life can only be captured in leisurely grace.

Comparisons to Aamir Khan's "Taare Zameen Par" are inevitable. Though flawed and at times failed, the overview of the educational system in "Paathshaala" is macro-cosmic in its own right.

The plot meanders into various issues that plague the educational institutions before negotiating itself into a clumsily 'epic' climax where the whole country's media becomes interested in the politics of the school where the plot unfolds.

The unevenness of pace notwithstanding, there is no mistaking the film's earnestness of purpose. Every actor, young and old, pitches an honest and transparent performance. 

The stand-out (or considering the low-key pitch, should we say stand-in?) actors are Saurabh Shukla and Anjan Shrivastava. As for the children, let's not discriminate among them. They are all utterly charming. 

The film's comment on the corrosion and corruption of education makes space for little-little flirty romantic liaisons among the older students. Cute!

As for Shahid Kapoor, the guy says his Hindi lines as though he just thought of them and expresses his connectivity with the kids with a warmth and effortlessness that makes the other superstar teachers on celluloid look rather put-on in comparison.

Paathshala Movie Reviews

Paathshala Movie Reviews

By Taran Adarsh, April 16, 2010 - 11:00 IST

Pick up a newspaper or surf news channels and I'm sure, atrocities being committed on students by teachers/principals wouldn't escape your attention. Also do a Google and so many results on this topic would open up in a fraction of seconds.

Educational institutions - not all, but a few definitely - are in a crazy rush to create a brand for themselves and even parents [not all, again] are keen that their kids become scholars and whiz kids overnight. Resultantly, the child is not just burdened with a bulky school bag on his back, but also carries the burden of ambitions, aspirations and unfulfilled dreams on his tiny, frail shoulders. 

PAATHSHAALA merely touches the tip of the iceberg. It attempts to answer questions related to the sanctity of today's education system. It sheds light on the shortcomings in today's schools and how morals and ethics associated with the teaching profession seem to have taken a complete backseat. Let's not compare it with TAARE ZAMEEN PAR or 3 IDIOTS, although a few sequences, in these two trend-setting films, threw light on the pressures on students. 

PAATHSHAALA, penned by Ahmed Khan and directed by Milind Ukey, is well-intentioned. It has a lot to say, but the predicament is, what translates on celluloid is not razor-sharp. Of course, there are few defining moments in the movie, which do make you ponder on the plight of the educational system. But there are also portions - when the media steps in to boost the brand of the school - that are mumbo-jumbo. 

On the brighter side, the acting is distinguished. Nana underplays beautifully, Ayesha adds to the sunshine moments, but it's Shahid who pitches in a commendable and convincing act. 

Final word? PAATHSHAALA, made with noble intentions, could've been a splendid wake up call, but it runs out of steam midway! 

The story begins with a new English teacher, Rahul Prakash Udyavar [Shahid Kapoor], joining Saraswati Vidya Mandir School. Though he strikes an instant rapport with students and teachers alike, he realizes that there is something amiss in the school. 

Slowly, his doubts prove true as School Manager Sharma [Saurabh Shukla] makes many monetary obligations compulsory on the parents in the name of extra-curricular activities. He goes to the extent of punishing the students inhumanly when the new, unjustified demands of the school are not fulfilled by the parents. 

When Rahul unifies the teachers [Ayesha Takia, Sushant Singh] against the atrocities of school management, Principal Aditya Sahay [Nana Patekar] defends the management decision. This comes as a shocker to the teachers as Sahay is known for his dedication as an educationist for last 32 years, which has built the school's high reputation. 

The situation turns grave as the school management becomes over-ambitious with its growth and involves media planners in the extra-curricular activities. This demands the involvement of students in TV reality shows and many other media activities used for building up the school image in public, which starts reflecting on the students' stress levels. The pressure on young minds increases incredibly, leading to unexpected consequences. 

One of my childhood memories is of a few students being called to the principal's office and being reprimanded for not paying their school fees on time. In another instance, I vividly recall a student being made to stand in scorching heat, under the blazing sun, since he was up to some mischief all the while. The barbaric attitude was a way of teaching the student a lesson. 

PAATHSHAALA brings back those dark memories because the film encapsulates these two incidents on celluloid. The problem with the film is, it gets very real at times, but gets farcical as well. The participation of kids in media activities doesn't have a hammer-strong impact. The chilly portion and the director capturing it on camera, or the press photographer munchingsamosa as the kids get ready with a pyramid, looks unreal, despite being identifiable incidents. Even the climax is confusing. What is Nana saying in the concluding reels lacks precision. 

Director Milind Ukey has filmed some scenes expertly, but, as mentioned above, the film lacks the power to make you do a serious introspection. Hanif Shaikh's music is strictly okay. 

Nana is very much in sync with his character. Shahid displays the vulnerability and helplessness remarkably. Ayesha is a complete natural, as always. Amongst the plethora of teachers and students, Sushant Singh does well, Sushmita Mukherjee is serviceable and Saurabh Shukla is so effective, you start hating him for his repulsive attitude. 

On the whole, PAATHSHAALA is a well-intentioned film, but lacks clarity thanks to an uninspiring screenplay.

Paathshala is Mohabbatein meets 3 Idiots No ways Shahid Kapoor

Paathshala is Mohabbatein meets 3 Idiots? No ways Shahid Kapoor

By Joginder Tuteja, April 15, 2010 - 11:37 IST

Shahid KapoorHe is one of the few top actors in the actors in the industry today who is enjoying as many as three releases to his name in the first half of 2010 - Chance Pe Dance,Paathshaala and Badmaash Company. Also, if Milenge Milenge eventually releases soon then this number may well become four. Still, the actor chooses to call himself as 'unemployed' for the duration that he is not facing the camera. Through with the shooting of all aforementioned films, he has started preparing himself for his next film that goes on floors - Mausam (tentatively titled). Till then, he is happy to be getting his look in place (noticed the bearded look?) and promoting his last lot of films which are ready to arrive one after another. Joginder Tuteja catches up with the young man who has come a long way in the last 7-8 years and is confidently paving his way to find a place in the elite list of top superstars as he marches towards completion of a decade in the industry.

You have so much work in hand, right from seeing the release of your films, their promotion and preparation for your next biggie. Still, you call yourself unemployed. Isn't that paradoxical? 
Arrey yaar ek actor ki life badi ajeeb hoti hai. When you have too much work then you want to relax. At that time you feel ki chalo bahaut ho gaya, ab bujhe picture nahi karni kuch waqt tak. But then when you begin to take a break, you feel very uncomfortable. You start feeling a lot unemployed even though you know that there is something going to happen soon. Since I am not used to 'not working' for a good period of time, it becomes a very uncomfortable situation for me. 

But then you asked for it 
True man, but it all becomes very ironic because the fact is that I am not used to it. It is almost like going down from the fifth gear to the first gear. The whole pace of your life changes because when you are doing filming or promotion, at least you are surrounded by people. Otherwise you become all alone. 

Shahid KapoorComing to Paathshaala, there have been so many speculations around your presence in the film. Since the film is about children, there were rumours about you making only an 'extended guest appearance'. 
Let me put it this way that Paathshala may be small in comparison to some other films that I am doing and I may not be a quintessential hero here. However, it isn't as if I have a guest appearance in the film, as has been speculated by some. I have a substantial role that lasts for around 50 minutes in the film and that too from start to finish. I guess that's a good enough presence, isn't it? 

 I have a substantial role that lasts for around 50 minutes in the film and that too from start to finish 
May be that's the reason why Ahmed and Co. are promoting this film as a Shahid starrer. Doesn't that worry you because at the end of the day, you are not the central protagonist here? 
See, Ahmed is like a dear family member to me, and his wife Shaira, who is producing the film, is also very close to me. When opportunity came my way, I wanted to extend my support to the fullest. Having said that, after hearing the subject I realised that they were making something really relevant. I believe the message in it and I want that to reach out to the people. If you look at the education system, there are so many different kind of issues that kids are facing today. We should think about this because children are our future. I was moved by the very fact that that someone was making a commercial film about this rather than a documentary. 

Shahid KapoorYou sound emotionally charged about the whole experience. 
Exactly. I told Ahmed and Shaira to use me as much as they want for the film's publicity. If using my face gets even 10 more people to see the film then I would feel that I have been a part of something really relevant. It is a noble effort and I feel fortunate to be a part of it. I have seen the film and I am happy to have done it. 

Well, since you are so excited about the film, can you also confirm if the film is akin to Mohabbatein meeting 3 Idiots? After all the promos give that impression. 
(Comes up with a hearty laugh) Now that's the most original reference that I have heard. Maine Taare Zameen Par ka reference point toh suna tha but yeh first hai! Come on, there is no similarity here. We had shot Paathshaala well before the release of 3 Idiots. On the other hand, Mohabbatein was a love story about three students. Haan yaar theek hai, yahan bhi ek school hai but then that's about it. When people watch Paathshaala, they would realise that there are no similarities with anything that have seen earlier. May be as a journo, you want to come up with an angle but sorry, I don't see any broad generalisation here. 

In the film, you have Ayesha Takia as your co-star. Do we see any revival of Dil Maange More romance here? 
No, not at all. In the film, we are playing just colleagues. There is no romance angle in the film at all. Scope hi nahi hai!

When Shahid Kapoor went back to school

When Shahid Kapoor went back to school

New Delhi, April 14 (IANS) It was a holiday on account of Ambedkar birth anniversary Wednesday, but students of the Gyan Bharti School here were eager to attend school. Their reason - "Not every day Shahid Kapoor comes to school".

The young Bollywood heartthrob came visiting the Gyan Bharti, the school he attended when he was living in the capital. Students of all ages were eagerly waiting to catch a glimpse of their favourite actor.

"Today is my holiday but I wanted to see Shahid Bhaiya. He is my favourite actor and it's not every day that Shahid comes to our school," a thrilled 11-year-old Anush Verma said.

Geetika Chauhan, 10, told IANS: "I would have slept till late but I was told that Shahid was coming. I love him so much." 

It was a plain hysteria when the casually-dressed 29-year-old actor, wearing blue jeans and white T-shirt with a black jacket entered the school premises, looking very much like a school boy himself.

He went around the school to relive old memories and then entered the area where the students and teachers were waiting for him.

Thunderous applause and shouting greeted him to the school where he studied till Class 4.

"I'm proud to be a part of this school. My journey started here and the response I've got is simply overwhelming. I feel so nostalgic and it's a very special feeling to be back here," Shahid said.

"I still remember the time when I used to come to this school holding my grandfather's hand, asking the guard to let me enter because I was usually five minutes late," he added.

The actor was at the school to promote his forthcoming film "Paathshaala" which focuses on the issues related to the education system. It is slated to release Friday and also stars Nana Patekar and Ayesha Takia.

Shahid plays the role of an English teacher in the film.

"The film talks about very important issues regarding children, education and schools. Initially, I was just supposed to do a cameo but then I realised that if I do a bigger role, I will be able to speak about it better, take it to more people and create more awareness about the topics it speaks about," he said.

Shahid was also quizzed about his childhood crushes, to which he replied: "I was in this school only till Class 4 and at that age you are usually going through a phase when girls don't matter to you and you are only happy with your gang of boys."

"So I wasn't after anyone that time and similarly no girl was after me either," the actor, who is currently sporting a bearded look for his film "Mausam", quipped. 

Music Review Badmaash Company music an all male affair

Badmaash Company' music an all-male affair (IANS Music Review)
By Ruchika Kher

Film: "Badmaash Company"; Music Director: Pritam Chakraborty; Lyricist: Anvita Dutt; Singers: KK, Mohit Chauhan, Krishna, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Dayal; Rating:**1/2

What stands out in the soundtrack of Shahid Kapoor-starrer "Badmaash Company" is the absence of female singers. But apart from this anomaly, composer Pritam Chakraborty has stuck to his trademark style of energetic, fast-paced music.

The album contains four originals and two remixes.

The soundtrack starts off with a song called "Ayaashi" sung by KK. It is a catchy song with a heavy use of percussion. The upbeat track has all the qualities of becoming a hit with the youngsters.

It also has a remix version, which has nothing new to offer.

Next is a slightly off-the-road song "Jingle jingle", which has been crooned by Mohit Chauhan in his youthful voice. It begins with the strumming of the guitar and also has elements of rap in parts. The thematic lyrics make the song interesting.

Then there is "Chaska" sung by Krishna. It has a slight rustic flavour but fails to generate interest. It ends up as a very ordinary song.

"Chaska" also has a remix version, which is just a little faster-paced than the original.

With "Fakeera", the album takes a Sufi turn but with a rock base. Sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, it is an amalgamation of Indian vocals and westernised music. It is quite an appealing track.

The last number is the film's title track by Benny Dayal. The song has influences of music from James Bond films and is also musically similar to the first track "Ayaashi". The track is sure to become a regular at DJ consoles.

On the whole, the music of the film is average. Pritam has not experimented much and mostly sticks to his tried and tested style. The songs, however, could become hits on the dance floor.

Badmaash Company the different musical

'बदमाश कंपनी' का अलग संगीत

फ़िल्म 'बदमाश कंपनी' का एक दृश्य

बदमाश कंपनी यशराज बैनर की फ़िल्म है

यशराज बैनर की नई फ़िल्म 'बदमाश कंपनी' को संगीतकार प्रीतम ने अपने संगीत से सजाया है.

इस फ़िल्म में मुख्य भूमिकाएं निभाई हैं शाहिद कपूर, अनुष्का शर्मा, वीर दास और मियांग चैंग ने. फ़िल्म का निर्देशन किया है परमीत सेठी ने.

प्रीतम कहते हैं, "फ़िल्म का नाम ही बदमाश कंपनी है तो ज़ाहिर है ये बदमाशियों से भरी है. इसलिए गाने भी बदमाशियों पर आधारित हैं."

वो कहते हैं,"अय्याशी और पैसे के चस्के जैसे विषयों पर हमने गाने बनाए हैं. ये सब बहुत मज़ेदार हैं."

प्रीतम ने यशराज बैनर की फ़िल्मों के लिए पहले भी संगीत दिया है. इनमें शामिल हैं 'न्यूयॉर्क' और 'दिल बोले हड़िप्पा'.

बदमाश कंपनी में पाँच गाने हैं लेकिन मेरा सबसे पसंदीदा गाना है फ़क़ीरा.

संगीतकार प्रीतम

प्रीतम कहते हैं, "बदमाश कंपनी में पाँच गाने हैं लेकिन मेरा सबसे पसंदीदा गाना है 'फ़क़ीरा'."

प्रीतम बताते हैं कि फ़िल्म के दोनों मुख्य कलाकार शाहिद और अनुष्का बेहतरीन अभिनय करते हैं.

बदमाश कंपनी चार ऐसे लोगों की कहानी जो कि सिर्फ़ पैसा कमाने के मकसद से एक कंपनी खोलते हैं और प्रशासन को चकमा देकर ख़ूब पैसा बनाते हैं.

शाहिद कपूर को जिंगल जिंगल गाना बहुत पसंद है.

शाहिद कहते हैं,''जिंगल जिंगल' आज के युवा और उनकी आकांक्षाओं को दर्शाता है."

उनका कहना है,"फ़क़ीरा को राहत फ़तेह अली ख़ान ने गाया है और ये भी मुझे बहुत पसंद है. इस गाने में एक ख़ास तरह की रूहानियत है."

फ़िल्म की अभिनेत्री अनुष्का शर्मा मानती हैं कि वो बहुत ख़ुशक़िस्मत हैं कि उनकी पहली फ़िल्म 'रब ने बना दी जोड़ी' की तरह ही उनकी दूसरी फ़िल्म का संगीत भी अच्छा है.

अनुष्का कहती हैं,"बॉलीवुड में संगीत की बहुत अहमियत है और यही दर्शकों को सिनेमाघरों तक खींच के लाता है.''

'बदमाश कंपनी' मई में रिलीज़ होगी

शाहिद कपूर की पाठशाला

शाहिद कपूर

भारत की शिक्षा व्यवस्था पर नज़र डालती फ़िल्म पाठशाला करते हुए शाहिद कपूर को अपने स्कूल के दिन ख़ूब याद आए.

मिलिंद उइके निर्देशित ये फ़िल्म सरस्वती विद्या मंदिर नाम के स्कूल की कहानी है. इस स्कूल के प्रिसिंपल का किरदार नाना पाटेकर ने निभाया है और इस विद्यालय के अध्यापक हैं शाहिद कपूर, आयशा टाकिया और सुशांत.

शाहिद कपूर फ़िल्म के बारे में कहते हैं, "ये फ़िल्म अध्यापकों के उस संघर्ष की कहानी कहती है जहां वो बच्चों की पढ़ाई और खेल-कूद के स्तर को लगातार सुधारने की कोशिश करते हैं लेकिन इस प्रयास में उन्हें कई दिक्कतों का सामना करना पड़ता है."

शाहिद कहते हैं कि फ़िल्म में अध्यापक पढ़ाई, खेलकूद और बाक़ी अन्य गतिविधिओं के बीच एक सही संतुलन बनाए रखने के लिए जद्दोजहद करते रहते हैं.

शाहिद कपूर ने कहा, "इस फ़िल्म में कई ऐसे छोटे-छोटे लम्हे हैं जो छात्रों की समस्याओं पर रोशनी डालते हैं. उदाहरण के लिए अचानक स्कूल की फ़ीस बढ़ जाना. कुछ बच्चों के माता-पिता अचानक बढ़ी फ़ीस तय वक़्त पर नहीं चुका पाते और इससे बच्चे स्कूल में काफ़ी शर्मिंदा होते हैं."

शाहिद कपूर

फ़िल्म में अध्यापक बनीं आयशा टाकिया कहती हैं कि स्कूल में बिताए लम्हें हमेशा याद रहते हैं चाहे वो सहपाठी हों या एक अच्छा अध्यापक.

टाकिया कहती हैं, "जब आप स्कूल में होते हैं तो आप चाहते हैं कि आप जल्दी से बड़े हो जाएं लेकिन बड़े होकर समझ आता है कि स्कूल में बिताए साल ही आपके जीवन के सबसे यादगार लम्हे थे."

शाहिद कपूर मानते हैं कि आजकल की स्कूली शिक्षा की दशा पर बन रही फ़िल्म 'पाठशाला' एक चुनौती-भरी कहानी है.

शाहिद कहते हैं, "आमतौर पर लोग शिक्षा व्यवस्था जैसे मुद्दों पर फ़िल्म नहीं बनाते क्योंकि उन्हें लगता होगा कि ये बोरिंग और डॉक्यूमेंट्री जैसी होगी. ऐसे विषय को मंनोरंजक बनाना एक चुनौती तो है."

शाहिद कपूर कहते हैं कि वो ये फ़िल्म इसलिए भी करना चाहते थे ताकि लोगों का ध्यान आजकल की स्कूली शिक्षा से जुड़ी समस्याओं की तरफ जाए
