It’s time to learn about Tourette’s Syndrome, a neuropsychiatric disorder that manifests itself in motor or vocal tics. A kind of audible hichki if you like. Rani Mukerji returns to the big screen with a character who suffers from Tourette’s Syndrome and is determined to become a teacher in Hichki.
“Hichki is about an underdog and how you overcome the obstacles in life.” Rani Mukerji at the trailer launch
The just-released trailer shows Rani in good form, playing a resolute woman battling her condition, the bunch of underprivileged children she tries to teach, and the bias of a well-oiled system. While the story does seem a tad too familiar, the trailer promises a stirring performance by Rani and the child actors.

Incidentally, Rani played a girl with visual and speech impairment in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Black.
Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, Hichki is all set to release on 23 February.
