*The REEL Teachers*

Our teachers have scolded us , twisted our ears and taught us some significant lessons while shaping our personalities for life . Bollywood actors , have played their part in immortalizing teachers on the silver screen . The Cranky Virus of 3 Idiots , the sexy Chaandni of Main Hoon Na or the extra caring mentor of Darsheel in Taare Zameen Par . What is your pick ? Bollywood has always given Teachers an important role in the reel drama . The shades may vary from grey to gay , but they cannot be picked out of action .

Although the past have seen Teachers only being heartthrob and leaving the students smitten , Simmi Garewal in “Mera Naam Joker” , Sushmita in “Main Hun Naa” .

 Shah Ruk Kahn , (Mohabbatein) well the teacher who did everything else except for teaching , he was  focused on finding more girlfriends for his students .

Ram Shanker Nikumbh , Remember ? . He was quite hot choice when asked to couple of middle school students . The teacher that saw what the parents couldn’t in their child ( Taare Zammen Par) the approach of his won many hearts , we don’t know how much feasible his ways were , but he sure has impressed the young ones . “It would be great if fun and learning could be combined” , an eight class student Ravi suggested criticizing the present education system .

Aamir , as student also left an impact on many students , The 3 Idiots’s Ranchood Das Chanchad and the way he messes with his Dean Virus made the movie earn big time . “I don’t know about my favorite choice but am sure I don’t want a Teacher like Virus “ said an engineering student , Kalpesh .

There were many more teachers that left a gaping hole in our memory , Shahid and Ayesha in Paathshala , Shahid again in Chance Pe Dance  , Saif and Deepika in Aarakshan and Amitabh in several of his hits .

Some serious teaching was showcased in the critically acclaimed movie , Black . Amitabh Bachhan did a fabulous work with a kid on which most of the doctors had given up .  The movie got great appreciation and will always be a delight to watch . Inspired many kids to face the world and forget about their with  disabilities .
Stanley ka Dabba again took the audiences to the classrooms and displayed a new angle of teacher-student relationship .
“Iqbal gave me a lot of confidence , When a guy with no resources and stand up and represent the country in stadium , Why I can't ? “ a rhetorical question by Ram , Cricket team captain , DU .

All in all , Bollywood has moved from the the “Filmi” teacher to  a much more realistic and a figure of teacher which we can relate to .

So this teachers day , grab out for the CD’s of movie in which you have your favorite teacher  . Watch them and remember how big a part their scolding played in your life ? The sit-ups won’t hurt and the kneel down won’t be humiliating anymore . Happy teacher day to all .
