12th Fail is a film based on the real life experiences of a police officer Manoj Kumar Sharma. Manoj, the character played by Vikrant Massey, comes from a poor family of Chambal. His father faced suspension due to honesty in work. The headmaster at the school encourages students to cheat in exams. When DSP Dushyant, played by Priyanshu Chatterjee, arrests the headmaster, he tells Manoj that honesty is important in life. Inspired by Dushyant’s words, Manoj believes that an honest officer can have a positive impact on the society. The film traces Manoj’s journey to success and the challenges he faces.


Vikrant Massey is brilliant in his role. 12th Fail is a film that showcases his acting skills and the young actor brings tremendous punch to his role. The way he changes his character, faces challenges and insults and comes out on top is great to watch in the film. Vikrant’s performance in the climax makes you cry. This will be a big break in his career and Vikrant will carry this film on his shoulders. Medha Shankar is seen in an important role and supports the narrative well. Anant Vij ay Joshi, Sarita Joshi, Vikas Divyakirti and Anshuman Pushkar are perfect in their respective roles.

Technical Aspects

Shantanu Moitra’s music is impressive, and the lyrics are impressive too. Cinematographer Rangarajan Ramabadran skillfully immerses us in the world of Manoj Kumar Sharma. However, there is room for improvement in the editing department as there are several scenes which are narrated at a very slow pace. The production values are commendable while maintaining a clean presentation. There is no room for entertainment as the subject matter is intense and hones in on the human emotions of the character played by Vikram Massey. The production design and the world created are amazing to look at on screen.


After a long hiatus, legendary director Vidhu Vinod Chopra returned to direction with 12th Fail and delivered a memorable experience. The way he incorporated the real life story into the reel is brilliant. All the films of Vidhu Vinod Chopra are known for their strong acting and the same happens with 12th Fail. Vinod Chopra gets solid performances from his cast and gives the film a realistic appeal.

Films based on the education system have been made before and presenting the film in an attractive manner was not an easy task. But Vidhu Vinod Chopra makes sure that he adds humor to the key scenes and makes the scene when it is needed most. The best thing about 12th Fail is that the hero overcomes his challenges not by a stroke of luck but by continuously moving forward after every failure. All these scenes have been displayed in a very entertaining manner.

Another strength of the film is that instead of complaining about the system, the main character sincerely tries to believe in an ideal and incorporates it in his actions. Be it the fraud mafia working with political support to keep people deprived of information or the extremely slow wheels of justice that crush the spirit of the common man, Chopra has beautifully portrayed the underdogs striving to gain power.

On the other hand, 12 Fail also has a documentary feel to it. The first half hour is the world-building of 12th Fail but the scenes are narrated very slowly and take time to grow on you. But once the world goes haywire, 12 Fail is an emotional watch because of the way it’s described with such honesty.
