It is said that in India, every street, every village and every town has a student who dreams of being an IAS or IPS officer. To become one, they have to pass ‘the world’s toughest entrance exam’ – with a success rate of 0.1%. If there was ever an impossible dream, this was the one.
12th Fail – based on a bestselling novel of the same name – is the story of Manoj, a Hindi medium student who embarks on this quest with very little money and no knowledge of English. On his journey from Morena to Mukherjee Nagar, he encounters defeats, disappointments, energy, enthusiasm, fraternity, friendship. And love.
12th Fail is not just the biography of one honest man’s journey towards a better India. It is a story inspired by a million spirited Indians who refuse to accept defeat, who restart their lives every day.
