A person can be successful in two ways; one is luck another is hard work. If you are not lucky then hard work is the only option left. This is the message which Hindi Movie Nil Battey Sannata gives.
Chanda Sahay (Swara Bhaskar) is a poor maid but she has a dream. She wants her daughter Apeksha Sahay aka Apu (Ria Shukla) to become something in life but not maid like her.
Apeksha is a naughty girl like any other child but she knows that because of their poverty her mother will not be able to arrange money for her higher studies. She is prepared to be maid and this is the reasons she doesn’t take much interest in studies.
Chanda Sahay faces tough challenge to convince her daughter Apeksha but anyhow she is able to succeed in her plan. Apeksha studies well and becomes an IAS officer one day.
Nil Battey Sannata focuses on many things especially the fact that one should see dreams in life. We can’t achieve something until we see the dreams.
This is fact that education has become unaffordable for the poor. Education has become business. But this doesn’t mean that poor should not study. Even though they need to study in Government schools but still they have chance to rise in life.
In order to inspire her daughter to take interest in studies, Chanda Sahay decides to take admission in school. It shows that if you have will power then there’s no age restriction for anyone to start his / her studies. Anytime is a good time.
Some of the classmates of Apeksha were not doing well in studies. But the moment they come in the company of Apeksha’s mother, they starts doing well. This film teaches us a lesson as how our company can change our view towards life.
In life we need to be surrounded by good people. One always looks for right advice. Dr. Deewan (Ratna Pathak) provides right guidance and all kind of help to Chanda Sahay.
One need to stay grounded and should be helpful to other people. District Commissioner Sanjay Suri’s role describes how a public servant can help others especially the poor ones.
A teacher’s duty is to guide and encourage students especially those who doesn’t do well in studies. We find those kinds of teachers very rare who try to understand the students’ feelings and emotions.
If you decide something in life, nothing is impossible. The road to success is not easy but it’s quite achievable. A maid works over time and does multiple jobs to make some money so she could ensure good education to her daughter.
One of the most important lessons from this film is that girls are also equally important. If treated well, they too can achieve great in life.
