"It horrifies me that ethics is only an optional extra at Harvard
Business School". - John Harvey
Finally, a refreshing film that deals with disgusting realities of some
of these top-notch private schools in India: donation issues,
discrimination against children based on their parents' financial
status, the obnoxious atmosphere that reality TV shows create in a
school's learning environment and unbridled interference by corporate
trustees in school affairs.
The message of Pattshaala is simple - left to its own devices and
without proper checks and controls, the teaching profession, one of the
few remaining noble professions in this country, can also become victim
of the same corrupt mindset that presently plagues other institutions
especially corporate ones - putting profits before people, considering
the end more important than the means and the top-down strategy of
creating an environment of fear by dangling the carrot of money and the
threat of expulsions.
The film is indeed a hard-hitting commentary on the impact that can
take place over an entire organization (in this case, a school) when
the leader (the Principal, played by Nana Patekar) decides to
compromise core ethical values, and buckle under outside influence to
create an unlivable atmosphere in the school, for both students as well
as teachers. Against this backdrop, a lone protagonist (played by
Shahid Kapur) resists, rising up to unify all teachers and students in
questioning the decisions of the management and Principal, and giving a
live demo to their pupils that passive resistance is the only way to
achieve social justice.
An oft-quoted liner from the film, "The age of revolutions is not been
relegated to the past. It can occur anytime, anywhere today." Indeed,
for too long we Indians have relied on Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose and
other charismatic leaders of the independence era to find our ethical
compass as a nation- fact remains, with each passing generation, we
need a new set of leaders, young and dynamic, who are able to
selflessly dedicate themselves to refashion the youth's moral fabric.
And let me add, such people do exist. But, the media largely ignores
their contributions, instead focusing on uninspiring and irrelevant
stories that glorifies all sorts of scoundrels I see on TV today.
In summary, Patahshaala is a must-watch film, and a real exercise in
coming face to face with your moral backbone. The film poses an
interesting set of questions - what should one do when faced with
dilemmas that are faced by the school principal depicted in the film.
Indeed, the author is of the opinion that ethics should be a compulsory
subject in all primary schools of the country, and also institutions of
higher learning, no matter what the stream is, technical or non-
technical. Well, we do have something called "social studies" in
schools but in my opinion, the subject can be broadly restructured to
incorporate a strong ethical element, that too with practical lessons.
Past studies has shown that if children are exposed to ethical
decision- making through intensive class- room discussions, they're
more likely to grow up into well-rounded citizens as adults, and
question the wrongs and moral decay in society.
Performances by all lead characters were good, and thoroughly
convincing. A few characters, such as that of the repugnant school
administrator were a bit over-the-top and exaggerated, but
understandable from the point of view of the script - there's no point
in showing such characters in grey. Their underlying motive is
abhorrent, and should be exposed in the true light.
