The story of Pareeksha revolves around a poor rickshaw-puller who dreams to provide quality education to his son and faces hurdles in the path.

Who else but Prakash Jha can flawlessly illustrate the struggle of a poor man for the better education of his son. Famous for his directorial ventures like Aarakshan, Satyagraha and Jai Gangaajal, Prakash Jha is back with this outstanding theme in Pareeksha #SapneSachKarenge
Pareeksha is based on the real-life story of children in a Naxalite affected region of Bihar, and the former Bihar Director General of Police (DGP) Abhayanand helped Prakash Jha in the research for the theme.
Prakash Jha told the media,” Mr Abhayanand told me that when he was posted in Jehanabad as senior superintendents of police (SP), he used to often go to villages in Naxal-affected areas and would spot a bunch of kids whose intelligence used to bowl him out. So, he started chatting with them and asking questions and encouraged them to come for special coaching, which he arranged in the town. Some of them were so intelligent that they qualified for engineering colleges.”
Pareeksha was supposed to be released in theatres but due to COVID19 and repeated postponement, it will be premiered on ZEE5 on 6th August.
“Fact: Abhayananad along with famous Anand Kumar conceptualised ‘Super 30’ to coach poor students to crack IIT!”
