Last year , I was awaiting the release of Super 30 ever since it was announced as I knew about the fantastic efforts taken by Anand Kumar in creating the Super 30 program (only 30 students are eligible to be part of it to crack IIT-JEE) and am glad that my patience gave in.

Super 30 tells the story of young Mathematician, Anand Kumar (played by Hrithik Roshan), who assist under-privileged kids in gaining admission to IIT through his Super 30 program in Bihar.
Directed by Vikas Bahl, who earlier made the memorable film Queen and the forgettable one, Shaandaar, Super 30 begins in a flashback mode, focusing on Anand Kumar’s struggles right from the financial constraints for which he could not seek admission to the Cambridge University, his father’s untimely death to selling papad to make the ends meet.
Vikas Bahl does a good comeback after the disastrous Shaandaar though Queen will remain his best work. Coming to the performances, – I cannot imagine any one apart from Hrithik Roshan playing the role of Anand Kumar. The actor breathes the character of the Mathematician as it was tailor made for him. Other support comes from Pankaj Tripathi who was equally brilliant as a corrupted politician. Aditya Srivastava as Lallan Singh, Mrunal Thakur who plays the Anand Kumar’s love interest and Virendra Saxena who plays Anand Kumar’s father were superb in their part.
Super 30 opened to Rs 11.83 crore on its first day and went on to collect Rs 75.85 crore in first week. Released in 3050 screens, Super 30 collected Rs 147.39 crore against a budget of Rs 60 crore, turning out to be “Super-Hit” at the box office.
Super 30 is produced by Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Madhu Mantena, Sajid Nadiadwala and Reliance Entertainment.
