Teachers’ Day 2022: A Look At 5 Onscreen Teacher-Student Jodis

It is that time of year again when students in schools and colleges get to play the roles of their teachers for a day while planning and executing special performances for them. We all have a teacher who we look up to and who teaches us valuable lessons about life. Their impact inspires, supports, and motivates us for the rest of our lives. Such teachers, who develop strong bonds with their students and help in improving the learning environment are really special and are remembered forever.

This relationship between a teacher and a student is frequently portrayed as invincible in films, especially in Bollywood. We’ve seen stories where teachers go beyond their duties to impart their knowledge to the students and make them capable of navigating their path in this world.

Vaibhav (Mayur More) and his Physics teacher, Jeetu Bhaiya (Jitendra Kumar), were Kota Factory’s most popular characters, and why not?

The plot of Black (2005) revolves around Michelle McNally (Rani Mukerji), a deaf and blind woman whose teacher Debraj Sahai (Amitabh Bachchan) works hard to help her understand the language and words and also communicate better.

Faizal “Faizi” Abdul Razak And Kareem Ustad (Ustad Hotel)

While discussing a teacher-student bond, we certainly cannot miss Faizi and Kareen from ‘Ustad Hotel,’ a popular Malayalam film.

The film then depicts Ustad as Fazi’s mentor, teaching Faizi the significance of food, love, and compassion in life.
