The trailer for Hrithik Roshan’s biographical drama Super 30, based on the life of Indian educationist Anand Kumar, released today and it looks like an intense tale of one man’s grit and determination.
Hrithik Roshan essays the lead role of Anand Kumar, a genius mathematician who decided to use his knowledge and talent to train economically underprivileged students for engineering entrance exams.
The movie also stars Pankaj Tripathi and Aditya Srivastava (of CID fame), along with Mrunal Thakur (who debuted with Love Sonia).
Though the subject of the movie definitely makes for an inspiring tale, it is yet to be seen if the film manages to stay true to the story or if it dramatizes the actual events for ‘storytelling’.
The movie was also embroiled in controversies when director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual misconduct, though he has now been cleared of all charges. People had also commented on how Pankaj Tripathi would have been a better choice to play the lead role than Hrithik Roshan.
Now that the trailer released, people took to social media to share what they felt about the biographical drama:

Bad Bad. Hamming so much.
Dark makeup, gimmicky expressions and mannerisms. So many problems.
Could have simply cast Pankaj Tripathi as Anand Kumar.#Super30

I was expecting Pankaj Tripathi to play Anand Kumar in Super 30. After seeing the trailer, I’m more convinced. It’s surprising that an yr ago we had another biopic, Sanju, which tried level best for likeness. Pankaj Tripathi is in the movie is a consolation.— Sabyasachi Mohapatra (@SAMdLaw) June 4, 2019
I wish pankaj tripathi could have played lead, he would have gave justice to the role— rahil kalia (@rahil_ka07) May 26, 2019
