This 1993 film is perhaps one of the best one made on student-teacher relationship. Directed by Mahesh Bhatt, it starred Naseeruddin Shah, Pooja Bhatt, Atul Agnihotri and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles. The film is still revered for its impeccable music and super acting performances.

The film was based on the life of a blind and deaf girl. It depicted how her relationship grows with her teacher who himself later develops Alzheimer’s disease.
Taare Zameen Par
Mr perfectionist Aamir Khan in the role of a teacher will be surely remembered by all.

Aamir plays the art teacher who is the first one to detect that the child (Darsheel Safari) is dyslexic and helps him to overcome his disability.
Chak De! India
Shah Rukh Khan outdid himself by playing the women’s team hockey coach in ‘Chak De! India’. The superstar displayed a completely different aspect of his acting prowess on-screen. It was a delight to watch SRK play the hard task master to trains the women’s team in winning the match for their country. What a coach you played Shah Rukh. This is considered to be one of his best performances on the reel.
Although it is majorly remembered for its love stories, it was megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s character of Narayan Shankar, who is the head of the Gurukul is unforgettable.
