What’s there in this film?.
Class of ’83 (2020) is a book based film with the same name as Class of ’83, a crime thriller story tells about the two sides of the police system (Law and Order).

The one-line story of this film is, a hero shunted to a punishment posting as a dean of the police academy, where he met his five first batch students with the same attitude like a hero was before, after that how hero weeded out the villain by his students, that is the full story.

Bobby Deol as Vijay Singh, surprisingly good and better acting compare to his previous movies, because I’m not seen his many movies, but I saw few of his movies compare to his wasted cameo roles this film is better.

The whole story sets in 80’s cotton mill strike times in Bombay especially when Prime minister Indira Gandhi and Trade union leader Data Samant had a fight.

Bhupendra Jadawat as Shukla, a good characterisation compare to the other four main leads, he also has few little importance and flavoured the story with his few funny bits as jerking off guy.

Hitesh Bhojraj, Ninad Mahajani roles is also not bad, Sameer Paranjape as Aslam Khan also had a little importance to the story.

The story narrative is nonlinear one that revolves around the flashback family tracks of the hero and the present.

Cinematography is also an above-average one that decently visualized that 80’s times and the soundtracks, there is no that much impact but ok.

What’s not there in this film?.

The main negative of this film is there are many loose ends without much impact, mainly that rushed climax, I don’t know why they have finished like this.

They also hyped the villain from the starting but the fact is weak villain role ends like a side villain, the reality is there is no that much gangster scene or villainism scene for him, he is just a wasted old man showed in the climax.

Another negative of this film is there is no that much deep in any of the parts of this film mainly that first half training scenes, the fact is they rushed the story as soon as possible without giving the good finishing to any part of this film.

Some scenes are poor execution without much impacts, this is the main defect of this film.

Star performance:

It fits Bobby Deol.

For his better performance compare to his other cameo roles.


The hero was a sincere cop he was shunted to a punishment posting as a dean of the police academy for the reason of while arresting a villain gang lost his colleague officers.

he started to train the future officers in that academy where he finds the five first batch students with the same attitude as a hero was before on his training.

So he decided to weed out the villain gangs by his students.


Class of ’83 (2020), a good story without proper execution and impact. my thought about this film is a one-time watchable track with few flaws.


Acting: 3.25/5.

Story: 3/5.

Cinematography: 3.25/5.

Music: 3/5.

Class of ’83 (2020) rating:
