Hichki opened to mixed reviews on March 23. The Siddharth P Malhotra-directed film is based on Brad Cohen's autobiography How Tourette Syndrome Made Me the Teacher I Never Had. In the film, Rani Mukerji plays the role of a teacher suffering with Tourette syndrome. Several of Rani Mukerji's colleagues in the film industry hailed her performance in the film. Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor even dedicated special social media posts in Rani's praise.
Film critic Saibal Chatterjee in his review to NDTV, gave Hichki two star out of five. He writes, "Rani Mukerji's energetic, engaging performance apart, Hichki is a huff-and-puff show marked by too much mush and fuss. But it has just enough to keep tearjerker junkies interested."
Prior to Hichki, Rani Mukerji was last seen in Mardaani (2014).
