“Hum dono engineers ka cinema ki duniya mein safar lagbhag saath hi shuru hua with… Masaan. “Saala yeh dukh kaahe khatam nahi hota bey!” A line written by him has over the years evolved to be one of the most noteworthy scenes of my filmography so far. I’m so happy and proud to be presenting the Trailer of ‘ALL INDIA RANK’… the Directorial Debut of my dear and incredibly talented friend #VarunGrover. Shine on mere bhai and my best wishes to the entire team,” Vicky Kaushal wrote while sharing the film’s trailer on his Instagram handle.

The trailer takes us into the world of IIT entrance exams and showcases the life of a 17-year-old boy from Lucknow preparing for India’s toughest undergraduate exam in Kota while dealing with his family’s high expectations. The stellar cast of the film includes Bodhisattva Sharma, Sheeba Chaddha, Samta Sudiksha, Shashi Bhushan, and Geeta Agrawal. ‘All India Rank’ is produced by Sanjay Routray and Sarita Patil, with Gayatri M as co-producer, and presented by Sriram Raghavan with music by Mayukh-Mainak and Varun Grover penning the lyrics.

Varun Grover’s directorial debut ‘All India Rank’ is a coming-of-age story about friendships, love, and competitive exams, set in the 90s. The film is all set to hit theaters on February 23, 2024. The reason why I’m excited for this movie is because my expectations from social dramas have increased ever since Vikrant Massey‘s ’12th Fail’ based on the struggles of UPSC aspirants. Here’s wishing all the very best to Varun Grover for his first film as a director.
