3 idiots is epic one after that tare zameen par.Both shows the pressure of education. Helplessness against society rules and the way to live life like real students. Do whatever you like and like whatever you do.
You can include ‘Hichki’ too . It is a movie which revolves around a teacher (Rani Mukherji) who tries to inculcate tough topics with everyday routine of economically backward children who do not want to study at all.
These all are very nice movies based on teacher and student.
