Even while remaking a film from a Bangla hit, Bollywood cannot resist inserting some Mughal-friendly agenda into the movie. For example, here is a scene from Jeevan Mrityu (remade from a 1967 Bengali film ‘Jiban Mrityu’).

We are never told why:

– There is a Mughal history class within a romantic song.
– Does someone teach history in a class for Hindi Grammar?
– Which teacher uses ‘baap’, a crude word for father, in a classroom?

We also didn’t miss how the convent school teacher was all dolled up for the class. We can’t think of schools (including convent schools) where teachers and students don’t follow a restrained dress code.
