Bollywood fans can catch a glimpse of Eros International's forthcoming release Paathshaala, with this week's feature release Veer.

Paathshaala revolves around the Indian education system depicting various issues faced by children.

Starring Nana Patekar, Shahid Kapoor and Ayesha Takia in lead roles, Paathshala is a film with a message trying to answer several questions related to the sanctity of the education system.

It sheds light on the shortcomings and wrong doings in today's schools, where high morals and basic ethics associated with the teaching profession seem to have taken a back seat.

The film challenges several harmful notions threatening our children's future and our society. Paathshaala also stars popular child artists Swini Khera, Avika Gor, Ali Haji and Dwij Narendra Yadav.

The movie is expected to release in UK cinemas on 9 April 2010.
