Film Chalk N Duster opens with Annual Day Prepartions of Kantaben High School, where Dacnce Teacher Jyoti (Juhi Chawala) & Art Teacher (Upasana Singh Bharadwaj) are doing rehearsals with students for Annual Day. Twist comes when Head Clerk Kamini (Divya Dutta) tells lies to Anmol Pareikh (Aarya Babbar) who is a UK return , that She has done preparations for Annual day & Takes the honor of Principal.
On Getting Powers, Kamini increases fees , puts charge on Tea , Inorder to haraas Teachers so they on their own leave and go, So can appoint younger ones.
But Here comes twist , when She raised fingers on Vidya (Shabana Azmi) that she is incapable of teaching – Who has given free lectures & classes to students who can’t afford. These words came in ears of Jackie Shroff (Who is owner of No 1 School) & He sent Media (Richa Chaddha) to Kantaben School and Then you know “When Media is there, Truth can’t be hidden”

Direction by Jayant Gilatar is just Super. Great story line which is portrayed by sweetness and simplicity, and keeps it charm throughout.
Music By Sandesh Shandilya is sensuous especially “Aye Zindagi” & “The fear of Algebra” which guesses will remind you of Algebra and Geometry.
Character Graph : Juhi Chawla looks lovely as Dance teacher, which actually took me back reminded of my Hindi Teacher. Shabana Azmi (Maths teacher) and I can really remember lessons given by Naina teacher on Algebra.
TV’s popular artiste Divyajyotee Sharma as Mrs Pinto has given wonderful performance in her maiden hindi feature film. She excells in her role.
Aarya Babbar also maintains his presence even in his small appearance . Special Appearance by Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff and Richa is again Outstanding. And Last but not the least Vampish Divya Dutta , you are just thundering after Bhagbaan.
