This documentary-film features real-life stories to help youngsters with a wealth of information, inspiration, and insight.

This is a dedication to the Batch of 2020 and to every youngster in general who through the years have succumbed to the pressure and anxiety of being defined by just certificates and degrees.
Speaking about curating the documentary Anto Philip, Co-founder, Under 25 said, “Batch of 2020 offers tribute not only to the current graduating batch of 2020 in India but also to all students, educators, parents or anyone across the world who has, through the years, succumbed to the pressure and anxiety of being defined by just certificates and degrees. This one-hour power-packed docu-film offers a wealth of information, inspiration, and insights by chosen motivators and disruptors who are educators, employers, entertainers, and leaders from varied backgrounds and graduation batches, via thoughtfully curated conversations, speeches, and tongue-in-cheek interviews.
Sharing his thoughts on the ‘Batch of 2020’, Singer-songwriter Armaan Malik said, “This year hasn’t been an easy ride - the times are changing and all of us are learning to adapt in our own ways. My motto has always been to learn as I navigate through life - one step at a time and at your own pace, and I’m here to tell you that you’ll brave through all hurdles and find what is best for you. Take this documentary as a map for your future adventure, let it be the light in the dark, and prepare you for the life that begins here…today.”
In conclusion, Anto joined all speakers and celebrities in saying, “If there is one key message that this heartfelt film wants to convey to the youth, then it is this – the world needs us to be brave enough to un-conform. We must treat 2020 as a year of unknown opportunities that require us to break the shackles of our traditional ‘formal education system’ and on its debris, build a new India that measures success on its own terms.”
