The movie is all about Anand Kumar, the famous mathematician who was not much into the limelight until Super 30 happened to him. He is someone who loves to study and likes solving mathematics problems. A local minister of his state congratulates him for his achievement in the college and promises him to help in the future whenever he needed any help in his studies. In the weekend, he would go to other city’s library to solve foreign Math journals up until a manager sees him and kicks him out of the library stating he has no right to be in the library. A staff of the library advises him if he wants to study in the library, then he should feature himself in an article which will help him become famous and provide a subscription to the journal.
Anand to become famous seeks the help of his father who works as a postman in a nearby post office. His father gives him all the support and helps in posting the math journal which he had solved. Anand does get to smell some success and gets his name featured in a local newspaper for solving the math journal. The success also helps him getting a letter from a professor named Richard of Cambridge University to come there and study. His dream of going to Cambridge for further studies gets squashed because his financial condition is not very strong. He, along with his father, goes to visit the local minister who promised to help him at the time of crisis, but the minister denies to help which brings in disappointment to Anand and his father. They both feel-dishearten about not getting any financial support and the savings are not sufficient to go to Cambridge for further studies.
One fine night, the family was having dinner together with the dismay of Anand Kumar not being able to go to Cambridge for further studies. While having dinner, his father suddenly collapsed and required medical assistance immediately. The family didn’t have the proper transportation to take him to the hospital immediately, Anand had to take his father on a bicycle, on the way towards the hospital; he witnesses the death of his father which was because of a heart attack. Anand then realized the importance of him in the family is as important as going to Cambridge. Hence he decides to drop the plan of going to Cambridge due to his father’s death and his family’s financial situation.
He decides to sell papadum on the local street for a living, up until he meets Lallan Singh, an assistant of the local minister, running a coaching center in the area. Lallan, hires Anand in his coaching center, as a teacher because he knows the kind of potential Anand Kumar has with him. Anand slowly starts to experience the lifestyle of a flamboyant personality as money was floating in his pocket, and the condition of his family lifestyle was also improving. While returning back home from a booze party, which was held by some prominent personalities, his bike went out of order, and he was given a ride back home on a rickshaw. The person who was pulling the rickshaw told him something which reminded him of his father.
The words from the person who was pulling the rickshaw were that the son of a king won’t become the king, now the king would only be the person who is the right candidate for calling himself a king. He soon recalled a scene about many underprivileged children who want to study but can’t because of their poverty. Hence, he decides to leave the Excellence coaching centre and opens his own tuition center where he teaches 30 kids coming from different background, who wants to study but couldn’t because they were poor and couldn’t afford. This brings a spat between Lallan and Anand, as Excellence coaching center, was losing out its charm and value because Anand Kumar was not a part of the center anymore. Anand Kumar was also getting immense support from his younger brother and his mother.
The downfall of Excellence coaching center forced Lallan and the local minister to plan his murder, but it couldn’t happen like an evil upon good was impossible to succeed. They were planning to kill Anand Kumar so that his students won’t appear for the exam and get a chance to enter IIT. Anand was attacked and is being hospitalized almost on the verge of death. Anand instructs his student not to fight with hands but to fight with their knowledge which he provided to them and defeat the goons being sent by the minister. While Anand gets treated, the student unites to fight the goons with their knowledge.
Finally, the goons fail in front of the knowledgeable kids. The next morning all the 30 kids enter for the IIT entrance paper, and they all pass successfully. Anand recalls his dad and seeks his blessing by watching up the sky. All the 30 students are grateful of Anand Kumar for making their life. A great human being and a very inspiring movie which I truly loved and wished for people like him to be more in the society.
