Unacademy’s latest IPL film emphasizes the importance of FOCUS
Unacademy, India’s largest learning platform* today released its latest film titled - Focus | First Law of Learning, highlighting another life learning from the cricket pitch of the Indian Premier League. In keeping with precedent, the film draws an interesting correlation between cricket and education and the need to stay focused. The 94 second long clip begins with the quintessential question, “Is baar IPL se kya seekha?.” The film intersperses memorable match moments from IPL comprising of catches, run outs and other on-field moments to deliver the importance of focus to achieve one’s goals. As the film narrates through these highlights, it drives the message that emphasises the importance of ‘Focus’ and having a persistent and determined mind towards learning. For instance, the film also showcases key shots of the players focusing on their catches and runs outs, despite various on-field distractions.
A key highlight of the film is the original soundtrack produced to further reiterate the message that focus is the first law of learning. The soundtrack has affirming lines like ‘Chahe Imtehaan ho Ya Khel ka maidaan ho Saara game focus ka hai’ and more to emphasise that whether cricket or academics focus makes or breaks a path.
