Blog and Video Description: In this episode of the Mattacritic, I will be reviewing and analyzing the movie called World’s Best that is currently on Disney+. I will go over several topics in this episode. The movie will begin with Prem Patel who is the son of Priya and Suresh Patel having a dream competing at the New Jersey Mathlympics. He is taking the pen in his hand, and he suddenly takes it apart ready to compete. One of the sportscasters is saying that “Prem Patel has been dominating since the first equation. The other one says, “I have never seen anything like this young man. He bleeds numbers.” The first one that said Prem Patel has been dominating since the first equation, says, “He is putting equations on the board that have parenthesis”. He will learn from his mother that his father loved to rap. This movie will deal with him learning that Hip Hop is in his DNA like Math is. I will give you my rating at the end of this review. I hope this episode will inspire you to read, watch, and learn.

As was mentioned before, Prem Patel has a dream that is at the New Jersey State Mathlympics and that he has been dominating the tournament. He is walking to the table after he puts the equal sign on the board. The sportscaster says, “Hold the phone. A little bit of a changeup here.” Prem is walking to the table where his teacher is, and his best friend Jerome is. Prem Patel is having a high five moment with both his favorite Teacher of Mr. Oh and his best friend of Jerome. Prem Patel picks up Claire’s chocolate milk and jugs it down like it is water as one of the sportscasters would have pointed out. The first one who said he dominated this contest since the first equation, says, “What a showboat.” He walks back and puts the answer down, and the crowd goes wild. But this is where his dream changes, and Brooklyn who is a bully makes fun of Prem Patel and says, Math is for losers. Everyone leaves once he says that, and the room goes dark. Claire walks up to him and opens her mouth and starts ringing like an alarm clock. This is where Prem wakes up from his dream and the clock says 6:00 AM.
Prem Patel looks at his posters where they have some of the best Math minds and says, “The World’s Best never rests”. He gets up and goes to the bathroom to take his shower. Before he gets in there, his mother asks him, “Did you have another Math dream?” Prem tells her yes that he did. She asks him, "did you win?” He tells her that he did. She tells him, “Nice”.
His mother Priya Patel puts her ear buds in her ears and starts listening to a podcast on her phone and starts making his breakfast. She cooks his eggs and tells him your egg whites are on the table. Prem Patel is telling his mother, “Have you considered my proposal of having a Pop Tart for breakfast?” She tells him, “Have you considered living in reality? You need brain food today.” Priya Patel is struggling with the loss of her husband emotionally and she is hoping by listening to this Podcast that she can move on from the loss of her husband of Suresh Patel.
Prem later gets on the bus to go to Delta High School. Before he got on the bus, his mother was testing him on square roots. Prem can answer the square roots of most numbers without needing the calculator. Priya tells this girl who is making fun of her son that the last girl that ate Pop Tarts for breakfast had no teeth. "There is no tooth fairy for that”.
Prem is in the high school for the Math class that is a 11th grade class. He passed the entrance exam to get into the 11th grade Math class. Ms. Sage welcomes the students and tells them that the deal she makes with the class. The students who participate in the Mathlympics team and they finish in the top 3 of the New Jersey Mathlympics State Final will get an automatic A. They were destroyed the year before and finished dead last.
Ms. Sage gives them a math quiz for them to solve and asks them to finish the equation. Prem Patel is the only one that finishes the quiz. Claire is in the class and was working on it but did not finish it. They both get on the bus to go to Junior High, and Claire sits with Prem Patel, shakes hands with him, and congratulates him on finishing the quiz. They are both at Delta High School for the Math class and take the rest of their classes at the Junior high school.
At the Junior High School, Prem Patel is greeting his favorite teacher Mr. Oh. Prem Patel is later at the track and field that has football field with it. This is common as I remembered when I attended middle school that my middle school of Quail Hollow had track and field with a football field. Prem Patel is with his best friend Jerome who he helps to stretch his hamstrings for P.E. Jerome later tells Prem that he needs a break as he is with Amanda. Jerome does not want to be known only for doing well at school. He wants to be known for other things like dancing. Jerome will start hanging out with Brooklyn and Sharn even though there were both mean to Prem and Jerome when they were both in the sixth grade. Jerome wants to be a dance guy as he texted Prem a video that he did on TikTok.
It is not bad when a person wants to explore other skills that he or she may have. It gives a person a chance to find out if they have that talent or not. Even if it is not perfect, a person must practice it if he or she wants to be good at it. This is what Jerome is doing. People can have a falling out and this happens to Prem and Jerome. When I was in Elementary School, this happened to me, I had a falling out with one of my friends. We later worked it out.
Prem Patel later gets home, and he is feeling down which is understandable. If any person had the day that Prem had, it would be hard to say the least. He is only 12, and for a 12-year-old to have your best friend say that he needs a break from you is hard. He tells his mother that he is the only one who finished the quiz that was to solve the equation when he was in his math class.
Prem, while at the table asks his mother about his dad as he points out this is for his homework assignment. The homework assignment was for Prem Patel to figure out the equation of himself and what makes him who he is. He is supposed to include all the elements of his life that make him who he is. Priya, his mother claims that Suresh would want us to be happy and not dissolve like some caterpillar. Prem needs to know this, so he knows who he is.
Priya Patel tells her son Prem that I met your father at a hip hop club. The picture that is in their house is right near the table where they both eat. The picture is a picture of Priya and her husband Suresh taken at the Leopard Lounge. Priya tells her son Prem that your father was one of the best rappers that she ever saw. She finishes the story at that after she told Prem that she let his father buy her that drink.
This will cause Prem Patel to become curious about his father Suresh Patel. He will pull out the box that his mother Priya put in the closet. He will find tickets to concerts by Doug E. Fresh and other famous hip hop artists. Prem will open a bottle of Suresh Patel’s and it is strong to say the least. This will cause him to explore his father’s Rhyme book. He will get to the sentence that his father came up with and it says, “The World’s Best Never Rest”.
Prem Patel will see his father Suresh Patel appear and this will cause Prem to yell because he is shocked to see him. Prem’s mother will come in and ask him what happened. Prem will tell her that the solution snuck up on me. She tells Prem that she loves it when that happens. Prem will wonder what is happening to him. He will think that he is sick and claims his mother’s cooking poisoned him. As his father tells him, that woman cannot cook. Prem says that he is too old for an imaginary friend. His dad tells him that he is too young for a mid-life crisis, but here we are. The problem needs a new variable as his dad points out. Prem tells his dad, I cannot rap. Prem has a dream that he is rapping with his dad, and this will cause him to start exploring who he is.
Prem will explore this as he will sign up for the Fall Talent show. He will get help from his new friends Mercedes and Gabe. He will also help them to figure out how to remember Math equations. Mercedes and Gabe ask him what he is into? Prem will tell them he is into rap. They say no way. He gives them a tape that has a lot of first rap artists. The tape has Bismarck Keys, Doug E. Fresh, Slick Rick, and Naughty by Nature. Prem asks them do they listen a lot to the song that Naughty by Nature performed. They both tell Prem that these joints are the foundations to Hip Hop. These guys dreamed big and lived large and turned a turntable and a Mike into the number one music in the world.
Prem wants his mother to take him to the Leopard Lounge because he wants to check out Freestyle Tuesdays that his mother talked about with him. She shoots him down. She wants him to focus on Math. Prem later asks his father to help him with the Fall Talent Show. He wants to learn the basics of hip hop. His father tells him the basics are understanding how to put the sentences together. The basics involve putting the rhymes together like multiplication tables. You must hop from one sentence to the next. This is also poetry. Why is that? It is. Poetry uses rhymes and if you understand poetry, you will be able to rap. His father tells him you want to get to Fuel. Prem figures out he must solve for X and Y. Once he understands this, he can put the sentences together for him to rap.
Prem will have struggles down the road. He will question who he is in the process. His dad is talented, and Prem will learn from his father that life is messy and there is no right answer. His father Suresh will tell him that life is not an equation and that you do not need me to teach you who you are. That is something that Prem must figure out on his own.
As not to be revealed, nothing more will be revealed here. It does bring the viewer to the climax of the movie and answer the question that everyone wants to know of “Who is Prem Patel?”
I will give you, my rating. I give World’s Best, a 10 out of 10. It was fun but does an excellent job of helping the audience to understand who Prem Patel is. Prem Patel will learn things about who he is and learn that it is okay to have more than one skill. Prem will go through the typical struggle that each person faces. It is tough at any age not to know who you are. It happens like it did for Peter Parker in Spider-Man 2. As the doctor told Peter, there is nothing worse than uncertainty. It can paralyze you and that uncertainty and fear will keep you from living. As Prem’s father Suresh Patel tells him, fear keeps you from living. Hip Hop is like life, you cannot go halfway. You must go all the way. As Suresh tells his son Prem that you must have confidence if you want to be the best. You must be your own hype man. This will cause Prem to realize this. He makes the mistake of picking on Claire after getting his father’s book back from those that stole it from him. As his father tells him, “Phony rappers put others down to build themselves up. Real EMCs like us, we own we are that is what makes us untouchable”. This is an important lesson to learn for life. There is a difference between running your mouth and having something to say. If you just talk and you just want to hear yourself talk, who is going to take you seriously? But if you only talk when you have something to say, people will listen to you. It is important to keep it real. What happened to Prem? Does he reconcile with Jerome? Does he help his friends finish in the top 3 of the Mathlympics? Does Prem figure out who it is? Is Prem a math guy or a rapper or both? Please leave your answers in the comment section below. Thank you.
