First Rank Raju is based on the negative impact on children if parents prepare them like Rank Machines. A Person who focusses only on ranks won't know anything other than subjects and willn't be able to reciprocate to the human emotions. While the First Half of the trailer presents the protagonist as a rank machine, Second Half is about the transformation he underwent upon realising ranks aren't everything.
