Mimi (Movie Review)

By Suhail Umrani (Raj)

Mimi is a social subject film that is both inspiring and engaging. Pankaj Tripathi and Kriti Sanon feature in the lead roles.

It is not ensured that a remake will succeed in Bollywood. There have been great remakes of mediocre films, as well as ones that collapsed short of the original's brilliance. Laxman Utekar's Mimi is challenging to classify. Besides, we have arguments. Mimi is a remake of the 2011 Marathi film Mala Aai Vhhaychy, depicted by Samruddhi Porey. Mimi, a surrogacy film, appears a decade too delayed to address a taboo topic in modern society. It is invariably favored to enter late. The filmmakers conveyed Bollywood to the next level, presenting it far too theatrical for our appreciation.

Mimi (Kriti Sanon) is a young Rajasthani girl with ambitions to act in Bollywood. The funds expected to migrate to Mumbai and endeavor her success in the film industry are not unusual. Her driver, Pankaj Tripathi's (Bhanu Pratap Pandey), leads to a foreign couple wanting a surrogate mother for Rs 20 lakh. Mimi consents to the money, but it has surprising consequences. Mimi grasps the same anecdote and plot as Mala Aai Vhhaychy. Nevertheless, the lead has been revised to present the story as more enhanced family-friendly. While the protagonist of Mimi resembles be intelligent and self-assured, the novel imitates her as further conventional and quarantined from society.

To contest the delicate Indian public, Laxman Utekar, who also co-wrote the film, expands the emotions to the tip of obnoxiousness. Within, there is an excess of giggling, primarily when Pankaj Tripathi acquires to perform his contest. The screenplay examines our indulgence every ten minutes, advancing from good to bad. Utekar has developed his directing crafts since his early Hindi film, Luka Chuppi.

Mimi, performed by Kriti Sanon, endeavors to start into the modern world of women-centric cinema. In distinctive approaches, she ensues, presenting her most excellent accomplishment to date. Is that enough? We consult numerous potentialities for fullness in her because she is ignorant of her overreactions. Pankaj Tripathi is exquisite as Bhanu, and he is the hook that holds the vessel drifting in the film. The actor reflects in all scenes, from the comedic to the emotionally loaded. Shama, performed by Sai Tamhankar, Mimi's most loyal companion, is on the boards. She is genuine, selfless, and dedicated to her mate on all occasions. Manoj Pahwa and Supriya Pathak both perform Mimi's parents admirably. Similarly meritorious of notice is the petite actor who represents Aatif, Mimi's father's pupil. His ironic timing is unmatched.

AR Rahman composed Mimi's music and soundtrack. All lyrics are by Amitabh Bhattacharya. While the songs work as a backdrop for the narrative, they have no enduring influence.

Mimi, you've created an outstanding role of emitting light on a societal taboo such as surrogacy. You're endeavoring to secure it further inspiring and touching, and in accomplishing so, you're rolling the producers of a wonderful break. Mimi is worth a shot, and I give four stars out of five to the movie for acting and story.
