One Line Review: A heartwarming comedy-drama where Kriti scores high with her performance.
Mimi is a beautiful movie regarding the concept of surrogacy told in a humorous way.
“MIMI REVIEW : A MOVING TAKE ON MOTHERHOOD AND A SENSE OF BELONGING”~ Times Of India
Our review for Mimi is 08/10.
Mimi is a girl who aspires to become an actress and dances on shows to make money for the same. Bhanu Pratap is a driver who comes across a foreign couple who is looking for an Indian surrogate mother. Bhanuprathap makes the couple meet Mimi and convinces Mimi to be a surrogate mother in return for money. Things go bizarre after a while and Mimi should handle all the complications regarding her pregnancy along with Bhanupratap being a good friend by her side.
Kriti Sanon alone carries the movie forward till the end with her stellar performance being Mimi. With actors like Pankaj Tripathi who easily pulls off any kind of role given and more, she surpassed all the cast to take the whole thing on her shoulders. Without a doubt, Mimi is Kriti’s career-best so far!
It was a delight to watch Pankaj play Bhanupratap and his comic timing was excellent.
The movie deals with a less discussed topic in India that is Surrogacy and the maker had successfully made the movie in such a way that you won’t feel bored at all. But again, after all these things, I happened to notice one major flaw in the movie. It is that whatever is shown in Mimi is everything that is practically impossible. If I got into the details, it may spoil the plot. I wish the makers actually dug a bit about surrogacy before making a movie regarding the same.
Right after the release of the trailer, what brought the movie a lot of attention was this one song – ‘Paramsundari’. Shreya Ghoshal’s magical voice, A. R. Rahman’s musical touch, and Kriti’s groovy moves made this a favorite track for many people. Unlike cliche Bollywood item songs, Paramsundari stood out for its melodious touch with a unique style.
The lyrics go like this:
“Le toh gayi kaleja
Sang mein hume bhi le ja
Ye toh chori pe hai seena zori
Kabhi lage monalisa
Kabhi kabhi lage lolita
Aur kabhi jaise kadambri haye meri
Param param param param
Param sundari haye meri
Param param param param
Param sundari sar se pair talak
Betahasha husn se bhari haye meri
Param param param param param sundari”
A very good entertainer with a beautiful message attached. Go for it.
