Netflix is ready with its new Hindi film Mimi. The film has Kriti Sanon and Pankaj Tripathi as the lead pair and is based on surrogacy. Read our review to know if the film has any juice in it or not.
Mimi (Kriti Sanon) is from a small town and her only dream is to become a big heroine in Bollywood. But destiny has other plans as she is offered 20 lakhs to become a surrogate mother by a US couple. Mimi grabs the offer not knowing what she has in store for in the future. When Mimi is about to deliver, the couple drops the deal and leaves Mimi with all sorts of problems. How she manager her life as a single mother is the story.
Kriti Sanon is the heart and soul of the film. She plays the sheet anchor’s role in a superb manner. Kriti is lovely and bubbly in the first half and shows what she is capable of acting-wise in the second half with her stunning emotional act. Pankaj Tripathi is very good as Bhanu the driver and brings a comedy quotient to the film. Supriya Pathak and the actress who played Shama were also good. But it is Kriti and Pankaj Tripathi who steal the show.
Mimi is based on the concept of surrogacy. So many films have been made in Hindi in this concept but Mimi has fun engraved in it so well. The manner in which it is unleashed with a lot of wits makes things tick in a big way.
The director Laxman Utekar has done good homework and makes his emotions work in the best possible manner. There is no dull moment in the film as the fun and emotions go hand in hand making things so easy for the audience.
The last half an hour is the life of the film as it has moving emotions. Kriti and her intense act will move you for sure. The clean drama will also make this film click with the family audience. Amidst all this bold content on OTT, here is a film called Mimi that really works and is a really satisfying watch for the audience.
Bottom Line – Emotionally charged film’
