Mimi Streaming on Netflix Featuring Kriti Sanon, Pankaj Tripathi is a Never Heard before Love Story between a Mother & her unborn child, A challenge that would bring out the Best & Worst in Her. – MIMI REVIEW – Netflix – Kriti Sanon – Pankaj Tripathi
The surrogacy dramedy follows a foolhardy Mimi (Kriti Sanon) — Bollywood aspirant and Ranveer Singh fangirl from Rajasthan — who signs up to be a surrogate for an American couple, without thinking about the social, emotional, and legal implications of her decision.
The 25-year-old girl hopes to fulfill her ambition of becoming an actress in Mumbai, by using the enormous money (Rs 20 Lakhs), promised to her for bearing the child. Things progress as per the ambitious plan of our rebellious protagonist, albeit to a certain point. Life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, after all. A potential health hazard to the unborn child leaves everyone shaken up. Dreams are shattered until they are not.
Based on the acclaimed Marathi film ‘Mala Aai Vhhaychy!’ by Samruoddhi Porey, Mimi is skillfully adapted by Laxman Utekar. He along with screenwriter Rohan Shankar ensures the Hindi film has its own character and identity while retaining the essence of the original.
Mimi offers a light-hearted, yet moving takes on surrogacy and its repercussions. Having delivered a range of interesting characters before, with Mimi, Kriti Sanon marks her arrival as a solid actor who can carry a film on her own. Her eyes speak anger and anguish with a certain calm — a mark of a mature performer. Another actor who co-shoulders the film along with Kriti is the brilliant Pankaj Tripathi. He is as much the hero of the film as Kriti.
A complete family entertainer after long — Mimi picks a relevant topic and turns it into an engaging, empowering, and compassionate tale on humanity and motherhood.
