Government figures of the population show that about 35 lakh babies are born prematurely in India every year. In such a situation, it is not surprising if the movie Mimi made on the subject of the surrogate mother came on the OTT platform before the due date. The film was to be released on Netflix on July 30, but news came in the day that Mimi was piracy and was released illegally on the internet. In such a situation, Netflix and Jio Cinema released the film on their respective platforms by the end of the evening to fight piracy. This is the Hindi adaptation of the Marathi film.
The advancement of science has brought relief to those couples who for some reason cannot become parents. First, the test tube baby was a surprise, then the surrogate mother became a facility. In the case of a surrogate mother, the embryo prepared in the laboratory is implanted in the womb of a healthy woman by taking the parent’s share and after nine months the child is born. In surrogacy, the part of the original couple grows in the womb of another woman. Surrogacy gradually became an issue of money and then of law along with science, but there are some emotional aspects to it, which could not come to the center even after many talks.
Mimi Movie Story:
Mimi brings out the human and emotional side.

Mimi needs money to fulfill her dream. Bhanu explains to her that if she becomes a surrogate mother, then she will get a huge amount, twenty lakh rupees! It is only a matter of nine months and on the question of stretch marks, the doctor asks Mimi on the contrary, has Shilpa Shetty’s figure deteriorated?

Mimi Movie Review:
The film does not delve into the legal complexities and technical debates of surrogacy. Nor does she show crying and tension-producing drama. Here everything proceeds in a feel-good manner. A little laughs-tickles and makes a little emotional. Mimi‘s story does not even fall in the circle of ‘Log Kya Kahenge’ and moves forward in a sluggish manner. There is a twist in the script here. Even if there is no romance, action, thriller, the film does not let you get bored. The characters are well crafted. Kriti Sanon has come true in the role of Mimi. She has lived her characters before becoming a mother and after becoming a mother. She looks genuine in a Rajasthani look.
Similarly, Pankaj Tripathi, who became a car driver who took tourists to Delhi-Rajasthan, has dominated here as usual. Even without romance drama, he remains in the center with his acting and smooth dialogue delivery. He makes a long role to persuade Mimi to go for surrogacy, saying that raising a child in the womb is the greatest thing in the world and that he should do it too if he just walks. But the question is, from where will the child be born? Pankaj does his work with complete honesty and hard work. The supporting cast has also played their role well in the film. Sai Tamhankar is good as Mimi‘s friend while Supriya Pathak and Manoj Pahwa are also fit as Mimi‘s parents.
Laxman Utekar and Rohan Shankar have written the script. There are no extra scenes anywhere in this film of more than two hours. The direction is good. Songs and music opportunities were there in the film and they could have been enhanced. The film moves at a smooth pace and ends at an emotional turn after ups and downs. Viewers see the story and decide for themselves right or wrong, good and bad. Undoubtedly the issue of surrogacy is easily explained here. This is the success of the director and his team.
