Mimi Movie Review: Dramedy At Its Finest As Kriti Sanon & Pankaj Tripathi Nail The Fusion Of Genres!
Dodging a few roadblocks, Mimi decides to do this for her dream of becoming a star in Bollywood.
This time, Utekar extremes the emotional end of the spectrum, finding a middle-ground excelling his flawed heavy-on-humour Lukka Chhupi.
In a little over 120 minutes, Mimi’s world initiates – a contrasting journey of a couple who are emotionally inclined towards having a kid but the protagonist is in just for the money – leading to an emotional growth of an aspiring actress who turns to be an unplanned mother.
She masters not only the quirky side of Mimi but also the more humane one, strengthening the connect with the viewers.
Pankaj Tripathi makes things looks so easy that it’s not even funny anymore. It’s getting out of the hand how this person can literally take a single expression and get laughter for the same.
For the talent Sai Tamhankar possesses, she brilliantly stands out in the sea of solid performances. Despite limited screen space, Sai delivers a purposeful act.
Supriya Pathak & Manoj Pahwa are the ones who are hit the most by Laxman Utekar steering towards the drama and not a comedy.
This, yet again, proves how a good background score and songs actually have the power to lift the feel of any film. Yes, Mimi wouldn’t have been as rousing as it’s without Rahman.
Laxman Utekar does a poignant job at mashing up clever humour with well-written drama.
All said and done, Mimi is the biggest surprise of the year. Mimi is a delightful blend of humour and emotions.
