Jessica is a London-bred girl whose father is an Indian. She comes to Rajasthan to learn about her father’s childhood. Jessica visits a village in Rajasthan, where she comes in touch with Prerna, her brother Ankush and few other kids. Jessica and her friend teach the kids to skate, and seeing their interest, Jessica plans to establish the biggest skate park in India. But, she didn’t get support from the biggies. Finally, she meets a Maharani in Rajasthan. She is the only one who hears Jessica’s ambition to set a skate park. Impressed by her tendency, the Maharani decides to give land for the skate park. With the help of her friends, Jessica builds the park, and with the proper trainers, she teaches the children to skate. Prerna’s father is against this when Prerna gets injured and tells Jessica not to call his children hereafter. However, Prerna’s mother permits her to practice seeing her daughter’s interest. Prerna’s father fixes the marriage date for Prerna on the day of the grand display of the show to the Maharani and the villagers. What will Prerna do? Will she make her tutors and parents proud? The rest of the film shows that.
Amy Maghera, who played Jessica, lived in the role. Her emotional performance is fantastic. Waheeda Rehman did a good job as ever. Rachel Sanchita Gupta as Prerna excelled in her role, and her expressions are neat.
The film focuses on Skateboarding and the talent in the kids. The makers built a skate park in Rajasthan for the film, and this is India’s largest skate park and Rajasthan’s first skate park. Though the story is simple, it is beautifully spun with a non-boring screenplay. The stars are well-picked, and they didn’t act but lived in the characters. Although Waheeda’s role is small in the film, it gives the biggest turn in the story. The music and cinematography are impressive.
What’s Not There?
Skater Girl is a wonderful film that gives confidence to aspiring sportspeople. Not only for the performance, story, and direction, the film is a must-watch for seeding confidence!
