CAST & CREW
An inspirational film is sure to sweep your feet off the ground. It is a well-made biography of infamous boxer Mary Kom who fights all odds to achieve her ultimate happiness.
Plot: The movie starts when Priyanka and Darshan are expecting their child. Both of them fight numerous odds to accomplish their goals. Going into the flashback, it is shown how Priyanka deals with her father’s rejection towards her passion, how she has to justify herself each time because she is a female and how she conjoins Manipur to India. Boxing gets a new dimension in her life when she joins Sunil Thapa’s academy. She wins many accolades after that. The twist then comes when she decides to marry Darshan. This is unacceptable to her coach as he feels it would be a distraction to her career. After few years when she decides to come back to the ring, her defeats bring her down. She realises that she cannot do any mundane job. Will her coach accept her back and train her again? Watch out to now.
Analysis: One would surely give extra points for the screenplay and story. Karan Singh Rathore and RamendraVashishth have done a fabulous job regarding the dialogue and dialect. The film’s cinematography is at par with the brilliance of the movie. The songs aren’t worth appreciating, but the background hides the flaws.
Star Performance: Mary Kom as a film has a solid team. Priyanka Chopra delivers a splendid performance and does full justice to the role. The hero, Darshan Kumar is also the life of the film. The supportive role played by him is amazing. Sunil Thapa deserves a round of applause for the sincerity shown by him.
What is there? 1. Not the usual kind of a story 2. The biography theme is well captured. 3. Locations are very eye pleasing. 4. Manipulative subplots.
What is not there? 1. Impactful songs. 2. Sole concentration on the main plot of boxing as a sport.
