Mimi is the remake of Samruddhi Porey’s National Award-winning Marathi film Mala Aai Vhhaychy, which was released in 2011. Based on surrogacy, Mimi is definitely a decade late to talk about the taboo topic in our society. But, better late than never. It offers light-hearted yet moving to take on surrogacy and its counsel.

Like any other small-town girl with big dreams, Mimi (Kriti Sanon) also needs money to go to Mumbai and try her luck in the film industry. With the help of a driver, Bhanu Pratap Pandey (Pankaj Tripathi), who is driving the Americans arounds in the dusty lanes of Rajasthan, She comes in contact with a foreign couple who wants her to be a surrogate mother for Rs 20 lakh. Mimi approves for the sake of the money, but unusual outcomes follow. Though this practice is prohibited, she chooses so that she can fulfil her dreams.

The film is well-intentioned but the adoption section gets an idyllic strategy and is not rational to assure closure and that can be misleading. There is already a lot of misinformation on the adoption process in our country and a certain part of a story adds to the cesspool of incorrect facts. 

But the story lacks the touch of the original version, as many changes have been made in the lead character to make it more family-friendly. While in Mimi, the prominent character looks modern and bright, in the original, she is more conventional and is shown fighting society all along.

Kriti Sanon, in the role of Mimi, makes an effort to mark her name in the new world of women-centric cinema, which is currently dominated by the likes of Taapsee Pannu and Alia Bhatt. To some extent, she attains her attempt and gives an excellent performance, her best yet. The film seamlessly oscillates between drama and comedy, without losing its grip. It has some really funny scenes, and if melodrama is something you don’t mind, you should definitely give Mimi one watch. 

Also, it’s a big surprise of the year. You will fall in love with AR Rahman’s soothing opera, Pankaj Tripathi’s performance and story with an interesting blend of humour and emotions.
