Mimi Movie Review: Clever and Humorous

Three days before the film is yet to stream on Netflix, Bollywood movie Mimi got leaked over the internet. With nothing much to do, the makers released the film on Netflix. The trailer caught everyone’s attention as Mimi discusses a new and funnier side of surrogacy. The film is directed by Laxman Utekar and the film features Kriti Sanon, Pankaj Tripathi, Sai Tamhankar, Supriya Pathak, Manoj Pahwa, Akash Solanki, Evelyn Edwards, Aidan Whytock in the lead roles. Maddock Films and Jio Studios jointly produced this interesting attempt. Here is the film’s review:


Mimi is the story of a young girl Mimi Singh Rathore (Kriti Sanon) who resides in a Rajasthani village. She dreams of turning a dancer and actress. To earn her living, Mimi does dance shows and it is during this time, a foreign couple Summer (Evelyn Edwards) and John (Aidan Whytock) spots her. The foreign couple spends a year in India and is on a hunt for a surrogate mother as Summer cannot conceive. A cab driver Bhanu Pratap (Pankaj Tripathi) mediates the issue and convinces Mimi. They promise her Rs 20 lakhs and she gets convinced but on one condition.

She decides to hide her pregnancy from her parents. When all is well, the foreign couple takes a U-Turn (reason not revealed here) and wants Mimi to get aborted. The rest of the film is all about the emotional journey, the struggles and challenges she faces before she delivers a child. Watch Mimi to know about the rest.


Mimi is a film that is sensible, entertaining, emotional and hard-hitting. When you get all the ingredients in the right amounts, the film would be a roller coaster ride for the audience for sure. The first 20 minutes is taken to set the premises and introduce the characters. The rest of the film is flawless and unstoppable. Mimi is probably the best Hindi film that headed for a direct digital release in the recent times. Sensible entertainment with humor always impresses the audience big time and Mimi is one such attempt. Kriti Sanon delivers her best performance till date and this film would be a game-changer for the actress. Dealing with a film based on surrogacy, the director handles the film with utmost care and induced enough dose of entertainment throughout. The emotional episodes take the film to the next level.

The other best thing that happened for Mimi is the casting. From Kriti Sanon to Pankaj Tripathi and others, everyone was fit well in their roles and they did them with perfection. The first half of the film is light-hearted and the second half is quite emotional. The crisp runtime and the technical aspects are the other assets for Mimi. AR Rahman’s magical score works well especially for the emotional part of Mimi. Bollywood made a bunch of films on surrogacy and this one is the best attempt. Pankaj Tripathi shines as always and he takes the film to the next level. Manoj Pahwa and Supriya Pathak as surprised parents of Mimi have done an outstanding job. The production values are good and the film’s director Laxman Utekar does a splendid job.


Mimi is the best work of Kriti Sanon till date and the film strikes hard to impress everyone. A perfect blend of sensible humor and heart-touching emotions. Must watch.

Kriti Sanon: Comedy is serious business


Actress Kriti Sanon says doing comedy is not a laughing matter, but a serious business.

Kriti has featured in comedies such as “Bareilly Ki Barfi”, “Arjun Patiala” and the recent Diwali release, “Housefull 4”, which also features Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Riteish Deshmukh, Kriti Kharbanda, Pooja Hegde and Rana Daggubati in important roles.

“Comedy is, indeed, serious business but thanks to the amazing mentors I found in Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh and Bobby Deol; they made it seamless for me to pull off certain scenes. People can now enjoy the movie on the streaming platform and hopefully it’ll add a bit to their holiday cheer,” Kriti said.

Sharing his “Husefull 4” experience, Bobby said: “Being part of projects that are larger than life is fun. The ‘Housefull’ franchise is a testament to that. It was fun reconnecting with Akshay and Riteish on-screen after many years and we had a lot of fun while shooting, which the viewers will see.”

Comedy is not easy: Kriti Sanon


Actress Kriti Sanon says working on the Bollywood comic caper “Arjun Patiala” was an exciting journey but she doesn’t find comedy an easy genre.

Maddock films is bringing actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh back in uniform, this time with Kriti and actor Varun Sharma, for a laugh riot.

“‘Arjun Patiala’ was such an exciting journey. Comedy is not an easy genre, and we have added a twist to it. Diljit and Varun have a great comic timing and it was a constant laugh riot on the set,” Kriti said in a statement.

Dinesh Vijan, who is producing the film with Bhushan Kumar, said: “Diljit will be seen in the uniform but very different from his avatar in his first Hindi film outing, ‘Udta Punjab’.

“This ‘police wallah’ is a laugh a minute character with swag.”

Diljit said: “‘Arjun Patiala’ is very quirky. It’s a film that has action, romance and comedy but with a spin on it. It was a blast shooting it and I hope audiences love it as much.”

Varun will be seen as a police official with a sarcastic tongue and an arrogant stride, who goes by the name of Onida Singh.

“I’m very excited to see the audience’s reactions as it’s a very special. They’ve given me so much love and appreciation, I want to make sure they have a great time at the theatre,” he said.

The trio has a baddie to contend with as Zeeshan Ayyub steps out of his ‘good friend’ avatar to roam the campus, his hair tied up in a patka, piling up the corpses without batting an eyelid. His character is called School, pronounced in the Punjabi way as Sakool.

“The Rohit Jugraj-directed laugh riot offers plenty of action and dollops of bubble-gum romance. We believe in doing something different every time, and since we have never attempted an out-and-out comedy before, we decided to experiment with one which is more situational than slapstick.

“If this film works, we would be happy to spin a franchise with (characters) Arjun, Onida and Ritu returning as the principal players. We already have an idea for a part 2 and like ‘Golmaal’ and ‘Fukrey’, Arjun will be back with a Patiala peg every couple of years,” Vijan said.

The film is scheduled to hit the theatres on September 14.

I have not faced the casting couch: 1-Nenokkadine Heroine Kriti Sanon


Bollywood actress Kriti Sanon says that though she doesn’t have a ‘Godfather’ in the film industry, she never faced casting couch.

The “Dilwale” actress was present here on Saturday during the India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit. She shared her experience of being an outsider in Bollywood and spoke about the casting couch and body shaming at a length.

“I am an engineer, so it was a huge shift for me. I was a little lost…It seemed like a dream which was too big. I think that such things (casting couch) do exist, but not only in Bollywood. But in other places too. But fortunately, I have not faced the casting couch. I was signed by an agency and thankfully nothing of this sort happened to me.”

Reminiscing about her first film, Kriti said: “It was my first Bollywood film so I was really excited. Back then, it was taking baby steps. I was fascinated by everything on the sets and I started to respect this field and everything related to it. ‘Whistle Baja’ was my first Bollywood song, and I have always been a dancer at heart, so it was a high for me.”

Debuting opposite Tiger Shroff with the film “Heropanti”, the actress dealt with criticism quite gracefully whether it is on body shamming or acting.

She said: “Don’t be scared of failure. Failures make you stronger. Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot make it. When you read reviews, whether the girl has a substantial role or not, people talk about hero and villain, and not write much about the heroine. So that is changing. People are believing in stories where a female is the main protagonist. And I hope it starts to get better from here.”

As her last release “Bareilly Ki Barfi” is still in theatres, talking about playing a fan of Madhuri Dixit, she said: “Bitti’s character was very different from anything that I had done and it was challenging for me. People had seen me in glamorous roles, and it is easy to get typecast in Bollywood. It was great learning the dialect.”

Being a die-heart fan of Madhuri and Shah Rukh Khan, she said: “I used to dance to ‘Ankhiyaan Milau’. Talking about actors, Shah Rukh sir is my favourite. I have been his fan since childhood. I am a huge ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ fan.”
