Unlike all the movies we have seen in Bollywood around surrogacy so far, Mimi doesn’t take things too seriously. Rather, it prefers to treat the subject with great innocence and simplicity, with a dollop of humour, courtesy actor Pankaj Tripathi. Mimi revolves around a small town girl from Rajasthan, played by Kriti Sanon, who is offered Rs 20 lakh to work as a surrogate for an American couple. The middleman is Tripathi, who manages to convince both the sides in his impeccable style.
The only obstacle is how Mimi will hide her pregnant belly from her parents and society at large. The film touches on the challenges of surrogacy and how the society views it.
However, things take a turn when the couple backs out of the deal and refuses to accept the child. Mimi’s family thinks that a pregnant unmarried daughter means it is an illegitimate child. And it all comes with a pinch of religious rivalry. Special mention to Tripathi, who breaks the image of Kriti Sanon’s father with his previous film Bareilly Ki Barfi, and plays a small town agent, who also plays Mimi’s companion in the film.
Talking about Mimi, Kriti Sanon told PTI, “It is not preachy or serious. It is not like you are going to watch a film on surrogacy and it will be a documentary film. It is a very entertaining film, full of humour, and full of ups and downs. The woman I am playing has a beautiful graph, Mimi, where she wants to be an actress. “
Mimi reunites Kriti Sanon, Pankaj Tripathi, director Laxman Utekar and producer Dinesh Vijan after their hit romantic-comedy Luka Chuppi. It is also the latest collaboration between Dinesh Vijan and Kriti Sanon after films like Raabta, Luka Chuppi and Arjun Patiala. Fans also remember their wonderful friendship with Pankaj Tripathi as father-daughter in Bareilly Ki Barfi.
