We have seen movies coming from bollywood that inspire us, relate to out day to day life. making movies based achievements of athletes and sports personalities has become an upcoming trend in the Bollywood. Bollywood once in a while, creates films that narrate real life stories which touch our hearts and souls. MARY KOM is one of the upcoming flick that will make you feel like a proud Indian.
Omung Kumar’s MARY KOM is based on India’s well-known sports personalities, Mary Kom who, despite all her adversity, put our countryâ€™s flag in the internationally front with her triumph. The role of Mary Kom played by (Priyanka Chopra) is a performance of a lifetime.
Omung Kumar (the director of the film) does a great job of building up the climax with heart wrenching scenes.
In a crisp two hour, the film tells us how a daughter of a rice farmer in Manipur becomes a five time world champion boxer. Story is full of passions, punches and entertainment. What powers the film is remarkable performance of Priyanka Chopra as MARY KOM. Darshan Kumar as Maryâ€™s husband, Robin Das as her father and Sunil Thapa have played the role of supporting actor beautifully. The music composed by Shashi Suman and Shivam is just not the limelight of the movie but its shortcoming is surpassed by the film’s background score (Rohit Kulkarni) and crisp editing by the man of bollywood Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who also is the producer of the film. Brownie points go to Saiwyn Quadras for his screenplay and story, Karan Singh Rathore-Ramendra Vashishth for their dialogue and dialect. The film’s cinematography by Keiko Nakahara is totally at par with costume designer Isha Mantry.
On the whole, MARY KOM is definitely worth one time watch. Go for it. My rating 3/5 stars!
