Mary Kom is a film that tells us how the daughter of a rice farmer in Manipur became a five time world champion. It’s a story of determination, passion and about a girl who dare to dream.
As far as the cast goes, well Priyanka Chopra had an author backed roll and she has done justice to the same but film belongs to the three men in Mary Kom’s life and that’s Darshan Kumar as Mary Kom’s husband Onler, Robin Das as her father and last but not the least Sunil Thapa as her coach are very good.
Omung Kumar has done a decent job as the director and has tried hard to create a believable world that looks convincing.
Well the area where Mary Kom falls flat is its screenplay that have been pushed towards making the film commercial. Biopics by design are about the highlights of a person’s life and, here, the narrative succumbs to ticking off milestones.
Omung Kumar tries to give it variety by incorporating a flashback structure, but that doesn’t add much. What is shocking is the fact that that film jumps from one point to another and that is a huge put off. Omang Kumar should have stayed away from writing the film.
Mary Kom has a very dull first half but the second half more than makes up for it. There are too many issues to be tackled and the writing team does not know what to highlight and when.
In the climax, Omung Kumar opts for high strung melodrama that that’s a huge put off. Despite its flaws, though, Mary Kom is a worthy attempt.
Go and watch Mary Kom for Darshan Kumar as Mary Kom’s husband because had he not been there, there would not have been a Mary Kom.
