The movie begins in earnest by showing an incident that builds her interest in self-defence before showing her first interaction with a boxing gymnasium and coach and her entry into boxing. The movie then tells the story of her initial training, her struggle with a new sport, her immense dedication and will, her passion, whil...more


“Priyanka Chopra's sincere dedication and Mary Kom's inspirational life struggle deserved a better biopic. But, despite its flawed screenplay and predictability, the film should be watched because Mary's story needs to be told.”

If Mary Kom the film works, it is because of the story. As in Mary Kom's real life story;not because of the treatment. Like the endless takes on Mahabharat, it is very difficult to come up with a ho hum product because THE STORY IS SO GREAT. Yes, RGV's take of Sholay remains the exception to the rule. It takes a spcial kind of genius to ruin that storyline.

Mary Kom the film could have been a close second. But then this is Mary Kom, she has taken so many knocks and punches in life, perhaps her biopic took some inspiration and just plodded on. In a movie that begins with  paying homage to a multitude of endorsements, the late Lt Col Ashok Chopra, and the dear departed Naveen Bhansali; perhaps there was not much left to feel anything for Mary Kom's dilemna. I am going with this.

Though I must give the director some credit that he could make the brief snatches of Manipur look a bit credible (even though they conveniently gloss over the insurgency, Mary Kom's personal loss, hopes for the future, being Manipuri in India) for we all know in a Bhansali production geography and "setting" is the first casualty. 

Knowing Mary Kom's story  I am sure audiences will leave the movie taking  something away that is relevant to their lives, whether it is the slight of ethnic biases, red tape, our anger at a system that promotes the ubiquitous free loading babu, anger management--or the harried mom jisko thappad (ya piyar) se darr nahi lagta but yes thermometer se zaroor lagta hai.

Should you watch this film? I still think you should. Let not MC's detractors have all the last laughs.
