Today, we are going to review latest Bollywood Hindi film Mimi. This is an interesting story related with complexity of surrogate pregnancy in India.
John and his wife Summer are an American couple who are looking for a healthy girl for surrogacy in India. Bhanu is their tourist driver in Rajasthan, who is ready to help them in this task for some money.
With A R Rahman’s dancing song Paramsundari, Mimi makes an entry. American couple suggests Bhanu that they are looking for someone like Mimi who is fit & healthy.
Mimi has a dream of becoming Bollywood actress and need money to go to Mumbai and for photoshoot. Bhanu gives her American couple’s Rs 20 lakhs offer of surrogacy. With some initial hesitation Mimi gets ready for it and also gets pregnant. Mimi tells family that she is going to Mumbai for 9 months film shoot and shifts in her friend Shama’s house. Things looks to be settled.
In one of the routine pregnancy checkup, Doctor informs that unbron kid is showing some syndrome related with disability. American couple gets disheartned and fearful with this news and refuses to take this baby further. Bhanu tries to convince them but couple just ask him to get rid of it and flew back to America. Mimi has to return to her family. To calm his family she misinforms that Bhanu is her husband and that brings lots of comical twist in this story. Slowly family gets settled with this with lots of laughable incidents.
Now you have to see, what happens to Mimi’s dream of Bollywood? Does Bhanu ever gets out of this situation? and Does American couple ever returns to India again?
