Mary Kom

Director: Omung Kumar
Actors: Priyanka Chopra, Darshan Kumar

Rating: 2 / 5

With so many successful and unsuccessful sports’ movies around, there’s really tough to create a new epic with complete originality. But this is always expected when a movie is based on a sports star. Movie kickoffs very well and portrays that it could be a one off sports wonder. However it feels sluggish towards the end of first half where no interesting punches are hit. The main focus of the film was the struggling story of Mary Kom that looked like a documentary in the second half. It gracefully shows the commitment of sports women but the entertainment part was missing throughout the second half. Games were not made dramatic which was in-fact better although the last sequence was extra dramatic.

Priyanka Chopra was dreadful in this performance and gave her hundred percent that was very impressive. It was the best acting what this direction could have produced. Other actors were above average and supported the story well.

I’ll give full marks to Omung Kumar to ride this movie at very good speed for the first half hour but then the accelerator failed and gradually movie came to a halt. He was unable to refuel the energy and excitement into this great story.
Overall a wonderful story told that looked like a documentary but the direction lacked entertainment and excitement.
