Taapsee Pannu with Mithali Raj Biopic: Shabaash Mithu

The lesson we take from Taapsee Pannu’s performance in Mithali Raj’s biopic Shabaash Mithu is that you don’t necessarily have to win to be called a winner. Director Srijit Mukherji presents the suffering of the Indian women’s cricket team in the opening scenes, which not only struggle to win a match, but also to meet basic needs like food, shelter, kits cricket and much more. The director also adds a refreshing approach to the story by focusing on Mithali Raj’s early years and delving into how she found her hidden passion for gaming. It’s a story that not only captures the rise of a legend named Mithali Raj, but also the rise of the Indian women’s cricket team to world level.

Anyone can follow Mithali Raj’s path to success for the nation by taking a holistic view of their life. What starts as a personal battle, ends up being a fight for the team, to be noticed in a country like India where they revere male cricketers. The film’s main conflict begins during the drama section, and Srijit managed to make his point without getting into too much of the male vs. female stigma.

During the two hour and thirty-six minute run, Shabaash Mithu’s storyline tends to get repetitive, especially in the first half. Some scenes also give nostalgia for sports dramas like Chak De India, Dangal, Saina, and even Gunjan Saxena. But rather than a problem with cinema, it has to do with an overdose of the biographical genre. The rest of the sets are doing well.

All in all, the film is worth watching to witness the journey of one woman, who is responsible for the great rise of women’s cricket in India over the past two decades.
