Shabaash Mithu movie review: Taapsee Pannu is much better than this Srijit Mukerji film


Women in sport. Sporty women. It doesn’t matter how progressive the nation is, but young women who choose to dedicate their lives to sporting excellence have their struggle cut out, whether it is family or the world outside, inimical to female drive and ambition. Mithali Durai Raj, the captain of the Indian women’s cricket team, not only carved out a shining, inspirational career for herself, but was responsible for raising the bar for Indian women’s cricket.

First ’83’, then ‘Jersey’ and now ‘Shabash Mithu’, the audience of Hindi films are not liking the films made on cricket at all. One of the reasons for this is being considered that the cricket matches started happening in the country, there is a debate in the film trade on whether cricket is really the favorite sport of the audience now or is it just online betting. It has become a means. The opening figures of the first day of the film ‘Shabaash Mithu’ are a testimony to the fact that the audience’s preferences are constantly changing and the company releasing the film is a giant like Viacom18, even if the marketing and promotion of the film is not done properly. If yes, then people do not reach to see the film.

story of rebellion

The film ‘Shabaash Mithu’ is the story of a daughter born in a South Indian traditional family rebelling against stereotypes. The film was promoted as a biopic of Mithali Raj. Because of this film, Mithali Raj, whose name people have heard for the first time, how and why they will come to see this film, the film making company has hardly considered it. The film could also have been an incidental account of cricket in the life of a Bharatnatyam student and all the more so from the life of Mithali Raj, who could have been placed at the center of the promotion of the film. However, Viacom18’s COO, Taapsee Pannu and Mithali Raj kept the cameras on themselves throughout the India tour.

Film made at a cost of 30 crores

The first day collection of the film ‘Shabash Mithu’, made in about Rs 30 crore, which seems to be a victim of bad marketing, does not seem to reach even Rs 1 crore. According to the initial figures received on Friday night, the film has earned only Rs 80 lakh at the box office across the country. Along with this, the collection of the film ‘Hit the First Case’ released has been slightly better and around Rs 1.40 crore. The box office future of both these films has started looking hazy from now on due to the very weak opening that both the films got.

Taapsee has become an OTT heroine

Taapsee Pannu is the heroine of the film ‘Shabash Mithu’ and there is no other strong artist in it except Vijay Raj. And, with Taapsee Pannu’s last five films releasing on OTT continuously, her fans have also become accustomed to watching her sitting at home. Cricket enthusiasts did not take the theater route and fans of Taapsee Pannu are waiting for the film to hit OTT. This is the story of the box office future of the film ‘Shabash Mithu’. Taapsee’s last theatrical release was ‘Thappad’ which got an opening of Rs 2.89 crore on the first day.

Opening of last five films

The opening of the last five films released in the theaters of Taapsee Pannu were as follows:
