Mili Movie Review

First thing First if you have already watched Helen the Malayalam version then there is no need to watch the movie as this is the bit by bit the same. As the movie has nothing extraordinary to deliver but a simple storyline executed meticulously. Janhvi Kapoor as Mili seems to be the perfect fit for the character. Undoubtedly this can be one of the best performances of Janhvi Kapoor in all her movies. Manoj Pahwa, and Sunny Kaushalas Mili’s father and boyfriend are also justifying their characters, although their characters have nothing much to showcase.

From the very beginning, the character build-up of Mili seems interesting and raises curiosity about what coming next. Mili has the plan to visit Canada for further studies and a job for which she is fighting hard and working in a cafe. Mili is surrounded by many people, and everyone treats her accordingly, few love them, a roadside Romeo who teases her, her colleague like a best friend, and a boyfriend who belongs to another caste. The movie is a complete family-packed entertainer, and also to learn a few family moral values. The showcase of love between Mili and her father is still a dream for many parents and children.

After watching the movie I do have a question, is the remake required for the Movie? Over the past few months, it is noticed audience does not prefer the remakes no matter who you select as a cast. Whether it is OTT or in theatres remakes have failed everywhere this year. Helen the Malayalam version can be dubbed in Hindi and presented to the Hindi audience without investing a lot of capital and time. Movies like Sita Ramam, and Pushpa have done this in past and audiences loved that.
