The Plot of Mimi Movie
John and Summer are an American couple who can’t conceive a child due to some reason. They have come all the way to Rajasthan searching for a surrogate mother. Here they come across Mimi, a local dancer who has big aspirations to become a Bollywood star but doesn’t have any financial means.
Mimi accepts to become the surrogate in exchange for Rs 20 Lakhs. In order to hide her pregnancy from the parents, she lied to her parents about a shooting in Mumbai and started living with a friend.
During a medical checkup, John and Summer find out that the child has Down’s syndrome, devastated they leave for America, and tell Mimi they don’t want the child anymore.
She returns to her parents and tells them that it is Bhanu’s child. This causes fun and chaos as Bhanu is already married. But eventually, Mimi tells her parents about surrogacy. She gives birth to a healthy boy Raj, and they get to know that it was a false positive.
Like any other mother in this world, she gets deeply attached to Raj and starts to weave the Bollywood aspirations for Raj. Isn't that sweet?
About four years later, John and Summer return, and they ask for Raj. Mimi tells them that Raj is hers now. But they threaten her with legal actions as she has signed a contract of surrogacy.
If she is paid for the task, she has no right over the child. Mimi doesn't want to fight the court cases and agrees to the couple’s condition.
On the day of leaving India, John and Summer come with a little girl, Tara, who they explain is their daughter. They have adopted her after being mesmerized by the charm and the connection that they have built with her.
And they also ask Mimi to take care of Raj. Because parenthood is not only about blood but affection and care.
I know this is a heart-melting movie that you would see today.

The ratings and reviews are just phenomenal, with IMDb 8.2 stars, 19406 votes. Even on google reviews, the film has secured 4.7/5 stars with over 7000 reviews. So, there is no doubt that the Indian Audience is pretty much ready for these kinds of movies instead of the cheap same romantic story with different characters kind of movies.
So, yes, the movie has an excellent and well-timed plot. And with so many pointless movies in the market right now. This not only excels in the story part but also got success in providing a moral message to the viewers.
Filmmakers have to understand that people have become more alert nowadays. And their cheap movies won’t work. And Mimi is an excellent kind of example to all the filmmakers out there.
Every parent or to be a parent should watch this movie, this will help them realize about their responsibilities. Actually, if possible, everyone should watch this. They should also rethink their old stigmas pertaining to the society of blood-related members, and parenthood is all about blood. This provides a good message to everyone watching this movie. And takes us a step closer to the Utopian world we have envisioned.
After so long, I have watched a wonderful movie with a message that heart warms everybody. I am sure you will learn a lot from this movie. so you not only have a reason (Kriti Sanon) to watch the movie but there are other reasons as well.
