Shabana Azmi’s latest project Mee Raqsam released online on Zee5 OTT platform on August 21. The film talks about a Muslim girl Maryam aka Aditi Subedi and Danish Hussain as her father. The girl loves to dance Bharatnatyam but her society didn’t accept it.
Veteran Shabana Azmi has given tribute to his late father Kaifi Azmi with this new film. The film has been entirely shot in a village where Kaifi Azmi use to reside in Uttar Pradesh. The film has been directed by Baba Azmi and it also stars Naseeruddin Shah in an extended cameo role. The film is around 135 minutes long and it gives a strong message that the soul of art is in its freedom.
Mee Raqsam means I Dance in English. The film not only gives the message of Unity In Diversity but also open your eyes in a big way.
As per the early reviews, Mee Raqsam gets great response from critics. The film has been rated around 3.5 stars to 4 stars from critics. The film is garnering rave reviews and it is a hit in terms of content but still it may not be watched by major population who watches online content.
The budget of Mee Raqsam could be around 5 to 7 crores and it is easily recoverable through online release. But this film couldn’t able to get big audience if it ever got released in theaters. This film is a profitable affair in online but a flop in theaters.
Altogether, Mee Raqsam is a must watch film to all the movie lovers. The film will easily enter into your heart and that’s the beauty of this film.
Bollywood Crazies rating would be 90% (Mindblowing) out of 100%.
