    Movie Review Rating - 3.5 / 5

    The film goes on to show the real life story of this sports star,
    which not many are aware of.

    The film which is a biopic on one of India’s most
    illustrious sports personalities, Mary Kom, who,
    despite all her hardships,
    put our country on the international map with her achievements.

    The film serves as an eye opener not just on the fact that
    India can produce international ‘gold medal winning’ boxers,
    but also that Manipur is very much a part of India!


    Mary Kom's father is against her taking up boxing because
    she may spoil her face but she goes against his wishes and
    and takes up boxing.

    At one point he tells her to choose between him and
    boxing and Mary Kom chooses boxing. She learns quickly
    under the guidance of her coach M Narjit Singh (Sunil Thapa).
    Soon she goes from winning one title to making India and
    her family proud.

    Her coach abandons her when she decides to marry her
    friend who has been a great support. He is angry as he knows
    that after marriage she will focus on her family life and
    boxing will take a back seat and that's exactly what happens.

    Mary Kom is blessed with two kids and gradually she is
    becoming a forgotten hero. It hits her when she is traveling
    by bus and the child sitting opposite her talks about Mary Kom
    but does not recognize her.

    Resigned to live the life of a commoner finding it difficult to survive
    with two kids, Mary applies for a job, but the job she gets is
    that of a ‘hawaldaar’, something that slaps her from within.

    Unable to continue with a mundane existence, Mary vows to make a
    comeback in the ring, this time round, minus the support of her
    coach, a decision which proves wrong in the long run.

    After serious losses in the ring, the absence of her coach and
    the unbending politics of the boxing federation, Mary faces
    an uphill task.

    Will she manage to convince her coach to train her again and
    will she manage to overcome the boxing federation forms the
    rest of the film.

    Positive Points

    The best part about the film is the casting. Priyanka Chopra
    has worked hard to get into the skin of the character and it
    In fact it's tough to imagine any other Bollywood actress to
    pull it off the way she has.
    Even her coach played by Sunil Thapa and her husband in the
    film, actor Darshan Kumar put in sincere efforts from their

    Negative points

    A film on sports has to have the right music but
    Shashi - Shivamm's music doesn't do the trick.
    It's not bad but could have been much better.


    Mary Kom's story is a great one and we all know that.
    The film falls short in doing justice to Magnificent Mary
