My Thoughts
May Kom’s obsession with boxing… The fight that Mary picks… The determination with which she wins the confidence of her coach… The choice she makes when she is given with two options – Boxing or her own father… The bold interview that she gives to a magazine… The decision to get married… Her unhappiness on unplanned pregnancy and yet her graceful acceptance… Her comeback and the journey thereafter…

Such heartfelt instances makes Mary Kom an interesting watch. Her hard work, determination and the drive to win makes us pray that she emerge victoriously…

The screenplay is nicely woven; especially the first half. Dialogs are equally good. The second lags a little, but soon catches the pace. The climax is gripping and awakes the patriot within us.

One dialog refuse to leave my mind:
“Kabhi kisi ko ithna bhi math daraao, ki darr hi khatham ho jaaye!”

What makes Mary Kom a breezy watch is Priyanka Chopra’s performance. The vigor of a boxer and the willpower of a sportsman is well portrayed. She has lived as Mary Kom and has done justice to the role. If Mary Kom is the body, Priyanka Chopra is the life of the movie.

In short, this movie is a must-watch. It is a tribute to the power of womanhood and to a great living legend.
