Rashmi Rocket : Movie Review – One of the most SENSATIONAL story ever told in Sports Drama Genre. Rashmi’s story is nothing less than a revolution in female athletes world.



While looking back sports drama made over the years or one can better say biographicals, then we have seen multiple classics but how many if them were sensational tales? Some were extremely emotional and some were inspirational but when it comes to telling a story that actually explored quite a revolutionary subject in this sports world, Rashmi Rocket stands tall and apart. Watching this kind of story in mainstream genre like Biographical and Sport drama is really something for Indian/Bollywood Audience.




This ZEE5 Original narrates the inspiring story of a small-town girl, Rashmi (who is called Rocket because of her Rocket speed running) who overcomes all societal barriers to become a national-level athlete, but her glory is hindered when she is asked to undergo a gender test. This individual fight becomes a fight for the entire female gender athletes who have seen worst experiences entitled by this scientifically inaccurate test and it also makes a speech on inequality between male and female athletes. The writing is top notch, perhaps the most uncommon yet remarkable issue ever handled in this genre. The screenplay might go wrong here and there as it falls prey to dramatic notion of the bollywood filmmaking but the core of the story is never hurt. From ambitions to nepotism to politics to law & justice, it covers too much for one narrative and well, that’s what i think makes it special.




Coming to the performances, Rashmir Rocket is pretty good here. Taapsee Pannu as Rashmi gets into the skin of the character and derives multiple changes according to situations effortlessly. Priyanshu Painyuli and Abhishek Banerjee both fumble at the beginning but later look more confident. The experience of Supriya Pathak gives exactly what director wanted in that role. Rashmi Rocket is little longer than expected because the songs and the Romance, which were not much essential parts of the main context, but figuratively it’s still fine as far as mainstream bollywood film is concerned.



Director Akarsh Khurrana has finally got a product to remember. His directorial career so far is decent but nothing remarkable, so this film might be the best bet for that feat. Excluding some flaws here and there and scattered storytelling at some occasions, Rashmi Rocket isn’t damaged anywhere. It flys off high and provides you a worthy ride for two hours so don’t miss it. Strongly recommended for female audience.
