After many months of the original released date, I finally managed to watch the movie, Meerabai Not Out. Though a common plot, common sentiments, usual hindi movie story line, but somehow I felt good watching the movie, and feeling happy after the movi. May be I am passionate about cricket in a big way, and priorities in my life starts with sports, that is why I connected to the movie.
Mandirabedi did well in a simple way, and though it is semi-realistic, the story of our life entangled with cricket has been very well portrayed. The daily blip-ups and gossips in school, the embarassments in coffee-shop, the hick-ups in family, but at the end, the game is a big healer..and that is why its not just a game in our country, its almost a religion.
As being rightly said in the movie..cricket is the only thing that unites people from different background, culture , language, race in our country.
I think every one gave good performance, did not overact, and a simple feel-good film is well made. I would give a 3 star.
