Mary Kom is an infinitely better sports film than the bloated mess called Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.

If nothing else, Omung Kumar shows an occasional inclination to locate his narrative in largely believable settings and situations. It is in the pitching of the drama that he goes wrong.

A couple of the characters are utterly unconvincing. The boxer’s husband, played by Darshan Kumar, is too much of a willingly suffering man to be true.

And the boxing federation boss who makes life miserable for Mary Kom and other female boxers is a brazen caricature that gobbles up footage without adding any value to
the story.

The question is: should you watch Mary Kom? You should, the simple reason being that we owe it to the pugilist who has gone where few Indians have ever gone – to the pinnacle of her sport – and stayed there long enough not to be remembered as a flash in the pan.
