Taapsee Pannu In Top Form Unpacks The Mithali Raj Story

Taapsee Pannu's impressively steady performance, Shabaash Mithu is anything but a washout. The occasional false stroke does mar the overall impact but as a fond tribute to a cricketer whose feats transformed the fortunes of women in India's most popular sport, it puts just enough on the scoreboard ...(more)

A slow-paced drama about the women in blue

The movie doesn�t amply showcase those edge-of-the-seat, nail-biting moments that would have unfolded in her life, especially during the 2017 world cup. Those keenly waiting to finally watch a movie revolving around Mithali, one of women�s cricket�s most iconic contemporary players, will certainly b...(more)

Taapsee Pannu film has rare moments of humanity buried in a Mithali Raj career highlight reel

Not to mention all the inevitable cringe-inducing scenes along the way - a journalist asking Mithali who her male favourite cricketer is at a press conference, an uncle at a sports bar asking the bartender to change the channel because who wants to watch Indian cricket, and so on.(more)

Taapsee Pannu is much better than this Srijit Mukerji film

The scenes in which the enmity between a senior player and the rookie are played out also feel far too familiar, as well as those in which she is made fun of. And while there is some amount of cricketing action in the fields in and out of the country, nothing is really goose-bump inducing, edge-of-...(more)

Taapsee Pannu's Homage To Mithali Raj Begins Beautifully But Fails To Find Its Voice

Taapsee Pannu as Mithali Raj signs a wooden bat with a ball point cello gripper pen in the end. No one in an entire production and post-production team found that to be absurd. The movie could have been a lot of great things but it ended up being average.(more)

Taapsee Pannu as Mithali Raj rises from ashes in this tale of loss and honour

Srijit Mukerji does a good job with the direction in his first Viacom project. And Taapsee Pannu, full marks to her for acting and perfecting her posture, behavioural pattern, body language as a professional skipper. It ain�t no easy task. The characters were near-perfectly baked and the music is su...(more)

The Taapsee Pannu starrer SHABAASH MITHU tells an inspiring tale of one of the greatest cricket legends in the world.

Taapsee Pannu puts in a lot of hard work and it shows. One expects a lot from her in terms of acting prowess and she doesn�t disappoint. However, she�s restrained in a few places, possibly as Mithali, in real life, is not overtly expressive. Yet, a little better act would have worked more in these s...(more)

Laboured innings that loses way after a promising start

Shabaash Mithu deserves a chance for the boisterous energy of young Mithali and Noorie. Look around, many like them are keen to bowl you over with their deft footwork.(more)
