Shabaash Mithu: The Struggling Story of a Female Cricketer Whose Batting Answered Them All


The trailer for Shabas Mithu, based on the life of veteran cricketer Mithali Raj, is out. Former cricketer and chairman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India Sourav Ganguly released the trailer. It is available on YouTube from Viacom 18 Studios. The Shabas Mithu trailer is also getting a lot of viewing. In this, glimpses of the struggle and journey of an ordinary female cricketer can be seen. Mithali’s achievements as a cricketer are unmatched. She is one of the most successful players in the history of women’s cricket. It is believed that under Mithali’s leadership, the face of Indian women’s cricket changed. Just as the traditional form of the India team had changed under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly two decades ago.

The trailer begins with the game of cricket itself. The boys playing cricket took a hard shot at the ball which was caught by a girl fervently watching the match off the pitch. He is admonished. But the girl’s interest is in cricket. She is none other than Mithali Raj. Cricket is considered a men’s game. It wasn’t easy for Mithali to think about sports. Especially in the conservative society of India, where people do not easily accept girls’ penchant for cricket. The same thing happened with Mithali. Although his attraction to cricket is not only, but also the passion for this game is seen in him. This is the reason why Mithali never gave up the fight.

Taapsee Pannu in the role of Mithali Raj.

Vijay Raj is in the strong role of coach

The role of Mithali Raj’s trainer is played by Vijay Raj. Mithali’s game was recognized by his coach in his childhood and gave him direction in grooming. Mithali works very hard and then also becomes part of the national and then international team. Despite being part of the national and international team, Mithali’s fight does not end. Sometimes they have to deal with teammates and sometimes with cricket administrators. They are also victims of different types of discrimination. But he also shuts everyone’s mouth with his passionate game and there comes a day when the country makes remarkable achievements in women’s cricket thanks to his game.

The lead role of Mithali Raj is played by Taapsee Pannu. Directed by Srijit Mukherji, apart from Taapsee Vijay Raj, Mumtaz Sarkar, Brijendra Kala also have major roles. Currently, all the characters look strong in the trailer. The film will be released on July 15.

What are people saying about the trailer?

There are mixed responses regarding the trailer. Many people thanked the entire Taapsee Pannu team, Sreejith Sarkar and Shabas Mithu, calling the film inspiring. People believe that the trailer is proof that seeing the movie in theaters will bring a lot of emotions. One even praised and said that seeing a glimpse of Shabas Mithu, he realized that this movie is something much bigger than a biopic. In this, along with sport, a great issue of gender discrimination has also been raised, which extends in the family, society and all sports boards. I hope this movie is successful.

Many people wished for Mithali Raj after the trailer and said that they have been waiting for him for a long time. Someone wrote: The movie trailer proves once again that behind any kind of success, there is a lot of struggle. This movie will definitely be an inspiration for girls. We can hope that the story of Mithali Raj will inspire many daughters in the country to play cricket.

By the way, those who criticize Shabas Mithu are no less. Some people have even talked about boycotting Shabas Mithu, calling Taapsee a special Bollywood gang. People said that now is the time to teach Taapsee Pannu, who made inappropriate comments, a lesson. Anyway, this movie is very poorly made and Taapsee Pannu cannot do full justice to the role of a cricketer like Mithali Raj.
