Mimi is the same movie as English Babu Desi Mem, which itself was a remake of Zamane Ko Dikhane Hai. Sure, the details are different, but the same question of “is the better parent the non-biological one who loves the child, or the rich biological one who can give the child a good life?” is the same. And it is a remarkably common question in Indian film!
This is just a thought experiment, I’m gonna see how many I can come up with, you carry on in the comments if you think of others.
