2021 Awards: Which Social Issue Movie Was Most Interesting to Discuss? Mimi and Surrogacy, or Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui and Transexuality?

Thank goodness, a year that was low on social issue movies. Or at least, low on movies we actually felt like watching.

This is a DCIB specific question! Forget the large context and blah blah blah. As a member of the DCIB community, did you find discussing the ethics of surrogacy in Mimi more interesting?

Or the ethics of trans representation and recognition in Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui?

Personally, I found the Mimi discussion more interesting!!! The ending of the film is so unrealistically easy, that it lead to some really good discussions about what a “hard” ending of that film would look like.

  1. Surrogacy with Mimi, because I have no resolution with trans representation. I still feel uncomfortable with Vaani as a trans girl, to the point that I don’t want to watch the film. But with Mimi, while I’m suspicious of some parts, I don’t feel bad for watching the movie, and in all honesty, I had never really thought about surrogacy in India before.

  2. Mimi because I also watched the original marathi movie.

    Mala Aai Vhhaychy’s ending was much more emotional. spoilers .

    The surrogate mother thought the boy will have a better life in the US and gave him away. But without him her life was too sad and she felt into depression. She decided to commit suicide. Thanks God in the last minute, the american mother came back with the boy who also had depression and stopped talking, playing and responding. He only felt better when he saw his mom and when they hugged.
