Taapsee Pannu’s much-awaited ‘Rashmi Rocket’ premieres on October 15 in digital streaming platform Zee5. Directed by Akarsh Khurana under the sharp screenplay of Aniruddha Guha, Rashmi Rocket is a sports drama based on true life events. The movie does manage to capture all your attention with its opening scene in which Rashmi Vira (Taapsee Pannu) is forcefully arrested by a policeman in the middle of the night on the basis of a complaint that she is a man seeking shelter in a girl’s hostel. But does it have the crux to be worthy of a watch?

The concerns raised by Rashmi Rocket, a social-issue sports drama, are very legitimate. To be shoved up in a covert gender test at the start of the career has been seen as a real-life case with athletes such as Dutee Chand and Santhi Soundarajan. It is not just a story of one athlete. Carrying such a real and critical social issue on its back, Rashmi Rocket opens in a grand sequence but ultimately turns into a conventional melodrama with the evil motives of the antagonist.

The movie, unlike most sports dramas, does not just portray the nail-biting sports competition in the climax. This is more of a courtroom drama where the female protagonist, having left with no options, fights for her identity. Without being overly patriotic, it focuses majorly on the hardships that a female athlete has to face in this country. All of it has been magnificently portrayed by Taapsee Pannu.
