Mee Raqsam Hindi Movie Review: Story & Performances 

In the midst of the abundance of frequently released crime thrillers, the movie 'Mee Raqsam' provides a refreshing break with its unique and distinct content.

The story revolves around Salim, a tailor (played by Danish Husain), and his daughter Maryam (played by Aditi Subedi). The film beautifully showcases the strong bond between the father and daughter. Maryam's mother had a passion for Bharatnatyam dance and would occasionally involve Maryam in her performances, igniting a spark within her for the art form.

Following her mother's demise after a prolonged illness, Salim encourages Maryam to pursue Bharatnatyam by joining a dance class. Maryam's dance teacher, Uma (played by Sudeepta Singh), is impressed with her talent from the very beginning.

However, Maryam's relatives, especially her aunt (played by Shraddha Kaul) and grandmother (played by Farrukh Jafar), are unhappy with her decision and force her to join a sewing class instead. Upon learning about Maryam's absence from the dance class, Uma meets Salim and praises Maryam's rapid progress. Jaiprakash, a businessman (played by Rakesh Chaturvedi Om), tries to belittle Salim by raising religious concerns.

Salim discusses the situation with Uma, who suggests a solution that allows Maryam to continue attending the dance class before going to school. This arrangement continues for some time, and Maryam is overjoyed to rejoin her dance class. However, the religious leader Hashim Seth (played by Naseeruddin Shah) discovers this and attempts to prevent Salim from sending Maryam to the dance school. Despite the challenges, Salim remains firm in his decision.

Day by day, the family faces increasing deprivation, from being barred from going to the mosque to having their electricity disconnected. Maryam gradually realizes that these hardships are a result of her pursuit of dance. A progressive-minded auto-driver, Ashfaque (played by Kaustubh Shukla), assists them during this difficult period by connecting them with other drivers who can help with their clothing needs.

Uma shares the good news with Maryam that she has been selected, along with another girl, to participate in the Inter-District Bharatnatyam Competition. However, Maryam informs Uma that she will no longer be attending the dance class. Despite her father's efforts to persuade her to continue dancing, disregarding the difficulties they face, Maryam remains resolute in her decision.

One day, two individuals on a bike vandalize their home by throwing stones through the window. This incident convinces Maryam to persist with her dance training and participate in the competition. The rest of the story revolves around whether she can overcome the barriers and succeed in the competition.

Danish Husain delivers an excellent performance throughout, portraying a father who supports his daughter in pursuing her dreams, making his character truly special. The extraordinary bond between the father and daughter is beautifully depicted.

Aditi Subedi shines brilliantly in her role, and her dance performance in the finale is mesmerizing. Naseeruddin Shah impresses even in his special appearance.

Director Baba Azmi makes an effective directorial debut, presenting compelling content. However, apart from notable performances by Aditi Subedi, Danish Husain, and Naseeruddin Shah, the other actors fail to leave a strong impression. 'Mee Raqsam' is available for streaming on ZEE5.
