Rashmi Rocket, starring Taapsee Panu released on 15th October. The movie talks about the gender bias for women in sports & how societal barriers hinder Rashmi's sports career.
Directed by Akarsh Khurana, the movie has a great star cast including, Taapsee Pannu, Supriya Pathak, Priyanshu Painyuli, Shweta Tripathi.
A story that is important to be heard seems to be inspired by Santhi Soundarajan and Dutee Chand.
If you are still wondering if it's worth watching? I'll leave you with these tweets to decide.
Rashmi Rocket - well written and executed. Not that high on drama..but gives out a very strong message about the issues faced by the female athletes— Priyanka Arora (@Priyanka_arora9) October 15, 2021
few court room dialouges were interesting
Loved the performance of @taapsee@sspilgaonkar and #AbhishekBanerjee #RashmiRocket
Being a sports lover, lawyer & activist I adore all sports based movies. #RashmiRocket is yet another movie in that genre. @taapsee has once again performed brilliantly and I loved the mother daughter relationship & it’s lead dialogue;— SHATRUGHAN PAYAL SANDWA (@SHATRUGHANPAYA3) October 16, 2021
#RashmiRocket , just saw this movie, hats off to @MrAkvarious for writing a perfectly fit storyline for the audiences to get behind, this movie brings the best performance from @taapsee and she does not disappoint!#GodBless— Sarbjeet hayer (@KhalsaAngels99) October 15, 2021
#RashmiRocket is a movie that should be played mandatorily across schools. Esp. Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, where sports is not only for nationalism and passion but for sustenance. Thus when careers are targeted families are ruined across generations. Well done @taapsee! #goals— Sagarika Chakraborty (@me_sagarika) October 15, 2021

Film foundation is based on a solid story but over melodramatic writing, slow narrative & cursory direction makes it a poor watch. #TaapseePannu is repetitive & lacks versatility.Its a half baked sports drama which lacks entertainment.#RashmiRocketreview pic.twitter.com/MkN2VTjBc8
.@taapsee is a natural talent#RashmiRocket is relevant theme. It is a crusade against d unjust treatment of discriminatory practices against high performing female athletes, several of either gone into oblivion or lost the battle. Every state gov should play this movie in school pic.twitter.com/cQk19SPkUJ— Zeeshan Rashidi (@zhrashidi) October 16, 2021

Movie Review: #RashmiRocket— Filmfare (@filmfare) October 14, 2021
"@taapsee is the soul of the film. More than the physicality, it’s the portrayal of the sheer mental harassment, mental exhaustion, that must be praised. It’s as real as it gets. Bravo, Taapsee!" - @devscribblerhttps://t.co/Wm63X2VspD
Watched #RashmiRocket just now. Good to see a movie on Gender Testing in Athletics. @taapsee I didn’t want the movie to end. Felt like there is more to the story. Would love to see a sequel on Rashmi after childbirth :)— Arshi Yasin (@arshi_yasin) October 15, 2021
A pro female athlete after pregnancy is another stigma!!!
What a lovely film it was #RashmiRocket— Dhwani Gautam (@dhwanigautam) October 16, 2021

Has a solid theme,novelty value,relevant message,good set of actors & bankable performances.
Flaws-Floundering pace, specially in 1st half,too much drama that slackens the sharpness.
But 2nd half redeems itself.
I feel the film could hv been sharper & better.
The movie is currently streaming on Zee5.
