The film 'Me Raksam', released on OTT platform G5, truly shows the mirror to India's Ganges-Jamuni Tehzeeb. Its story is built around a father-daughter. It shows the struggle of the father on one side and the daughter on the other side wants to fulfill her dreams. But there are obstacles in his journey.
According to the story, a Muslim girl Maryam (Aditi Subedi) wants to learn Bharatanatyam dance with her studies and passion. To fulfill the daughter's dream, her Abbu Salim (Danish Hussain), who is a tailor by profession, tries everything possible.
Father gives daughter support
Salim enrolls his daughter in a class of Bharatanatyam dance teacher Uma (Sudipta Singh). But by doing so, his orthodox relatives, members of his community and elder Hashim Seth (Naseeruddin Shah) are angered and turned against him. On the other hand, Jayaprakash (Rakesh Chaturvedi Om), the chief patron of Bharatanatyam Academy, also feels that Mariam is learning Bharatanatyam with great passion even after being a Muslim girl.
Father does not back down from decision
To shatter Mary's dream, both sides put a lot of hurdles on their part. But even after this, Maryam's Abbu does not back down from her decision at all. So does Maryam succeed in fulfilling her dream even after so much pressure or does society say Maan gives up the dream of learning Bharatanatyam, this is further explained in the film.
Great music, great acting
The story of the film is woven with such a fabric that Ganga-Jamuni learns about Tehzeeb while fidgeting on the conservatism of the society. Baba Azmi, who landed for the first time in the field of direction, has filmed each scene very well. Talking about location, all the scenes look absolutely natural as per the story.
The music of the film has such a fine blend of classical and Sufi, which is new and different. This new effort of music director Ripul Sharma is liked by the ears.
Talking about acting, debutant Aditi has the potential to become the star of the future. On the other hand, Danish Hussain's performance in front of veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah looks very strong.
