Ghoomer Review

Written by on August 18, 2023

GHOOMER is the story of a physically challenged cricket player. Anina (Saiyami Kher) has always been interested in cricket since she was a child. She resides with her father (Shivendra Singh Dungarpur), grandmother (Shabana Azmi) and brothers Anuj (Piyush Raina) and Tishu (Akshay Joshi). She pursues the sport even while studying and gets shortlisted for the selection process for the Indian cricket team. While she’s on the crease, the session is interrupted by a drunken Padam Singh Sodhi aka Paddy (Abhishek Bachchan), a failed player. In a drunken state, he bowls to Anina and gets her out. He publicly concludes that she’s unfit to be selected. Anina, however, gets selected. At a celebratory dinner, Paddy lands up to get his share of alcohol. When he sees that Anina is one of the selected players, he insults her and the management that selected her. Anina bursts out crying and leaves. While returning home in her boyfriend Jeet’s (Angad Bedi) car, she meets with an accident. The doctors try their best but are not able to save her right arm. Anina, obviously, is shattered. The selection team looks for her replacement. Anina feels like a burden as she struggles to do normal chores after the amputation. On her birthday, Paddy meets her. He’s the only one who doesn’t take pity on her and advises her to become an expert bowler with her left hand. Anina rejects his proposal and blames him for her situation. Slowly, she warms up to this idea and begins her training under Paddy. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
