Mimi, Sardar Udham & Shershaah shine at Filmfare Awards Featured

The 67th Filmfare Awards for 2022 were given out on Tuesday night. The awards ceremony saw the coming together of the entire Hindi film industry under a roof. The three films which emerged as the big winners of the evening were Kriti Sanon starrer Mimi, Vicky Kaushal-led Sardar Udham and Sidharth Malhotra’s Shershaah.

All three films that grabbed the highest number of awards were OTT releases. Mimi revolved around a small-town girl from Rajasthan, played by Sanon, who gets offered Rs 20 lakh to act as a surrogate for an American couple. The middleman was played by Pankaj Tripathi. Though the film couldn’t impress the film critics, it did intrigue the audience. The film had a digital release on Netflix. Sardar Udham, helmed by Shoojit Sircar, was loved by the audience and film critics alike. It was based on the story of ‘revolutionary’ Udham Singh who avenged the massacre of Jallianwala Bagh by shooting Michael O’Dwyer in London, in March 1940.

Shershaah, produced by Karan Johar, became one of the most viewed films on Amazon Prime Video. The film featured Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani in the lead roles. The film was centred around the life of Captain Vikram Batra, who fought till his last breath during the 1999 Kargil war.
