Mary Kom, a Brand of National Integration: "Kommitment" to Self and Nation
Abstract: The sports biographical films trace the social mobility of a real successful athlete. The rationale behind the judicious choice of a professional sport, impactful sportsman or sportswoman as the subject, infusing popular melodrama, employing effective mise - en - scene to bewitch the audience, and the didactic communication of the film raises apprehensions towards its intent. Mary Kom, a sports biopic of Mary Kom projects the exemplary self - made athlete subject to propagate self - reliance as a panacea to unemployment. Individual achievement is magnified in the name of patriotism by relegating the state's responsibility to further the citizen's aspirations. The ideology of self - subsistence and inclusive nationalism gets permeated the film.
