What is Rashmi Rocket about?

Rashmi Rocket is inspired by the real-life story of Dutee Chand, but tells the story of a young female athlete called Rashmi Vera, a tour guide who gave up running after she lost her father in the 2001 earthquake.

However, she shows that she still has the speed and endurance to compete in high-level athletics after saving a soldier from stepping on a land mine.

Encouraged by her friends and colleagues, Rashmi returns to the sport she once loved but rumours that she is secretly a man start to spread throughout the local area.

The rumours and bullying only get worse when she competes in the Asia games, after which she is forced by the commission to undergo multiple blood tests to determine her gender.

What platforms are streaming Rashmi Rocket?

Rashmi Rocket will be exclusively streaming on the ZEE5 platform, as the movie is an original ZEE5 production.

The platform periodically offers a free trial period, which can be viewed on the site’s homepage, but only in select territories with premium accounts from Rs 499.

Therefore, fans should not expect the movie to be made available on other platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or Disney Plus Hotstar.

The first reviews are in…

The first reviews of Rashmi Rocket are in, and the movie has received a decidedly mixed reaction from film critics.

The Times of India gave the movie four stars out of five, stating that it “stays the course of informing, entertaining and educating its audience about an archaic practice.”

However, Rashmi Rocket received a disappointing two and a half stars out of five on The Indian Express and arguing that “You also have to get past the film throwing constructed spanners in the works.”

The movie also received three and a half stars from both Filmibeat and Bollywood Life with mixed reviews.

“Rocket is not just a tribute to women athletes who defy all odds to achieve their dreams, but also to every woman out there who dares to listen to her own voice, unafraid of breaking stereotypes.” – Madhuri V, via Filmibeat.
