The Mimi movie starts in a contractor office in Delhi where the contractor was talking on the phone to a foreign couple, John and Summer, about providing them with a girl, but the couple is not interested anymore and has moved to Rajasthan.
The Driver, Bhanupratap Pandey, of the taxi in which John and Summer are traveling, was listening to this conversation and misunderstood that John wants a call girl. Later, Summer explains to Bhanu that John does not want a call girl. Instead, they look for a girl to be a surrogate mother to John and Summer’s child.
Then Bhanu decides that he will help John and Summer to find a suitable surrogate for them in exchange for money, and John and Summer make an offer of 5 Lacks INR to Bhanu for helping them to find a surrogate.
Bhanu takes John and Summer to a lady who has given birth to many children before, but they reject the lady because they are looking for a girl who is fit and healthy, who can give birth to a healthy child.
Then Bhanu takes them to a restaurant where John and Summer see Mimi dancing there, and they instantly decide that they need a girl like Mimi to be their surrogate, so they tell this to Bhanu. Bhanu then tells them that why a girl like Mimi when Mimi herself will be ready to be their surrogate.
Then Bhanu makes friends with Mimi and Shama, Mimi’s best friend and a singer. Then indirectly, Bhanu tries to make them feel how fortunate it is for a girl to be a mother and give birth to a child.
Then after getting an opportunity, Bhanu tells Mimi that there is a Foreigner couple at the restaurant and wants Mimi to give birth to their child. Mimi misunderstood that Bhanu is asking Mimi to sleep with the foreigner. She gets angry and slaps Bhanu.
But Bhanu again tried to convince Mimi and told her that Mimi misunderstood him and slapped him without listening to him. Bhanu tells Mimi that Mimi does not have to sleep with John to give birth to their child.
Then Bhanu informs Mimi about surrogacy. Mimi’s dream is to become an actor and go to Bollywood, and she is working hard to save money to afford all the expenditures to become an actor.
At first, Mimi refuses to be a surrogate, but then Bhanu tells Mimi that she will get 20 Lacks INR for being a surrogate to John and Summer’s child, and then she can live her dream life without any struggle.
Then after thinking a lot, Mimi agrees to be a Surrogate. Then after the surgery, Mimi starts living with her best friend Sham because her parents and society do not know anything about surrogacy, and they will not accept this at all.
Ans Bhanu also stays with them as their caretaker. After few months, Mimi goes for some tests at the clinic where the doctor tells John and Summer that there is a problem with the child and their child will be abnormal.
This news left Summer heartbroken, and they decide that they do not want to raise an abnormal child and do not want the child anymore, but they do not dare to face Mimi, so they tell Bhanu to tell Mimi to abort the child.
But Mimi decides that she will raise the child on her own.
In Mimi Movie, Mimi’s family then finds about her pregnancy and starts asking her about the father. Then Mimi tells them that Bhanu is the father of the child. Mimi’s family is very disappointed with her, but they still support her.
Then after so many struggles and facing a lot, Mimi finally gave birth to a boy child. The baby turned out to be perfectly normal and healthy, and there is no complication with her. The doctor tells Shama that the early report was false, and that happens sometimes, and the baby is perfectly fine.
Then Mimi and the whole family are stunned by looking how fare the baby is and douts that is this even Bhanu’s child? Then Mimi and the entire family start taking care of the baby, and they all love him so much, and they name the boy Raj.
After four years, John and Summer return to take their child back with them. Mimi tells them that Raj is her son now, and John and Summer have no right on him as they abandoned him when he was inside Mimi, and they never even considered what will happen to Mimi.
John tells them that Summer attempted suicide after going back, and they never looked for any surrogate. John warns them that they should return Raj to John and Summer or he will take legal actions against them.
After thinking about this a lot, Mimi decides to give Raj back to Summer and John. They go to John and Summer to return Raj to them. Summer refuses by saying that Raj is only Mimi’s son, and John and Summer are adopting another girl from the orphanage.
Summer tells Mimi that she can never be happy by taking Raj away from Mimi, and even Raj will not be happy by staying away from Mimi.
