“MOM” making waves across the globe! Don’t miss Sridevi’s top performance

Mom Movie Review: Script Analysis

Don’t mess with a daughter and if you do, be prepared to face her mother. Yes, you read that right, her mom. Sridevi as Devaki is not the helpless mother of Hindi movies of earlier times who would wail and sob and plead to the culprit “Bhagwan ke liye meri beti ko chhod do”. She is the 21st century Mom, who is loving and caring but not helpless. She is love and kindness personified in one moment but can turn into Maa Durga the very next to fight the demons of society and protect her children. This is the mom who doesn’t hesitate to punish her daughter’s rapists and stands as an inspiration in a country like ours where a girl is raped by some wolves openly in the public and others take the sheer pleasure of filming the video and sharing it on social media.

This aptly justifies the dialogue, “Since God cannot be everywhere, He created Mother”.

Ravi Udyawar, Girish Kohli and Kona Venkat Rao take a bow!

Mom Movie Review: Star Performance

Sridevi shows that she is one of the finest actors Bollywood has ever produced and can be proud of. The veteran actress carries the entire film on her shoulders and how! Nobody could have essayed Devaki better than her I feel. At times during the movie I felt, she is not playing Devaki, she IS Devaki. She is an inspiration for not only aspiring actors but also for B-Town’s younger generation of actors. To describe in one word, she is outstanding. However, a Delhi woman speaking Hindi with a south accent sounds a bit too odd. I’m sure the makers could have come up with a solution for this.

Has Nawazuddin Siddiqui ever failed to impress? I can’t think of any film where he has! The way he gets into the skin of the character is commendable! The supremely talented actor only gets better with every film I feel. In Bollywood, if anyone can compete with Nawazuddin, it’s Nawazuddin himself! What a performance!

Akshaye Khanna impresses as the tough crime branch cop. I wonder why he doesn’t work in more films.

Pakistani actors Adnan Siddiqui and Sajal Ali, both of who make their Bollywood debut with Mom, put up a nice performance as father and daughter. Adnan Siddiqui is especially brilliant as a grief-stricken father desperate to get justice for his daughter who is a piece of his heart.

While every actor has put in their best performance, Nawazuddin Siddiqui steals the show!

Mom Movie Review: The Last Word

We need more moms like Devaki to protect our daughters in a society which is NOT safe for women and a paradise for rapists. Three and half stars for this one!
