Mom Movie Review by Taran Adarsh, Rajeev Masand, Anupama Chopra, Komal Nahta – We are back again this Friday and come up with a new movie review of Mom. The film is directed by Ravi Udyawar and produced by Boney Kapoor, Sunil Manchanda, Naresh Agarwal, Mukesh Talreja and Gautam Jain. The film starring Sridevi, Adnan Siddiqui, Sajal Ali, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna.

Mom is Sridevi’s 300th film and is being released in the 50th year of her film career and the movie is releasing in four languages.  Now let’s have a look at Mom movie review by top Indian Hindi film critics like Rajeev Masand, Taran Adarsh, Komal Nahata, Raja Sen, Anupama Chopra, Kamal R Khan, IMDB Rating, Times of India, Hindustan Times, and much more at here.

Movie Story – The life of a biology teacher Devki Sabarwal (Sridevi) and her husband Anand (Adnan Siddiqui)’s family life in Delhi is shattered when her daughter, Arya (Sajal Ali) is physically assaulted by Jagan (Abhimanyu Singh) and the gang in a black SUV. Arya’s disfigured body is discovered in a ditch. A legal battle ensues as Arya offers a statement pinning the perpetrators. But the lack of incriminating evidence against the accused leads to naught. Devki is assisted by a private detective, Daya Shankar Kapoor (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and Inspector Mathew Francis (Akshaye Khanna).

1.) Rating: 3.5/5. Review by Ahana Bhattacharya on Koimoi

Gripping story, direction, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui who is a delight to watch, While Sridevi’s acting is brilliant she needs to work on her accent. Also, the film could be shortened in the second half. We need more moms like Devaki to protect our daughters in a society which is NOT safe for women and a paradise for rapists.

 

2.) Rating: 3/5. Review by Rohit Vats on Hindustan Times

The good thing is, Mom does what it intends to: Become a film that can hold the audience’s attention for 148 minutes. There are no intricacies that unfold step by step (it’s mostly predictable, really), but Girish Kohli’s screenplay ensures an entertaining drama.

 

3.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Shubra Gupta on Indian Express

There are other good actors here, apart from Nawaz and Abhimanyu. Sajal Ali, who plays the young victim, is particularly effective. Adnan Siddiqui, as Sridevi’s husband, is very dishy but suffers from the same problem the rest of the cast: not enough heft.
The heavy-lifting is left to Sridevi, and she goes all out. But she is made to do too much: too much widening of the eyes, too much narrowing of the mouth, and too many things we don’t really believe she can do.

 

 

4.) Rating: 3.5/5. Review by Saibal Chatterjee on NDTV Movies

Sajal Ali, in the role of the troubled daughter, matches the veteran of 300 films step for step. Adnan Siddiqui is unwaveringly solid as the doting father and ever-beholden husband who stands like a rock by the two women.

 

5.) Rating: 4/5. Review by Meena Iyer on Times of India

Mom reminds you for the umpteenth time that we’re in Nirbhaya country. Like other films on the same subject, debutant Ravi Udyawar’s emotional thriller tells you that India, or should that be New Delhi specifically, isn’t safe enough for women, especially young girls. And its relevance makes it an important watch.

 

6.) Rating: 3/5. Review by Sukanya Sharma on Rediff

The film’s predictability is not as much an issue as its messy climax that loses much of its drive and darkness to accommodate wishy-washy masala tropes, an ill-timed Rahman ditty and reckless ideas of fair play.
