Mom is a emotional revenge drama by Ravi Udyawar. The film revolves around a small family.The family has a couple & their two daughters.The elder daughter Arya (Sajal Ali)is the Step daughter of Devki(Sridevi).Arya do not consider Devki as her mom & call her“Mam” instead of mom. Devki tries very hard to win the love of her daughter. Their life takes a turn when Arya, a teen of modern times goes to a party & gets gangraped by a School mate & his friends.
Sridevi as the mother of the daughter has played a wonderful role. After losing the court trial, the family breaks looking at the grief & pain of their daughter. The Sensitivity of a rape and psychological effect of it has been shown meticulously.The incident further widens the gap between Devki & Arya. Broken by her daughter condition & pain, Devki takes things in her own hands to bring the rapists to justice.
Then enters the DK(Nawazuddin Siddique),a private detective from Daryaganj. He is looking convincing in this role. He plays an important role in the film, helping Devki achieve what she wants. As a small time detective Nawaz has yet again given a great performance.He is the one who can give any performance with equal perfection.
Akshaye Khanna essays role of a Cop in the movie.He has an important role too.The dialogue of the movie are fantastic.The director Ravi Udyawar has been able to get the best out of the actors. Good music is the soul of a good movie, this movie has music in perfect sync.
Sridevi has done a comeback after five years. She is looking amazing with such great acting.She seems powerful & unstoppable protecting her daughter. Sajal Ali as Arya has done a good job,she has an expressive face and has put her best in her character.
The film is a must watch all the fans of good indian cinema. An emotional & powerful treat is waiting for you.
I am giving this movie 3.5 stars.
