Will Sri Devi be able to deliver the stunning performance she gave in Sadma?
Congratulations to Sri Devi for her 300th film. With Mom, Sri Devi will complete her third century in Bollywood. She started her journey as a child actress in 1967 and then moved on to give the Bollywood some of the best movies in 80’s. She did comedy in ChaalBaaz and also gave a stunning performance in Sadma. Now she’s giving another thriller Mom.
She isn’t a bad Mom
While the early reviews on Mom pictured Sri Devi in bad light, the critics are silenced on negative role of Sri Devi in the movie. She’s a caring mom but her daughter sees her as a villain. There is something wrong between the mom and daughter and this wrong is described in one sentence “how would you make a choice between worse and worst”. It seems that mom is trying to protect her daughter but she herself gets involved in the mess.
Mom is a story of a mother of two daughters. Arya is her elder daughter and she has different thoughts about mother-daughter relationship. She views the relations in the other way that is “daughter enters into a mother’s life and not vice versa”. Theirs is a happy family but suddenly things started going out of control from Arya’s end. Arya needs her mother’s help but she isn’t ready to understand the helplessness of her mother. Sri Devi is observing the things from start but couldn’t stop Arya. Finally, it is revealed that Arya isn’t the real daughter of Mom.

“It will work at the box office” said a worried Sri Devi
Raveena Tandon gave a similar performance in Maatr but it crashed on the box office. But Sri Devi is confident on success of the movie. In Maatr, Raveena Tandon was alone dragging the movie but in Mom, there is an impressive star-cast.
Mom First Look & Poster
It is a handmade poster that shows a woman with two distinct personalities. The message that goes to the public is that both the mother and daughter are women but they have different personalities. The poster has Sri Devi and Sajal Khan standing back to back. The name of the movie is written in bold with the letter “O” of Mom in red color. Also there is Love written with two question marks – one each for mother and daughter.
