    Mom is an important film. Though its theme is nothing new the debutant director ensures a vigorous accountability to almost every scene. You may be tempted to wonder why Mom seems such a special film with almost every shot exuding a freshness and a secret relevance that may or may not be revealed at any point.It’s just so reassuring to have Sridevi around. Thank God some things never change. This is one of the best films in recent times. And not only because of Sridevi.

    There’s a lot packed in here. To begin with, the film dwells on the dynamics of a teenager’s standoffish relationship with her stepmom. This entire track is beautifully handled. Then again, it is post the teenager’s abduction and assault when the film reveals its true facet. To say anything more on the actual plot is to risk spoiling its surprises.

    MOM is an important film for three reasons. 1) – Its testimony that Sridevi is one of the most accomplished actresses alive, 2) Ravi Udyawar is a filmmaker to look out for and last but not the least – it’s a salute to motherhood and womanhood. Go take your Moms and daughters along.

    ‘Mom’ is like a tale of fiery tigress, who can do anything in order to protect her cub. It’s a taut thriller which deserved to be seen.

    Not always an easy watch – it isn’t meant to be – MOM wields a heavy mallet, but it does so with purpose, precision and panache.

    We need more moms like Devaki to protect our daughters in a society which is NOT safe for women and a paradise for rapists.

    The biggest problem with the film is that the second half deviates from the dark and delicious themes of the first, to indulge in the revenge drama track. While the situations in the second half are written with perfect logic, they are bit lofty. The action and the suspense approach distracts from the much more powerful story of mother, daughter and a family slowly nursing itself out of tragedy. But that’s how it plays out. The crucial moment in the climax though, makes it all worth the while. Mom is quite literally a thrill-a-minute ride. Its scenes are powerful and the best part is, the effort put in by the actors. Director Ravi Udyawar crafts an intense, taut and gratifying thriller. It’s a must watch.

    Mom is a must watch because of the powerhouse performer that is Sridevi. Despite the shortcomings, the film keeps you on the edge solely because of her stellar act.

    It’s Sridevi’s show all the way through.While the devious revenge tactics of Devki is scintillating, the director seems to have lost his grip while nearing the climax.

    Mom is not just a revenge saga. It runs deeper than that and talks about a mother’s undying love.The film reminded me of Agatha Christie’s famous words, “A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorsely all that stands in its path.”In a nutshell, Mom is worth every penny for Sridevi- Nawazuddin’s stellar act and Ravi Udyawar’s brilliant execution!

    To give credit where it’s due, Mom does fan the audience’s anger against people who indulge in anti-women crimes. However, it never intends to create a full-blown fire that would change the attitude of potential criminals in such situations. Instead, Sridevi takes it upon herself to deliver justice – thereby undermining the authority of law and related machinery. This is where Pink excelled.

    Although the production of the film makes it look grand and fancy, the climax is too dramatic for such an intense film.

    Mom scrutinises and lays bare the gaping holes in the law in this country. Its method of making the criminals meet their fate is over-dramatised and problematic. And unbelievable. But who can say no to a tale of a mother’s revenge?

    …while most thrillers tend to overstay their welcome beyond 90-minutes’ screen time, this one doesn’t feel almost two-and-half hours long. If anything, far too much is going on here. You might question a lot. But so much of it works.

    I don’t know if Mom could have been a better film if the writing were tighter. Its pauses had a reason that might not be in line with that of a thriller. I don’t know if Mom could have been a better film if the writing at least tried to be unpredictable. What I know is I will look forward to director, Ravi Udyawar’s next work. I wouldn’t mind watching more films written by him, Girish Kohli or Kona Venkat Rao. I certainly want to watch the next Sridevi film, something that I couldn’t imagine saying 25-30 years ago. That is good enough.

    Despite all my empathy towards victims, a small part of me debated if taking law into your hands is the right thing to do or even promote, in a film. The minor boy who rapes his classmate is also raped in jail. Isn’t that tragic too? But Mom is not Pink. It’s not a commentary on society’s patriarchal mindset or on an immediate need of gender equality. It is an emotional story of a mother getting even with a bunch of criminals.

    Filled with exact amount of all the elements, Sridevi’s this film delivers a perfect movie while handling the subject tactfully. The movie holds the audience attention for 148 minutes while unfolding the truths of the problems faced by women in the society. Give this a thorough watch this weekend.

    Mom is a far from perfect film, but it’s never boring. Sridevi’s terrific turn makes up for many of the script problems. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five.

    MOM is a terribly long-drawn out film and even though horrendously cliched and predictable, but worth a watch for Sridevi, who is simply stupendous.

    Flaws aside, Mom benefits from a good production value that makes it far superior to the Raveena Tandon starrer Maatr. The performances may not be topnotch but they are reasonably good. But ultimately it is a cliché driven film that fails to match its pre-release hype.

    Sridevi has to do the heavy-lifting of the film, as actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Akshaye Khanna, Sajal Ali and Adnan Siddiqui are not left with enough in hand. It gets so busy keeping Sridevi at the centre-stage that this rape-and-revenge drama turns less impactful.

    The emotional pull of the first half and Sridevi’s acting excellence notwithstanding, Mom in many ways is as dangerous as the loud, raucous, not-even-pretending-to-be-progressive-about-women commercial Bollywood of the 1970s and 80s.

    Mom is a beautifully written and excellently directed film with landmark performances by its cast. It will appeal to the audience and emerge victorious at the box-office despite its terribly slow start and high cost of production (total investment: Rs. 41 crore). Its word of mouth will be very strong.

    In her first full-fledged role after the much-loved “English Vinglish” in 2012, she proves that she is the embodiment of the new age Bollywood mother – willing to kill anyone who has wronged her family instead of meekly accepting what life hands out.

    Mom is a strange brew: audience-appeasing thriller, relationship drama and social commentary all rolled into one. To Udyawar’s credit, he manages to make it look cohesive, even as he struggles to contend with the moral quagmire of revenge and opts instead for the escape of pulp.
