A mother is a symbol of strength and selfless love with a hint of Maa Durga that dwells within her.
Sridevi-starrer MOM is one movie that truly reinforces this thought! Debutant director Ravi Udyawar gets his sensibilities spot on in this slick fast paced revenge drama portraying a mother’s valour and the length she is willing to get justice for her child. Zee Cinema, Home Of Blockbusters, presents the premiere of MOM on Sunday, 14th January at 1:45 PM.
MOM marks the comeback of legendary actor Sridevi as her 300th film after a 5-year hiatus in Hindi Cinema. In the titular role, Sridevi is the greatest actor of her generation as she wins the Best Actress award at the recently held Zee Cine Awards 2018. Along with the iconic actor, this cinematic masterpiece also features a much-celebrated star cast comprising of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna along with supporting actors including Sejal Ali and Adnan Siddiqui with striking roles. Adding to this dream team is music maestro A.R. Rahman whose heart-warming background score and music works wonders for the film. This critically acclaimed movie has been nominated at several award shows in categories including Best Female Actor, Best Supporting Female Actor, Best Debutante Director, Best Writing, and many more.
Legendary actor Sridevi commented, “MOM, to me, wasn’t just another film; it was an experience and a journey that I partook to show viewers the tumultuous emotions of a mother. As an actor and a mother, myself, I personally felt the rage and agony that my character Devki underwent. Every nuance, every reaction that my character has evoked on-screen is something that I have felt and experienced personally while the story was being narrated to me. MOM narrates a hard-hitting message which has become one of the biggest requirements in current times.”
Speaking about the global appeal of the movie, producer Boney Kapoor commented, “We are so very proud about how the movie continues to connect with the audience all over, especially Russia and now Armenia. 'MOM' exemplifies that strong performances and superior storytelling can win hearts and transcend boundaries. We knew MOM's story had the power to resonate with people across the globe”
MOM is the story of Devki Sabarwal (Sridevi), a biology teacher who longs for her 18-year-old step daughter Arya’s (Sejal Ali) love and acceptance. An unfortunate turn of events leads to Devki’s worst nightmares coming true; her daughter Arya is attacked and the perpetrators are acquitted of all charges. Losing all faith in the legal system, Devki unleashes her inner strength and takes it upon herself to get justice. Battling the hurdles created by an honest and diligent police inspector Matthew (Akshaye Khanna), with the help of a private detective Dayashankar Kapoor aka DK (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), Devki sets out to avenge the wrong done to her beloved daughter.
