Mom - Preview

wogma rating: Catch on DVD for sure (?)
quick review:

It is slow, it is very predictable. Yet, it is watchable. That's something, right? Mostly for its performances.

For a film about a mom's angst, Sridevi seems admirably restrained. The trailer gives it a sense of controlled concern while still being an edgy thriller.

While I don't think of Mom as Sridevi's come-back because she did do English Vinglish. However, if a return after 5 years is a come-back, the theme reminds me of Jazbaa. It bothers me that a lead actress from yesteryears, is more likely than not to come back as a mother – that too whose child is in deep trouble.

That's why I hope it is at least as much a thriller as it is about a mom's angst, if not more.

Mom releases on 7 July, 2017.

Music Reviews:
Indian Express - "that there is a composer who has the gall to try exploring the unchartered territory, is commendable"
Milliblog – in a 200-worder "From the familiar and the bizarre… to eventually the highly unconventional – Rahman covers an interestingly varied range"
