Sridevi’ last Hindi film (English Vinglish) released 5 years ago and now she’s back. She played a mother in that film and plays a mother yet again in Mom. Although in the former, her character just didn’t revolve around just being a mom. In “Mom” Sridevi can be seen getting her life together as a mother and solving various conspiracies around her daughter.
By the looks of the trailer, this film is not just going to be aesthetically pleasing, but promises power packed performances as well. Sridevi can of course be touted as one of most (rather the most) good looking moms in Bollywood and here she pulls off a rather no make-up look with grace. Akshaye Khanna makes an appearance after Dishoom and looks as dapper as always. Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays a cameo, but you can’t just recognise him at the first instance, but of course his performance seems top notch.
The film also stars Sajal Ali, who is a Pakistani actress and plays Sridevi’s daughter in the film, and Adnan Siddiqui. Directed by Ravi Udyawar, Mom is a woman-centric movie, produced by Sridevi’s husband, Boney Kapoor, Mom releases on July 7th.
