Mom [Movie Review]

Mom [Movie Review] | I watched this one after watching several other Bollywood movies online. And Sridevi is starring in it too!

I remembered reading reviews online comparing this movie to several other movies, that somehow I could only remember a few. One of them is M4m4, a Malaysian movie where Nabila Huda starred in it and I reviewed it too. Another one is Kidnap with Halle Berry in it. 

And this week is gonna be about India's movies.

Mrs Devki is a popular but strict biology teacher. In one incident, a student, Mohit sends an offensive and lewd video to Arya and caught Devki's attention. When she learns that Mohit shared a lewd video, she confiscates the phone and throws it out of the window. 

Arya is Devki's stepdaughter who is distant and cold to her stepmother as she still cannot accept the loss of her mother (possibly death, despite Devki's numerous effort to approach her. 

In order to win Arya's heart, she reluctantly allows Arya to attend a party with her friends during Valentine's Day at a farmhouse called Zodiac Farms. At the party, Mohit tries again to court Arya but Arya's heart is set on another boy. Charles, Mohit's cousin tries to show Mohit how it is done by drugging a drink that he offers to Arya but was snatched by her friend. 

Hurt and embarrassed that Arya rejected him, Charles along with Mohit and two other guys, Joginder and Babu Ram (the security guard at Zodiac Farm), kidnaps Arya as she leaves the party. They rape her inside a car and dumps her in a drain, leaving her for dead. 

Meanwhile, Devki is frantic as Arya is not home after calling in a few hours earlier and her phone cannot be reached. She goes to the farm but couldn't find Arya and when she reports Arya's missing at the police station, it seems that nobody can do anything.

As she was leaving the station, a private detective, DK offers his service, to which Devki pays no mind. 

Arya was found by a passerby and brought to the hospital, barely alive. She undergoes various operations to save her life. When she finally comes to three days later, the police immediately takes her statement.

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.9/ 5.0 I was transfixed to the monitor the entire movie. I love the plot - how the mother devises her plan and execute them well. Be wary of mothers OK!

Man, I cried at the beginning of the movie when I saw how dedicated Devki is in winning Arya's love but Arya was literally being an ass towards her. 

Cast: 4.9/ 5.0 The cast was great - everyone including the attackers! 

Will I watch it again: Yes, and this time I wanna bring my crier-friends to watch it with me!

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.

  8. Rawlins, Ruby dah tengok semalam. Sebab top 10 netflix. Hehehe. Cerita bollywood sekarang sinematografi dia hebat kan. Seimbang lah dengan jalan cerita. Cuma watak anak tiri dia tak dengar cakap dan trauma tu buat ruby menyampahhhhh. Dah la degil. Mak tiri tu punya risau pasal dia. Memang kau kau revenge sampai ganggu kerja polis. Haha. Last sekali tembak tiga das. Mampus pun penjahat tu. Fuhh satisfied!

  9. Ugh, I think this movie will make me furious over the injustice that so many rape victims have to go through. People discrediting them because they'd been drinking, wearing inappropriate attire, etc.

  14. Baru tahu ini filem terkahir mendiang Sri Devi. Hari tu baru jer tengok cerita lakonan dia yang bertajuk Vinglish. Bestt , lakonan dia dalam cerita tu buat kita semanagat untuk tidak putus asa dan teruskan belajar biarpun kita akan dipandang rendah oleh ahli keluarga sendiri.
