MOM MOVIE STILLS
With so much going for it, MOM has also critics and influencers rooting for it, with several of them showering praise on the film and it's fine performances.
Says Vishal Verma, “Sridevi as Devki in this relevant, hard – hitting and moving thriller is a proof why she is a diva, a topper in the institute of versatility. We all wondered what she will do next after the marvelous comeback with ENGLISH VINGLISH after a fifteen year old hiatus. Joy, aghast, shock, grief, anger, pain she elegantly swims along the sea of emotions with such a rare expertise that is now unbeatable for today's actresses. From a child wonder to the Queen of the box office during the nineties, Sridevi is in top form in MOM and delivers a knock out performance that is entitled to top awards this year.
Says Taran Adarsh, ' One word to describe the film -Superb. What works: Relevant theme, taut screenwriting, effective background score and skilled direction.'
Says Jitesh Pillai, 'If acting is magic without props, then Sridevi had mastered the art. Not a single false note in MOM. Mom once again shows why she ruled the marquee for several years'
Says Meena Iyer, 'In her 300th landmark movie Sri demonstrates why she is the high-priestess of desi cinema.Nawazuddin, with his quirks and one-liners, turns in a class act and Akshaye Khanna, who is in terrific form here, forces you to ponder why he takes such long matinee breaks.'
Says Subhash K Jha, 'Debutant director Ravi Udyawar weaves an exceedingly impressive saga of vendetta that leaves us disturbingly satisfied.'
Says Kunal Guha, 'A dialogue in the film explains that God isn't omnipresent, and hence he created mothers. But the mother in this film is prepared to battle with Beelzebub, if he were to niggle with her offspring.'
On a high note says Bhawana Somaaya, 'You cry with Sridevi when she breaks down, outraged when she's let down by judiciary, and fearful when she dives into the devil’s den. Book MOM'
