Storyline

Maya (Kajol) is based in Sydney, has been separated from her husband, Aman (Arjun Rampal), and lives with her school-going children: Aaliya, Ankush, and Anjali. Aman is in love with fashion designer, Shreya Arora (Kareena Kapoor), and plans to marry her soon. His attempts to introduce her to his family fall apart several times as his children and Maya dislike her, and have nicknamed her 'Daayan' (witch). Things change after Maya is diagnosed with cervical cancer, is told that she does not have very long to live, and undertakes to find a suitable step-mom for her children.

A Good Family Drama
12 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Its sometimes hard for children to know and how to deal with situations that one is not able to control. A divorcée, finds out that she is suffering from terminal cervical cancer and decides to ensure that her children are looked after by the woman who her ex husband has been seeing, which leads to a conflict between the two women.

A movie that carries a lot of emotions related to motherhood, starring Kajol, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, child artists Nominath Ginsberg, Aachal Munjal and Diyya Sonecha.

Kajol and Karan Johar, the producer of this movie, has roared with talent. Here, once again, she has shown why she is regarded as one of the best actresses in the Industry, even though, she looks pregnant and is pregnant. Kareena Kapoor, needed a good change from the roles the characters that she has been recently been perform and she has it in this. As the "other woman" she has done an excellent job, as has Arjun Rampal as the ex husband and father. Finally, the child artists – all have really performed well and in particular Divya Sonecha as the youngest, "Anjali" and Aachal Munjal as "Aleya," a teenager, who unable to accept what is happening around her.

Music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy, is good as always and in particular as certain Elvis Presley type song, "Rockn Roll" genre. There's no glitz and there's no glamour in any of the songs and one will be disappointed if they are expecting any.

This may be a copy of the 1998 movie "Stepmom," but the débutant director, Siddharth Malhotra, has handled the topic very well and manages to convey the emotions that are involved and especially where motherly emotions are concerned.

Though a tearjerker and one will need tissues with them, this is a good family drama and is worth watching. But if one is expecting glitz and glamour, then they will be disappointed.
