"Mom", from the author and screenwriter Girish Kohli, is a Hindi film subtly made with nuanced lightings of shades by Ravi Udyawar, his first cinematographic achievement, but why Mom? While the first subject is rape, worse, a rape gang committed on an 18-year-old girl by four young men. The victim, Arya, exceptionally incarnated by the Pakistani actress: Sajal Ali who is actually 23 years old shines "black" on the screen. Her character undoubtedly puts them on the accused bench unfortunately of a lax and partial justice . Therefore, for this heavy and irreparable tribe caused to her daughter-in-law, Arya, "Mom" - Devki, played excellently by Sridevi (300 films in all until now !), will make herself a justiciary for love for her who nevertheless excecures her to its paroxysm. An ordinary professor of biology (Sridevi) will implement her thirst for justice without intending to kill or almost? A consciousness that she tries to awaken to the rapists with regard to what a mother is capable when someone calls "Mom" for help ... Her co-stars: Sajal Ali, Akshaye Khanna, Adnan Siddiqui and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are each in their key role, incredible with a touching psychological personality for the viewer. The important thing in this film is not really how Devki (Sridevi) takes revenge on this "unfair justice" by foiling, in addition, the police investigation. Confident, She benefits the help and human understanding from the people around her. She first turns to the hijras community (the third sex) who are their students, among ohers, then Detective DK (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), compassionate and revolted by the verdicts of rape in India, and finally Matthew Francis (Akshaye Khanna), anchored in his faith, in the film, he signs himself ...Matthew understands how to release the evils and heal the indelible wounds even if Devki loses faith and deferred to her mother's instinct while her husband, Anand (Adnan Siddiqui), keeps it in adversity. Ravi Udyawar makes our imagination work in raw scenes such as rape, the prison environment or a painting by Draupadi such as the epic of the violent and deadly Mahabharata. Nothing spares us, like the enchanting and spicy music of Allah Rakha Rahman melodically black in this particular context. A must see! For an informed public, for all the political, educational and police institutions of India or not, before being ourselves confronted with an ultimatum: to choose between the bad and the worst by listening to what our conscience dictates to us in the absence of a transparent justice . I congratulate in passing the audacity of Boney Kapoor for having produced this film with Zee Studios. It should be noted that Boney Kapoor had produced the excellent film about a controversial subject: "Matrubhoomi: A Nation Without Women" by Manish Jha in 2003.
