Talking about the storyline, Mom revolves around Devika (Sridevi), who is a loving wife, and a mother of two beautiful daughters, she seemingly has a perfect happy family. Yet, somehow the true happiness of being a mother eludes her. Arya (Sajal Ali), a sensitive girl cannot accept Devki and her love wholeheartedly. Arya believes, a daughter comes into a mother’s life, but a mother does not enter the life of a daughter. Devki patiently waits for Arya’s love and acceptance as she believes only a mother can truly understand the silence of her child. An unfortunate incident further distances Arya and Devki, to a point of no return. In such a situation a mother has to make a choice not between what is wrong or right but between what is wrong and very wrong.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui appears in a never seen before andaaz. His look coupled with a peculiar dialogue delivery gives his character an extra edge.
Mom also stars Akshaye Khanna, Adnan Siddiqui and Abhimanyu Singh.
Sridevi’s last outing on the big screen was Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish. The film was highly appreciated by both- critics and moviegoers and everyone loved Sridevi in the film, which just means that fans are eagerly waiting to see her yet again on the big screen with Mom.
Directed by Ravi Udyawar, the film boasts stellar music by AR Rahman.
