DIRECTION AND OTHER TECHNICAL ASPECTS: Direction by Ravi Udyawar is good, he has depicted the film very well. Music, Cinematography, and Editing is also good.
RATING: Because of the film’s good screenplay and direction, I’ll give it 3.5/4.
Watch or Not?: A must watch
The film’s music (A.R.Rahman) is decent, though the song towards the end was unnecessary. On the other hand, the film’s background score (A.R.Rahman, Qutub E Kripa) is very good and creates good tension in the narrative. It’s the background score, which elevates the films’ narrative by notches.
On the whole, MOM is a powerful film that reflects the horrors of the society that we live in today and how the world still remains unsafe for women. The film shocks and impacts you deep within. Watch it for it’s hard hitting content and Sridevi’s brilliant performance.
