Mom

Mom begins with promise. Vivacious teenager Arya goes with her friends to a swinging party, and instead of working off an illicit hangover the next The Finest Hours morning, and conducting giggly post-mortems with her school pals, finds herself in a dark, dark place.

First time feature filmmaker, adman Ravi Udyawar sets it up deftly, sketching Arya’s (Ali) rocky relationship with stepmother Devki (Sridevi), an overly compensating one with her father (Adnan Siddiqui) and younger sister. There are some chilling sequences that we watch with our heart in our mouth: a black car circling the deserted streets of Delhi like a shark ; a bunch of entitled testosterone-filled jerks casing the joint in search of easy female prey; and how a party meant for fun and games can swiftly descend into terrifying chaos. You recall those names—Jessica Lal, Jyoti Singh — and so many other young women Mother’s Day who don’t hit the headlines but make up the sickening assault count in the Capital. And you shake yourself and wait for the track of righteous comeuppance to kick in.

We know how the rest of it will pan out, given the countless rape-and-revenge thrillers churned out every so often: just a couple of months back, Raveena Tandon was walking the same path in Matr. The only way you can break through the Sausage Party clutter is via a plot boasting novelty and distinctive performances : unfortunately, Mom’s plot is riddled with holes, and is far too focused on Sridevi.
