Sridevi, Nawazuddin & Akshaye Khanna Are All Set To Put You On The Edge Of Your Seat With ‘Mom’

Sridevi’s comeback film English Vinglish did phenomenally well at the box office. In fact, the audience was so taken with the film that they have been eagerly waiting to see Sridevi on the silver screen on a regular basis.


Well, she is soon hitting the big screen with yet another masterpiece called Mom. Unlike her last film, which was a light-hearted yet entertaining drama, this film is a dark thriller. While she carried English Vinglish on her own shoulders, Mom also stars some amazing actors like Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.


The intriguing 66-second long teaser keeps you on the edge of your seat and reveals a very interesting plot. It almost has a paranormal touch to it. With a dark background and some thumping music, Mom promises to be a roller coaster ride.

Just before the end of the teaser, Sridevi asks a very interesting question – Galat aur bohot galat mein se chun na ho, toh aap kya chunenge?

Akshaye Khanna can be seen in two-three frames but it’s difficult to decipher his role in the film. However, watch out for Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing a bald old guy. His unrecognisable avatar will definitely pique your interest.

Without further ado, here’s the teaser:

Mom will hit the silver screens on July 14.


MOM teaser: Sridevi’s film impresses audience in Pakistan, and there is a reason. Watch video

Sridevi’s MOM teaser promises a nail-biting thriller. Sridevi’s MOM teaser promises a nail-biting thriller.

MOM motion poster had a monologue of Nawazuddin Siddiqui telling us how a mother’s love is selfless and doesn’t change with time. If that had left you intrigued, then you must watch the film’s teaser, which we can bet will leave your curiosity soaring, seeking answers to so many questions. Ever since MOM’s teaser has released, it has received over 1.2 million views and 10,499 likes on YouTube in 24 hours. The video has received over 900 comments, most of which have apparently come from the Pakistani audience. If you are wondering why, then we must tell you that the girl who plays the daughter of Sridevi is a famous Pakistani actor named Sajal Ali. In fact, Pakistan’s famous actor Adnan Siddiqui is also seen in a pivotal role in MOM.

In the teaser, Sridevi is in search for something that lands her in danger. But what is it? Is she searching for her lost daughter? A particular scene and feel of the teaser also reminds us of Sujoy Ghosh’s directorial Kahaani, which starred Vidya Balan. However, the motive of search in both the films is different.

While you keep guessing the reason behind the thrilling story of Sridevi, it is Nawazuddin Siddiqui who might be missed. Why? Because of the actor’s brilliant disguise. Nawaz is known for getting into the skin of his characters. This time, he has got into the look of his part way too deeply. Using prosthetics, the actor is playing an old-age man in the film, who is running away from something. Now, he could be running away from Sridevi or running away from being caught.

Watch MOM teaser here:

In the one minute teaser, you also catch a glimpse of Akshaye Khanna. The actor made a comeback while playing a negative character in 2016 film Dishoom after a hiatus of four years. In MOM, Akshaye too seems to be discovering his own journey. So, are these characters related to each other? The video ends with a monologue of Sridevi where she asks the audience a question – “What will you chose between wrong and very wrong?”

MOM has been produced by Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor and is directed by Ravi Udyawar. The poster of MOM bore stark resemblance with that of Raveena Tandon’s Maatr. The two had quite a similar treatment. However, Raveena made it clear that both the films deal with different issues.

MOM will hit the screens on July 14.

Anti-Romeo squad row: Prashant Bhushan calls Lord Krishna ‘legendary eve teaser’, draws flak

Lawyer-Activict Prashant Bhushan Lawyer-Activict Prashant Bhushan

Prominent lawyer-activist Prashant Bhushan on Sunday stirred a controversy on social media after describing Lord Krishna as a “legendary eve-teaser” while weighing in on the Uttar Pradesh government’s Anti-Romeo squads, which were introduced to curb instances of harassment of girls and eve-teasing. His comments came in light of the recent video footages which showcased innocent men being subjected to harsh treatment allegedly in presence of the state forces, instead of cracking down on those who actually stalk and molest women. Incidents of men being forced to squat and even to tonsure their heads have been shown in the cell phone videos.

The Swaraj Abhiyan co-founder also dared newly-appointed Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath whether he would have the guts to label his self-appointed teams as Anti-Krishna squads. “Romeo loved just one lady,while Krishna was a legendary Eve teaser.Would Adityanath have the guts to call his vigilantes AntiKrishna squads?,” Bhushan wrote on Twitter.

His tweet set off a storm on the social media with religious groups demanding an apology and some even saying they would take the activist to court for allegedly insulting the deity. Meanwhile, BJP Delhi spokesperson Tajinder Bagga has registered a police complaint against Bhushan for ‘insulting and outraging the religious sentiments of Hindus’.

Clarifying his position, Bhushan said his stand was being ‘distorted’. “My position is: By the logic of Romeo Brigade, even Lord Krishna would look like eve teaser,” he tweeted. Insisting that he didn’t intend to hurt religious sentiments, the activist said, “We have grown up with legends of young Krishna teasing Gopis. The logic of Romeo squad would criminalise this. Didnt intend to hunt sentiments.”
