People have begun to appreciate content other than masala-packed action and drama. Today’s audience enjoys quality films with depth and substance, films that entertain while also provoking thoughts. Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway, directed by Ashima Chibber, is one such cinematic masterpiece that will be released this Friday. The trailer has already struck a chord and made the film the talk of the town due to Rani Mukerji’s fantastic performance and the heartfelt drama in the storyline. If the trailer hasn’t piqued your interest already, here are 6 reasons why this should be in you watchlist:
- Rani as Mrs Chatterjee touches your soul
Rani Mukherji has proven to be a highly versatile artist with performances in films such as Mardaani, Aiyya, Hichki, and many others under her belt in the recent past. She took a year off after Bunty Aur Babli 2 (2021) and is now set to return to the big screen in a highly intense role as Debika Chatterjee, a mother of two who is fighting for the custody of her kids in a foreign land. The trailer has given us a taste of what’s to come and the audience is buzzing with excitement.
- It’s a true story
Mrs. Chatterjee vs. Norway is based on Sagarika Chakraborty’s fight against Norway’s childcare system, which shook the entire nation. Her plight and injustice, as well as the cultural intolerance she faced, compelled India’s Foreign Ministry to join her in the custody battle. The film depicts how she fought not only for her children, but also for her ethnicity and the integrity of her country. When Rani said, “Nahi, yeh Desh ka matter hain. Inko lagta hain ki hamara bhikari desh hain with no culture”, we all felt it.
- One of the best Female centric movies
Bollywood is no longer all about heroes, and actresses have moved on from being abla naaris to being women of substance and strength, who stand up for their rights and speak out against injustice. There has been a wave of really successful and interesting women-centric films with ambitious and strong female leads. Mrs. Chatterjee Vs. Norway is unquestionably one of those masterpieces that leaves an ever-lasting impression with its strong plot and powerful performance by Rani Mukerji.
- SHEin direction
Female filmmakers and screenwriters are becoming more prominent as they continue to put forward women-centric stories with socially relevant films that are a mirror of society by doing some notable work and making their name in a male-dominated industry. Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway, directed by Ashima Chibber, is one such film with a strong and complex female lead. Ashima has outdone herself with her writing and direction, displaying a mother’s gentle and loving side as well as her fierceness and focus when fighting for her children in this film.
- Supporting cast creates an impact too
No role is too big or too small! It’s all about the actor’s passion for cinema and his or her ability to captivate audiences during their screen presence. The supporting cast of this film has proven this with their outstanding performances. From an experienced actor like Neena Gupta to more contemporary actors like Jim Sarbh, Anirban Bhattacharya, and Balaji Gauri, all have brought their characters to life.
- Highlights strong topics
The movie centers on motherhood and its challenges. It demonstrates how society’s perception of the ideal mother varies by region and can sometimes cause problems due to cultural differences in today’s world of widespread immigration. It also sheds light on Norway’s lack of consideration and intolerance for cultural differences. The movie also sheds light on how some foreigners continue to regard India as a third-world country based on what little they see in the media.
