Mom is shot in Delhi hence it reminds us the brutal 2012 gang rape called Nirbhaya. A 23 year old physiotherapy student was kidnapped on the chilling night of December 16; she was later found to be gang-raped and brutally murdered with rude weapons.
The Delhi, once called “Rape Capital” by former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, becomes live in the movie. As darkness sets in, its roads wear a haunted look and the streets become unknown for women. Where Maatr failed, Mom will be able to narrate story of lakhs of women living in Delhi.
Similarity with Nirbhaya
It is the story of a mom of two daughters. A teacher by profession, Sri Devi teaches her daughters in home and also at school. She keeps a close eye over her elder daughter Arya, who’s a teenager. One day, Arya was physically assaulted and kidnapped by a local goon. The emotional trauma Sri Devi goes through when her teenage daughter is kidnapped in Delhi reminds us the trauma of the mother of Nirbhaya.
