Director Ravi Udyawar's Bollywood film Mom starring Sridevi, Akshaye Khanna, Abhimanyu Singh, Sajal Ali, Adnan Siddiqui and Nawazuddin Siddiqui has received positive reviews from the audience.
Mom is a thriller and is the 300th film of yesteryear actress Sridevi. Along with Girish Kohli, Ravi Udyawar has written the script for the movie, which is produced by Boney Kapoor, Sunil Manchanda, Mukesh Talreja, Naresh Agarwal and Gautam Jain. AR Rahman has composed the music for the movie.
Devki (Sridevi) is a school teacher and step-mother of Arya (Sajal Ali). Once, she punishes a student named Mohit for sending a lewd message to her daughter Arya, who also studies in the same class. Mohit rapes Arya on Valentine's day and dumps her in a gutter. Since Mohit belongs to a powerful family, Devki fails to get justice. How she gets justice for her daughter forms the crux of the story.
Ravi Udyawar has created an interesting story with an engaging screenplay and etched out characterisation for Mom. His direction is the main highlight of the film. Sridevi has delivered a brilliant performance, which is another attraction of the film. Akshaye Khanna, Abhimanyu Singh, Sajal Ali, Adnan Siddiqui and Nawazuddin Siddiqui have done justice to their roles, say the audiences.
Mom has rich production values and AR Rahman's background score, Anay Goswamy's picturisation, Monisha R Baldawa's editing and dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, say the film goers. We bring you some viewers' verdict on the film shared on Twitter. Here are the live updates of Mom movie review by the audience:

#Mom is terrific. It's relevant, keeps you at the edge of your seat and pulls the emotional chords too. @raviudyawar, take a bow! #Mom once again proves why @SrideviBKapoor is one of the finest actors of all time. What a towering act by her! Bigger fan of @Nawazuddin_S after #Mom. No one can touch his versatility. And #AkshayeKhanna should definitely do more films.

Thrilled to watch @SrideviBKapoor's #mom, those teasers and trailers meant serious business.
Scintillating performances, tight screen play, superb cinematography and lovely Direction..@MomTheMovie is a Must watch!! @SrideviBKapoor ma'm you're amazing!! Your performances keep inspiring us to work harder!!@MomTheMovie is just one example..
#Mom First half is disturbing but brilliant. Background music gives one those goosebumps. 2nd half predictable. Nawaz is underutilized.
#Mom**** is a gripping taut tale of emotions, thrill, drama entertainment & @SrideviBKapoor 's measured act. Fantastic @Nawazuddin_S #superb
Tangle the Talk @silvykalra
#Mom boasts of powerful performances by #sridevi, Nawazuddin and Akshaye, but lacks thrill and reasoning.
