The movie, based on a true tale, follows Indian immigrant Debika Chatterjee (Rani Mukherjee) as she battles for custody of her kids when the Norwegian childcare services give them to foster parents. She is found unfit to raise them.

The first part of her loud battle for justice is cluttered with more noise and less sadness. Yet, in the second half, when the silence gives you more time to ponder and feel, she nails the tone of her character. Rani gradually transforms into Sagarika Chakraborty (The Indian mother on which the movie is based on) and becomes powerful once she allows her eyes to speak for herself.


The film is inspired by the story of Sagarika Chakraborty, an Indian woman whose children were taken away by the Norwegian government. Sagarika made headlines in 2012 as she fought against the Norwegian authorities to regain custody of her children.

The filmmaker could have shaped her into a much more complex character than the one we get if she had access to a capable performer like Rani Mukerji. The actress overacts and acts theatrically when she might be natural on camera.

Going on to the film adaptation, Debika is a young Bengali housewife who is dealing with parenthood and her life in Norway. She desires to preserve and display her Indian heritage while her spouse adjusts to the Norwegian language and customs. Expect the lead actress in cold Norway to wear stunning Kolkata cotton saris over trench coats, with regular mid-conversation slips into Bengali.

She attracts the attention of several dishonest childcare workers in Norway because she refuses to adopt the Norwegian way of life and refuses to let go of her Indian manners. It is co-written by Ashima, Rahul Handa, and Sameer Satija. To demonstrate their villainous nature, the wicked guys never stop making evil expressions.

Rating – Three points five out of five stars.

Jim Sarbh offers the movie its most inspiring and best moments. His understated performance as an Indian-origin lawyer in Norway nails the essence of this movie. As Daniel, a character played by Sarbh confronts the idea that adopted parents can’t be as devoted and thoughtful as biological parents, it makes you stop and ponder. You wished there had been more of him and his arguments before the pretty simple climax. So rating of Three points five out of five stars.

All of these elements are included in this ranking. The music of Amit Trivedi captures the spirit of a brave mother. “Shubho Shubho” makes you feel things deeply. Ashima Chibber directed the movie. Nikkhil Advani, Monisha Advani, and Madhu G. Bhojwani are the producers. Critical parts were played by Rani Mukerji, Anirban Bhattacharya, Jim Sarbh, and Neena Gupta. It was made available on March 17. It will formally become accessible on the OTT platform after some time.
