Filmmaker Ashish Kakkad deserves applause solely for his courage to release the film at a time when even Bollywood films are being pushed back. Even though the Gujarati film industry seems to be crawling back to action, the release of Mission Mummy surely is the precursor. A story about a closely knit family, Mission Mummy, in very simple ways and sometimes even in very direct ways, tells you that generation gap exists.
Mission Mummy addresses a rather sensitive issue of how children go against all odds falling to peer pressure. And how the parents cope up with their increasing demands, their volatile behavior and still manage to give them as much love as possible. And the film manages to put it all across to the audience with simplicity and ease. The focus of the film is quite clear and direct and that’s all goes on in the film, for an elongated period of time. Even though the film is not long compared to other Gujarati films, the story it tells is too short to be told in a 2 hours film. It would make for a perfect short film.
Performances are overall good. So is music. Filmmaker Ashish Kakkad has chosen a good subject and an even better tagline – Bhasha Mari Gujarati Che – that will ring in the chords with the Gujarati audience. Though there is a lot of scope of improvement in dubbing and the background music in certain parts of the film.
Overall, the film is a good family watch. Even though the subject is familiar, it has its own moments where it is sure to stir your emotions.
