Maja Ma Movie Review: Story

The story begins with NRI Tejas (Ritwik Bhowmik) who looks quite busy as he prepares himself standing in front of the mirror to greet his girlfriend Esha’s (Barkha Singh) parents when he arrives for a lie detection test. NRI Esha’s parents Bob (Rajit Kapoor) and Pam (Sheeba Chaddha) who also stays in the USA will do a lie detection test to check whether Tejas is a fraud or not.

Yes, you read that one correctly though it sounds really surprising but wait as there are more surprises for you ahead. Tejas belongs to a middle-class family who loves his mother Pallavi (Madhuri Dixit) more than anyone else and he is a big fan of her dance. His father Manohar Patel (Gajraj Rao) is a little bit weak in English and his elder sister Tara Patel (Srishti Shrivastava) is an LGBTQ activist. 

Manohar Patel is unaware of Tara Patel’s activities and thinks the little girl who comes to their house to shoot various videos, will learn indecent conversations which won’t be good for him as he is the chairman of the society. Tejas also makes fun of Tara’s activities but their mother supports and encourages Tara.

Luckily Tejas passed the lie detection test, so Esha’s parents want to meet Tejas’ parents. And we saw some hilarious scenes after Esha’s parents arrived in India. The little girl who roams around their house shooting videos of various things passes a video to Viral(Kavin Dave) that contains a revelation of Pallavi’s sexual orientation. Viral was looking for chances to insult Manohar in front of everyone as he lost society’s chairman position to Manohar.

The rest of the story revolves around that secret only. How everyone around Pallavi will behave after knowing her truth? Will Tejas marry Esha? What will be Esha’s parents’ reaction to this?

Performances & Analysis

Maja Ma stands out due to the storyline and solid performances of almost everyone. But it suffers due to the poor execution and cliché dialogues. Director Anand Tiwari certainly did not live up to the expectations if we compare it with his mind-blowing web series Bandish Bandits and movie Love per Square Foot. 

Madhuri Dixit looks in good touch this year as she returned after 3 years. Her performance in The Fame Game was also appreciated by audiences and in Maja Ma too she stunned everyone with her performance. 

Though Simone Singh’s screen presence was not great she managed to impress with her performance. She delivers exactly what was needed from her at the crucial moments in the film. 

Ritwik Bhowmik and Barkha Singh also looked convincing but their on-screen chemistry could have been much better. Gajraj Rao’s comic timings were excellent and he was just perfect as Tejas and Tara’s father. Srishti Shrivastava did a fantastic job as an LGBTQ activist. Rajit Kapoor and Sheeba Chaddha’s accents as NRI were not at all convincing.  

Final Words

Maja Ma brings to us how a middle-aged housewife from a middle-class family deals with her family as well as society about her sexual orientation. Though director Anand Tiwari’s execution on such a sensitive topic did not go well, Madhuri Dixit and Simone Singh’s spectacular performances are enough to keep you engaged throughout the movie.
