Sridevi’s Mom has come in for high praise from the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC). The film has been granted a ‘UA’ with not a single visual or audio cut.

CBFC chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani describes Mom as a modern day Mother India. “Srideviji’s performance in Mom has the same impact as Nargisji in Mother India. They both define motherhood and the ingrained sacrifices that a mother makes for a child. I’d go as far as to say Mom is the contemporary Mother India. There will not be one dry eye in the theatres when the film opens.” The film which was viewed by the CBFC’s board members on Friday had the female members in tears. “It is probably Sridevi’s career’s best performance,” says a CBFC source.
