Watch this FAMILY FIRST recommended movie – “Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway”. This movie raises questions on the Indian Parenting Style.
It is a heart-warming & yet a debatable movie that we highly recommend for families.
This movie should be watch by every parent, ruminated over and debated about. This film opens up a can of worms that as parents & a society we need to really mull over:
- Are Indian parents a set of unorganized people?
- Have they genetically ingrained the habit of keeping the fridge & kitchen dirty?
- Are they people who throw garbage with gay abandon?
- Are they inclined to lock horns with each other in front of their children?
- Are they at times forgetful about their child’s progress in school?
- Do they show their resentment & irritation towards their children at the drop of a hat?
- Are they people who are very particular about protecting their image in public?
On the other hand, are the Indian parents deeply bonded with their children?
- Do they tend to every need of the child?
- Why do they feed their children with ‘bare hands’ despite the western protocol of spoons & knives?
- Why do they allow their children to sleep between them in bed despite the ‘privacy norms’ of the western society?
The moot question of the entire movie is – are the procedures & processes too ingrained in our culture?
Is this the right way to bring up our children?
Do we provide our children with the right habits, nourishment & environment?
In my personal opinion, Indian parents have a lot of homework to do. We seem to be lost in the IPL, Rs. 2000 note & the election miasma. We should surface above it & make this movie a National debate.
Ultimately, don’t great families together make a great nation?
Another reason to recommend this movie to families is its ability to foster empathy & understanding. It sheds light on cultural differences & the importance of embracing diversity.
The movie is based on a true story of Ms. Sagarika Bhattacharya, who fought against the Norwegian Government in 2011 when her 2 kids were forcefully taken to a foster care without her consent.
Overall, it’s a remarkable film that leaves a lasting impact & offers an uplifting cinematic experience.
Kudos to all the actors & especially Rani Mukherjee who has played the protagonist, on delivering powerful performances.
Do watch & share your views on the movie.
