Mother’s Day special: Times when Bollywood gave us strongest moms
Tisca Chopra in 'Taare Zameen Par'
'Taare Zameen Par' was a very sensitive and meaningful film which marked the debut of actor Aamir Khan as a director. Though Darsheel Safary's character stole the show, actress Tisca Chopra's character of Maya Awasthi aka Maa of Ishaan also connected instantly with the audience. A mother-son's relationship is beautifully expressed in the song 'Maa'. The visuals and the way Tisca Chopra and Darsheel Safary have acted in it is enough to make everyone go sentimental. Tisca Chopra's performance was brilliant and perfectly carried the realistic touch of a mother making it an unforgettable one for sure.
Vidya Balan in 'Paa'
Vidya Balan's character of a mature and a single-mother is nothing short of a phenomenal portrayal of a woman in the film 'Paa'. Her performance which carries the love, concern and understanding of a mother is simply wonderful. The way she accepts that her son is suffering from progeria disease yet again proves the acting mettle of Vidya Balan who turned this character of a mother into a strong and unforgettable one. Rightfully, she received many Best Actress awards for her brilliant performance.
Sridevi in 'English Vinglish'
A perfect comeback of veteran actress Sridevi on the big screen after a gap of nearly fifteen years. Sridevi's character of Shashi Godbole is about a woman who decides to show and prove her husband and daughter that she’s better than they think and that she shouldn't be taken for granted. A warm-hearted and an endearing tale of a woman learning English, Sridevi's portrayal of a caring and sensitive mother onscreen was nothing less than a perfect homage to every woman, especially a mother.
Supriya Pathak Kapur in 'Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela'
Supriya Pathak's character Dhankor Sanera aka Baa of Leela (played by Deepika Padukone) is certainly one of the most powerful portrayal of a mother onscreen. Her character was the one who everyone feared in the film including her children at some point of time. But, at heart, she only wants best for her kids. Baa's love for her children is quite evident in the climax when she has a change of heart and accepts the love of Ram and Leela. But still, both of them die in the end before they could get to know about this. Supriya Pathak had delivered an outstanding performance which even won her the prestigious Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress for the film.
Shabana Azmi in 'Neerja'
Yet another phenomenal portrayal of a mother that leaves you teary-eyed. Shabana Azmi's performance as Rama Bhanot (mother of Neerja) is so compassionate that you can feel the pain and loss through her character. Knowing that your child is in danger is the worst feeling a mother can go through and Shabana Azmi, through her brilliant performance managed to emote the pain flawlessly. Definitely, this performance had to be in this list.
Swara Bhaskar in 'Nil Battey Sannata'
Swara Bhaskar's character of Chanda Sahay has big dreams for her daughter Apu and toils daily as a housemaid and does odd jobs for her better future. The actress is very impressive and her body language is perfect all throughout the film. There are some emotional scenes which are bound to turn your eyes wet due to its brilliant scripting and an endearing act by Swara and child actress Ria Shukla. 'Nil Battey Sannata' is a heart-warming and feel-good film which surely connects and makes you know about the love a mother has for her children.
