MOM is a revenge thriller which has been compared to actress Raveena Tandon's Maatr, which released earlier this year. Sridevi stars as Devki, Arya's (played by Pakistani actress Sajal Ali) step-mother and former biology teacher, who yearns for her love. She fails miserably as befriending Arya, who cannot accept Devki in any role in her life. In a horrific incident Arya is brutalized and after the law fails her, Devki vows to avenge her daughter's violators.

The film opened to fabulous reviews from film critics and movie-goers. Sridevi's celebrity friends were in awe of the actress' acting skill and the overall film. In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee said: "MOM wields a heavy mallet, but it does so with purpose, precision and panache."
MOM is directed by Ravi Udyawar and also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Akshaye Khanna and Adnan Siddiqui.
