He wrote, ‘What a tremendous effort by the entire team of Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway. Meri Rani shines in the central role as only a queen can. Director Ashima portrays a human struggle with such sensitivity. Jim, @AnirbanSpeaketh, #Namit, #SaumyaMukherjee, #BalajiGauri all shine. Must see.
Veteran actress Rekha, who recently watched the film, also could not stop praising it. She said in a statement, ‘Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway was exhilarating and heart wrenching, I was on the edge of my seat from the very beginning. It was an absolute joy to watch this dynamic performance of a mother fighting for her life for her children. This film is for the world to see what ‘Mother India’ is! This time Rani has outdone herself in the role of the Eternal Mother… Portraying all the faces of Durga Maa… The ultimate ‘Maa’, an intense performance worth watching umpteen times! She passes through the fire, straight into our hearts! What a delight to watch actor and character melt into each other! I would also like to congratulate the entire cast and crew, especially the director, who were on point and beyond! Special mention to Jim Sarbh for his flawless and restrained performance! Extremely grateful and proud to watch this brave film, which reinforces the fact that nothing is more powerful than the ‘power of a mother’!’
The film is an adaptation of the true story of an Indian couple, based on the mother – Sagarika Chakraborty’s autobiography titled ‘The Journey of a Mother’, whose children were taken from them by the Norwegian childcare system (Barnvernet) in 2011.
