A new web series called Mothers & Daughters, starring Lilette and Ira Dubey promises to be warm, interesting and complicated – just like our relationships with our moms!
Ma, mummy, amma, ammi, aayi, mom…these are some of the words in which we call our mothers. Each word generating a sense of warmth and protection, perhaps a cocoon of unconditional love in most of our minds. And yet, it is undeniable that we daughters have such a gloriously messy and complicated relationships with our mothers as we grow up.
For example, I used to love my mother for being so supportive about my education and yet I couldn’t stand her strictness when it came to dressing up or being friends with boys. The relationship is never monochromatic and I think you too will have such mixed emotions tucked into the corners of your minds when you think about your relationship with dear old mom.
Hence, the moment I came across this upcoming short film web series by Blush and Chhoti Productions called ‘Mothers & Daughters’, I knew I had to share it with you all. I’m sure you too will be bubbling with excitement to watch this series, as soon as you watch the making of it.
What I found interesting about the concept was how the actors and the makers kept underlining the message that they wanted to explore the different facets of this beautiful relationship, not only the superficial ones mostly portrayed by media, but also the deeper aspects.
I have always been fascinated by this relationship. Being raised by a single mother, Ma has been the biggest source of strength and inspiration in my life. I have witnessed how our relationship has changed over the years and how different aspects of my life has been shaped by my relationship with my mother.
I’m sure that a lot you will identify with this feeling. If you do, then please don’t miss this one!
