The trailer of Kajol’s new film Helicopter Eela was released recently. It seems to be an emotional journey of a single mother and her son.
India is a country where marital status defines the worthiness of a woman. She will be called ‘too ambitious’, if she prioritises her career over marriage and family. If in case a woman chooses to be a single mother, then the challenges she would face are innumerable.
With the recently released movie trailer of Helicopter Eela, starring Kajol and National Award Winning Actor Riddhi Sen as her son, Bollywood is all set to throw some light on the issues of single parenting in India.
Not many would have fitted well to be an over enthusiastic and highly energetic mother like Eela than Kajol herself. Her behavior and interaction with fellow college students in the trailer, celebrates the natural bubbly person that she is. And the equally disapproving, annoyed look by her son who is also a student from the same class at the same college assures the high level of drama that audience can expect from the film.
Also, Eela’s strength of character is equally impressive as she is daring enough and has the guts to go to college and complete her education with her son after 20 years.
The trailer itself has spoke a lot about one of the major problems that every mother-son relationship faces – its pampering to a dangerous extent and reaching heights of over protectiveness. Children are bound to get frustrated by their mothers’ excessive involvement and invasion of their personal space, as they grow up.
Apart from being a single mother, Eela is an aspiring singer. But eventually her son becomes the center of her universe. It’s the rediscovery of herself and learning to let her son be that forms the crux of the movie.
It’s great to see more movies like Helicopter Eela taking on such subjects – now, we’ll wait to watch if the movie does justice to the theme!

It’s sickening to watch habitual offenders like Sajid Khan crying on national television for being out of work for 4 years. Really, now Sajid’s playing the victim card?
Big Boss 16’s notorious host, Salman Khan and the Colors Channel has welcomed with open arms filmmaker and comedian Sajid Khan, who’s accused of sexual abuse by not one, two or three, but nine women to date, on the show.
Make no mistake, Sajid Khan’s participation is the digital equivalent of flashing his dick to the world, especially to his victims.
Saloni Chopra, film journalist, recalls her horrific hiring interview with Sajid, and much more, in this piece. Here’s a sample of completely unrelated questions that Sajid asked her.
Na Umra Ki Seema Ho, a love story where a young 21-year-old girl from a middle-class family, Viddhi, falls in love with the business tycoon, Dev Raichand. The only thing is that Dev is as old as her father’s age, and hence the justification of the title that love knows no boundaries.
Star Plus’s latest soap Na Umra Ki Seema Ho claims to be a love story where a young 21-year-old girl from a middle-class family, Viddhi, falls in love with the business tycoon of Indore, Dev Raichand. The only thing is that Dev is as old as her father’s age, and hence the justification of the title that love knows no boundaries.
This particular dynamic draws a lot of speculation — Will this be another saviour-damsel story? Will this actually address issues such as older men in positions of power taking advantage of or exploiting younger women?
The description of the show itself is questionable — a young girl falls in love with a business tycoon.
