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!

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths.
