Mrs. Chatterjee VS Norway - A Story with a Jamdani Twist

Mrs. Chatterjee VS Norway is a must watch movie for anyone living outside India. A movie that vividly depicts the pain and agony of a mother who has been forced to part away with her children. 

Being a mother of two daughters, and staying abroad for years now; the teaser of 'Mrs Chatterjee v/s Norway' had me in tears! It was years ago when I read about this in newspaper - and it had struck a cord - a cinematic portrayal was much needed!

Based on true events, the movie tells the story of an Indian mother, who fights with the government of Norway for the custody of her children. Rani packs a punch as a grieving mother who fights with a nation to get back the custody of her children. Her character is inspired by Sagarika Bhattacharya, the real-life mother who struggled.

Fans and industry celebs can't stop gushing over Rani's performance in the film after watching it and many of her friends took to social media and showered praises for her.

Director Ashima Chibber claims that she could have found no actor better than Rani for this role. She stated that because Rani is a mother herself, she could relate well to the plot and emotions. Over the course of the movie, the actor was able to portray Sagarika's three-year odyssey, during which she lived without her children for 610 days, from the time she arrived in Norway until she was forced to leave without her children.

Just not the movie what is worth applauding is the lovely portrayal of the dresses and drapes. it is so true to the core and roots of an authentic Bengali woman. Most of the times we can see Rani wearing dhakai jamdanis of amazing varities and that one "bong" look of her has won many hearts by now.
