The teaser begins with Madhuri dancing all alone in a colorful room. Then we are introduced to her son, played by Ritwik Bhowmick, and his girlfriend, played by Barkha Singh. The two are planning to get married, but the parents may not be 100 percent on board. Madhuri even asks Ritwik if Barkha’s parents are happy with the match. When he says they actually are, Madhuri shocks him by saying she may not approve of the match. A bit of Crazy Rich Asians monster-in-law vibes, huh?
Directed by Anand Tiwari and written by Sumit Batheja, Maja Ma is touted as “a family entertainer set against the celebratory backdrop of a traditional festival and typically colorful Indian wedding”.
Gajraj Rao, Ritwik Bhowmik, Barkha Singh, Srishti Shrivastava, Rajit Kapur, Sheeba Chaddha, Simone Singh, Malhar Thakar and Ninad Kamat are also part of Maja Ma.
“I firmly believe that audiences today are looking for content that is fresh, diverse and modernist, while still keeping the humble storytelling at its core. Audiences are open to new genres and new experiences, and Maja Ma does all that and more. Warm and funny, this light-hearted yet thought-provoking drama with unexpected twists,” says Anand Tiwari of his film.
“This beautiful story captures the hearts of viewers and makes them laugh at the same time. She features a highly eclectic cast that flawlessly and beautifully brings her characters to life. I’m happy that Maja Ma premieres on Prime Video. It’s really fulfilling to see Indian content reaching global audiences,” he added.
