The Village Life Of Mother India

Rural life in India isn’t always about crops and storms – it’s also about the struggles which wretched poverty brings

Mother India is one of the greatest Bollywood films ever made. Although, the movie is controversial (in the most unforgiving of manners) because of the approach it took to the fictionalization of the struggles involved in the daily lives of the poor in India, despite the fact that India had desired for independence from colonial rule, Mother India should still be considered important for its evocative portrayal of life in the villages of India. That is what makes the film so magnificent: a woman’s plight with a loan, a son who wants to murder the man who had lent his family some money and the family saga of a mother involving her sons, are few of the reasons why the film is bittersweet and thought-provoking.
