New Delhi: The trailer of Madhuri Dixit’s film ‘Maja Ma’ was released today. Directed by Anand Tiwari and written by Sumit Batheja, Maja Ma is the first Indian Amazon Original movie.
A true-blue Bollywood entertainer, MajaMa is set against the celebratory backdrop of a traditional festival and a lively, colourful wedding, with a story that will tug at your heartstrings. The trailer gives a glimpse into the life of Pallavi (essayed by Madhuri Dixit) – a delightful woman who is the backbone of her middle-class family and the society she lives in, around whom the movie revolves. As a series of events unfold, a life that she has built with so much love starts to fall apart, putting her son’s upcoming engagement in jeopardy. The conflict tests existing relationships for resilience, understanding, and beliefs. What is this unprecedented situation? How will Pallavi and her family deal with the turmoil? Will this bring the families closer or will the new relationships crumble? The answers to all these questions will be revealed on October 6 when the film will premiere on Prime Video.
Talking about her character in the film, Madhuri said she has never done such a role before. “With Maja Ma, what I am most excited about is my character. It is a role with complex nuances that I have never played before. Pallavi Patel carries enormous responsibility around – as a mother, as a wife, and as a contributing member of society with such ease and grace, that it becomes easy to overlook her strength, conviction, and resilience. She goes through a multitude of emotions that could have strong repercussions on her life and the lives of people she loves,” she said.
She further added, “I am so excited to share this film with my fans and audiences. Working with the cast and crew of the film has been a lovely experience. I am thrilled that Prime Video is taking Maja Ma to audiences worldwide. This piece of our heart, our hard work, will find love with audiences looking for heartfelt storytelling everywhere in the world.”
Gajraj Rao, who will be playing Madhuri’s husband in the film, said, “You will see me play a middle-class man, a father to young adults and husband to a loving wife, in ‘Maja Ma’. However, as you watch the movie, the character traverses through some interesting, sometimes challenging, not to mention unexpected situations in his life. Working with the whole team – Madhuri Dixit, all cast members, and the creators – was a great experience. I am quite sure the audiences will love the movie.”
The film also stars Ritwik Bhowmik, Barkha Singh, Srishti Shrivastava, Rajit Kapur, Simone Singh, Sheeba Chaddha, MalharThakar, and Ninad Kamat, in pivotal roles.
