Mothers Day Special

This post was winner of Blogadda Mothers Day Contest.



'Maa' used to be a constant fixture in Hindi movies in the 80's and 90's. A stoic and sacrificing figure, wearing a white sari and always a picture of love and devotion. A mother who was always bent over a sewing machine or working at a construction site. A mother who never forgot to make 'gajar ka halwa' and 'kheer' for her son. When talking of celluloid mothers how can we forget Nirupa Roy in the movie 'Deewar'. Hindi Cinema established once and for all...if you have 'Maa' then you don't need Gadi, Bangla or Paisa. 

Here is tribute to 'MAA' on this mothers day.


























And thus the story continues....

P.S: If you observe, all the 'Maa''s in Hindi movies doted on their sons...the celluloid daughters always got this..




Happy Mothers day !!!

  4. think Nirupa Roy would be the most type cast actor after the guy i don't remember his name who always played police inspector......

    good compilation ........ i think we can add Reema Lagoo to the "Always Mother" list..... :)

  5. Outrageously funny. And true the mothers in hindi cinema completely ignored the daughters. On top of that they got the worst mothers-in law. So they had nobody except god." jiske paas maa nahin uske paas bhagwan hain"

  11. Shilpa: Thanks :)

    Savvy: haan poori filmi hai :)

    Nish: Totally...

    Rosebelle: sorry dear...the woman in the pictures always portrayed a mothers character in Bollywood movies. She was always the helpless and the poor mother....and the dialogues are all from Hindi movies which have become well known over the years :)

    Karan: Those are some mighty powerful 'maa' dialogues. Thanks :)

    Hitesh: You are talking about Iftekaar, he used to always play the inspectors role...
    Hmm no one can beat Nirupa though...

  21. I love this!! Our movies do a lot of damage by creating such stereotypes. I have written two posts called 'Can an Indian daughter say, "Mere paas maa hai"?' :|

    For some reason I used to find Nirupa Roy scary in my childhood days and a little khadoos too!
