Madhuri Dixit’s Maja Ma is out on Amazon Prime Video. It is a story of a woman named Pallavi Patel, who belongs to a middle-class family but is well-known for her dancing and culinary skills. However, in an unusual twist, a rumor starts doing the rounds– and is potent enough to destroy her family. What’s more, everything occurs on the day of her son’s engagement.
Directed by Anand Tiwari, the cast includes names like Gajraj Rao, Barkha Singh, Malhar Thakar, Sheeba Chaddha, and Ritwik Bhowmick.
Fans of Dixit have already started watching the film and here is what people are saying about it:
A few days ago, filmmaker Karan Johar took to social media to heap praises on the team. He said, “A brave, poignant and to add an audience pleaser… this dramedy hits the spot with its relentless storytelling… oscillating between emotion and humor… you walk out with a feeling of sunshine… mainly because of the luminous and stunning Madhuri Dixit, who plays Pallavi with so much integrity and poise… she is just a pleasure to watch in every frame. Kudos to the entire cast… Gajraj, Ritwick, Barkha, Shrishti, Simone… all performances are on point and top-notch! I am obsessed with Sheeba and Rajit, who play BOB and PAM with sheer genius! They are howlarious (hilarious)! I want a spin-off please!!! Congratulations to Anand Tiwari for directing a challenging narrative with such ease and craft… to team Prime Video for their first smashing original! Watch this gem and you will have a ‘Maja Ma (fun)’ time…”
In an interview, Rao said that working with Dixit was an experience he’d cherish for a lifetime. “My heart skipped a beat. It was like a dream come true to play a significant role opposite the legend of Madhuri Dixit. The shoot was being planned during Covid. I was scared and didn’t know whether I would be able to go for the shoot or not. But working with her is so important so I said, ‘Bhaad mein jaaye Covid. Jokes apart, we took all the precautions while shooting. Amazon Prime Video had their safety protocols,” he said, further adding, “Main mugdh tha! It was unbelievable for a moment that I was sharing screen space with Madhuri Dixit and she would be saying dialogues with me. I had never thought of it. A lot of credit goes to her for being so down to earth despite being such a successful actress.”
