Depicting a true and lifelong journey of motherhood is always misinterpreted. So, I am thankful to ZEE5  to give a gist of motherhood into comedy-drama series, Mentalhood I have just watched the trailer and I can’t wait to watch the most relatable series which interprets a large chunk of my life.

Trailer Review of Mentalhood

The initial seconds of the Mentalhood trailer is completely relatable to the mundane life of any mother. From waking up the kids to packing their lunch to taking care of the household chores, is an everyday task for every mom in this world.

In the series, Karishma Kapoor as Miera is a small-town woman and a mother to three children. She aspires her kids to get admission into the same school as superstars of Bollywood. Beyond their schooling, Miera encourages her children to take up an audition for different brands and wants them to be as famous as ‘Taimur’.

Anuja Joshi’s character is played by Sandhya Mridul who claims that perfectly raised kids are no less than the biggest achievement of any mother’s life. Tillotama Shome plays the character of Preity in Mentalhood. She makes a statement that parenthood is solely dependent upon mothers.

Shruti Seth as Diksha who wants her children to be connected to nature. Namrata is a working mother who believes that mothers can be professionally successful and can take care of their children perfectly. Dino Morea plays the character of Aakash who is a stay-at-home father and considered himself as the mommy of his babies.

The latter half of the trailer turns an emotional turn and an exact representation of motherhood. Not just motherhood, they have highlighted the bits of zero-tolerance against a bully, molestation, child abuse and more. All in all, it is a rollercoaster ride of every mother where everything seems an easy thing to do from a distance, but when you are the mother in parenthood, then it will surely seem like a mental hood.

How Mentalhood series is the apt representation of Motherhood?

As a mother, I have been in a lot of difficult situations and no-one has ‘the right thing to do’ guide during their motherhood phase. Every mother has their own journey. They all learn from their mistakes and experience. Each experience is no less than a new lesson.

Different challenges faced by different mothers with their separate professions with just one motive and that is to be the best in their parenting and to shape their kids into a good human being.

Here are some of the points that are super relatable from the mother’s perspective:

  • The mundane chores of the mother and still they aren’t appreciated in society.
  • Pushing your kids to be the best version of themselves.
  • Guiding the difference between what’s good and bad to your children Understanding your child’s behaviour through their different life stages.
  • Balancing your profession and motherhood is a tedious task.
  • And last but not the least, the trailer ends with a line that says “Every day is madness in a mom’s life. It’s not motherhood, it’s a mental hood.”

Hats off to the director, Karishma Kohli to address the hard work of different mothers in raising their kids irrespective of their profession, gender or behaviour. She has depicted the story of motherhood from different angles by showcasing working mothers, stay-at-home parent and more. She has highlighted as well as answered the question of every husband, ‘Tum din bhar Ghar par rehti ho, what do you do all day?’

This series, would give me a break from all the saas-bahu flicks and makes me feel more appreciated about the feeling of motherhood.

Do I recommend it?

Needless to say, I would 100% recommend it to my reader and suggest them to go and watch it on ZEE5. This comedy-drama series is fun to watch with or without your better half. I am not able to control my excitement as it will be streaming on 11th March. Are you going to watch it too? If you do watch it, then do let me know your reviews on the new Mentalhood series by ZEE5 in the comment section.
