Pradeep Sarkar’s Helicopter Eela is more emotional than joyful ride riding on the universal emotion “Motherhood”. It is indeed the “Motherhood” theme that saves the film’s shortcomings and of course Kajol; who lights up the screen loud enough each time hovering over you not letting you sit lose.

The first half is a Deja-vu and would give trip down the memory lane to many. It may not be so hilarious, but the cameos are fun and engaging. Kajol plays Eela single Mother her journey of life comes across opportunities easily and easily loses them too be it her love played by Tota Roy Chowdhary or be it her work with “Bhatt saab ko underworld se phone aa gaya” you know which era you belong to.

Life is smooth only until one silly logic arrives making Kajol a Single Mother. Tota Roy Chowdhary is not just out of the plot; he is out of the cast too. We only wish they could have casted someone who would have complimented Kajol well in the limited time he had. You will feel happier to see the lady at the bus stop coming alive than Kajol meeting her Tota in the very first scene.

Nevertheless, the film rides on Kajol and she does what she is best at; being at high pitch. She not only succeeds to irritate her son; she irritates audiences too at times. It is somewhere the content and the motherhood theme that keeps your interest in the film. Be it a single parent or otherwise; mothers are indeed like that; wherein they do get lost in their motherhood losing themselves, their identity, their interests, hobbies and what not. Riddhi Sen as Vivan plays Kajol’s son; who is hovered by Kajol everywhere be it his bedroom, bathroom or college. His space is crunched with too much of motherhood; in spite of all this their equation is flawless; the understanding amongst them is great. The reciprocation is just right and helps develop the relationship stronger than being misunderstood. Vivan played by Riddhi Sen is quite matured for his age and has a great screen presence.

The film hits all the right notes when motherhood is concerned and Kajol does her best. The film has a strong message; loosely conveyed. Could have been much better.
