Directed by Ashima Chibber, the film also features Jim Sarbh, Neena Gupta, and Anirban Bhattacharya in pivotal roles, bringing to life the real-life story of a mother’s unwavering determination to reclaim her children, who were taken away by Norwegian authorities.

Rani Mukerji’s portrayal of Debika Chatterjee is set to be captivating, evoking a spectrum of emotions from empathy to admiration. Her performance has already earned accolades, with Mukerji winning the Zee Cine Awards’ Best Actor – Female and the Filmfare Awards’ Best Actress in Critics for her role in this powerful film.

Speaking about her experience, Rani Mukerji expressed, “For me, Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway is not just a film; it’s an emotional journey that reflects the resilience of a mother’s love. The aim was to bring Sagarika’s story on celluloid through Debika’s character and to make the audience experience the pain that a mother went through when she was separated from her children.”

Director Ashima Chibber shared her sentiments, emphasizing the universal connection of the film, “How can separating a child from her mother be an option? How can anyone think of it as an option? This was the first thing that came to my mind when I heard of the case. We wanted to make this film universal and it will definitely connect with audiences because at the end of the day we’re all born to mothers, no matter what relationship you have now.”

‘Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway’ is based on a real-life incident, depicting the story of Indian immigrant Debika Chatterjee (Rani Mukerji) whose children are taken away on the grounds of alleged improper parenting. Charges against her include reasons such as sleeping in the same bed, hand-feeding her kids, and applying kajal on their faces to ward off the evil eye, ultimately deeming her unfit to be a mother. The film follows her relentless fight against these odds to reunite with her children, raising questions of justice and the lengths a mother will go to for her family.

As audiences prepare to witness this powerful narrative unfold, mark your calendars and tune in to ‘Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway’ on Sunday, March 24th at 12 pm only on Zee Cinema. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience this heart-wrenching tale of love and determination with friends and family.
