Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway tells the story of Devika Chatterjee, an Indian immigrant mother who leads a seemingly idyllic life in Norway with her husband and two children. However, her life takes a sudden and devastating turn, when her children are removed from her care by the Norwegian foster system due to differences in culture.
Rani’s performance in her latest film was lauded by several of her Bollywood colleagues. Actor Katrina Kaif had said on Instagram Stories, “What an incredible gripping story, just captivates you, a rollercoaster of emotions – Rani Mukerji no words to describe your brilliance, spellbound. Huge congratulations to the entire team.” Actor Vicky Kaushal had also said about the film on Instagram Stories, “Makes your heart go out to families which have gone through the ordeal for real! Brilliantly told and performed. Hats off to Rani for baring her soul out… also Jim Sarbh, Anirban Bhattacharya and the entire ensemble cast for their nuanced performances. Ashima Chibber you are going to make people cry and love you for it. Congrats Nikkhil Advani.”
Mrs Chatterjee vs Norway was only Rani’s fifth film in a decade and her previous two films Mardaani 2 and Bunty Aur Babli 2 were sequels. In a recent interview, Rani spoke about why she has become selective with her films in the last few years. Speaking to Pinkvilla, she said, “The reason that I take this gap is because I wait for an audience reaction for my film that is releasing. The fact is that I stay at home and replenish myself. I kind of think. I kind of see cinemas from around the world, what is coming and what kind of work people are doing across the globe.”
