The main crux

The series focuses its attention on the day to day issue of parenting that generally all parents deal with – issues like bullying, gender issues, exam fever, surrogacy, health, and various other topics. In the form of entertainment, parents also learn something at the end of each episode.

Every mother has her own strategy to face the various dilemmas and issues related to parenting, relationships, house, and her work – with only one aim – to be the best of the best. Mentalhood basically captured this theme in a fun way.

Written by Ritu Bhatia and directed by Karishma Kohli, the show has started streaming from March 11.

Mentalhood Trailer Review

Image sourced by ZEE5

The three-minute Mentalhood trailer depicts a picture of the daily issues faced by the parents, in extension to problems that crop out of their aspirations and disagreements with their partners. Meira ( Karishma Kapoor), has moved from Kanpur to the big bustling city of Mumbai wants to gel with her group of friends who are also mothers. She was “Miss Kanpur” before she got married, and wants her three kids to go to the same school as Bollywood superstars.

This mentality also extends outside of her children’s schooling, with Meira pushing her kids to audition for advertisements and hoping for the paparazzi to show up, while they enjoy the limelight.

The next half of the Mentalhood trailer takes a more exciting turn, with the parents losing it as they are pulled in every direction by the various demands placed on them. The trailer frequently validates the show’s finger-wagging approach, and also when the mothers calling themselves the village after Meira paraphrases the proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.”

My personal Verdict

I am not a serial person and don’t like the general serial themes that are aired on TV, but this has got my attention and am personally thrilled and excited to start watching the show. As a mother, who juggles her life daily between everything – I can totally relate myself to the trailer and I am positive many mothers would also feel the same.
