Smrity says, “It is a delight to watch Vidya Balan. More so when she is presented as a character that is likeable, relatable and so entertaining. Living by the mantra, ‘mai kar sakti hai’ , her forever positive attitude is infectious as she carries on with her life of a simple homemaker. Winning the little competitions that are held in her society, being tagged as the ‘best mother’ in one of those; a little word of appreciation from the husband Ashok (Manav Kaul); breaking into an impromptu gig with her little son while her favourite song plays on the radio are what forms the highlights of her mundane day.

“Though happy, she is not satiated with her life and what she has achieved and we can feel the undercurrents of an unattended ambition in her demeanor. This, along with her ‘I can do it all’ attitude will nudge her to try a hand at radio jockeying. But will she be able to don this new role with the same perfection that she mastered as a homemaker? Will she ace the work-life balance? Tying a dupatta around her like a cape has always made Sulu feel like a superwoman. The second half will be the true test of her superpowers.”
