Woo-hoo, ALTBalaji! I am dipping my toes into the highest quality Indian based original streaming content. (index of all Mentalhood reviews here)
“Mentalhood” is a dramedy starring Karisma Kapoor, former major star and major talent, married at the peak of her success, and now returning to acting after some very bumpy years (long messy divorce) and two kids. It’s along the same lines as Big Little Lies or the Bad Moms movie, or Twinkle Khanna’s comic writings. The stresses and strains of the very wealthy mothers of Bombay. Fun cast, fun dialogue, fun little glimpse into that way of life (for example, the school that brings all the characters together is clearly based on the Ambani school where AbRam Khan goes, including constant references to “Aryan Khanna” the movie star whose son goes there).
And, ALTBalaji is only a few dollars a month! Totally worth it.
