Karan and mothers! He really loves them. Almost all his movies have a strong mother role. Which are your favorites?
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
Kal Ho Na Ho
Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
Okay, my rankings!!!!
Listed Best to Worst!!!!
Preity Zinta in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
Love her! Works hard to put food on the table, still has time to defend her son from her angry husband, and manages being a single Mom with no problem once she dumps the grumpy husband.
Reema Lagoo in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Understands her daughter fully without needing to talk about things, there to support her in whatever she chooses, straight up tells her to cancel the wedding if she isn’t in love.
Farida Jalal in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
Not only raises her own daughter, adopts the motherless daughters next door, and the lonely rich boys she nannies!
Kajol in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
A big embarrassing, a bit pushy, but over all relaxed and loving and letting her son and sister/daughter be free and find their own place.
Farida Jalal in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Loving understanding all those great things. But could have pushed her son a little harder to get over his grief! And indulged her granddaughter a little less.
Kirron Kher in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
Kirron is awesome and all of that. But maybe she should have been pushier to make sure her grandson wasn’t raised in an angry unhappy house!
Reema Lagoo in Kal Ho Na Ho
Loves her son, there for him, etc. etc. But also, makes him feel like he has to be happy for her, which isn’t great.
Jaya Bachchan in Kal Ho Na Ho
Now we are getting to the bottom 3! Jaya in KHNH is doing the best she can, sort of. But she needs to get that toxic Grandma out of her house! As soon as that old lady started abusing her little daughter, she should be OUT!!!
Jaya Bachchan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
Loving supportive and all that. But also, has a little preference for one son over the other, and a husband over all of them!!!!
Rani Mukherjee in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
WHO PUTS THAT MUCH PRESSURE ON AN 8 YEAR OLD????
