Story: The story revolves around an NRI Manorath (Sharman Joshi) who comes to India to meet his Nani (Rekha), Bharti Bhatia. But he is shocked and extremely saddened to see the plight of his Nani as her husband (Randhir Kapoor) and children don't respect her and treat her like a kitchen handling maid. Whereas Bharti's every waking hour is devoted to looking after the smallest need and praying for the betterment of her family. Then Sharman plans to teach a lesson to her husband and children. He encourages his Nani to enter the modelling world. The story takes an interesting turn here which shows the journey of Bharti transforming from a 'Grahini' to an independent woman.
Review: "Super Nani" is the Bollywood film adaptation of hit Gujarati play "Baa Ae Maari Boundary", which is all about a woman who is ridiculed and taken for granted by her family. Written by Indra Kumar, it is a message oriented film which is, at the same time, entertaining. After portraying the role of an old dadi of Hrithik Roshan in 'Krishh', she again impresses the audience with her sentimental and bold avatar. Rekha sends a message across women of all age groups to discover their power and show the world what they are capable of. She looks ravishing in her modern look. '3 Idiots' actor Sharman Joshi has again proved his mettle with his brilliant acting skills and has looked great as a guide and mentor to his nani. The film is made with lot of heart and emotions. The movie’s biggest weakness is its predictability and over melodrama. Anupam Kher tickles funny bone as a filmmaker. Randhir Kapoor as Rekha’s on screen husband has few good scenes. Debutant Shweta Kumar is good. Watch this film if you are a fan of Rekha or Sharman Joshi.
