The first Indian film to be nominated for an Oscar, Mother India is a portrait of hardworking wife and mother Radha, and the village community where she lives. When her husband abandons her Radha must bring up her children, look after her farm and defend her honour all by herself. Mother India is told in flashback as the old Radha remembers her life and features some fantastic musical set pieces. The film explores ideas of patriotism, tradition, families, love and loyalty - all extremely topical at a time when India was establishing itself as a new state.
A mix of dark crime 'film noir' and melodrama, involving a love clash over a playboy between a spoilt girl and her hard-working mother.
