Cast: Pooja Gor, Karan Wahi
Director: Swati Semwal
New born mother is a story about Postpratum depression which a woman faces post her pregnancy. It is a condition where the mother feels lonely, stressed and neglected. Swati Semwal’s film talks about a very different and real content which no medium channel has covered yet. It needs lot of confidence to bring out the real problem of a women hidden from the world.
Jenny (Pooja Gor) is the new mother who faces a kind of depression during and post her pregnancy. She couldn’t feel her baby also cannot feel the excitment and happiness of a mother. In such a phase of Jenny her husband Siddharth (Karan Wahi) supports and stand by her. He understands and takes up his responsibilities of being a dad.
Pooja Gor was convincing as a depressed mother while Karan bagged his role of a soft hearted and understanding father cum husband. Both are great actors so could have been more better in Newborn Mother by Swati Semwal. Dialouges were very less thus film lacked behind to convey the message effectively.
Postpratum Depression affects 50 – 75% women globally and 40 – 60% women in India. Drastic hormonal and emotional changes, post delivery, leads to women feeling lonely, stressed and neglected. These are times to give them mazimum care and attention, just like the Newborn babies there is a New Born Mother.
Cinespeaks Verdict: New Born Mother delivers a secret message about mothers who face depression post their pregnancy. An one time watch shortfilm teach a message not only about mothers but New Born Mothers. Same like new born babies there are New Born Mothers whom should be taken care of by their families.
