When a respected cinematographer like Anil Mehta compliments you on the stylishness of your approach (in Mom), you can consider yourself to have arrived! Goswamy had done notable work earlier, but he is now shooting mega ventures like the Hrithik Roshan-starring Super 30 and Yash Raj’s Ranbir Kapoor film Shamshera.
Goswamy has used the Red Dragon camera with a set of Ultra Prime lenses to shoot Mom, not in an ultra-realistic raw manner, but through a considered “designed naturalism”. The colour scheme and lighting changes during different chapters of the film. Director Ravi Udyawar and Goswami fearlessly aim high. The daughter’s breakdown and near suicide is wisely shot as a single three-and-a-half minute take with the handheld camera discomfortingly close to the main characters’ exposed emotions. Mom turned out to be Sridevi’s last film and Goswami feels they portrayed her in an unseen manner with mood lighting and contrast, and with underexposure and overexposure operating in extremes. The result is a fitting swan song.
