    Helicopter Eela, the movie revolves around single Mother, our beautiful diva of 90's Kajol as Eela, and her son, Riddhi Sen, as Vivaan, who is an Aspiring singer. In the movie also, Eela got recognition in the industry not by her acting but by her singing talent. Eela as single mother dumped her dreams, aspirations to keep the upbringing right and take proper care of her son Vivaan. The current day, her teenage son needs some breathing space but Eela keeps her eye on her and invades his personal life from the perspective of Vivaan. She ages, but remain glamorous in the movie and in our hearts too. However, her hyper acting as supermom sometimes breaks the flow of the movie. She is as loud as the 'helicopter' and hence the movie title.
    This is a comedy-drama film which will really make you laugh in the first half but anyhow it loses its grip in the second half. The movie needs more punch and editing in the second half. Kajol again proves that she is one of the finest actresses of the Bollywood. Pradeep Da's work is definitely appreciable to make this simple but complex nature of the mother-oriented movie. This movie is absolutely for all mothers with dreams in their eyes. We can relate this movie to our life as Kajol's overprotective Indian mother portrayed. This movie is comic, dramatic, relatable and a must watch for Kajol's fans. A one-time watch entertainer will give you good vibes and keep you stick to your seats in the theatre.
