Mrs. Chatterjee Vs Norway Review {3.0/5} & Review Rating

MRS CHATTERJEE VS NORWAY is the story of a mother fighting against a foreign government. Debika Chatterjee (Rani Mukherji) stays in Stavanger, Norway with her husband Anirudh (Anirban Bhattacharya), elder son Shubh (Yuvaan Vanvari) and five months old daughter Shuchi. Sia (Kärt Tammjärv) and Matilda (Britta Soll) of Velfred, a child welfare service, hired by the Norwegian government, have been visiting the Chatterjee’s on a daily basis to monitor how the couple is raising their child. During the last review meeting, Sia and Matilda snatch Shubh and Shuchi and run away. The Chatterjee’s are shocked and they are told that they can’t hold custody of their child as they are unfit to do so. Velfred lists multiple reasons for it. They also hire a lawyer for Chatterjee’s, Sunil Kapoor (Namit). The lawyer passionately fights for them. He argues that some of the so-called flawed parenting techniques listed out by Velfred like feeding a child by the hand, parents sleeping with children etc are Indian cultural practices and can’t be termed faulty. The Chatterjee’s win the case. Yet, the government on a strange pretext doesn’t allow custody. The case now goes to the High Court where Chatterjee’s lawyer is Daniel Singh Ciupek (Jim Sarbh). The case is already shaky for Chaterjee’s. On top of it, Debika’s uncontrollable behaviour, stemming from being forced away from her children, weakens their case even more. Debika has a reservation about Daniel as she feels that he’s a government-appointed lawyer and hence, he can cheat them. Anirudh, however, doesn’t pay heed. He’s concerned about getting Norwegian citizenship and doesn’t want to rub the government the wrong way. Also, he is not ready to shell out money to appoint a private lawyer. Meanwhile, Debika finds out shocking truths regarding the child custody system in Norway that prompts her to take a significant step. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
