Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A devoted, divorced mother of three finds her family dynamics shifting in ways she never thought possible after her ex-husband introduces the children to his new girlfriend in this Bollywood remake of the 1998 drama Stepmom. Maya (Kajol) is positively adored by her three children Anjali (Diya Sonecha), Ankush (Nominath Ginsburg), and Aleya (Aanchal Munjal). And though her marriage to Aman (Arjun Rampal) may have not worked out, both parents do their best to give their children a happy upbringing. When Aman introduces Anjali, Ankush, and Aleya to his ambitious, goal-oriented girlfriend Shreya (Kareena Kapoor), however, it quickly becomes apparent that Shreya has been too caught up in her work to grasp the intense responsibilities of motherhood. Meanwhile, when circumstances dictate that Maya and the children move in with Aman and Shreya, an unexpected development prompts the two women to put their differences aside and focus on keeping the family together though the coming storm.
