    Sridevi’s electrifying, flawless and thrilling performance in #MOM was well deserved and worthy winner of National Award. Her breakdown scene at the hospital in the movie must be studied and lectured in all acting schools on how to portray someone who is in terrible shock and immensely distress. Such was an impact that it makes viewer feel the pain of a helpless grieving mother throughout the entire movie. R.I.P. to the Great Actress of India: Srideviji!!!

    Well deserved National Award for Indian Cinema’s Greatest Actress “Sridevi ji”. She was the first actress ever who brought extreme energy into acting and completely changed the dynamics and grammer of commercial cinema acting with her exceptional and electrifying performances which are still so fresh in our memories. Master of her own craft in canvasing articulate and extremely diverse roles way beyond our imagination, Sridevi ma’am is a true iconic legend with such an illuminous career that we can only glare with respect in the sky. R.I.P. Ma’am!

      Smita Patil, Shabana Azmi, Lakshmi and many more from regional cinema are greater actresses than Sridevi.

        Sridevi is a complete Indian actress who mastered the art of acting in all form of genres with 100% perfection. With due respect can you imagine Sabhana Azmi or Smita Patel in any of those Sridevi movies: Art (Sadma), Glamour (Chandani), Revenge Drama (MOM), Mythical (Nagina), Comedy (as Charlie Chaplin in Mr. India), Queen Tribe (Khuda Gawah), Double Role (Chaalbaaz), Housewife (English Vinglish), Sensual (Mr. India) etc. Answer is NO WAY!

          Answer is YES. Smita Patil and Shabana Azmi have both done art, glamour, revenge drama, comedy.. In fact, Sridevi could have never been able to do what these two actresses have done in their numerous critically acclaimed films.
