Audiences are open to new genres and new experiences and Maja Ma does all that and more. Pulling at the viewers’ heartstrings while also making them laugh at the same time, this beautiful story features a highly versatile cast who breathe life into their characters flawlessly and beautifully. It is truly fulfilling to witness Indian content reach worldwide audiences.”

The movie is a labour of love for all of us, from the wonderfully talented cast to the hardworking crew, each of them has done their best to bring this amazing movie to the audience. The result is a story with intricate storytelling, interspersed with human emotions and several life lessons that continue to be with the audiences long after they have finished watching the movie. I cannot wait to see the reactions to this beautifully crafted story from viewers outside the country.”
