Rani Mukerji's 'Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway' gets a release date
Rani Mukerji-led film Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway finally has a release date. The movie, directed by Ashima Chibber, will be coming to theaters on May 20, 2022, said its makers. This means it will engage in a head-on clash with Rajkummar Rao and Sanya Malhotra's HIT: The First Case. And since both belong to the thriller genre, it will be a tough competition.
Why does it matter?
- Among Mukerji's last three releases, Hichki and Mardaani 2 did well with critics and viewers, while Bunty Aur Babli 2 received a lukewarm response.
- All these films had the actress in different roles and she aced them all.
- Will Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway be as engaging? We'll have to wait and watch, but that it's based on a real-life incident makes it worth it.
Makers shared an image along with the announcement
Emmay Entertainment, which is backing the film, announced the news officially on its social media pages. They shared an image with a caption that read, "With the odds against her, this mother must fight it all and more to be strong for her children! Inspired by a true story, #MrsChatterjeeVsNorway starring #RaniMukerji releases in theatres on - Friday, May 20th 2022 (sic)!"

Shooting of 'Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway' got finished in October
The shooting schedule of the film got wrapped in October, two months after it commenced. If the title is anything to go by, Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway will revolve around a court case in Norway, where a woman (Mukerji) and her husband lose their children's custody after being accused of neglecting them. They eventually win the case and the kids are sent to India.
Here's all about the competitor, 'HIT: The First Case'
Calling the project an "entertainer with a brilliant concept," Mukerji said she "hoped that this film will resonate with everyone." Its competitor, HIT: The First Case is a Bollywood remake of a Telugu film by the same name, which had Vishwak Sen and Ruhani Sharma in the lead roles. Directed by Sailesh Kolanu, HIT is being backed by Bhushan Kumar under the T-Series banner.
