Sometimes it's the simplest stories that touch us most deeply. Cuddly affirms this by giving us a glimpse into the lives of a mother and her daughter. The film, most effortlessly, tells the story of one evening which is perhaps the representative of their entire relationship. Convincing performances by Neena Kulkarni and Shruti Vyas, along with Karan Shetty's competent direction, add to it greatly.
A mother may not always understand her child's decision, especially those pertaining to her education and profession, yet her love remains unconditional. Cuddly is a winning portrayal of a mother's unwavering support, despite her inability to familiarise herself with all aspects of her daughter's life.
