Framed as a science fiction thriller, Hari and Harish’s Telugu 2022 film Yashoda focuses on surrogacy, the capitalist agenda of the cosmetics industry, and body politics. Frequently, the film shifts to a melodramatic strain and offers problematic and regressive representations of motherhood, but there are still significant merits to the film in terms of its subject matter.
