Pankaj Kapur plays the perfect bewda and Imran Khan is at his best as the man Friday
Our critic is watching Vishal Bhardwaj’s Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola right now and this is what she has to say: “Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola is an entertaining movie. It shows an alcoholic Harry aka Haria Mandola (Pankaj Kapur), his man Friday Matru (Imran Khan), his daughter Bijlee Mandola (Anushka Sharma) and a pink cow which pops up whenever Mandola stops drinking.”
She adds, “While there’s not a single moment that will make you yawn, the songs do – three till interval. Pankaj Kapur steals your heart as a cute bewda, Imran is doing great as the rustic man Friday and Anushka behaves her usual chirpy self. But while these characters are playing their roles well, it’s the daaru ki botal that’s the game changer in the movie. How will the game change? Will the bewda Mandola turn into a teetotaler? That remains to be seen.”
So stay clued in to this space for the full review.
