Song-Oye Boy Charlie...
Song-Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola
Movie Review:- Harry Mandola (Pankaj Kapoor) is a filthy rich, alcoholic builder who dreams of setting up industries and exploits the village which is named after his ancestors. Matru (Imran Khan), a Jat boy, is a bonded labourer who, even after completing his education, is serving Mr Mandola for the loan his grandfather had borrowed from Harry. Bijlee (Anushka Sharma) is the feminist (at least in her intro scene) daughter of Mandola who is about to be wedded to Badal (Arya Babbar), the son of a corrupt and power-hungry politician. The rest of the plot is too confusing to even try and explain. Lets say it is somewhat communist ideologies versus anarchy – presented through a battle of villagers and through the split personalities of Mandola.
Direction, Performance and Music:- Vishal Bharadwaj’s Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola is wonder ful movie. The Movies may not be commercial blockbusters, but the filmmakers’ intentions are honest. Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma, playing villagers who have been educated in the big city, are anything but consistent with the Haryanvi patois and accent. There performances is variable but pankaj’s performance is outstanding.
Overall:- Very Good Movie.
