Trailer Talk: MATRU KI BIJLEE KA MANDHOLA (2013)
Holy crap!! So I just recently caught the multiple teasers and Theatrical Trailer for Vishal Bhardwaj’s next Directorial… MATRU KI BIJLEE KA MANDHOLA!
I love Vishal Bhardwaj. I’ve watched every more, and even if I don’t prefer them, they’re the most uniquest films made in Bollywood. After SAATH KHOON MAAF, Bhardwaj returns with this one, and it’s freakin’ awesome!!
You can always rely on Bhardwaj’s movies to take established ‘stars’ and portray them like we’ve never ever seen them before. And such is the case with Imran Khan in this one. It took the Trailer to come on TV 3 times, before I recognized who the hell this guy was. He’s completely unrecognizable as the titular Matru, sporting a full on beard and gruff rural look. Which is a huge leap from the typical candy floss, pretty boy roles he’s used to doing.
Anushka Sharma is probably one of the stronger female actors of Bollywood these days. Despite only having done a handful of movies since her debut almost 5 years ago, she’s shown a maturity that some actresses don’t until a good 10 years into the Industry. From the Trailers , her role as Bijlee seems to be her most…. provocative role yet, as she’s display the entire range of her… umm, hotness. I’m not complaining.
Rounding out the trio from the title is Mandola which is played by the legendary character actor, Pankaj Kapur, father of Shahid Kapoor as… I don’t really know what.
So I have no idea WTF the story of this movie is about… at all. But honestly, I don’t care. Vishal Bhardwaj is one director, any movie of whose I will watch… unquestioningly. With him behind the camera, and these amazing actors in (what appears to be) crazy ass roles… MATRU KI BIJLEE KA MANDOLA just became my most awaited movie of 2013!
