New Delhi: Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’, a political satire targeting land scam, which has collected Rs 7.02 crore on its opening day. The film has been made at a budget of about Rs 33 crore.
A statement said that its opening is said to be much higher than Bhardwaj’s ‘Kaminey’.
Set in the rustic surroundings of a village in Haryana, ‘Matru Ki…’ is about Harry Mandola (Pankaj), an industrialist, who loves his drink, daughter Bijlee (Anushka) and the strange bond he shares with Matru (Imran).
Actually, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan too admired the film.
He tweeted that “A land issue much like Singur, rich and poor divide, communism of takes, anti alcohol, love triangle (DDLJ style [‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’]), politics – all portrayed in a manner not unknown to us, yet unknown… a composite satire, if ever satires could be composite.”
