I like Vishal Bhardwaj's films. I believe it can be said that he is an intelligent director. MAQBOOL, OMKARA and KAMINEY are very impressive compelling films with wonderful actors who obviously love to have the chance to work with Bhardwaj. Wiki says that Bhardwaj came to Mumbai to become a music composer; he took to directing films only to create the opportunity to compose music. He collaborated with Gulzar, the Indian poet, lyricist and director.

Interesting that Bhardwaj began in music, he also sings and his wife Rekha Bhardwaj is a wonderful Indian 'playback' singer with her own recognizable, haunting and soulful sound. Musicians don't often possess a keen visual ability, but Bhardwaj's painterly frame compositions and use of color transfer his films' feelings beautifully.

Although MATRU KI BIJLEE KA MANDOLA does not hold together as well as the other three I mentioned, what did interest me is that Bhardwaj is using this film to expose the use of bank loans to appropriate land from the farmers who have no understanding of usury and debt. One might say that he has revealed the true nature of the corporatization of India and the world in this whimsical often silly and absurd comedy.

In this film Bhardwaj is an activist who gives his audience a lesson in corporate economics explaining the recycling of money flow from the corporations who pay the workers, who spend their pay in shopping malls filled with seductive stuff made by the same corporations, and therefore the money flows right back into the corporations. Here Bhardwaj is an activist who lectures with humor and farce - honey with medicine so to speak.

I admire Shabana Azmi, but she is a bit out of character as the evil politician.

I was hoping for a really good story on this one! The soundtrack was awesome, the trailer was very intriguing, but the movie fell flat to me!

I thought it was going to be a love story with ofcourse a sub plot and the relationship between the three main characters... but it was more a political fight for the people with the love story and the relationships as the sub plot...

It could have worked and maybe it should have but for some reason this movie didn't and i can't quite put my finger on why it didn't other than nobody seemed really invested in any of the relationships more than their own selfish desires and wants. Imran's character was fighting for the people but working for mandola who has oppressing the people to gain favor with a political love interest....so i was confused why he was working for him when he clearly didn't respect him? and you could tell there was sparks between him and bijlee but not enough to keep him working for her father....

I think everything in this movie felt half hearted and they tried to put in too many aspects instead of just sticking to one or two things! watch it if your a fan but you won't really miss out if you don't!

Off beat comedy that addresses alcoholism in a new way. I enjoyed the storry line. Imran and Anushka give good performances. It is good to see Imran do a more meaty role.

Excellent movie! Funny, funny, funny! Imran and Anushka had nice chemistry. This actress is an absolute chameleon. I like Imran's growth. Mr. Kapoor gave compassion and understanding to what could have been just another drunkard role.
