Set in the rustic surroundings of a village in Haryana in India, "Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola" is a comedy-drama about Harry Mandola (PANKAJ KAPUR), a wealthy industrialist who loves his drink, his daughter Bijlee (ANUSHKA SHARMA) and the unusual bond they both share with Harry’s man friday, Matru (IMRAN KHAN). Much to her father's delight, Bijlee is all set to marry Baadal (ARYA BABBAR), the son of a powerful politician Chaudhari Devi (SHABANA AZMI). This alliance which is far from just being a simple union of two young people becomes the seed for a story that brings twists and turns in the lives of Matru, Bijlee and Mandola. *Note: Hindi with English subtitles
Watch the trailer. All in all it sounds like a fun film. Yes, there will be English subtitles in the theater (I need them too). As usual of Bollywood movies expect singing, dancing, comedy, drama, romance all rolled up into one. Beyond the typical storyline, actors and actresses break into to song at the most improbable moments -- that alone should be enough to make you want to join us for this.
