Critic Reviews for Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Save for a couple of visually engaging dance numbers, mostly shot with hand-held digital cameras, MKBKM is dishearteningly banal.

Judicious editing could have helped consolidate the joyfulness at the expense of occasionally repetitive narrative flab, but for the most part "Matru" is neatly energetic, a mix of screwball whimsy and softball seriousness.

A mix of gently outraged populism and low-powered romantic comedy, Vishal Bhardwaj's "Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola" might have been better with a chunk lopped off its two-and-a-half-hour runtime.

A technically proficient widescreen opus that shifts, jarringly, between a generic love-triangle rom-com, a farcical political black comedy and a preachy message-movie. Some fragmented images and well-played moments leave an impact; most don't.

Scattershot romantic comedy about an arranged marriage between an heiress and a politician's son that will ruin several rural farms.

Film Journal International

A zany satire that will leave you either mesmerised by its brilliance or just a little dazed by it's lunacy.
