There are tons more films on the horizon before 2012 comes to a close but my interest in this new year release just went from zero to a thousand!!
Matru ki Bijlee ki Mandola just dropped its sneak peek trailer with an in person launch on the 17th and I absolutely must have this film!! Present were the prominent actors in character, with their director Vishal Bhardwaj. It’s the first pairing of Anushka Sharma (Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Band Baaja Baaraat) and Imran Khan (Delhi Belly, I Hate Luv Storys) and my goodness was this a great idea. Not to mention seasoned artistic gods like Shabani Azmi and Pankaj Kapur.
The energy of this clip is through the roof, combining wit and cheeky, with rugged and sexy, while Imran is exactly like I love him, natural, gruff and comedically understated.
This film may not hit theaters until we cross over to ’13 but I’m chomping at the bit in anticipation, for it’s definitely going to be a foot-stomping, gut wiggling way to start the year.
Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola will premiere during my birthday month– January 11, 2013.
