Box Office: Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola opens with Rs.7.02 crore
Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola had box office collections of Rs.7.02 crore on its first day making it the best opening for a movie by director Vishal Bhardwaj.

Vishal Bhardwaj's "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola", a political satire targeting land scam, which has earned rave reviews especially for Pankaj Kapur's performance, collected Rs.7.02 crore on its opening day, making it the highest ever opening for the director.

Co-produced by Bhardwaj, the film has been made at a budget of about Rs.33 crore. And its opening is said to be much higher than Bhardwaj's "Kaminey", said a statement.

Set in the rustic surroundings of a village in Haryana, "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola" is about Harry Mandola (Pankaj Kapur), an industrialist, who loves his drink, daughter Bijlee (Anushka Sharma) and the unusual bond he shares with his Man Friday Matru (Imran Khan).

Many felt that political satire as such has not been a well explored subject in cinema and hence this one is a bold step pushing the envelope where no one else has dared to venture.

In fact, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan too praised the film. He tweeted: "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."
