Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola - the first trailer

Where have we been? It's been over a year since this blog posted anything; now it returns with the trailer of Vishal's next directorial film.

Here is the teaser to "Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola":

From this, we glean the following tidbits:

  • The film is slated to release on Jan 11, 2013 (so there's another three months to go)
  • We now know how to pronounce "Matru" (it's "मटरू")
  • There's Shabana Azmi as well, returning to work with Vishal after playing the eponymous role in his debut film "Makdee"
  • No surprises on the musical credits: Gulzar saab, Clinton Cerejo et al.
  • The two-seater airplane is almost out of Tintin
  • Though perhaps lacking the immediate impact of trailers for Kaminey and even Saat Khoon Maaf, there are enough intriguing elements: just what is the Meena Kumari complex? What's with the pink cow (or is purple? Should we ask Seth Godin)? And will Imran Khan's Haryanvi accent hold?
And to remind you that the origins of this film are in a Haryanvi play recommended by Pankaj Kapur himself.

A post on the Fight Club blog with some more nuggets.
