Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola fails to rake in the moolah at box office

By Hindustan Times

Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola (MKBKM), which was touted as the year’s first big release, couldn’t make a mark at the box office.

There were high hopes riding on the film due to various reasons, including the fact that it’s a Vishal Bhardwaj film and features veteran actors Pankaj Kapur and Shabana Azmi. The music was also in the news for its freshness and the slick promos that made the movie look promising.

Even though critics gave it a good rating, the movie’s box-office collection has been dismal. Trade analyst Komal Nahta says, “MKBKM is lengthy and boring. It entertains only in parts. That’s probably why it didn’t make a mark at the box office.”
