Matru ki Bijli ka Mandola: Movie Summary

Movie - Matru ki Bijli ka Mandola.

Cast - khan as Matru, Pankaj Kapoor as Mandola, Anushka Sharma as Bijli, Shabana Azmi as Choudhary Mam.

Summary - Matru is Mandola's driver and also has the job of stopping Mandola from over drinking alcohol coz he loses control and does weird things whenever he is drunk. And whenever he tries to stop drinking he starts hallucinating and sees a pink cow which is also the logo of the beer called Gulabo which Mandola usually drinks. Mandola is a very rich person who owns a lot of property. Bijli is Mandola's daughter and Matru is taking care of her since her childhood (No points for guessing who will end up as a couple!). I have absolutely no clue as to what Bijli with her contemporary looks and attitude is doing in that village where all other girls actually look and live like village girls.
Mandola has a plan of buying land from all the farmers in the village and build factories and shopping malls in their place. So he and Choudhary Mam offer the villagers a price in return for their lands. Also the bank will take away the land if the villagers are unable to pay the loan in 3 months. The villagers say that they will have to take advice from a secret person named ‘Maao’ who helps the villagers by providing tips via notes hanging on trees but never reveals his identity to any of the villagers. The same night the villagers get a note from Maao saying there is no need to sell their land as this year monsoon was good and if it doesn't rain again they will have enough money to pay off their bank loans. The villagers take the advice and are also able to pay the first installment of the loan. Mandola and Choudhary Mam are furious. Choudhary Mam asks Mandola to pray sincerely to make it rain by making him promise that he will never drink again. He does and it rains! The crops are destroyed leaving the villagers with no option but to sell their lands to Mandola. Now Choudhary Mam is also interested in Mandola's property so she wants her son Baadal to marry Mandolas daughter Bijli. Matru is planning to leave the village as he feels that he failed in his task of saving the villagers but Bijli convinces him to stay. The two make a plan to stop this marriage. They paint cows pink and send them near Mandolas house where the marriage ceremony is taking place. They also keep many beer bottles in his house scattered and wait for Mandola to fall for the bait and get drunk. Soon Mandola is shown with a bottle in his hand and all drunk. He realises that all this was a mistake and stops the ceremony. Choudhary Mam is angry as Mandola is behaves like a drunk and ruins the ceremony. The marriage is over and Choudhary Mam is asked to leave. Later Mandola asks Matru to marry Bijli. But Matru refuses saying that Mandola is drunk now and will kill him for this in the morning as soon as he comes to his senses. Mandola then reveals that he wasn't drunk at all the whole time showing that the beer bottle is still sealed.
Everyone is happy. All dance to the song ‘Matru ki Bijli ka Mandola’. Even Choudhary Mam and her son come back with the police and all dance together! Confused! The movie ends! Planet sense must be wobbling around its axis right now!

Vishwaroopam: Movie Summary

Movie - Vishwaroopam.

Cast - Kamal khan as Mr. Vishwanathan a.k.a Viz, Noideawhosheis as Ms. Vishwanathan a.k.a Nirupama, Rahul Bose as Umar bhai.

Summary - Viz and Nirupama live in the USA and are married to each other but do not love each other. Nirupama has married him just for the green card (a common story these days). He is a classical dance teacher while she is a nuclear science doctor. Paradox!!! She is having an affair with her boss and just to avoid the guilt hires a private detective who will spy on Viz and try to find something to blame Viz. If Viz too is found having an affair she would also get some closure and won't feel the guilt. The detective is following Viz but comes across a terrorist warehouse and gets killed. The terrorist group leader, Umar bhai, orders his men to bring whoever hired the detective. His men bring Nirupama and Viz for interrogation who have no clue what’s happening and Viz is beaten up. Soon Umar sees Viz. He is shocked and orders his men to shoot him immediately. But Viz kills all his men while Nirupama is shocked seeing her classical dancer husband fighting like a hero.
This is followed by a flashback showing Umar bhai and Viz (with a different name) training in Afghanistan for a terrorist group. Viz is one of their best militants. But one day Americans locate their hiding place and destroy everything. Only Umar and couple of his men survive. It is revealed that Viz was helping the Americans and he is the one who discloses their location (end of flashback).

Umar bhai has a plan for revenge against the US. He sends pigeons with radiation tablets attached to their feet all over Usa. The plan is to confuse the bomb squads and then detonate a real nuclear bomb amidst the chaos. Now Viz knows about this plan. So he informs the FBI to ignore the pigeons. He also learns that Nirupama's boss had sold the bomb to a terrorist. They hack the company laptop and learn the money was transferred to a Nigerian. Along with the FBI, everyone reaches at the Nigerian’s residence and kill him. Nirupama states that the bomb has a mobile phone and will detonate when it gets a call from someone. Umar bhai is almost about to call on the bomb phone. Nirupama thinks and immediately covers the bomb with a radio box which acts as a Faraday shield and avoids signals to penetrate. Umar calls but gets ‘call unreachable’ message and is frustrated. He then tries calling the Nigerian who is actually dead by now. Viz takes the call and says that your Nigerian is dead. Umar bhai is double frustrated. The movie ends. Umar bhai is kept alive for a sequel.
