Vishal Bhardwaj's MATRU KI BIJLEE KA MANDOLA (MKBKM) received 'U/A' certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Interestingly, almost all of his movies got 'A' certificate (except for his directorial debut MAKDEE, which was essentially a children's film).
The film had initially run into censor trouble with Pankaj Kapur's character saying 'Pancho', which, the CBFC felt, sounded like a Hindi expletive. However, much to the director's delight, the 'U/A' rating makes the movie fit for family audiences, including those under 18.
With this film, Bhardwaj is treading off the beaten path into a brighter and funnier zone by diverting from his usual serious cinema.
Says the filmmaker, ''I've always wanted my films to reach out to a wider audience. Finally with MKBKM, not restricted by the 'A' rating, I'll be able to do so. I'd like to thank the CBFC for giving this rating as it's a bright and happy film.''
MATRU KI BIJLEE KA MANDOLA, presented by Fox Star Studios and produced by Vishal Bhardwaj, releases January 11, 2013.
