Tulsi: Mathrudevobhava is a 2008 Bollywood film. The film is directed by Ajay Kumar and stars Manisha Koirala and Irrfan Khan. The film is an official remake of 1993 Telugu language film Mathru Devo Bhava


Tulsi tells the story of Tulsi (Manisha Koirala), married to a drunkard Suraj (Irrfan Khan). The couple is blessed with four kids. One evening, while Suraj is away, his friend (Yashpal Sharma) tries to molest Tulsi. When Suraj gets to know of it, he beats Yashpal black and blue. A furious Yashpal swears revenge. In the meanwhile, Tulsi is diagnosed with blood cancer. Yashpal attacks Suraj and murders him. A distraught Tulsi now decides to get her kids adopted by different families before she's gone.



The film fared badly at the boxoffice. Media described the low publicity and zero pre-release hype as shocking as it was actress Manisha Koirala's comeback as the lead since Mumbai Express (2005).[1]
