Siddharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra definitely need a win. Siddharth Malhotra tried his hand at various genres (Baar Baar Dekho, Brothers, Ayyari) and Parineeti Chopra's recent Namaste England didn't work well at the box office at all. However, Parineeti's recent but short appearance in Kesari did win some serious hearts. The two are now pairing up together for a fun slash wacky comedy, Jabariya Jodi, set to release August 2, 2019.
The trailer is set in Bihar where Siddharth Malhotra plays a bit of a gangster slash Robin Hood named Abhay Singh who goes after people who are asking for dowry. Parineeti Chopra plays Babli Yadav who is no less gangster. Babli wants to marry Abhay forcibly (erm) while Abhay wants to be an MLA. It all seems a bit out there but given the fact that the film is going to be hopefully a hilarious ride with enough slapstick moments, the plot won't seem that impossible to believe.
Parineeti looks stunning and Siddharth has donned the avatar of a very rural hero which surprisingly suits him as well. The strengths of the film are clearly not in the plot but definitely in the hilarious one-liners and quips. The film stars the talented supported cast of Sanjay Mishra, Aparshakti Khurrana and Javed Jaffrey. Watch the trailer here.
July at the box office will see how Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 and Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao's Mental Hai Kya will fare. Jabariya Jodi will be the first big flick in August and will be released a bit ahead of Eid ul Adha, which means it can bring in good numbers from GCC owing to the long upcoming holidays. Sonakshi Sinha's Khandaani Shafakhaana is also set to release around the same time as Jabariya Jodi. What are your thoughts on the trailer? Let us know in the comments.
