As promised, the trailer of Shoojit Sircar’s much-awaited Gulabo Sitabo, starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan, got released. We all know that the producers have directly gone for digital release on Amazon Prime Video. Due to the lockdown imposed by the COVID pandemic, it had to skip theaters.
Setting precedent in the Bollywood industry, Gulabo Sitabo will premiere globally on June 12, when it debuts on Amazon Prime Video. The announcement had come a week ago.
The trailer of Gulabo Sitabo is two-minutes-forty-seconds long. It presents the tale of two protagonists – the landlord Mirza who is passionate about his old ‘haveli’ and his tenant Banke.
The trailer of Gulabo Sitabo takes its audiences in the dilapidated haveli of Lucknow. They are treated to weird and whacky Lucknowi comedy promising to be a “quirky tale of two slimy scheming foxes in a game of one-upmanship, each one attracting other members to their clan and each one with an agenda of his own.”
The action in trailer starts with Mirza the owner of Fatima Mahal in Lucknow stealing bulbs from his tenant’s Baankey’s (Ayushmann Khurrana) room. The love-hate relationship between them has fostered for many years. Now Mirza wants Baankey either to pay more rent or vacate while Bankey is not ready for either.
But Baankey is scheming to put forth a claim to the Fatima Mahal. Since there is no heir to Mirza’s property, Baankey who does not have a father plans to let Mirza adopt him.
In the end, Mirza decides to take the legal route with the entry of Vijay Raaz. The audience is treated to laugh riot which is sure to take off teh quarantine blues.
Sr. Bachhan also took to Twitter to announce the launch of the Gulabo Sitabo trailer. Check it out what he has to say
