Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar has been subverting expectations, ever since its announcement. This Yash Raj movie has Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra together for the third time since their debut. The film has been pushed since 2018 to avoid clashing with other movies from the actors or the production house. Last week, finally, we saw the first look along with the trailer for the film with the release date as 20th March. However, due to the current circumstances, it has been pushed again with no confirmed date.
Dibakar Banerjee is considered a celebrated storyteller who has given us stories that range from a comedic-satire like Khosla Ka Ghosla to a thriller like Shanghai. Even his stories in Netflix anthology films have impressed us all. Dibakar Banerjee is returning to the Bollywood big screen after a long time. His last project, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, was a thriller as well and received favorable reviews. The fact that this thriller is written by Dibakar Banerjee and Varun Grover has certainly piqued our interest. The trailer has gotten us even more excited.
We see Sandeep Kaur (Parineeti Chopra) running away from a building and approaching Pinky Dahia (Arjun Kapoor), requesting his help to escape Delhi and are attacked. From there begins their roller-coaster journey as they travel to the mountains near the India-Nepal border. While the trailer suggests that Pinky has been asked to kill Sandeep, we would love to be proved wrong.
Helping them while they figure out their escape plan is a lovely couple played by Raghubir Yadav and Neena Gupta, who has a penchant for achaar and stinging nettle sabzi. We can see that they might have a more significant role to play and cannot wait to see more. The film also stars Jaideep Ahlawat, who has become Bollywood’s favorite guy for intense baddie roles.
The movie gives us a glimpse into a clash between urban India and rural Bharat. A line in the trailer defines Arjun’s character perfectly, “Lakshan policewaale, kaam choron waale.” In the trailer, he mentions that he is an officer from the Anti-Terrorist Cell of Haryana Police. We know better than to take that at face value.
The love-hate dynamic is really performed well by the duo in the past, the trailer proves that we will see more of that in the movie. Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar will be Arjun Kapoor’s 10th movie, and in the time that he has been here, he has tried almost all the genres. Both the actors have commented that it wasn’t simple preparing for their roles in this movie. The movie is said to be so relatable that it could happen to anyone. We would have to wait and watch how that plays out. If you are eagerly waiting for the movie like us, you can listen to one of the songs from the movie right here.
