The trailer of Arjun Patiala is finally out. A meta-narrative take on cinema, the trailer tries to showcase the perils associated with film-making as a medium especially when the budget of the film is low and yet can have a star cast with the likes of Sunny Leone in a “mandatory item number”.
Kriti Sanon and Diljit Dosanjh starrer plays out like a spoof of a “policewali” Hindi film, number 245 to be precise. Arjun Patiala is the 245th Hindi cinema cop drama that parodies all cop-police procedural films ever made.
Romance, action, drama and all that can go wrong while filming a masala entertainer is the length and breadth of the trailer. Makers of the film shared the trailer on social media.
Rohit Jugraj, director and Diljit Dosanjh are collaborating for the third time after Sardaar Ji and Sardaar Ji 2. The fresh pairing of Diljit and Kriti looks great and so does the video game reference, cute cop and drama heroine sequences.
Despite a trailer about everything, nothing of the plot is revealed. It looks like Arjun Patiala is based on the procedure of film making.
Kriti Sanon plays a news reporter Ritu Randhawa while Varun Sharma is Onida Singh, so named because his mother wanted an Onida TV but got him instead.
At the end of the trailer, Diljit asks a fellow policeman if the film will be a hit, to which the latter replies, ” No, C****** banana padega!”
Directed by Rohit Jugraj and written by Ritesh Shah and Sandeep Leyzell, Arjun Patiala is slated for a July 26 release.
