Gulabo Sitabo is the latest movie to release on Amazon Prime Video, amidst the COVID-19 lockdown that has forced all cinema halls to shut down in India. Premiering on the platform on June 12, Gulabo Sitabo just got its official trailer, and the movie looks quite interesting. It stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan in the lead roles, and is a quirky family comedy meant for digital audiences. Here are 5 takeaways from Gulabo Sitabo trailer and what you can expect from the movie releasing next month on Prime Video.
Gulabo Sitabo trailer: What to expect
A unique jodi
Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan are collaborating for the first time in a Bollywood movie. The combined expertise, as well as diversity, of their acting skills will be a delight to watch for fans across ages. The older ones rooting for Amitabh, the younger ones for Ayushmann, or even the opposite.
Gulabo Sitabo is based on the real-life story of two puppeteers from UP who would use Gulabo Sitabo as two sister-in-laws who always keep fighting, but can't stay without each other. These puppets were used as tools to show social issues. We could see a similar approach in Gulabo Sitabo, with the two actors playing tenant and landlord.
Content is the biggest thing common between Ayushmann Khurrana and Shoojit Sircar. And, when the two collaborate, alongside Amitabh, the odds are Gulabo Sitabo will offer you a smart and intelligent script with a solid plot.
Shoojit Sircar is known for his intense and interesting climax scenes. Sure enough, we can expect even Gulabo Sitabo to pack in an impactful ending, which might be similar to Sircar's previous works like October, Piku, or Madras Cafe.
Good ol' laughs
The trailer reveals both Ayushmann and Amitabh are in great character portrayals, which have unique accents and styles. Surely, we can expect this to be a hilarious and lighthearted movie; the perfect watch during gloomy lockdown period.
