The Punjabi flavour in the movies of this Gujarati director does not seem to go away, but it’s no harm until the spice has remained intact. Vipul Amrutlal Shah, who has delivered iconic romantic comedy Namastey London, is back with his next rom-com Namaste England. Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor starrer movie will be another addition to Vipul’s directorial with a backdrop of Punjab, after London Dreams, Commando, Namastey London, among others.
Another quintessential Bollywood movie that flourishes through the landscapes of India and Europe, Namaste England is a love story that starts from Punjab, moving to Ludhiana, Amritsar, Dhaka and keeps the zest sailing all the way to Paris and finally to London. The movie has a refreshing fragrance where the story traces the journey of two individuals Jasmeet and param.
Talking about his experience of shooting in Punjab again, the director shares, “This time shooting for Namaste England was very challenging. I have shot for ‘Namaste London’, ‘London Dreams’ and some portion of ‘Commando’ there but my aim this time was to showcase Punjab in a very different way. I somehow wanted to show Punjab as the most beautiful and conducive place for a love story to naturally happen. So I wanted to create a world so poetic in where a young girl and guy will fall in love. The production team has done a wonderful job in making every location of Punjab look really good in movie that anyone would eventually fall in love in that set up. We have shot in more than 100 locations of Punjab and that’s how the film is place. It took us almost a month to scout all the locations.. and there were times we traveled 3-4 hours at stretch to just shoot a particular shot at that location.”
With the peppy songs like Bhare Bazaar, Dhoom Dhadaka, and Proper Patola, the film is set to give the audiences their party anthems. The intriguing trailer endows a light and refreshing promise to the viewers.
Produced by Jayantilal Gada (pen) and Reliance Entertainment present in association with BlockBuster Movie Entertainers, Namaste England re-unites the Ishaqzaade Jodi and is slated to release on October 19, 2018.
