From past few days, makers of upcoming movie 'Udta Punjab' were strategically releasing posters unveiling characters from the film. Things worked as people eagerly started waiting for the trailer and now the wait is over.
The performance packed trailer has been released and from first frame to last one, Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt hit all the right chords to make it a quirky one. Trailer do live up to the expectations.
It starts with a warning that Punjab is slowly transforming into Mexico, which is famous for drug addict youths. The story revolves around four main characters viz. Shahid Kapoor – a drug-addict rockstar, Kareena Kapoor – a doctor, Alia Bhatt – a migrant worker and Diljit Dosanjh – a Cop.
From the first shot, it becomes evident that Shahid Kapoor is back with a bang. Just like Haider her looks crazy, hot and uber cool in the intro shot. The next few scenes establish him as the troubled Punjabi rockstar. Then comes Alia Bhatt, her accent does the job of convincing the audience. Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh also come with promising characters.
With the words 'Drugs di maa di' on its poster, it is hardly a surprise that the film's trailer is riddled with expletives and it wouldn't be wrong to expect more profanities in the film. But for once, they do seem to be the demands of the script.
Produced by Balaji Balaji Motion Pictures, in association with Phantom Pictures, the film has been directed by Abhishek Chaubey, who has movies like Ishqiya, Maqbool under his name.
Udta Punjab is scheduled to hit the silver screens on June 17, 2016. And it will be difficult for people to wait for so long.
