Romantic dramas, comedies and family films have made a strong comeback this year in Hindi cinema. The success of films like Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, SatyaPrem Ki Katha have also proven that people are loving heartland stories. Vicky Kaushal and Manushi Chhillar are set to bring The Great Indian Family, and the film’s trailer promises a story that is a combination of these all.
Vicky Kaushal starrer The Great Indian Family trailer OUT
After introducing his fun and loving character of Bhajan Kumar, Vicky unveiled TGIF trailer on Tuesday. Set in a fictional town of Balrampur, the film tells the story of Bhajan aka Ved Vyas Tripathi. He is a much loved local bhajan singer, belonging to a Pandit family. While he gets all the love and adulation, romance in his life is missing due to his image. And all hell breaks lose when a mysterious letter reveals that Ved is actually a Muslim by birth. The commotion that ensues promises to be the ‘biggest confusion of the year’. It is filled with comedy, drama and romance.
Watch The Great Indian Family trailer here:
Vicky seems so comfortable and in his zone in the fun character of Bhajan. The actor got to show his comic side in Govinda Naam Mera last year, and with TGIF, he gets that chance again. The trailer has Vicky going through a roller coaster of emotions and he portrays each of them convincingly. From the street smart small town boy to a lovelorn aashiq and a man shunned by his own family, he does it all amazingly.
As for his leading lady Manushi, the actress’ character isn’t revealed much in the trailer. Although her look is contrastingly different from the period look in her debut film Samrat Prithviraj. How she fits into the story will be something to watch out for. The family dynamics will play the biggest role in the film. While the ensemble cast boasts impressive names, how it turns out on screen, remains to be seen.
Along with Vicky and Manushi, the film also stars Manoj Pahwa, Kumud Mishra, Sadiya Siddiqui, Alka Amin, Srishti Dixit and Bhuvan Arora. Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and produced by Yash Raj Films, TGIF will release on September 22, 2023.
