When you have veteran actors like Rishi Kapoor and Paresh Rawal working together certainly you have high expectations from the film. But the trailer of PATEL KI PUNJABI SHAADI only dampens your spirit all thanks to its lame jokes and done-to-death punch lines.
PATEL KI PUNJABI SHAADI shows the cultural and lifestyle diversity between the Punjabis (Rishi Kapoor) and the Gujjus (Paresh Rawal). These two unlikely people are neighbours and thanks to the vast difference between their cultures they hardly get along.
In the middle of all the chaos caused due to the differences between these families, Rishi’s son (Vir Das) falls in love with Paresh Rawal’s daughter (Payal Ghosh) and now whether they end up together or not form the crux of the film’s story.
None of the punchlines used in the trailer evokes any laughter in fact few jokes like ‘Do teen gaali ke liye apna gender change karwa loon’ are not even original and has been lifted blatantly.
To sum it up Rishi Kapoor’s acting and Paresh Rawal’s straight-faced comedy are the only saving grace in the entire trailer. Apart from that there’s nothing exciting about this trailer.
