TEST DRIVE Trailer: Demure housewife Nimrat Kaur turns gritty army officer
There have been several films around army men and several such topics have been touched upon by several filmmakers. We even saw a TV show on army officer, played by Shah Rukh Khan in his struggling days way back in 90s. But for the first we will witness a web series that too portraying a female army officer as central protagonist in Nagesh Kukunoor’s ‘THE TEST DRIVE’ made under Ekta Kapoor’s ALT Balaji banner.
While it will begin streaming from April 25, 2017, the first trailer of the same was unveiled today, starring Nimrat Kaur, Atul Kulkarni, Juhi Chawla, Rahul Dev in pivotal roles. The plot revolves around Nimrat’s character, who plays a gritty and focused most elite combat force of Indian Army. And she is the only woman in an all-boys camp. Throughout the trailer we witness Nimart, being a female, facing the challenge to prove her mettle, potential and worthiness required for an army officer. Nimrat goes through rigorous training, faces flak from seniors, faces gender discrimination & blatant sexism in the army, her male counterparts take a dig at her however she doesn’t lose her spirit and hence the web series is known as ‘The Test Drive’
After playing demure beautiful housewife in two successful films THE LUNCHBOX and AIRLIFT, Nimrat Kaur turns a tough army officer, who is determined to be ‘Commando’ as she hints in one of the dialogues.
Juhi Chawla plays a defense minister, while Rahul Dev an army colleague, whereas Atul Kulkarni is essaying the role of a stringent senior officer in this web series.
It is certainly a refreshing change as far as the concept is concerned and Nimrat Kaur has got role of a lifetime to prove her caliber as an actor. Well we await for the show now.
