Trailer: Veere Di Wedding – Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania
Since there have been so many requests on doing something similar on ‘Veere Di Wedding‘ like the post of ‘Sanju’s teaser, we had to give in because the requests will keep coming in and believe you me (Rishi Kapoor’s favourite words), we decided to give in before being asked further. So here goes.
Alright, so we have been avoiding doing this post because like we mentioned in a comment, this trailer confused the hell out of us. Confused and shocked us till we felt shacked watching it. Like we were so shocked that we started saying “shacked” instead of “shocked”. Maybe this is what happens to expectations after having waited for so long to see the trailer of this film. About five minutes ago, we have figured it out: the way they created this trailer is just so wrong and misleading.
First, check out the trailer below:
As you can see, they dived straight into the PG-18 stuffs without warning. Whatever happened to huge headlines or wordings right before the trailer starts?
Then, we started thinking about our old lady. She’s going to think that this movie is a fun one because she likes Sonam Kapoor‘s films. She has ‘Khoobsurat’ in every form of portable media that she owns. Yeah, picture it! So now, we were thinking about how we have to make excuses to avoid watching this film with her. Not because we are prude, but because old lady is going to get the shack of her life!
It is the same for all of us, who have seen these ladies from the beginning. Like Sonam and Kareena, this is going to be a whole different experience to see them acting and speaking this way. It’s normal!
That aside, the second problem with this trailer is that a lot of going on for no reason. A lot of overacting, that is. Mainly from Kareena and Swara’s side. Doing a chick film or a film about modern girls is fine, but something is amiss. It doesn’t feel right. It looks fake, forced and wannabe. First half of the trailer is one thing and the other half is another. Such a massive jump.
Again, the trailer could have been different. A nice intro into their lives first instead of diving into the mature stuffs. At this point, it looks like the ‘Hate Story’ series done in a comedy setting with extremely popular actors.
About the ladies in the film, there is definitely something not fitting right. Sonam Kapoor looks tired and Kareena Kapoor looks miscast. What is the deal with the Kapoor grandkids getting miscast these days? For some reason, we keep thinking that this is how Bebola is in real life. This is how she talks and we will be lying if we don’t mention how we keep hearing “Go deep throat” while watching the trailer. Don’t know why, but it happened!
Swara Bhasker is too much, but maybe it’s because she has never been seen in something like this before. Only Shikha Talsania seems to be working and in case you don’t know who she is, she is the daughter of this veteran actor:
Yes, our own desi Hercule Poiroit.
So yes, we are not sure what to think of the trailer because we are still split/split on it. But yes, the trailer could have been much much better. There should have been an intro on these ladies so that we get their characters first because the way this trailer is set, it’s as if the audience have all met these characters before. They want to have mature content, it’s fine. They just need to know how to get to THAT and not just start yapping the F word or the S word as soon as the cameras are on. Speaking of that, it’s funny how Bebola once said that she could never do the type of open role that Vidya Balan did in ‘The Dirty Picture’. Times have changed and desperate times call for desperate measures!
This reminds us when Aamir Khan produced ‘Delhi Belly’, he made it clear that the film wasn’t for kids or for people, who get easily offended. People were prepared to watch that film and were not shocked at all. And it had Imran Khan as one of the heroes with his chocolate boy image.
Based on the title of this film, we thought that it was going to be about someone’s wedding. Had no clue that this was about the S-life of all four characters and then, there’s a wedding happening. It will be interesting to see how this movie will fare at the box office because this is a first of its kind and there isn’t a niche audience for this kind of modern mainstream cinema yet. Let’s hope the best for the team of ‘Veere Di Wedding‘ and also hope that the film is better than this trailer.
