Mumbai: The Zee Studios in-house production comedy family entertainer on Wednesday lauched the trailer for Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari, starring Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh and Fatima Sana Shaikh.
The film has been slated for a November 13 release in theatres.Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is a social satire, a social commentary on how arranged marriages happen in India; how the match-making process for marriages happen between two families.
Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is a slice of life story set in the 1990s where Suraj Singh Dhillon is your quintessential Punjabi young bachelor who is looking to get hitched to a beautiful girl. He is suave, he is smart, he is handsome and funny – a killer combination! Then, why is he finding it so hard to get hitched?
Talking about the film, director Abhishek Sharma said, “This film captures the innocence of bygone times. There is a certain simplicity in the tone we have used which we hope to remind people of the movies of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee. It is a clean family-comedy. It is a funny film but we have consciously ensured to not tread into slapstick humor. It’s a take on the great Indian wedding ‘milestone’ where the whole family participated and ends up in hilarious situations.”
Playing Goliath to Dosanjh’s David is the stellar Manoj Bajpayee, playing the character of Madhu Mangal Rane, a middle-aged wedding detective from Bombay. A cat and mouse game ensues where both are trying to gain upmanship, eliciting genuine laughs and rib-tickling situations along the way.
The film’s other cast includes names like Annu Kapoor, Manoj Pahwa, Seema Pahwa, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Neha Pendse, Manuj Sharma, Neeraj Sood, Abhishek Banerjee, Vijay Raaz, Karishma Tanna,Vanshika Sharma amongst others.
