Sidharth Malhotra kidnaps grooms and romances Parineeti Chopra in Jabariya Jodi trailer

The Bihar-set film is directed by Prasanth Singh and written by Sanjeev K Jha 

Published: 01st July 2019

The trailer of Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra’s Jabariya Jodi is out. Directed by Prasanth Singh, the romantic-comedy satirises the groom-kidnapping menace in Bihar.

“There are three types of matchmaking in Bihar,” begins a voiceover in the trailer: “‘Arranged Jodi’ — for the courageous ones; ‘Love Jodi’ — for the lucky ones; and ‘Jabariya Jodi’ — for the greedy ones.” 

We are then introduced to Abhay Singh (Sidharth), a local thug who abducts dowry-seeking grooms and marries them off at gunpoint. Drawing deep puffs from his chillum and sporting an ‘Om’ tattoo, Sidharth looks all set to break his urban-centric image (the actor hasn't been brown-faced much vis-a-vis Hrithik Roshan in Super 30, though the accent sounds a bit clipped-on). 

Almost a minute into the trailer, we meet Parineeti as the headstrong Babli Yadav. Her father, predictably played by Sanjay Mishra, is looking to get her married, though Babli seems more interested in Abhay. The twist? Abhay is focused on his MLA candidature and is least interested in settling down, as informs Sidekick™ Aparshakti Khurrana (cue: a customary Kamariya Hilela remix and shots of bhang glasses clinking). 

Jabadiya Jodi is shot in real locations in Uttar Pradesh. The supporting cast includes Jaaved Jafferi, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Neeraj Sood and Sharad Kapoor. The film is scheduled to release on August 2.
