Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh, and Fatima Sana Shaikh starrer Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari trailer were released on Wednesday. The film is all set to have a Diwali release.
The film showcases the journey of the three characters in which Manoj Bajpayee plays a detective who investigates potential grooms on behalf of the girl’s family but gets in the way of one potential match. Meanwhile, Diljit Dosanjh’s character of an eligible bachelor vows to get back at him by hitting on his sister, played by Fatima Sana Shaikh.
The two characters come together and have brilliant comic timing, as humorous wordplay and quirky exchanges follow. Diljit’s character, who is in line to take over his father’s dairy business, frequently makes references to milk and milk products.
In one of the dialogues of the film, he says, “Tujh jaisi ladki ka haath lagna matlab ek kilo doodh mein se 10 kilo paneer nikalna (finding a girl like you is like getting 10 kilos of paneer out of just one kilo of milk).”
The director of the film Abhishek Sharma had compared the film’s tone to the films of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee.
In a statement, he had said, “The film is set in the 90s. We have Manoj sir playing a wedding detective, who does a background check of grooms, which was a norm during those times. There was a time when there was no mobile phone or social media and people had to deal with everything physically. It is very much in the vein of films made by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee. It is a clean family-comedy. It is a funny film but not slapstick. It is a social satire.”
Apart from the three main leads, the film also casts Annu Kapoor, Manoj Pahwa, Seema Pahwa, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Nehha Pendse, Manuj Sharma, Neeraj Sood, Abhishek Banerjee, Vijay Raaz, Karishma Tanna, Vanshikha Sharma among others.
