Yes, the trailer reveals the basic plot of the film, and the audiences first get introduced to Shahid Kapoor, a cop who can beat the rogues to a pulp. But the illusion of him a la Salman Khan of Dabangg or Akshay Kumar of Rowdy Rathore fades when he confesses to the Police Commissioner: Main Inspector nahin hun. However, the actor continues with his super cop duties, which obviously lands him into trouble, and what follows is a roller coaster ride.
The hero also has his heroine enjoying the ride with him, and the pretty Barfi! wonder, Ileana D’Cruz as Kajal, comes to the picture. Funnily, when the girl asks Shahid, the cop: “Sir, aap ladne se dartey hain kya?”, the smart aleck answers: “Kya hai na Kajal..Agar chehre pe chot lag gayi, toh career shuru hone se pehle khatam ho jayega”.
Directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, the movie seems much like his earlier comedies. Mistaken identities usually play a key role in his comic capers, and Phata Poster Nikhla Hero offers a new twist to the same angle. Is it going to be interesting?
We hope it is as zany and fun a film from the makers of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, and Andaz Apna Apna. Phata Poster Nikhla Hero will hit the screens on September 20. Watch its first official trailer here:
