Welcome back to the extraordinarily fraught world of Khalujan (Naseeruddin Shah) and Babban (Arshad Warsi) in Dedh Ishqiya. Keeping the twosome company this time are Begum Para (Madhuri Dixit) and Munira (Huma Qureshi).
The trailer begins with Khalujan and Babban being released from a prison. They go to the manor of Begum Para, a woman of fine taste in aesthetics, dance, music and poetry. Alongside the Begum is the beautiful Munira. Thereafter begins the love story and we are told of the seven stages of love.
“Isme toh sex hai hi nahin,” rues Babban. So the terrific twosome tweaks the stages: Dilkashi-sex, Uns-sex, Mohabbat-sex and so on.
Enter other characters to ruin the duo’s romantic idyll. Vijay Raaj is the sword-wielding, slaphappy baddie. Things go for bad to worse and the twosome finds themselves at the seventh stage of love: Maut.
The story of Dedh Ishqiya is by Dirab Farooqui; screenplay is by Vishal Bhardwaj and Abhishek Chaubey.
Directed by Abhishek Chaubey and produced by Vishal Bhardwaj, Dedh Ishqiya is set to release on January 10, 2014.
