The first trailer for 5 Weddings, starring Nargis Fakri and Rajkummar Rao has been released. The movie is directed by Namrata Singh Gujral and also stars, Bo Derek, Candy Clark and Anneliese Van Der Pol. It is going to be released on August 24 2018. The first look for the movie shows a writer coming to India for a wedding and research on Transgenders for an article, and how she falls in love with a police man. It shows the many misconceptions about India and wedding that Shania Dhaliwal has and how they’re corrected by Harbhajan. It also shows the conflict between her desire to know more about the stories of the transgender women who dance in Indian weddings, and growing love for Harbhajan, who is trying to stop her from doing so.
The movie looks beautiful, and Nargis, who hasn’t impressed the Indian audiences with her acting much, at least not since, Madras Cafe, looks very charming and natural, with out seeming to come across as pretending to act. Rajkummar Rao, however, is the stand out as usual and even though this is not a challenging role for him, it also looks like the actor had a lot of fun during the shooting of the project.
Nargis hasn’t had the kind of breakout success in Bollywood as many had expected from her after the release of Rockstar, and she has relegated herself to supporting turns in movies. Rajkummar, on the other hand has become one of the most sought after actors in Bollywood. His performances in movies like Trapped, Newton, Bareilley Ki Barfi were all critically acclaimed and also loved by the audiences. He is currently shooting his next movie, Mental Hai Kya, with Queen Co-star, Kangana Ranaut. The movie also seems poised toward a success for both actors, who made their name with Queen.
