The first trailer for Karwaan, starring Irrfan Khan, Dulquer Salmaan, Mithila Parkar and Kriti Kharbanda. It is directed by Akarsh Khurana, and is going to be released on August 3 2018. The trailer introduces the character of Dulquer, named, Avinash, who gets the news that his father has died, and then realizes that his body has been mixed up with someone else. He, and his friends, played by Irrfan Khan and Mithila Parkar, will have to travel to Cochi to get him. This is a road movie, and it seems to one of those comedy drama’s that are well acted, and also emotionally potent, without being pretentious.
This is going to be the Bollywood debut of Dulquer Salmaan, who has primarily worked in Malyalam films. And in the first look of his debut, he looks immensely promising and confident. This is going to be another movie that Irrfan Khan shot and completed before his Cancer diagnoses, and he is, as always, impressive and totally attuned with his character on screen. Mithila Parkar also seems to be holding her ground between the two actors. The direction looks fresh and the locations authentic. The cinematography also looks pretty without being overwhelming. But, its the dialogues and exchanges between the characters that feel the most real, and the actors do a commendable job in making us believe them. Karwaan looks like the ideal movie to watch with friends, and enjoy it. It is modest, but if the script is well written, people usually respond to movies that could have been called niche projects but are now getting exposure as people change their tastes according to the progressing society.
Bollywood has had a sudden change, where people have begun liking content based movies, and with the success of projects like Piku, Hichki, Tumhari Sulu, Raazi, it looks likt Karwaan could be a breakout too.
