'Jabariya Jodi' Movie Trailer: Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra starrer film touches the topic of 'forced marriages'.
Sid-Parineeti duo is back after five years since their last release 'Hasee Toh Phasee'.
'Jabariya Jodi' is based on the concept of 'Pakadwa Vivah' (forced marriage) which was quite prevalent in Bihar. It is a practice in which the groom is kidnapped by the bride’s family and forced into marriage. And to do this a proper gangs functions, who abducts bridegroom.
The trailer introduces Sidharth Malhotra a.k.a Abhay Singh plays the role of the gang leader who abducts the bridegroom and forcefully does their marriage, hence making the couple 'Jabariya Jodi', forced couple. And wants to leave this profession and wants to join politics.
On the other side, we are introduced to a vibrant, daring and bubbly Parineeti Chopra who falls for Abhay and wants to marry him but he rejects Parineeti.
Interestingly, Parineeti doesn't give up and plans to abduct Abhay and forcefully wants to marry him.
Since few years Bollywood has shown massive interest in telling the story of a small town which touches socio relevant topics with blending humor in it, Jabariya Jodi also looks the same.
The film's concept is unique and Sidharth has never done a character based on a small town. A few years ago, a film was released Antardwand which also spoke about forced marriage but it was not a mainstream film which makes Jabariya Jodi standout.

One more positive thing about the trailer is in spite of film based on Bihar, the actors are not forced to use the cliched Bihari accent which we can see in the recent trailer of 'Super 30' too where Hrithik's accent doesn't look natural.
The film is filled with some quirky one-liners such as Rukavat Ke Liye Khed Hai, Tumara Kidnap pre-paid hai (which literally translates to sorry for the inconvenience but your kidnapping is pre-planned).
Bollywood's obsession with Punjabi songs are quite relevant in this film also, despite the film being based on Bihar, It features a glimpse of the hit Punjabi number Thekeya Te Nit Kharke.
The film also stars Jaaved Jaaferi, Aparshakti Khurana, Sanjay Mishra, Sheeba Chadha, Neeraj Sood, Gopal Dutt, Chandan Roy Sanyal, and Ruslaan Mumtaz. Elli Avram and Alankrita Sahai will reportedly have special dance numbers in the film. The film has been shot in several locations in north India including Lucknow, Barabanki, and Raebareli.
Directed by debutant director Prashant Singh who has assisted in films like Tanu Weds Manu and Ranjhana, the film is set to hit theatres on August 2.
