After changing from 'Shaukeen' to 'The Shaukeens', the makers recently released the trailer of this film. Though the trailer gave us a good feeling, we're not quite sure if it will turn out to be any different from the usual coming-of-age Bollywood comedies. Let's take a look at what we saw in three odd minutes of this trailer. Starring Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Piyush Mishra and Lisa Haydon, this film will also feature Akshay Kumar in a cameo appearance. Directed by Abhishek Sharma, this film is scheduled for release on November 7th this year.
Claps for: Not having the usually expected characters in coming-of-age comedies. The fact that this film has elderly characters playing leads in a film like this is refreshing enough for us. The trailer gives the right amount of hints to prove that this unusual formula can be funny, and maybe funnier than youth oriented characters. Lisa Haydon looked stunning and is expected to look super-glamorous throughout the film. Just when you thought everything is working for them but it lacks star power, enters Akshay Kumar with all his might! So we say claps for having Humour, Glamour and star power in check and clear enough in the trailer of this film.
Slaps for: The plot line. With the trailer comes a certain amount of the plot and we didn't seem too happy with whatever was understood in those three odd minutes. So, 3 old men find an attractive young lady in Mauritius who will be impressed by the one giving her a chance to meet Akshay Kumar. We have a feeling that the plot of the film may die out half-way through the movie, but then again we guess Akshay Kumar will come to the rescue. Or will he??
What we can expect: We don't expect this film to be a flop; it'll definitely be an entertainer considering the fact that it has all the elements required to please Indian audiences.
