Ravinder Grewal, who was last seen as Judge Singh in 2015-movie ‘Judge Singh LLB’ is all set to don the doctor’s coat now. His new movie, ‘Dangar Doctor Jelly’, will hit the screens this Diwali, scilicet October 19th. The trailer of the movie was released yesterday and is close to touch 4 Lakh views on YouTube. At the time of writing this article, the trailer is #3 on the list of Trending videos on the same platform.
One can understand from the trailer and the title of the movie that it revolves around the life of Dr. Jelly (Ravinder Grewal), who is playing the role of a veterinary doctor in the movie. His patients, i.e., the animals, have been personified in the movie. Such an element is the first of its kind in the Punjabi movie industry.
An intriguing face in the Punjabi videos, Sara Gurpal, who made her acting debut in this year’s blockbuster movie, ‘Manje Bistre’, is amongst the leads in the movie. She will be joined by Geet Gambhir, Nisha Bano and Rajiv Thakur as the other actors in the movie. Tried and tested faces in the Punjabi movie industry, B.N. Sharma, Karamjit Anmol, Sardar Sohi, Hobby Dhaliwal and Gurmeet Sajan will be seen playing pivotal roles in the movie.
The trailer, in itself, leaves the impression that audiences are going to experience a laugh riot this Diwali. The movie seems to be an out and out comedy movie with a hint of romance in it, more of a love triangle. Atharv Baluja, who has earlier worked with Grewal in his all his movies, has directed the movie. The movie is produced by Ohri Productions, Anil Arora and Shivoham Media.
The movie has already undergone a patch of controversy in relation to its name. The original name of the movie, ‘Dangar Doctor’, was found offensive to the Punjab Veterinary Officers’ Association. Citing the same thing in mind, the word Jelly was added to the title by the concerned authorities.
Now, when the air around the movie is clear, one can expect it to thrive in both critical and commercial facets of the cinema. With the trailer already being a topic of discussion amongst the audiences, the movie is expected to receive a bumper opening. It will also be aided by the festive season. The audiences would be looking forward to watching a comical Dr. Jelly operate this Diwali.
