It is another day and another comedy movie is all set to enthrall the followers of the Punjabi film industry. The movie which is up for release this week is Ksshitij Chaudhary’s ‘Mr & Mrs 420 Returns’, a sequel of ‘Mr & Mrs 420‘ (also directed by Ksshitij Chaudhary). Having successfully directed ‘Golak Bugni Bank Te Batua‘ earlier this year, audiences would be looking up to Chaudhary’s second bout this year.
For all of you who are wondering as to why this movie preview is being uploaded on Monday, the reason behind the same is that the movie will be up for public viewing on this Wednesday, i.e., 15/08/2018. The trailer of this potential laughathon was released more than three weeks ago on the official YouTube channel of Lokdhun Punjabi. At the time of writing this article, it has received in vicinity of seven million views on the same platform.
The movie stars Jassie Gill, Ranjit Bawa, Jaswinder Bhalla, Gurgreet Ghuggi, Payal Rajput, Avantika Hundal, Karamjit Anmol, Anita Devgan, Naresh Kathooria and Gurmeet Saajan in vital roles. Gill, who made his debut in the first part, has retained his position in the sequel as well. A much improved actor now and with a Bollywood debut happening next week, he is likely to attract the audiences to the cinema halls. Moreover, the trio of Bhalla, Ghuggi and Anmol look all in readiness to make this movie a giggling ride for the viewers.
Avantika Hundal, who was last seen in the Punjabi film industry in the first part of this franchise, is making a comeback after four years. The actress is confident that Mr & Mrs 420 Returns will make people laugh their hearts out. Payal Rajput, who gained instant recognition with her debut role in Pankaj Batra’s ‘Channa Mereya’ last year,will be seen in her second movie. In an interview with Punjabi Mania, she let out that the movie will set a new mark in comedy.
Naresh Kathooria, who is playing a vital role in the movie, has also written the script of the movie which is another reason why the audiences are likely to support this movie. Kathooria’s chucklesome writing is well-known to the audiences of Punjab. Rohit Dhiman has edited the movie which is distributed worldwide by Omjee Group.
With songs in the voices of Jassie Gill, Ranjit Bawa and Karamjit Anmol, the music of the movie has already being played amidst the youth. The various songs of the movie have been penned down by Happy Raikoti, Kabal Saroopwali, Khushi, Kuldeep Kandiara and Premjit Dhillon and have been musically directed by Jay K, Gurcharan Singh , R D Beat and Jaison Thind.
Mr & Mrs 420 Returns is produced by Rrupali Gupta under the banner of Friday Russh Motion Pictures. Releasing on the Independence Day, the movie will combat a cut-throat competition at the box-office. Firstly, it will have to take a lead over Mandeep Benipal‘s ‘Dakuaan Da Munda‘ as it has dominated the box-office throughout the country last week. Secondly, it will have to come over Reema Kagti’s ‘Gold’ and Milap Zaveri’s ‘Satyameva Jayate’, especially in Punjab. The prospects of Mr & Mrs 420 Returns achieving both the aforementioned feats are high but it will only be known with confirmation in the days to come. One thing which is likely to work for the movie is that it will enjoy a nine-day first week at the box-office.
