Caught in a game of one-upmanship, are landlord and tenant Mirza and Baankey. They both scheme and plot their way to winning this battle of wills in the trailer of Gulabo Sitabo that dropped today on Amazon Prime Video.
Mirza (played by Amitabh Bachchan) – a 78-year-old landlord, and Baankey (played by Ayushman Khurrana) are at loggerheads over the latter’s tenancy in a dilapidated mansion in the heart of Lucknow city. In a war of wits, Baankey who is a squatter, primarily, matches the old and dawdling Mirza word for word, and bard for barb.
“A slice of life dramedy set in Lucknow, Gulabo Sitabo shows us Mirza and Baankey, who are unique and unmatched, friend and foe, naughty and smart, little and large – all things required to produce chaos,” a statement from the makers says.
A Rising Sun Films production, Gulabo Sitabo is directed by Shoojit Sircar, written by Juhi Chaturvedi and produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar. Gulabo Sitabo will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on June 12, 2020 worldwide.
