Jayeshbhai Jordaar trailer: Ranveer Singh sheds his larger-than-life character to play a child from the neighbourhood who must overcome his own flaws in order to combat his family and society.
Jayeshbhai Jordaar : Ranveer Singh reprises his role as a Gujarati in Jayeshbhai Jordaar, following his 2013 film Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela. This time, though, he is a married man struggling to save the life of his unborn female kid, rather than wielding a rifle or romancing a beauty from the enemy’s land.
The teaser for the film was published on Tuesday, and it teased a humorous social comedy about Indian families’ desire for a boy child.
Ranveer Singh is introduced as the lanky son of Boman Irani‘s strict village sarpanch and his equally conservative wife, Ratna Pathak Shah, in the trailer. Given that Ranveer’s Jayeshbhai is expecting a girl with his homemaker wife, one thing is clear: if his parents have their way, the child will not be permitted to give birth. How a simple man gains the strength to flee his family with his pregnant wife in order to preserve his child becomes an eye-opening story of resolve and fortitude that is desperately required in the cause of protecting the female child. The film appears to be entertaining, with genuine Gujarati speech and a lot of fun.
A fan reacted to the trailer on YouTube, “I think this film should be dubbed in Gujarati. Ranveer has massive fan following in Gujrat because of Ram Leela. And plus this movie is on a Gujarati guy.”
Anushka Sharma, Ranveer’s Band Baaja Baaraat co-star, had expressed her interest in the scentless soap and the unique message from Jayeshbhai Jordaar a day before the trailer’s release. The “scentless soap is an advanced creation” of their place named Pravingadh, he wrote in the letter, and the women in the area are only allowed to bathe with it. “Why?” he continued. In our culture, such questions are not posed. I would have happily invited you to my home, but you would have had to conceal your face with a veil as soon as you crossed the toll. You won’t be able to view anything after that.
So it’s best if I provide you a peek of Pravingadh life so you may share it with your family at your leisure. For the time being, I’ll send you this traditional soap.” This is a reference to a scene in the trailer where Boman’s sarpanch blames scented soap for sexual harassment in the hamlet. Actor-turned-director Divyang Thakkar makes his directorial debut with Jayeshbhai Jordaar. The film’s music was composed by Vishal–Shekhar and Amit Trivedi. It will be released in theatres on May 13th of this year.
