The first trailer of the upcoming romantic comedy, Comedy Couple, has dropped on the internet. Saqib Saleem and Shweta Basu Prasad play a couple, Deep and Zoya, in the film that does stand-up comedy together on the stage. "The only Indian couple" to do so, they say. But, no relationship is all laughs and smiles. Problems between the two youngsters seem to be surfacing from the fact that the Deep can't stop lying. And Zoya's has childhood issues which relate to her father being a liar. Shweta Basu Prasad Feels India Is Hung Up on the Idea of Fairness.
The funny bits of the film in the trailer does not exactly qualify for funny. Their bit on the stage also has no freshness. At the end of the trailer, a friend of Deep does point out that why is he not funny on stage when is in real life.
However, the emotional pathos of the film looks strong. Shweta and Saqib make for a cute pair. Shweta looks completely immersed in the emotional scenes. The melancholy of the plot might have gravitas. Looking forward to it. Saqib Saleem Reveals He Is Trying to Write a Secret Set of Stand-Up Comedy Since Past Five Years but Couldn’t Complete It.
