Seems like Ayushmann Khurrana has got the Midas touch. The same has happened with his next film Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’s trailer which has got us awestruck! Read on…
The trailer of the much awaited Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan featuring Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar in lead roles just popped in and we were thoroughly entertained post seeing the trailer. Besides the entertainment factor, the trailer also had many more aspects to it which make it special. Besides being the FIRST mainstream Bollywood movie showing a gay relationship featuring a leading B-Town actor, SMZS has various other qualities.
Ayushmann Khurrana As The Flag Bearer : When a leading mainstream Bollywood actor like Ayushmann does a film like Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, the expectations as well the exposure to the film are sky-high. He surely has got no limits when it comes to bringing topics away from the league to the silver screen with such grit and determination. Post Dream Girl, we feel like Ayushmann is clearly headed in a direction beyond all inhibitions.
Making A Strong Statement : Whether it be Khurrana wearing a LGBT flag around him or be it the lip-lock towards the trailer’e end, the makers have shown strong statements with how they have made the film and what is the sole purpose of the film, ie, to show the love story of two guys in a very normal way away from all the usual shying away and caricatures.
Away From LGBT Caricatures : We have continued to see LGBT characters in a certain regressive way in Indian cinema from a long time. If the girl is lesbian, she will either be ugly or manly. Similarly, if a guy plays a gay character, he has to be feminine or seen in pink colors. That is exactly why SMZS is super refreshing as it shows the lead characters in a very normal way where two lovers hold their hands and go for drives simply for the love they have for each other. There are no caricatures and they both are macho in themselves.
