Director Pushpendra Nath Misra’s tale of a struggling writer [Siddiqui] and an corrupt cop under pressure to save his job promises to be one laughter riot
By Mayur Lookhar
Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has turned 46 today [19, May, 2020]. It was a perfect occasion to launch the trailer of his next Ghoomketu (2020), that is set to have a world premiere on 22 May on Zee5. The teaser, that was launched a few days earlier, showed a glimpse of the comedy.
Roll back to the teaser and we saw Ghoomketu [Nawazuddin Siddiqui] filing a complaint over his missing film script. The trailer today gave us a clearer idea of the story. Directed by Pushpendra Nath Misra, Ghoomketu is the story of a struggling writer Ghoomketu [Siddiqui] and a corrupt cop [played by Kashyap]. While the struggling Ghoomketu is left with little money to survive for just a month in Mumbai, the corrupt cop has a month to prevent being transferred to a godforsaken place. The cop has been ordered to find the missing person who shares his name with Siddiqui’s character.
While we don’t see in the trailer, but we can safely assume that Kashyap’s character will use Ghoomketu to save his job. Remember, the cop hasn’t been provided with the missing person’s photo, so one can safely assume that the corrupt cop will project Siddiqui as the missing Ghoomketu.
The likes of Ranveer Singh, Sonakshi Sinha, Amitabh Bachchan are also seen in the trailer. We see Siddiqui voice for Singh and Sinha. Thus we presume them to be playing characters from Ghoomketu’s missing script. Ragini Khanna appears to be playing Ghoomketu’s wife or is she is another one of his imaginations?
Siddiqui and Kashyap are the leads, but seasoned actors like Ila Arun and Raghubir Yadav are always a treat to watch. The trailer stands out for innovative story, humour, fun-filled dialogues, especially the corrupt cop’s son telling his father, “you take a lot of bribe’.
In the lockdown period, people crave for a comedy and Pushpendra Nath Misra’s Ghoomketu promises to be one laughter riot.
