Think of all the cliches of a mainstream Hindi romance set in Punjab, and you’ll find them in the trailer of Vipul Shah’s Namaste England. The film stars Arjun Kapoor and Parineeta Chopra, who fall in love, do stunts with tractors, dance in the mustard fields, dance alone, dance together, dance with dancers in the background.
Things seem to be going perfect for the couple when there is a crisis. Kapoor’s character has to go to London to work and earn his living. He has chapped lips and he looks dishevelled. Chopra joins him, and now they only wear dresses and suits. The trailer of Namaste England raises a few questions, and most urgent among them is why does it look like a fan-made mash-up of Half Girlfriend and Badrinath Ki Dulhania, or what exactly does Arjun Kapoor think when he says out his lines?
The film will release on 19 October.
