Punjab Nahi Jaungi's trailer is out and the love triangle has us hooked

It's got slow-mo running in the rain and everything!
Updated 06 Jul, 2017

The teaser for Punjab Nahi Jaungi had us confused but the trailer looks like going to the cinema may not be such a bad idea!

"When desi meets vilayati" is how the trailer opens up to the rom-com melodrama, starring Humayun Saeed, Mehwish Hayat and Urwa Hocane in the leads.

The film centres around a young man from a rich family in Faisalabad (Humayun Saeed), who is also the hottest eligible bachelor in town, especially after earning the title of the first young lad in the family to have completed his matriculation.

Though Saeed looks a little too grown-up for someone who has just completed 10th grade by Pakistani standards, he does make a pretty slick gabru jawaan.

As the story rolls out, Saeed's character seems to have fallen for a confident, self-aware woman from the urban Karachi (played by Mehwish Hayat).

However, the challenges for both to find a middle ground in their love story extend beyond their family backgrounds and their upbringing.

Urwa Hocane plays the young, attractive Punjabi kuri, who is in awe of Saeed's unabashed romantic moves.

Director of Photography Suleman Razzaq's work looks captivating with the vibrant colour schemes, the loud beats of dhol and your typical, white palace in the backdrop of Punjab's lush green pind.

The movie has a very Sanjay Leela Bhansali-feel to it with its ample use of bright colours, lights and a rich, emotive set.

Looks like a fun watch, enough to leave you feeling mushy on the inside!

So much gaudy make up and hair do. Looks like freshly out of parlour look not representative of common people. Please get real talented common man actors not wooden expression and overrated models. We need more classic movies like Bol that got us applause and international recognition.

Haven't watched Pakistan and or Indian media for quite some while. Happened to click on the video and all I could feel was the style, presentation and depiction of an Indian movie. Are we copying or they are? Or it's just the expectation of the audience that drives the quality of movies produced nowadays?

Urwa and Azfar will be the reason to watch this movie,, saeed and mehwish are just the pretty face with no acting and dancing talent,, what a shame,, why don't Saeed pass the batten to younger guys, why he always want to become hero,, improve ur acting bro,,,

This looks like a Bollywood copy. A mix of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani & most of the Indian Punjabi films
