Subhash Ghai's '36 Farmhouse' trailer promises crime, comedy, social commentary
The trailer for Subhash Ghai's comeback film, 36 Farmhouse, is here. And, by the looks of the short trailer, we are in for a jam-packed ensemble comedy with elements of social commentary on greed, class disparity, and romance. As the title suggests, the story surrounds a certain 36 Farmhouse and a lot of duping and cheating attempts. Here's our trailer breakdown.
Inheritance dispute of farmhouse is at center of tale
The clip opens with a lawyer telling Vijay Raaz's character he can't inherit his mother Lady Padmini Rajsingh's farmhouse alone. The property has to be divided equally between him and his two younger brothers. On the flip side, we see Sanjay Mishra's character enter the farmhouse as a cook, seemingly after fleeing from his village home. The contrast between the classes is made apparent.
Soon, all characters—including Barkha Singh and Amol Parashar—pile up at the farmhouse. While Singh's character is Rajsingh's granddaughter, we find Parashar's role is the son of Mishra's character who has also entered the house with a false identity. Meanwhile, a crime gets committed and all residents of 36 Farmhouse come under the radar of suspicion. Find out what happens next in the film.
'36 Farmhouse' hits ZEE5 on January 21
Trailer gives '36 China Town' feels in concept, premise
Given the ensemble cast, a possible murder plot, police's suspicion of all main characters, the story of this upcoming flick seems to mirror that of the 2006 Abbas-Mustan movie, 36 China Town. Yes, even the name is similar. We can draw sure-shot similarities only when the venture premieres on ZEE5 this January 21. Apart from helming the film, Ghai has also penned the story.
Veteran filmmaker is notably turning music director with this
One more feather in the veteran filmmaker's cap for 36 Farmhouse is him turning music director for the first time. In our album review, we gave the two songs—Mohabbat and Mind Your Business—an average ranking of 3.5 stars. The main cast list also includes Flora Saini and Ashwini Kalsekar. It has been backed by ZEE Studios and Ghai's Mukta Arts.
