'Plan A Plan B' trailer: Riteish-Tamannaah lead cliché romantic comedy
Netflix India dropped the trailer for its upcoming rom-com Plan A Plan B on Tuesday (September 13). The Shashanka Ghosh directorial presents a story of a matchmaker and a divorce lawyer who absolutely cannot stand each other. The film will explore the possibility of the two eventually coming around and ending up falling in love. Here's a breakdown of the trailer.
Why does this story matter?
- Plan A Plan B stars actors Riteish Deshmukh and Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead.
- Deshmukh essays the role of a divorce lawyer while the latter appears as a psychologist/matchmaker who often finds herself oscillating between rooting for love when it comes to others and wanting to find a suitable man for herself.
- The film marks the debut collaboration of the two actors.
Trailer makes you question if opposites actually attract
The trailer opens with Kosty (Deshmukh) proposing a deal to Nirali (Bhatia) saying, "Plan A, you get people married. Plan B, I handle their divorce cases." Kosty, a cynical divorce lawyer, believes that "marriage is a punishment," whereas Bhatia, a matchmaker who is single herself, is all for love and relationships. The trailer makes you question if they will ever set their differences aside.

Film doesn't seem to offer anything new, tugs at clichés
While the pairing of Deshmukh and Bhatia in a rom-com explores new avenues, the trailer doesn't offer anything we've not seen before. Moreover, Poonam Dhillon who appears as Bhatia's mother in the film feels like just another filter-less character who gives away unsolicited advice. Despite the drawbacks seen in the trailer, we remain hopeful that the film might offer something refreshing.
Details about release date, actors' thoughts on the film
Bhatia called the film a "wild ride" and said, "It is a dynamic movie that will appeal to every type of audience and I can't wait for its launch on Netflix." On the other hand, Deshmukh admitted to having a "soft corner" for comedy and promised that the film would have many "twists." Plan A Plan B will release on Netflix on September 30.
