- Pagalpanti releases on November 22
- The film is directed by Anees Bazmee
- It also features Arshad Warsi, Kriti Kharbanda and Pulkit Samrat
The trailer of Pagalpanti, the ensemble cast of which includes Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Arshad Warsi, Ileana D'Cruz, Kriti Kharbanda, Pulkit Samrat and Urvashi Rautela, dropped on the internet on Tuesday. Going by the three-minute clip, the film neither has humour nor a plot. The disclaimer in the beginning - "Dimag mat lagana kyuki inme hai nahin" - sets the expectation for the trailer and by extension the film. In Pagalpanti, three nobodies decide to fool two gangsters to become rich. Their girlfriends help them in this task, which forms the film's plot. Pagalpanti is backed by the makers of Welcome, No Entry, Singh Is King and Ready - all of were well-received by cinephiles. But the fate of Pagalpanti appears to be quite different.
PS: In sync with the trend of recreating old songs, the makers of Pagalpanti have incorporated the revised version of Tum Par Hum Hai Aatke from Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya.
