Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, Pre-Marriage Residence Switch For The Bride & Groom



Amidst the fun frolic flamboyance fiesta that  is the trailer of Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, the couple in  love , Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt(and we are already in love with this couple in love) comes up with  a  sensational idea to pacify their two warring families: they decide to live with their future in-laws to  test the waters. Ranveer  goes  to Alia’s parents’ Bengali home  and Alia moves in with Ranveer’s  Punjabi parents.

Switch Bharat.

But the  fun begins long before the cultural clash with the two lovebirds sharing a crackling chemistry from the first  frame.Ranveer is boorish and brash, Alia is  elegant and poised.  Hell, this is a jodi made in heaven with lots  of twists  turns  and fun encounters.

We have seen  Alia  and Ranveer  together before in an entirely different milieu and avatar in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. Looks like  Gully Boy has moved on to a  different cultural  and aesthetic  zone  without  a hint of  a hiccup.

The mounting of the project is, in one word, lavish. In two words,Karan Johar. Every frame spells affluence, every  scene is  a homage  to glamour, every sequence so saturated in  splendour, it feels like we have entered  the  universe  of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham  from the backdoor.

One quibble:the senior  iconic actors are hardly there: the titanic  triumvirate  of Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra  and Shabana Azmi hardy get a line each in the trailer. What to do? Ranveer doesn’t let anyone speak.

And he isn’t afraid to  look stupid on screen.  When he sees a picture of Rabindranath Tagore in his future  in-laws’ home he thinks it’s a portrait of his girlfriend’s grandfather.

When the literate  Bengali family  discusses politics  and  voting  Ranveer pitches in, “I’ve stopped  voting since Shamita’s exit.”

The politics of Big Boss is how far Ranveer’s  Rocky’s imagination  goes.Brain is  dead. Brawn thrives. At one point in the trailer Alia drools  over Ranveer’s muscles. She apologizes for objectifying him. But he is all for it.

Men have  done it for  generations. Why not women? Drool on.
