The much-awaited trailer of ‘Main Viyah Nahi Karona Tere Naal’ dropped on YouTube recently and we can’t stop gushing over Gurnam Bhullar’s looks! To give you a little background, the film is written and directed by Rupinder Inderjit and stars Gurnam Bhullar and Sonam Bajwa as leads. The film is supposed to release on March 4 this year. So continue reading to know my reaction of the trailer!
Well, my first reaction to the trailer was that I have mixed emotions about it. In the trailer, the opening shot wherein Gurnam is wearing a beanie and sweatshirt reminds me of Diljit Dosanjh’s looks in the likes of ‘Jatt and Juliet’ and even the recent ‘Honsla Rakh’ while the second shot reminds us of the Sikh boy who gets thrashed by his mother for playing a dhol inside the house while recording.

Further, the opening of the trailer was a little weak because it was too loud, the follow-up was breezy but again it leaves you with mixed emotions, as aforementioned, because I’m not sure about what to expect from the film. Let me explain, so the first half of the trailer shows Gurnam Bhullar and Sonam Bajwa having an affair and they’re all warm and nice together.
Meanwhile, the second half of the trailer showcases Sonam Bajwa begging him to get married, but he says he doesn’t want to. So it is quite obvious that the first half is a thought that the boy is having and in the second half he tries to keep away from the thought. On the other hand the girl obviously has a purpose for getting married to him. And we even see at the end that she doesn’t really want to get married to him but is just looking for an escape from the scenario by taking his support.
According to me, the film could do wonders if the director treats it well otherwise if it goes down the typical Punjabi film route (as we expect), then chances are that it might not be as well received at the box office. Also Read: Did You Know That Tania Is A Hardcore Dog Lover?
Also, we did see shades of ‘Ardab Mutiyaran’ in Sonam Bajwa’s slang and her monologue— the tempo was less, the pace of the dialogue delivery was less but it had a feel of the same Ardab Mutiyaran character. So its high time that Sonam gets rid of that, picks up another station and tries to revive her less desi Punjabi avatar (though we don’t mind, a little different flavor would be good).
Another point worth mentioning is that Gurnam doesn’t look as ‘Urban Pendu’ as he’s been made to look in the film. His slang, looks and body language does not resemble or remind us of any recent NRI that has returned to India. The good part is that we don’t see any extra supporting actors put in the film just for comedy purposes. There are new faces in the film and we would love to see them perform.
Overall, the film does not give you the power to want to go to the theatre and watch it. I mean, we might be okay with watching this film on our TV screens when we don’t have anything else to do. So the film does not excite us to go and watch it specially but we would like to wait and watch it on TV and see how the makers have made it.
