Khaali Peeli, the first mainstream Bollywood movie to adopt the novel concept of Pay Per View (PPV), will be available to watch on Zee Plex, ZEE5’s dedicated PPV platform. The flat rate fixed by the platform is Rs 299 – that is what each subscriber will have to shell out to watch Khaali Peeli on Zee Plex.
The trailer of Khaali Peeli, which dropped today on Zee Plex’s social media handles, gives a hint to what the movie will be like – fast-paced, funny, and packed with typical Bollywood masala. In fact, the trailer will remind you of the masala entertainers of the eighties and nineties, when the likes of Govinda, Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor ruled the roost.
Peppy punch lines will remind you of Anil Kapoor’s ‘jhakaas’, Jackie’s ‘bhidu’ and the ‘aarela jaarela’ lingo of Bollywood’s good ol’ days. Ishaan Khatter pulls off the bindaas character with panache, though Ananya Panday doesn’t sound as convincing.
Ishaan’s badass taxi driver avatar. He’s sassy, he’s snarky, and he drives a taxi with the number plate 6969 – go figure! Into his taxi, one night, arrives a girl — Ananya Pandey — on the run with a bag full of valuables and tons of bad guys after her.
The action sequences are shot with a tinge of irreverent humour – they’re fun, as well as thrilling. The teaser gives hint of the pace, humour and dialogues of Khaali Peeli — all entertaining, in an over the top way.
The two cons meet their match in the villain, played menacingly by Jaideep Ahlawat. The teaser of Khaali Peeli had not given a single hint of Jaideep Ahlawat’s character, and for good reason. He’s the surprise package of the trailer, flowing mane, sinister dialogue and all! The movie sure seems worth watching, if only for the showdown between Khatter and Ahlawat.
Khaali Peeli has been conceived by Ali Abbas Zafar, directed by Maqbool Khan, and produced by Zee Studios, along with Ali Abbas Zafar and Himanshu Kishan Mehra.
Khaali Peeli premieres on Zee Plex on 2nd October.
