Mubarakan trailer 2: Anil, Arjun Kapoor manage to win a few giggles

The trailer has a few good moments, but nothing more.

A second trailer of Anees Bazmee’s Mubarakan was released today. Although it is better than the first one, it doesn’t do much other than generating a a few giggles. The trailer starts with a scene solely dedicated to unfunny jokes. Anil Kapoor’s jokes on vegetables are so poor, that no stretch of imagination helps them become funny. The trailer also has the cliched confusion, running around and slapping that one expects from a Bazmee film. Importance is given to Anil Kapoor’s clock antics and we wonder why. 

To be fair, the Udta Punjab joke and the scene where Arjun Kapoor falls down the balcony while looking for network in his phone are genuinely funny moments. It also gives a glimpse of actress Neha Sharma, who was absent in the first promo. The two leading ladies, Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty, aren’t given much importance though. 

The first trailer, released a few weeks ago, showed that the film is a grand affair with high production values. However, the trailer didn’t quite succeed in tickling the funny bones.

Mubarakan will be released on 28 July. On its release, the film will clash with Madhur Bhandarkar’s Indu Sarkar and Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Raag Desh.
