Filmmaker Nitin Kakkar’s next after the National award-winning Filmistaan (2012) also features a hapless lead character.
In the first film, enthusiastic assistant director Sunny (Sharib Hashmi) accidentally crosses over to Pakistan and is captured by some not-so-nice guys.
In the new film, Kakkar’s lead has no idea what to do with his life. Jai (Jackky Bhagnani) is an unrepentant slacker who needs a boost in life. His father is constantly disappointed in him and his numerous failures.
Meanwhile, with the help of his two best friends, Jai keeps coming up with ideas to get famous and/or rich.
His family also considers a marriage proposal for him, but Jai mistakes the maid for his bride-to-be. Until he meets Kritika Kamra’s character Avni, an enterprising woman from the same town, his opposite in every way.
Avni suggests that they team up for a business which she can’t initiate as she is a woman. The two will likely have ups and downs in their journey to get things going.
The screenplay of the film is written by Sharib Hashmi. Mitron is a remake of the Telugu film Pelli Chupulu (2016) which won two National awards for Best Telugu Film and Best Screenplay – Dialogues. Pelli Chupulu (2016) starred Vijay Deverakonda and Ritu Varma.
Mitron’s story has been transplanted to Ahmedabad, Gujarat, and actor Pratik Gandhi and Shivam Parekh give able support to Bhagnani as his best friends. Television actress Kamra makes her Hindi film debut in the movie.
Incidentally, the lead character, played by Bhagnani, seems to be the most passive of the lot. The dynamic of the large-but-close-knit family, especially Neeraj Sood as Jai’s father, is a riot.
Mitron, produced by Vikram Malhotra, is due to be released on 14 September. Watch the trailer below and tell us if you think the film will be a hit.
