Tiki Taka trailer: Parambrata Chatterjee promises a comedy of errors on friendship and football
Kolkata - 04 Sep 2020 14:00 IST
The trailer for actor-filmmaker Parambrata Chatterjee’s upcoming directorial venture Tiki Taka promises a light-hearted comedy on the adventures of taxi-driver Raju with Senegalese football player Khelechhi Ajgubi.
Chatterjee will be seen as Raju, who goes the extra mile to ensure a sense of belonging and security for his friend Khelechhi, played by Emona Enabulu, in Kolkata.
The film also features Ritabhari Chakraborty, Saswata Chatterjee and Paran Bandopadhyay in crucial roles.
The trailer begins with the voice of a filmmaker who wishes to make a film on Khelechhi and relies on his sole friend Raju. The voice is that of actor Riddhi Sen.
The trailer then takes us to the introduction phase of Khelechhi and Raju, who is initially curious about his friend’s distinct physical features, manner and, especially, his name.
As he gets to know Khelechhi more, Raju not only develops a deep friendship with him, but also vows to ensure his security, as the latter gets caught in the politics of Bengal club football.
The story, which revolves around Bengalis’ association with football, seems to have been portrayed with a lot of humour relating to their deep sentiments. Saswata Chatterjee appears as the typical comical villain in the trailer, who aims to exercise his power through evil means, but ends up as a buffoon in many of the visuals.
Chakraborty, on the other hand, seems to be playing a photo-journalist, who aids Raju in saving his friend in the adventure that follows.
The entire trailer seems to focus on the smallest details of Kolkata culture, which includes warmth as well as petty hooliganism.
The twist in the middle of the trailer, when Khelechhi proclaims that he is not a footballer, seems to be at the heart of the comedy of errors.
However, including Chakraborty’s scream in the trailer seems to be a bad choice. The director could also have refrained from painting himself dark superficially.
Tiki Taka will be streamed on Zee5 from 11 September. Watch the trailer below and let us know if you are keen to watch the film.
