Miya Biwi Aur Murder trailer: Dysfunctional married couple sets aside differences to stay alive
Mumbai - 22 Jun 2022 18:04 IST
A married couple who is constantly at loggerheads has to set aside their differences to stay alive in MX Player's upcoming comedic crime caper Miya Biwi Aur Murder.
Jayesh (Rajeev Khandelwal), a police officer, and his wife Priya (Manjari Fadnnis) spend most of their time bickering and cheating on each other. But one night they bring their lovers home without telling each other. Soon everything goes awry as people are poisoned, shots get fired and dead bodies keep piling on.
They try their best to get out of this fiasco but devious thieves, dreaded gangsters and blackmailing police officers make their task even more arduous.
The trailer is smartly edited and does a really good job of giving us the fair about the show's comical tone without revealing too much about the plot. Also, one can't help but notice the series' slight similarity to Samantha and Fahadh Faasil's subplot in Thiagarajan Kumararaja's Tamil film Super Deluxe (2019).
Khandelwal said he and the rest of the cast were charged up during the shoot. "The director Sunil, Manjari, I and the rest of the cast was so charged up while shooting for the show that it shows on screen. Also, it was shot when the mood, in general, was very tense and sombre because of the pandemic. We thought this would make them smile and laugh. This is a dark comedy and I haven’t done anything like this ever before. Now we hope that the audience also enjoys this madcap comedy thriller.”
Expressing her excitement, Fadnnis added, "I’m super thrilled to be a part of this series. It is about the dysfunctional married life of Priya and Jayesh and how the madness of one night brings them together to work as a team. I can’t wait for the audience to watch it on 1 July. We had such a blast making it, I’m sure the audience is in for a super fun ride while being at the edge of their seats.”
Directed by Sunil Manchanda, and written by Sambit Mishra, the series also stars Rushad Rana, Ashmita Bakshi and Prasad Khandekar.
Miya Biwi Aur Murder is set to be streamed on MX Player from 1 July.
