Team Chhalawa released its trailer yesterday and like a lot of rom-coms based around a wedding, everyone is expecting a lot from this upcoming rom-com, but after watching the trailer yesterday its seems like a combo of different Lollywood and Bollywood movies!
Have a look on trailer first then I’ll highlight few scenes from trailer which I think are copied from different movies.
I’ll start with the poster, you can see the resemblance between both posters Chhalawa & Dolly ki Doli.
A scene from “Chalawa”
A scene from ”Happy Bhag Jaygi”
Another scene from “Chalawa” when Azfar is walking away from a wedding house at background.
It is the same scene taken from “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” when Ranbir walks away from a wedding house at background.
This scene of Chhalawa is giving me vibes of “Punjab Nahi Jaungi”.
Directed by Wajahat Rauf (Karachi Se Lahore, Lahore Se Aage), Chhalawa stars Mehwish Hayat as a young woman being pushed to marry against her will. Her real love interest Azfar Rehman arrives in her Punjabi hometown to win over her father.
Speaking at the trailer launch yesterday, Rehman called the film a family entertainer with great music to boot.
Zara Noor Abbas and Asad Siddiqui play Mehwish’s sister and Azfar’s friend respectively. Confidants of the lead couple, they have quirks and a storyline of their own. Mahmood Aslam stars as Mehwish’s father in the film.
The film is slightly reminiscent of Punjab Nahi Jaungi with the haveli backdrop and Mehwish playing yet another reluctant bride. We’ll have a full picture of what the film has in store for us when it releases on Eid ul Fitr.
