Life imitated art recently when the official trailer for the eagerly anticipated detective thriller film ‘Bobby Jasoos’ was launched by lead actress Vidya Balan and 10 real-life detectives.
In a special promotional event at PVR cinema in Mumbai’s uber trendy Juhu area, Vidya together with some of her co-stars, members from the film’s distribution team at Reliance Entertainment and 10 real-life detectives unveiled the Bobby Jasoos trailer and engaged in some quirky promotional activities, much to the delight of the assembled press. The real sleuths added a nice touch, as they eluded to Vidya Balan’s portrayal of several cleverly disguised characters in the film.
Bobby Jasoos is a gripping film that sets a new benchmark for the thriller genre in Indian cinema and examines in a clever, witty and fresh way the dynamics of the gender struggle between women and men. The film celebrates the aspiration of ‘Bobby’ (Vidya Balan – The Dirty Picture, Parineeta), who wants to become the number one detective in the old city area of Hyderabad. What ensues is a classic thriller caper that serves up a tantalizing mix of twists and turns, as the vivacious and engaging ‘Bobby’ solves a series of mind-boggling crime cases.
Bobby Jasoos is directed by Samar Shaikh, whose impressive cache of work includes being the assistant director on the worldwide hit franchise Dhoom and is co-produced by Bollywood actress Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha under their production banner Born Free Entertainment and Reliance Entertainment. The film releases on 4th July 2014 this week!
