Both travelled to Thailand to fulfil their lifelong dream to become rich. A strong bond of friendship is created when these two guys meet in Thailand.
Then comes a girl into this dynamic mix and a sizzling move romance begins. Ranjha falls in love with Preet (played by Monica Bedi), who runs a refugee camp. Preet whose uncle helps her run the camp, introduces Ranjha to him.
The uncle tells Ranjha that he can only marry Preet, if he can replace a huge amount of money for the camp. With this unusual twist, the plot thickens and the boys’ friendship is put to the test.
Even though the plot of the movie seems to be a ‘non-original’ one, the trailer is still full with promises. Especially the pairing of Jazzy B and Garry Sandhu is getting a lot attention as they seem to work quite well together on the silver screen.
Not to mention the action sequences shown in the trailer are rather bold and attention grabbing which is always a good sign for a con-comedy.
The first look of the movie form the trailer makes it quite clear that it can go head to head with its counterpart Bollywood action movies. Although the trailer looked very much alike Dhoom franchise trailers, however this movie has that Punjabi comedy twist which makes it even more charming and entertaining.
The fact that a Pollywood movie trailer looks like a Hindi movie trailer, can only mean that this regional movie industry is rising to the occasion and producing some good quality movies. This step forward for Pollywood can finally prove the point that the Hindi movie industry is no longer in the driving seat of Indian film industry. Romeo Ranjha releases in cinemas from May 16.
