Starring Irrfan Khan and Parvathy, ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ is a quirky love story where the two characters embark on an unusual journey that soon turns into an adventurous one.
From the trailer, it looks like that Irrfan Khan is acing the comic timing and Parvathy matches him at every beat. The film is shot in various cities on the banks of the river Ganga. The two characters start their journey as ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ (almost single) and will probably find love on their way. The film looks like a fun-filled comedy ride that is going to be loved by the audience.
The film’s quirky caption,‘Saath jeene marne wali story nahi hai humari’ (Ours isn’t the live together-die together kind of love story) suggests that the film will not be an emotional saga and will stick to light-hearted entertainment. After the superb success of ‘Hindi Medium’ earlier this year, this film will again see Irrfan in a light-hearted role and if his performance in ‘Hindi Medium’ is anything to go by, this one will hit it out of the park as well. ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ will also mark the Hindi film debut of Malayalam actress Parvathy.
Tanuja Chandra has returned to the director’s chair with this one after a long gap of 11 years. The last film directed by Chandra, Hope and a Little Sugar, released back in 2006. The director is known for her thrillers like Sangharsh (1999) and Dushman (1998). It will be a refreshing change to watch a slice-of-life film from the director.
The film releases on November 10.
