The makers of Abhishek Banerjee starrer upcoming web series The Great Weddings of Munnes dropped its trailer on social media on Tuesday. The Voot Select original which also stars Barkha Singh as the leading lady, marks the first collaboration of her and Banerjee.
The Great Weddings of Munnes also stars an astounding ensemble supporting cast including the likes of Aaksh Dabhade, Sunita Rajwar, Sunil Chitkara, Chetan Sharma, Banwari Jhol among others.
The ten-episode series is helmed by Sunil Subramani, who previously directed Dream Girl starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushratt Bharuccha. Dream Girl producer Raaj Shaandaliyaa will commemorate his OTT release with the series. Going by the trailer of the show, the story seems to be full of twists and turns based on the premise of getting Munnes (essayed by Banerjee), the most (not) eligible bachelor of the town, married.
The two minute long trailer video hints upon the basic plotline of the web series. The comedy-drama features the love story of Munnes and Mahi (played by Barkha Singh). Munnes is a bachelor who wants to get married but is unable to do so as he’s faced with countless rejections during his marriage proposals. This ends up in him becoming the talk of the town and a subject of mockery.
Watch the trailer here:
As the trailer progresses, we witness a romantic plot line emerging with the entry of Mahi. The show seems to highlight the superstitious attitude of the locals and the struggles that it creates for the couple. Their love story gets hampered by a prophecy from a priest on their wedding day. Munnes now has to marry another woman to get the prophecy annulled and be reunited with Mahi. The series looks like a family entertainer with a fresh plotline to engage the audience in the various experiences of Munnes.
The Paatal Lok fame actor Banerjeeis superb on screen. He plays the role of a small town man with pure intentions and sensitivity. The character is naive, emotional and hopeful about his future. His comedic timing is also on point. The central idea of the story is steeped in realism, with Munnes as the guy-next-door who’s having trouble finding a bride.
Barkha Singh looks ravishing and beautiful. Her beauty is in complete contrast to that of an average looking Munnes which becomes another talking point in their impending marriage. One of her friends says, “If you get married to him, it will seem as if a thief has been awarded the Padma Shri.”
Innocent Munnes kick starts his journey to find a suitable bride for a day so that he can reverse the priest’s prophecy. As the series trailer progresses, we get glimpses of the different geographical locations Munnes travels to different locations donning different outfits,and all that happens in his desperation to find a suitable bride. Every positive situation takes a twist in his world when his bride turns out to be a witch (P.S: This ain’t a spoiler. It’s very much revealed in the trailer).
The series seems to beis packed with comedy, romance, and drama. The background music is peppy and in-sync with the plotline of the story. Munnes, is seen trying to indulge in multiple marriages before he ties the knot with his love interest Mahi. Evidently, that’s why the series has been titled, The Great Weddings of Munnes.
