Shahid Kapoor is back, after impressing us as Maha Rawal Ratan Singh in Padmaavat, with Batti Gul Meter Chalu. This movie marks the first collaboration between Shahid and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha director Shree Narayan Singh, who is known for making films with a social message along with the added twist of humour. This time, the filmmaker tackles the problem of the rise in electricity bills through the eyes of Shahid Kapoor, who fights for his best friend and the injustice done to him. 

Shraddha Kapoor plays the delightful love interest who is Shahid's beacon of light while Yami is the counterpart and thorn in Shahid's fight for what is right. The trailer of the highly anticipated film is finally out and gave us a glimpse of what it has in store for us. We have to admit, the tone of the trailer set things in stone and the transition from comedy to the sudden shift with a courtroom drama has left us curious. Batti Gul Meter Chalu releases on September 21, 2018, but for now, we list down 5 things we loved about the trailer:

Twin shades of Shahid Kapoor

Seeing Shahid as the lovestruck, loud and boisterous character with the crisp accent is always a delight to watch and Batti Gul Meter Chalu is no different. But leave it to the actor to not make it look completely caricaturish. To see him as the lawyer seeking justice for his best friend will be fun to watch, indeed. 

A vivacious Shraddha Kapoor and a staunch counterpart in Yami Gautam

Batti Gul Meter Chalu features not one, but two strong leading ladies in Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam. Shraddha plays Shahid's love interest and is his voice of reason throughout, especially at a time when he needs it most. On the other hand, Yami plays the opposing lawyer who will be the perfect opposition to Shahid. Also, a special mention to the returning Farida Jalal, who we get to see on screen after a long time.

The realistic storyline

Electricity bills are something we all have to deal with and the unfair practices in this business affect us all. Batti Gul Meter Chalu comes at the right time with a loud message to the ones who need to listen, right now.

Revisiting Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor's chemistry

Shahid and Shraddha first worked together in Haider (2014) and their chemistry was appreciated. It is again revisited in Batti Gul Meter Chalu and by the glimpses in the trailer, they have their chemistry game on point.

The dialogues

"Zara facts or figures ki bhi baat karle," Yami quips and Shahid responds, "Facts toh sab mere paas hai aur aapke hote hue, main figure ki kaise baat karun?" Such dialogues will surely get a laugh out of the entire audience.

I loved the tráiler. Shahid, Yami, the new guy and the older ones were great but I just have leyes for Shraddha. Her half curly half straight hair was hilarious. She keeps improving film by film. So proud of mi beautiful role model. Best of luck!

I'm loving this trailer. Can't wait to watch the film. Shahid is a good actor and the film looks nice on the whole

Looks good.
