Simple, warm and so very fresh despite being a period drama – that’s the feeling I get after watching the trailer of Muklawa, a film releasing on May 24 starring Ammy Virk and Sonam Bajwa in the lead. It is produced by renowned production house, Whitehill Studios and directed by Simerjit Singh.

One look at the trailer and you’re sure to fall in love with the innocence of people of the bygone era when relationships were regarded as sacred and pious, and everything, inlcluding a husband-wife relationship needed a proper “sanction” from the society! So, in those times mere a marriage ceremony wasn’t enough to cement the nuptial bond, an elaborate ritual of ‘Muklawa’ needed to be performed as well which meant husband/wife living apart from each other despite being “officially” married.
Even nowadays this ceremony is held but right after the wedding day itself, pretty short waiting time as compared to one full year in those times!
Now talking things from cinematic perspective, Muklawa’s trailer succeedingly leaves an impact on us owing to its fresh storyline. Without being too loud, the trailer manages to convey that you can expect this film to be a healthy mix of light-hearted humour and emotions. As inferred from the trailer, Muklawa seems to be a story of innocence transmuted into rebellion in youth versus elderly determination to not change their opinions and attitude on set traditions.
Who will win in the end? The youth logic or the age-old tradition? For that we’ll have to watch Muklawa on May 24 in the theatre itself.
As far as the characters’ looks are concerned, both Ammy and Sonam exude simplicity of old times through both their outfits and body language.
Helmed by Simerjit Singh and produced by Gunbir Singh Sidhu and Manmord Sidhu, in ‘Muklawa’, along with Ammy Virk and Sonam Bajwa, the movie also features Gurpreet Ghuggi, BN Sharma, Karamjit Anmol, Sarbjit Cheema, Drishtii Garewal and Nirmal Rishi.
