Pagglait Movie Story

Pagglait movie, directed and written by Umesh Bist is a comedy drama which is set up in a small town but modern thought process. It is a story of a young girl who discovers the purpose of her life and try to find an identity amidst looming questions about love and belonging in India.

Sanya Malhotra has shared the teaser for her upcoming new comedy. In the tease, it is shown that the heroine i.e Sanya Malhotra has recently been a widow but she is unable  to care about her husband’s death. The teaser opens with Sandhya’s brother-in-law getting tonsured, ruing how she has become a widow with his brother’s death. But Sandhya is lying in her bed, yawning through Facebook tributes for her husband. She seems not interested in all the drama.

When a concerned friend asks her about her complete lack of sadness, she says that she is indeed not feeling anything. She tells her about an incident when she was a little  girl and her cat  died, then she cried for three days and did not eat anything. But this time, she feels nothing such at all.

Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms and Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment announced their upcoming film Pagglait starring Sanya Malhotra in November 2019. The film that began in full stride last year in Lucknow, has been wrapped up, after a two-month-long schedule. The movie is going to be released on OTT platform.

Ekta Kapoor, who is known for producing movies that are relatable and flawed women who rebel stereotypes. In this movie, she is collaborating with Academy Award-winning producer, Guneet Monga (under the banner, Sikhya Entertainment) who has acclaimed content-driven films to her credit. While nothing much has been revealed about the movie, there is a huge curiosity generated among the audiences..

It is a rare film that can weave in comedy around death. Sanya Malhotra’s Netflix comedy Pagglait is attempting the clearly difficult genre, as revealed by its teaser. Earlier too, Sanya Malhotra has done a pretty good job in her movie Ludo which too was released on Netflix.

Pagglait teaser begins with the statement that a marriage of few months has ended in death of the husband, leaving behind his wife of a few months. She is expected to be in mourning, but she isn’t feeling sad at all.  Sanya appears to be quite impressive in this role.

Talking about Pagglait, Sanya said in a statement, “So thrilled to announce this film which is very close to my heart on my special day. I essay the role of Sandhya, a character very different from what I have previously portrayed on-screen. My Pagglait journey was Pagglait indeed- and I can’t wait for the world to witness this unique story very soon.”

Sanya has previously made a mark in films like Dangal, Badhaai Ho, Shakuntala Devi and was recently seen in Anurag Basu’s Ludo. The movie also stars Ashutosh Rana, Raghubir Yadav, Shruti Sharma and others.
