Filmmakers Imtiaz Ali and Ekta Kapoor are set to roll out a new movie titled ‘Laila Majnu’. The movie is directed by Imtiaz Ali’s younger brother Sajid Ali and is co-written by the Ali brothers. 

Laila Majnu is on the similar lines of the classic love story of Laila and Majnu, previously portrayed in HS Rawail’s Laila Majnu back in 1976, featuring Rishi Kapoor and Ranjeeta. The movie is a modern spin to this age-old romantic tale.

The story is about Kais (Avinash Tiwary) and Laila (Tripti Dimri) who have fallen in love and later deal with the consequences.

The 2.04-minute trailer of the movie has given us glimpses of love, romance, madness, anxiety and violence with some touching dialogues. 

MyNation takeaways from the trailer

Background score is mindblowing, just like all Imtiaz Ali movies like Rockstar, Jab We Met and others. We are in love with the song 'Tu Meri Laila', a very peppy and youthful number. 

The locations are picturesque and were probably shot in Kashmir. You will watch the trailer in repeat to see every frame carefully. Hats off to the cinematographer of the movie.

The voiceover is very impactful and flows with the video. Editing is sleek with right cuts and proper effects.

We are in love with Avinash Tiwary who is the lead actor. In the first half of the trailer, we see him in a “typical rich spoilt brat” avatar who flirts with the actress, and in the latter half he transforms into a mad lover and has a cynical outlook of the world.

Talking about the film, Imtiaz Ali had said, “Laila Majnu is an eternal story of everlasting love. It’s perhaps the most popular love story of all times. For the film, we wanted a fresh approach in all aspects – a fresh cast, a fresh script and a fresh setting. We had a great experience making the film and can’t wait to showcase it to the world.”

The film will hit the screens on September 7, 2018.
