Ranveer Singh reprises his role as a Gujarati in Jayeshbhai Jordaar, following his 2013 film Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela. This time, though, he is a married man struggling to save the life of his unborn female kid, rather than wielding a rifle or romancing a beauty from the enemy’s land. The teaser for the film was launched on Tuesday, and it teased a humorous social comedy about Indian families’ desire for a boy child.
Ranveer Singh is introduced as the lanky son of Boman Irani’s strict village sarpanch (head of village) and his equally conservative spouse, Ratna Pathak Shah, in the trailer. Given that Ranveer’s Jayeshbhai is anticipating a girl with his homemaker wife, one thing is clear: if his parents have their way, the child will not be permitted to give birth. How a simple man gains the strength to flee his family with his pregnant spouse in order to preserve his child becomes an eye-opening tale of resolve and fortitude that is desperately required in the cause of protecting the female child. The movie appears to be entertaining, with genuine Gujarati speech and a lot of fun.
On YouTube, a fan commented on the trailer, saying, “This film, in my opinion, should be dubbed in Gujarati. Because of Ram Leela, Ranveer has a large fan base in Gujarat. Furthermore, this film is about a Gujarati man.”
Anushka Sharma, Ranveer’s Band Baaja Baaraat co-star, had expressed her interest in the odourless soap and the unique message from Jayeshbhai Jordaar a day before the trailer’s release. The “odourless soap is an innovative creation” of their spot called Pravingadh, he penned in the letter, and the women in the region are only permitted to bathe. “Why?” he continued. In our culture, such questions are not presented. I would have happily invited you to my home, but you would have had to conceal your face with a veil as soon as you crossed the toll. You won’t be able to view anything after that. So it’s best if I provide you a peek of Pravingadh life so you may share it with your family at your leisure. For now, I am sending you some traditional soap.” This is a reference to a scenario in the trailer where Boman’s sarpanch blames scented soap for sexual harassment in the hamlet.
