Ranvir Shorey turns Punjabi doctor[DOWN]
Actor Ranvir Shorey will be seen playing a Punjabi doctor in his next film 'Tina Ki Chaabi'.
Produced by Kosmik Films Pvt, 'Tina Ki Chaabi' is written and directed by Amit Saxena of 'Jism' fame.
Newcomer Geetanjali Thapa will be seen as Ranvir's leading lady in the film.
This comic caper has been shot at Tangra in Kolkata's China Town, apart from Bangkok and Mumbai.
Recently Ravir and Geetanjali were seen having a gala time at the publicity shoot of the film, while photographer Amit Asher went on clicking the duo.
Ranvir plays Dr. JagPrag Singh, a Punjabi doctor armed with stethoscope and doctor's bag.
The film tells the story of a group of people who find themselves in situations that threaten their survival, and as they try to get out of their respective messes, greed and karma take over, hurling them together into situations that border on the ridiculous in this caper comedy.
It all starts when "Cochin Hanifa" a Bangkok-based Indian gangster, sends his reluctant gangster son - "Junior Hanifa" to collect unpaid dues from various people in Kolkata (India) while at the same time, a young woman, Tina, gets news of her father Michael's untimely death while in hiding overseas. Michael has left Tina an inheritance: 50million rupees, in the form of raw diamonds, in a train station locker in Bangkok.
These two seemingly unrelated events act as catalyst and set in motion a series of events that will ultimately change the lives of all the characters. Of course, Tina is a gambler and also owes money to the Hanifa.
Set in Tangra (Kolkata) the only true 'China Town' in India, three people, namely - Tina, Basu and Teddy will soon discover that when you owe money to Hanifa, you can run but you cannot hide.
And when 'Junior' comes calling, the wily Basu and Teddy, back-stabbing ex-employees of Tina's father, Michael, know that there is up and that they better have the money or else!
Tony, a small time crook and gangland "informer" par excellence, informs the dos of Tina's inheritance and both Basu and Teddy realize that the key to all their problems lies with Tina and the key to the locker!
And thus begins the quest for Tina's key.
An innocent doctor, Jag Prag Singh, a man seeking answers to add meaning to his otherwise empty life, also gets pulled into the rollercoaster ride and in this riotous and hilarious journey. Tina and Prag's paths collide.
They find themselves working as a team due to circumstances, dodging not only Teddy and Basu but also the ultimate villain Hanifa to get her inheritance. As well as finding answers to their questions on life in general.
And just when it seems that things could not get any worst, 'Junior' is accidentally killed and the events spiral out of everyone's control, in a cascading series of darkly hilarious encounters.
The film is slated for release in June.
