The pre-independence era and British rule was possibly one of the toughest times to live in. On one hand where people’s hearts were burning with raging revolt and unparalled love for their country, the British were going to extreme lengths to crush that mutiny under their feet. While, our freedom fighters fought with their blood, sweat and tears; we don’t think there was anyone who openly dared to kick the Britishers in their ass. But, our beloved Kapil Sharma did exactly that and instead of getting killed, he got himself a job under a British officer (someone who was kicked by him). This is the premise of Sharma’s upcoming movie ‘Firangi’, which is in reality as desi as one can expect it to be.

Instead of tickling your funny bones, Sharma will actually be seen in a different avatar. He plays a young man who feels that British aren’t bad people. He eventually falls in love with a girl but things backfire when the whole village turns against him thinking he is a traitor working for the British and try to kill him. How will he prove his innocence and convince the villagers and his lover about Britishers not being bad, weaves the rest of the plot.
The trailer packs a lot of funny, intense and romantic moments, which makes this movie a complete entertainer and with Kapil being at the center of this film, you can be ensured that you won’t get bored while watching it. The movie is directed by Rajiev Dhingra and stars Ishita Dutta as his love interest. This film also marks Kapil’s foray into production. From playing comedy roles, romancing multiple women at a time to playing a serious role like this, Kapil has come a long way in Bollywood and we don’t think there’s anything that’s stopping him.
The movie is slated to release on November 24.
