Celebrated filmmaker Sudhir Mishra has teamed up with Nawazuddin Siddiqui for Netflix’s ‘Serious Men’. The film is based on the book of the same name by Manu Joseph. The trailer of ‘Serious Men’ was dropped today.

The trailer opens with Nawaz narrating how it takes four generations to be able to do nothing. He then goes on to explain how the fruits of hard work of the first generation are reaped best by the fourth generation.

Coming from a middle-class background, Nawaz in his attempt to escape the reality of his status, presents his son as a child genius. However, soon he faces the threat of being exposed. Will Nawaz succeed in conning everyone or will his scam get exposed? Well, that forms the crux of the film’s plot.
