7 reasons we are waiting ‘wholeheartedly’ for the trailer of ‘Half Girlfriend’
1/7Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor: Will they hit or miss?
'Half Girlfriend' will see two very talented stars of the new generation coming together for the first time. Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor play Madhav Jha and Riya Somani respectively, and the motion posters spell out their chemistry beautifully. We are quite excited to catch them in the trailer as we will get a glimpse of the two of them together, before the movie hits the screens. Plus, we hope that we get to see a face-off between the two in the trailer, as they both play basket ball players in the movie. A hit pair makes the crux of a love story. The trailer will spell that for us.
2/7The magic of Mohit Suri
Whenever the trailer of a Mohit Suri directorial comes, it brings along a magical feeling, one which exudes the purity of love. The music and emotions make an impact, without revealing the story in the slightest, such is the magic of the man. We are hoping the same will be the case in the trailer of 'Half Girlfriend'.
3/7The glimpse of a chartbuster soundtrack
'Ek Villain', 'Aashiqui 2' or 'Hamari Adhuri Kahani', Mohit Suri's movies have been known to have soundtracks that break the hit lists. We are expecting the same from the soundtrack of 'Half Girlfriend'. The trailer will give us a medley of the tracks and we are so waiting for it. P.S. Did you know it took one long year for the composers to create the music of this movie? The team of Mithoon, Tanishk Bagchi, Rishi Rich, Farhan Saeed, Ami Mishra and Rahul Mishra have really worked hard for this one.
4/7An introduction to Chetan Bhagat’s novel idea
'Half Girlfriend' is Chetan Bhagat's sixth novel. Till now, four of his other books have been adapted into movies, and three have been successful. Chetan is known for scripting unique love stories that appeal to the masses. The story of 'Half Girlfriend' is quite unique in itself. We have to see how much a gist of this unique story can be given out to us, without many revelations, in the trailer.
5/7First glimpse of Arjun Kapoor’s dialect
The ones who have read the novel would know that actor Arjun Kapoor will be seen playing the part of Madhav Jha, a boy who hails from Bihar. The actor had undergone dialect training for this and we must say the result is impressive. Recently, the actor had shared a video on his Twitter handle where he was seen speaking Hindi in a Bhojpuri accent perfectly. He is playing an unconventional hero, and we would love to see more of him in the trailer. We are particularly waiting for the scene where he meets the character of Shraddha Kapoor, i.e. Riya Somani, for the first time. Wait for it!
6/7Will Shraddha Kapoor and Mohit Suri's hit jodi hit a hat-trick of trailer hits?
Both of them had first worked together in 'Aashiqui 2' (2013), which was a blockbuster. Post the super success of this film, 'Ek Villain' (2014) followed with its own success story at box office. The trailers of 'Aashiqui 2' and 'Ek Villain' created records of views, and the same is expected from the trailer of 'Half Girlfriend' too. P.S. The video of 'Tum Hi Ho', the love theme of 'Aashiqui 2', is amongst the most watched Indian videos on YouTube.
7/7“Yeh Half Girlfriend kya hota hai?”
Two motion posters with beautiful instrumentals, scenic backdrop, and a mysterious love story of Madhav (Arjun) and Riya (Shraddha), have been presented to us. We also have a teaser wherein we see a befuddled Madhav, who is confused as to what does the term half girlfriend mean? This has further heightened our curiousity. We just cannot wait to see what more developments will be offered to us in the trailer. Probably the trailer will answer this question that has been bugging Madhav's mind.
