The movie’s title is impressed by an Uttar Pradesh-based conventional puppet present, whose tales revolve round two feminine glove puppets — a person’s mistress (Gulabo) and his spouse (Sitabo) — who’re all the time at battle. Speaking concerning the title, Shoojit Sircar told the Indian Express, “We thought why don’t we celebrate this dying art of puppetry with this title? This was not our original title. Juhi and I thought of this while watching some Gulabo Sitabo puppet shows on YouTube.”
Gulabo Sitabo is a unusual dramedy which follows the story of an aged landlord Mirza Sheikh who tries to get his tenant Baankey Sodhi out of his priceless possession: his mansion which is in ruins. However Baankey isn’t any much less. He provides it again to Mirza and continues to stay in his home with out even paying the hire.
To eliminate Baankey, Mirza in the future decides to promote his mansion. However Baankey with the assistance of an officer of the Archaeological Survey of India (Vijay Raaz) will get the mansion declared as a historic website. Now, what’s going to come out of this chaos stays to be seen.
The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan because the aged landlord Mirza Sheikh, and Ayushmann Khurrana performs his tenant, Baankey Sodhi. Vijay Raaz is the Archaeological Survey of India officer, and Brijendra Kala essays the position of a lawyer. Actors Srishti Shrivastava and Farrukh Jafar can even be seen within the film.
Director and author
Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar has helmed Gulabo Sitabo. Speaking concerning the movie, he advised indianexpress.com, “I call this film, the world of Gulabo Sitabo. So there are many characters, many families, and my camera goes inside there and just observes them. It’s not like you act and we’ll do something. It’s so fluid. It’ll look like everyday people who come from an economically lower background, their everyday struggle, life and smiles. Ayushmann will melt into this world so well that you won’t even notice him. So that’s the fascinating part.”
