After making us roll on the floor with his hilarious one-liners and unbelievable spontaneity as a host, Manish Paul makes his acting debut through an impressive looking venture
Mickey Virus, the title of Saurabh Varma’s directorial debut-starring Manish Paul- at the outset reminds you of Ayushmann Khurrana’s super successful debut Vicky Donor. But it will be quite interesting note that Mickey Virus was in the making even before Vicky Donor was released, at least that’s what the makers have claimed.
Interestingly, the plot of Manish Paul’s debut bears uncanny resemblance to Vicky Donor as both the films have Delhi as the backdrop with the protagonists being good for nothing yet street smart dudes. While Ayushmann played the charming sperm donor in Shoojit Sircar’s movie, Manish will play a vella hacker in Micky Virus. The rom-com also stars Puja Gupta (Vicky Donor), Manish Chaudhary and a Greek hottie Ellie Avaram.
The comic thriller revolves around the business of hacking. In the film, the Delhi Police comes across a hacking case and are on a lookout of a computer geek who can help them crack this case. The head of the police team ACP Siddhant (Manish Choudhary), comes across Mickey Arora (Manish Paul), a lazy but street smart hacker. The lazy bum runs a grocery store during the day and creates virus’s for anti virus companies in the night. Only Mickey has in him all that it takes to crack this case.
The trailer looks quite slick and smart. Take a look at tell us if you liked it too!
