The film is directed by Ravi Jadhav.
Banjo is a film where we don't get to see Riteish Deshmukh making awkward expressions (Great Grand Masti), pouting those double meaning dialogues that is making us laugh less and cringe more (again...you know which film I am talking about!) or be a comic sidekick (Housefull franchise). Banjo offers Riteish Deshmukh to be that massy hero, with the touch of subtlety, that helps him connect with the masses.
It also helps that Banjo is directed by Ravi Jadhav, who previously made the much entertaining Marathi flicks Balak Palak and Time Pass. The trailer of the film is out and it is about a local band, consisting of Riteish Deshmukh, Dharmesh Yelande (for once he is not seen dancing here) and co., who plays at the Ganpati pandals. They are 'discovered' by a US returned music aficionado, played by Nargis Fakhri, but not before the boys get to ogle at her in her short shirts and skirts, because she is a 'maal'.
Anyways, the girl convinces the guys to join the big league and start a proper band using their own instruments like the banjo. However their ascension is not liked by the bigwigs of the music industry, and the band faces several challenges as a result. Well, this is what the trailer has shown us about the plot.
Banjo certainly looks colourful, especially during the scenes where we see the band playing on stage. Like I said before, it's also a refreshing change to see Riteish Deshmukh in such a different role. However, what should really work for the film should be the music, which we didn't get much of a clue in there.
