It's been very long since we have enjoyed a really good comedy film in Bollywood. But perhaps that's finally gonna change with Mubarakan which is releasing tomorrow. The movie is directed by Anees Bazmee, who for all that we know is known for making some insanely funny comic flicks like No Entry, Singh is Kinng and Welcome. Plus, it has a promising starcast to the likes of Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Ileana DÇruz, Athiya Shetty, Ratna Pathak Shah and Rahul Dev. While there's no denying the fact Anil Kapoor has a fantastic comic timing. Arjun Kapoor further adds on to the excitement by playing a double role which means, double the romance, double the fun. So before the film hits the screens tomorrow (July 28), we give you a quick gist of what Mubarakan is all about....Also read: 5 reasons why we are excited for Arjun Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty’s Mubarakan
Mubarakan is basically touted to be a romantic-comedy that revolves around a big fat Indian wedding. Identical twins(Karan & Charan) played by Arjun Kapoor are in love with two different girls( Ileana D'Cruz and Athiya Shetty) but are facing issues in getting married to them. Enters their Uncle (Anil Kapoor) who equally has issues in his life but is ready to do anything for his nephews. So do they get married at the end? Now that's what the film is all about!
Box office predicition
We spoke to trade analyst Akshaye Rathi and he seemed pretty positive about Mubarakan's run at the box office. He said, "I am rooting for Anees Bazmee. When it comes to his genre, he is a bloody good director. His craftsmanship will surely do wonders. Add to that Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty and the film looks fantastic. His genre of mass comedy is coming in after a long and the mass audience has been deprived of such comic elements and humour since a while now. This film will surely fill the demand supply gap and hence, it will do well. It should open to Rs 5 – 7 crore on day one and over the weekend, it should make around Rs 18 – 20 crore. But after that, it all depends on the content of the film and the word of mouth publicity it will receive.
In all we got to see two trailers of Mubarakan and we must say, both were extremely high on entertainment. There's comedy, there's naach gana, there's romance, there's Arjun's double role and to top it all, there's Anil Kapoor - now what more can you ask for? Although the first trailer gave a deja vu like feeling considering we got reminded of Anees's hit films No Entry and Singh Is King but the second trailer proved Mubarakan is the kind of comedy film, everyone has been dying to watch since the longest time. Here, watch the trailer below:
With Kumaar being the sole lyricist, Mubarakan's music album is a replete with foot-tapping Punjabi numbers that will appease to everyone who loves party numbers, with some of them sure to rule a DJ’s playlist. However, apart from Haathon Mein Thhe Haath, there is not much variety in the album, which can disappoint listeners who wants to listen to some soothing romantic songs. This is an album which is proud of its wholesome Punjabiness and delivers big time.

Mubarakan is a family entertainer which only intends to make you laugh. So spend this weekend with your family as you binge watching Mubarakan! We're sure it won't disappoint you! PS: Don't forget to come back to BollywoodLife and share your reviews with us after watching the film.
