Do Aur Do Pyaar Trailer Review: Vidya Balan-Pratik Gandhi's off-beat chemistry meets refreshing story

Relationships are inherently complicated. Be it your dramatic ek-tarfa pyaar, passionate romance post-marriage or the ray of an extramarital affair, it's never as easy as films have been projected for all these years. Breaking through the rose-tinted glasses of filmy romance, Shirsha Guha Thakurta's directorial, Do Aur Do Pyaar, taps into the lesser-explored side of love between two couples. 

The trailer of Do Aur Do Pyaar released today digitally and features Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, Ileana D'Cruz and Sendhil Ramamurthy. Based on the 2017 film, The Lovers, this rom-com revolves around the lack of romantic spark generated between Vidya and Pratik. They seek solace and validation for the love and passion they hold within themselves from Snedhil and Ileana respectively. Will circumstances bring them closer? Do Aur Do Pyaar shall tell on April 19.

Do Aur Do Pyaar's trailer begins on a grim yet hilarious note with Vidya and Pratik fighting over Bengali vegetarian food and steel glasses. The scene in the kitchen involves the characters yelling and being aggressive without losing grip over the slight room for humour. The bickering between Vidya and Pratik sets the tone right for the rest of the trailer. Do Aur Do Pyaar is a feel-good, refreshing change from darker subjects. With summer vacation ongoing, the film could be the perfect break from stress with its light-hearted approach. The tonality is relaxed and doesn't hammer with unrealistic narration. Love is complicated and it is served in the authentic form. 

Asking the audience to accept love truly, the makers of Do Aur Do Pyaar don't intend to be preachy but haven't even lost touch with the content and vision. Yes, the trailer might not give away the complete picture of the plot but it certainly builds curiosity. This factor will not sit down well with many. 

While Vidya and Pratik steal the limelight, Ileana and Sendhil are underplayed. There's no excitement or buzz for their characters and their graphs. The music is soothing and balances the drama and modern approach. 

However, what might not work in Do Aur Do Pyaar's favour is the underwhelming chemistry. The spark is missing but much better than what's shown in the teaser.  There's a will to watch this, but the target audience needs to be defined better. 

Do Aur Do Pyaar is a theatrical release. Watch the trailer here:
