It’s films like Qissa and Lunchbox that remind us why Irrfan Khan is often regarded as one of the finest actors we have today. Qissa is a punjabi film that tells a very important story and the trailer manages to incredibly pack a massive punch in its short duration. We see Irrfan and Tisca Chopra as a couple expecting a child. When the child is born, Irrfan announces that it is a boy even though you realize that a girl has been born. We see the child growing up as a boy, things turn truly ugly when we see that she is even married off to another girl.
The movie incredibly underlines the issue of gender discrimination in Punjab and a father’s wish to see his girl get all that a usually would. We absolutely love the trailer mainly because of how well it is presented. Tillotma Shome as the young girl is very good though Irrfan Khan is the one who truly steals the show. The way he manages to make a massive impact by underplaying on screen is amazing.
Qissa has already done the rounds of the festival circuit and is finally ready for release back home. You can check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
