On Friday afternoon, Netflix India released the trailer of their new web film Mrs. Serial Killer starring Jacqueline Fernandez, Manoj Bajpayee and Mohit Raina in lead roles.
Mrs Serial Killer is a story of a doctor played by Manoj Bajpayee, who gets framed for a series of murders. Then his wife played by Jacqueline Fernandez, sets out committing crimes exactly like the serial killer to prove her husband’s innocence. From the trailer we can assume that the film will revolve around how far the wife will go for her love.
The 1 minute 44 seconds trailer of the film contain very few wow moments that are not enough to excite the audience for its release. The trailer got mix responses. Till the time of writing this article, the trailer has 596K views with 35K likes and 2.3K dislikes. The comment section of the trailer is flooded with criticism. Some people were happy and some were not.
On paper, Mrs. Serial killer might be a intense crime thriller but in the trailer it didn’t felt that much. The intensity in the trailer is very low. When you see a murder happening, you need to feel scared but that’s the thing which is missing here. The creators failed to add suspense in several scenes here.
Jacqueline Fernandez was shown as the main lead in this trailer. Finally after sometime, she gets to feature in a film where she was not used just as an eye candy. Her last few ventures were not that successful and her last hit was back in 2017 (Judwaa 2).
As we know that Jacqueline belongs to a Sri Lankan family, her Hindi is not that good. Here she tried her best but her dialogue deliveries were dry. It didn’t felt natural. It felt like she was forcing herself. There was very less intensity in her dialogues even there, were it was needed. Her character has so much to do in this film, if she has executed it well then it might become her carrier’s best performance till date.
Manoj Bajpayee is considered to be one of the best actor of the country. In the trailer, he didn’t have much to do. He got some few lines and very less screen time in the whole trailer. It maybe the creator’s choice to not reveal anything about his character here.
If there is something really interesting about the trailer then it was surely Mohit Raina and Manoj Bajpayee, who were sharing the screen maybe for the first time, what’s better than that. Mohit Raina again playing a cop in this film. His last project, Bhaukaal where he played the role of an IPS is currently a massive hit.
From the comments on the trailer, it seems that people are only excited because they will get to see their two favourite actors together. In the last one year both the actors have been a part of a hugely successful web series. Both have made a name for them in the minds of the digital viewers.
The film was directed by Shirish Kunder who has directed films like Jaan-E-Mann (2006), Joker (2012) and Kriti (2016) in the past. Mrs. Serial Killer is scheduled to release on May 1. Let’s just hope that the film will be a lot better than the trailer.
