‘Nikamma’ trailer out; massy entertainer on the cards

Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty is making her way back to the silver screen after over a decade. Her last appearance in a movie was ‘Hungama 2’. That was her first appearance in a movie after 14 years, but ‘Hungama 2’ was a direct to digital release, so ‘Nikamma’ will be her first movie on the big screen in over a decade.

The trailer for the movie dropped yesterday, May 17, 2022. Ahead of the trailer release, Shilpa Shetty posted an announcement saying that she is taking a break from social media and will be back only when she gets a new avatar.

She revealed her new avatar yesterday on social media and it turns out this was her way of generating curiosity for her upcoming movie, ‘Nikamma’.

The movie stars Abhimanyu Dassani and debutante Shirley Setia in the lead. In the trailer of the movie, it is shown that Abhimanyu’s character Sid loves lazing around all week and is a certified ‘Nikamma’. After showing how he lazes and wastes away the days, the trailer introduces Shilpa Shetty who appears in a superhero costume and her job evidently is to get Sid off his butt and get him to do chores around the house.

The trailer then gets intense with the bad guys appearing followed by some massy fight sequences where it is shown that there is a crisis and the otherwise lazy hero steps up to fight evil.

The storyline seems typical of mass entertainer of Tamil and Telugu movies and it seems ‘Nikamma’ is the remake of the 2017 Telugu movie, ‘Middle Class Abbayi’.

‘Nikamma’ was announced way back in 2019 but the pandemic delayed it by several years and the movie is finally making its way to the big screens on 17 June 2022.
