The teaser of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s much awaited Netflix original, Serious Men is out and the 30-second clip confirms an interesting watch. The film is set to premiere Netflix on October 2. Based on the novel written by Manu Joseph, Serious Men is directed by Sudhir Mishra and written by Bhavesh Mandalia.
The 30-second teaser shows the sketch of Mumbai’s skyline as we hear Nawazuddin saying, “Ye hai Mumbai. Iske bade bade buildings me baithe hain kuch bade bade serious men. Aise log jo simple si cheezo ko serious le jate hain. Aise log jo condom ki dots jaise cheezo pe question karte hain, Jinhe hum salam jarur karte hain, isliye mai apne bete Aadi ko aisa hi ek serious men banaega (This is Mumbai and there are a few serious men sitting in its big buildings. Those people who have weirdest questions but we still salute them. And that is why I want my son Aadli to become one such serious man).”
Serious Men is about an “ambitious underachiever, agonized with his underprivileged societal status” who plans to encash his son’s newfound fame as a boy-genius to improve his family’s fortunes. It also features Aakshath Das, Shweta Basu Prasad and Nassar, and newcomer Indira Tiwari.
