After their hit pairing in Partner, Katrina Kaif was approached for an extended cameo opposite Govinda in Life Partner, being produced by Abbas-Mustan. The comedy film is Rumi Jaffery’s second directorial venture after God Tussi Great Ho.
Unfortunately Katrina was unable to do the film because she was headed to London, so the makers roped in Amrita Rao to star opposite ChiChi, who plays a divorce lawyer. Also starring in the film are the jodi’s of Fardeen Khan and Genelia D’Souza as well as Tusshar Kapoor with Prachi Desai.
So what is Life Partner about?
Companionship, togetherness, love… marriage; the phrase ‘Life Partner’ has different connotations for different people. There is someone made for everyone, including Karan, Bhavesh and Jeet.
Karan (Fardeen Khan) and Sanjana (Genelia D’Souza) are madly in love with each other. Marriage is the next step to cement their relationship. But is ‘love marriage’ the right way to be?
For Bhavesh (Tusshar Kapoor), his life partner, Prachi (Prachi Desai) comes with the approval of his family. But is ‘arranged marriage’ the way forward? Is it right to prioritize family over marriage? Does Prachi have to prove herself as a worthy daughter-in-law to qualify as an ideal wife?
Jeet (Govinda) is an accomplished divorce lawyer who does not believe in the institution of marriage. He can’t be monogamous and is often responsible for his getting his clients divorced. But is ‘no marriage’ the right policy? Will Jeet ever find a partner and accept matrimony?
Life Partner is about three protagonists struggling on the marital marathon but on different tracks – three good friends with three different approaches to life.
Life Partner releases worldwide on August 14 by Studio 18.
