The trailer showed Sadiya Siddiqui informing Sanjay Mishra that their cow named Rukhsaar has been stolen. The two wander through town asking people about their missing cow. However, they have a different problem as they fear that the news about their cow has spread like wildfire and there will be dire consequences if they cannot find it.
Sanjay Mishra goes to the police to file a missing persons report for his cow. However, the agent played by Nawazuddin Siddiquic claims he killed his cow. Meanwhile, Tigmanshu Dhulia Sanjay warns that the matter has now become political and that no one will listen to his defense if he does not have the cow. His wife also dreams of his death. Sanjay Mishra, fearful for his life, goes on a mission to steal another cow to replace Rukshaar. His friend, played by Mukesh Bhatt, supports him every step of the way and even helps him pretend to be a Hindu.
The trailer and the cast of the film have received high praise from viewers. One said of Sanjay Mishra: “He can play every role with such perfection. Another gem in Indian cinema.” Another said of him in a movie with Nawazuddin and Tigmanshu: “Three legends in one movie. Great.” One commented on the plot: “Another entertainer with deep messages for today’s society”, while another praised the creators for choosing a “brilliant and courageous subject.”
The film is written and directed by Sai Kabir, known for his work in Revolver Rani, Kismat Konnection and The Shaukeens, among others. The release is scheduled for August 26 in theaters.
