Without resorting to double meaning dialogues and any skin show, Taapsee Pannu in the trailer of Haseen Dillruba succeeded in portraying wantonness better than anything Bindu or Padma Khanna ever did in their hate-days. The difference is, Tapsee is the heroine of the show which makes the moral compass of the cinematic hero/heroine move a full 360 degrees.
The trailer of Haseen Dillruba (strangely director Vinyl Mathews’ first film was titled Hasee Toh Phasee, will the third be Haseena Jo Kabhi Phasee Naa? is deliberately kitschy and pulpy, like those novels on railway stations in the1970s. Taapsee’ s Rani seems to be a fan of one such pulp writer named Dinesh Pandit. Is he modeled on Gulshan Nanda? She is a travesty, non-conformist wife and a middle-finger daughter-in-law who seems to have bumped off her angelic(read: boring) husband (Vikrant Massey) for a roaring affair with the town’s stud(Harshvardhan Rane).

Yup, this woman has a strong appetite for adventure ,sex, infidelity and murder(not necessarily in that order). And she isn’t afraid to display her appetite, no matter how sleazy it makes her look.Just where the plot takes her lust for life remains to be seen. Says Taapsee Pannu, “Haseen Dillruba was a film I had a very strong gut feeling about the day I heard the basic idea from Kanika. Unfortunately I wasn’t the first choice for the film and it came to me after all their options were exhausted. And the good old saying that, if it’s meant for you it will come to you stands true for this case. It’s not just a beautifully written mystery, it has such wonderful characters involved which is candy in an actor’s hands. I am glad I got to experiment with my look and performance with this one because I am definitely not the go to person for this kind of character conventionally and we all love to take risks here.” Also read: Haseen Dillruba: Taapsee Pannu Treats Fans With A New Poster Of Her Upcoming Thriller Co-starring Vikrant Massey And Harshvardhan Rane And It Will Leave You Excited
Vikrant Massey adds, “Haseen Dillruba is the perfect mix of humour, quirk, revenge and romance. I hope it surprises the audience as much as it surprised me when I heard it first. It was an enthralling experience shooting for it. Let us all watch the mysteries unravel itself and learn important life lessons from our beloved Pandit Ji.”
Harshvardhan Rane who plays Taapsee’s lust interest is happy to be in the film. “I am honoured to be in the same frame with some of our country's finest talent. Taapsee and Vikrant, have one thing in common I could never make out if they were joking or if they were serious. I always had to look for tiny nuances to understand the pretext. Working on Haseen Dillruba also gave me a chance to associate with the best film makers, be it Aanand L Rai sir, Vinil sir and Kanika ma'am. I was blown away with the script, a classic whodunit that will keep you guessing until the very end.”
