The trailer of this comedy drama film was released on May 14, 2022. The nearly 3-minute long trailer is a power-pack with funny dialogues and situational comedy. It shows the story of that period when there used to be a single television in the village and the one who had it was considered no less than any king.
It shows two families, out of which, only one has a television, and the other expects that their daughter-in-law, played by Mandy will carry the television as her dowry. However, it is not possible, so Kulwinder Billa, who is married to Mandy, takes the visual box from Gurpreet Ghuggi. The fun part is that both families want you to watch TV at the same time.
