Trailer of 'Half-Girlfriend' – based on Chetan Bhagat's novel – is out now
Balaji Motion Pictures released the trailer of their upcoming feature film based on author Chetan Bhagat's bestselling title yesterday and it's already got over 3.5 lakh views.

The official trailer for 'Half Girlfriend' was released by the production house's YouTube channel on Sunday, 9th April. The description of the video reads: "Balaji Motion Pictures presents 'Half Girlfriend – Dost se Zyada, Girlfriend se kam', an adaptation of Chetan Bhagats's bestselling novel 'Half Girlfriend'. Directed by Mohit Suri, the intense love story sets out to explore the 'grey area' in relationships today; the in-between space, between two people."

The trailer looks like a quirky, breezy, fun watch bang at the beginning but half-way through, it gets intense with shots that give the audience a glimpse into a very asymmetric storyline. It opens with a couple of establishing shots that bring clarity about the premise, introduces the leads and builds on the fluctuating equations that take shape between them.

"Starring Arjun Kapoor, as Madhav Jha & Shraddha Kapoor as Riya Somani, the film is set against the backdrop of three distinct worlds of Delhi, Patna & New York.", reads Balaji Motion Pictures' YouTube channel.

We're already aware of how author Chetan Bhagat was edited out of the film and how he's been absolutely benevolent about it. As the trailer releases, the author has shared still photographs and static posters of the film on his social media handles, thereby asserting his supportive intentions for the film.

Bhagat's original is a rural boy-meets-urban girl story, set in rural Bihar, Patna, New Delhi and New York wherein boy sets out to win lady love.

"Madhav wanted a relationship. Riya didn't. So, she decided to be his 'Half Girlfriend'. More than a friend, less than a girlfriend", the celluloid adaptation sounds like it is set to remain true to the novel.

Half Girlfriend –Dost se Zyada, Girlfriend se kam –releases worldwide on May 19th.
