Jabariya Jodi


The plot revolves around the tradition of kidnapping the groom, which is prevalent in Bihar. This rom-com stars Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra.

The film showcases Bihar’s unique wedding culture, the ‘Pakadwa Vivah’, which involves the abduction of the groom by the bride’s family who is later forced to marry her. This concept of marriage, though a serious topic, has been dealt with humour. Abhay Singh (Sidharth Malhotra) is a local goon who kidnaps grooms and forces them to get married to the bride as a part of the Pakadwa Vivah concept. A politically ambitious young man, Abhay Singh aims to be an MLA someday. His focus shifts with the entry of Babli Yadav (Parineeti Chopra), a force to be reckoned with. Abhay and Babli seem to be on the verge of getting married but Abhay backs out citing his political ambitions. This angers Babli to the extent that she decides to kidnap Abhay and force him to marry her.
