The trailer for Nida Manzoor’s debut feature Polite Society dropped on January 18, and Twitter is spirited. In the merry martial arts romp, Ria Khan (Priya Kansara), a high school student who dreams of becoming a world-class stunt person, is determined to save her sister, Lena (Ritu Arya), from what she believes will be a disastrous wedding. To accomplish this, Ria and her school pals plot the ultimate wedding-heist.
“I love martial arts,” writes Cinelinx. “Combine that with a bit of teen-comedy flair and it’s a recipe for solid humor and action all around.” Punch Drunk Critics adds, “You cannot watch the trailer and come away with anything but a smile on your face.”
This past weekend, Polite Society premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and received a hefty dose of praise, adding to the excitement. So amidst the buzz around the film, which opens in theaters on April 28, here are a few tweets about its trailer.
