‘Helicopter Eela’ trailer: Watch Kajol as a mother who can’t leave her son alone

Pradeep Sarkar’s movie will be released on September 7.

The trailer of Pradeep Sarkar’s Helicopter Eela was released on the birthday of lead actress Kajol on Sunday. The September 7 release sees Kajol playing a single mother who fulfills her musical ambitions while trying to create a bond with her adolescent son (Riddhi Sen).

Helicopter Eela also stars Neha Dhupia and Tota Roy Chowdhury. The movie has been produced by Ajay Devgn FFilms and Jayantilal Gada’s Pen India Limited.

The trailer reveals the ups, downs and in-betweens that mark the relationship between Eela and her son. She enrols in the same class as him to complete her education, but the forced closeness grates on his nerves. A rift between mother and son encourages Eela to revisit her past as a singer and musician.

The film is based on Anand Gandhi’s Gujarati play Beta Kaagdo. The screenplay is by Gandhi and Mitesh Shah. In an interview in 2017, Gandhi revealed that the play was loosely based on his mother, and that he had been thinking of a directing a movie adaptation himself.

“In the last 12 years, I have been thinking of adapting the play into a film,” Gandhi told PTI. “If Ship of Theseus had not happened, this would have been my first film.”

Innovations in payment options are making premium products more accessible

No need for documentation or applications to own high-quality items

Credit cards have long been associated with an aspirational lifestyle. The ability to buy something out of your wish list without needing to pay the entire amount can tempt even the most disciplined shoppers. A designer couch, the latest mobile phone, a home entertainment system or a car, as long as you can pay back the borrowed amount within the grace period, your credit card purchases know no bounds.

However, credit cards, pre-approved or not, come with a number of complications. The tedious application procedure starts with the collection and submission of various documents. Moreover, there are several reasons your credit card application might get rejected including low income that compromises your repayment capability, certain occupations or work history, mistakes in the application form, possession of multiple cards or even a failed physical verification attempt. While applying for a credit card might have become easier, the success of the application can take time and effort.

Credit card owners are regaled with benefits all year round with attractive EMIs, offers on purchases, airline miles, lounge access, cashbacks and a plethora of exclusive deals. It’s worth noting that debit card owners don’t get even half of these benefits and offers, despite the sheer size of the debit card customer base in the country (846.7 million compared to 36.2 million credit card holders).

This imbalance of finance and purchase options between credit card and debit card owners is slowly changing. For instance, the new EMIs on debit card feature on Flipkart ensures affordability and accessibility to Indian consumers who don’t own credit cards. The payment innovation increases the purchasing power of the consumer. By providing credit access to non-credit card holders, expensive and high-quality products are made more affordable for a large base of customers without denting their cash flow. The video below comically captures a scenario that people who don’t own a credit card will relate to.


Flipkart’s EMIs on debit card feature doesn’t require a minimum account balance, documentation, nor does it charge a processing fee, making online shopping a seamless experience even for more high-end products. To find out if you’re eligible for EMIs on debit card, see here.
