There’s a little something for everyone in “A Gentleman,” Bollywood’s summer action comedy which released a jam-packed trailer yesterday. Starring Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez, “A Gentleman” follows a simple working man who gets mixed up with high-level criminals in a case of mistaken identity — or is it? The movie also stars Bollywood action favorite Suniel Shetty, though Shetty has been mum on just how big a role he plays.

The trailer shows a bit of everything one might want in a summer action movie: High-speed car chases, a blossoming romance, nosy parents, and enough jumping out of buildings to make James Bond nod in silent approval. Malhotra removes his shirt in a boat and a car, and Fernandez shows off some pole moves. If we’re going for thrills — mission accomplished.
