The trailer of Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer is out and it seems like a full-blown entertainer. The film features Malhotra in a double role.

The actor plays Gaurav, who is the perfect marriage-material with a secure job and house, whereas Rishi is the risk-taker who is jumping walls and dodging bullets. The film also stars Suniel Shetty in a negative role, which is reminiscent of his stellar Raghavan Dutta character from Main Hoon Na.

The good guy wants to marry Jacqueline Fernandez, but she wants someone with a little more thrill and excitement in his life. That is when Rishi makes an entry. Poor Gaurav's whole life is turned around when Shetty's entourage mistake him for Rishi, who they are on a hunt for.

On the looks of it, the film does not seem to have a very intricate plot. Rather, it seems that it is a simple case of mistaken identity. However, a few highlights in the form of Shetty's tremendous screen presence, some action-packed sequences, Malhotra and Fernandez's chemistry and spot-on casting in general uplift the film from being a basic entertainer. Interesting visuals and catchy background music makes the trailer seem aesthetically pleasing.

The film was initially called Reloaded, but was eventually changed to A Gentleman, which doesn't seem like a bad decision in hindsight. The title captures the essence of the film. The movie is directed by Krishna D.K. and Raj Nidimoru and is set to release on 25 August, 2017.
