The trailer of Irrfan Khan's next Hollywood project titled 'Puzzle' looks delightful

Puzzle premiered at 2018 Sundance Film Festival and received good reviews from various worldwide publications.

Starring Kelly Macdonald in the lead role, Puzzle is the story of Agnes, who lives a monotonous, mundane life but her life finds objective and meaning when she puts together a jigsaw puzzle for the first time as an adult. She finds her calling in solving jigsaw puzzles which leads her to Irrfan's character Robert, an accomplished businessman who is also into solving jigsaw puzzles. Puzzle, meanwhile, is scheduled to release on July 13.

I said on my review, "With its methodically tidy structure and a script that, beat for beat, lays the pieces to be a quintessential crowd-pleaser, Puzzle fits together like a ideal, well... you know".

After playing a billionaire in Jurassic World, Hollywood's favourite Khan, Irrfan is all set to play another billionaire in his upcoming Hollywood flick Puzzle. Directed by Marc Turtletaub, the movie stars Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald (Trainspotting, Gosford Park) with Irrfan Khan in a parallel important role.

PUZZLE is a closely observed portrait of Agnes, who has reached her early 40s without ever venturing far from home, family or the tight-knit immigrant community in which she was raised by her widowed father. For Macdonald's sheltered character Agnes, that starts with the literal opening of a birthday gift, one that contains a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle that ignites in her not only a new passion, but also the long-dormant sense that she's excellent at something.
