Arshad Warsi is back again with a rib tickler, but this time in a detective role. His partner in investigation is Soha Ali Khan.

The 60-second long trailer of the film titled "Mr Joe B Carvalho" gives a rough insight into the film's plot that includes several hilarious situations and funny one-liners as Arshad takes on an investigation. The comedy caper also features Shakti Kapoor and funnyman Javed Jaffery in supporting roles.

The film will see Soha slipping into a bikini for the first time on screen, drawing an immediate comparison with her mother Sharmila Tagore's two-piece that became an instant rage in the 1960s. A passing shot of Soha's bikini scene is also included in the teaser.

The film may also remind one of Hollywood flick "Johhny English". Rowan Atkisnson of "Mr Bean" fame played a detective who despite all the goof-ups managed to solve his case.

The Arshad starrer is the first of the many Bollywood films which are to follow in the same genre. Incidentally, Ranbir Kapoor's "Jagga Jassos", Sushant Singh Rajput's 'Byomkesh Bakshia" and another Vidya Balan film all fall in the same genre and are slated for a 2014 release.

Produced by BR Entertainment, "Mr Joe B Carvalho" is set to hit screens on 3 January 2014.
