The trailer of this year’s one of the most awaited films, ‘Sanju’ released today. The film that stars Ranbir Kapoor, Boman Irani, Mahesh Manjrekar, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal and Jim Sarbh among others, has been creating waves on the social media.
Ranbir Kapoor of late hasn’t been having good luck at the box office but it looks like the film might turn the tables for him. Here are five reasons why we think that the trailer of the film ‘Sanju’ is a strong cinematic promise:
1. Sanjay Dutt’s life is not glorified but shown with its dark shades:
There is a certain belief that a film star’s life is all glitter and no pain. And most autobiographical movies are glorified but Sanju isn’t and that is evident from the trailer. We see details about Dutt’s sex life, his drug addiction, his tryst with the underworld, his fair share of controversies and the time he spent in jail – everything looks as close to reality as possible. And not good. This is what will make the audiences want to watch the film.
2. It is a film with different actors looking like different gems to one crown:
We see known faces essaying the roles of different characters of Dutt’s life – it almost looks like a colourful drama with a lot of actors in it, playing on the stage. Whether it is Anushka Sharma’s mysterious character or Sonam Kapoor’s portrayal of Tina Munim or Vicky Kaushal playing Dutt’s best friend – it’s all very well-acted. Special mention to Paresh Rawal’s portrayal of Sunil Dutt.
3. Ranbir Kapoor’s acting in the trailer & his portrayal of Dutt’s different phases of life:
Kapoor has imitated Dutt’s gait, style of speaking and his entire personality! His metamorphosis is excellent. Also, we have seen his acting in the teaser and trailer that shows the hard work the actor has put in. We also see how effortlessly Kapoor dresses as Dutt of different ages & his dialogues are very intriguing. This makes a film a much-anticipated one.
4. The setting of a bygone era & revelation of certain unknown things:
Sanju is a window to the past. The trailer shows how Ranbir Kapoor as Sanju, keeps saying he is not a terrorist. What exactly happened back then? Why did Dutt have AK 56 with him? What was his equation with the underworld? Who were the women in his life? What made him spring back? It is like the trailer says, ‘A true story you won’t believe.’
5. The gripping theme music:
Both the teaser and the trailer open with lovely music that instantly catches your attention. And the background score and music continue to add pace and intensity to the film. It clearly adds zing to the different emotions that Kapoor expresses in the film’s trailer and teaser.
Here’s the trailer:
