The trailer of the much-awaited Vishal Bhardwaj movie, Rangoon is finally out. After teasing the audience with three posters, the movie’s Twitter handle shared the trailer on Thursday night.
Shot mainly in Arunachal Pradesh, Rangoon is set against the backdrop of World War II, when India was also fighting its own battle for independence.
The love triangle between the leads, Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan is stunningly portrayed.
Kangana plays Julia who is a popular film actress, and Saif plays a filmmaker in love with her. Shahid plays Nawab Malik who is a soldier who happens to meet her when she is sent to Burma. What follows is a story of love, war and deceit.
Vishal Bhardwaj, like always, has brought out the best from the actors. Casting Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan together in a movie surely did raise a few eyebrows. But looking at them in the trailer, sporting those moustaches, has probably proved Bhardwaj’s point.
Both Shahid and Saif have done some of their best works in Vishal Bhardwaj movies. One cannot easily forget Saif as Langda Tyagi in Bhardwaj’s Omkara.
Shahid also proved his strengths as an actor in movies like Kaminey and Haider. Kangana Ranaut is her usual outstanding self in the trailer.
Like all other Vishal Bhardwaj movies, this one also seems to be high on background score. That is what happens when the director of the film is also the music composer. The cinematographers have flawlessly recreated the World War II era.
The movie is set to be released on 24 February and is bound to set the screens on fire this year.
