The trailer of much anticipated Sanju has just released today and we have a lot to say about it. Along with Ranbir Kapoor the film has an assembly line of actors who have their presence in the trailer : Paresh Rawal, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Boman Irani, Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal, Manisha Koirala and Jim Sarbh.
The film’s teaser released a month back and that really had set everyone talking about it. It gave a sense of quirky yet intense take on the controversial life of Sanjay Dutt. One felt the rush and the pressor just in that roughly 60 seconds of a teaser. And that had set the carpet for an even more exciting trailer. So please don’t blame us for our sky-high expectations.
The trailer that released today just paled in comparison to its fantastic teaser. It felt like it tried to encapsulate every episode and every character in those 3 minutes but forgot to keep the pace. Sure, there are traces where the scope of superlative acting is visible. One knows it deep inside that Ranbir Kapoor is going to give a performance to remember and rave about.
Also the other characters came just out of nowhere, especially the ever dependent Paresh Rawal. It felt like the editor of the promo was forced to show all characters irrespective of how do they connect dots in the trailer and the editor just complied.
However not all is bad. There are couple of good things too – the song that plays in the latter half of the trailer is intense and suited the rhythm of the trailer. And the best bit of the trailer is the last one with Mahesh Manjrekar which is sure to bring the house down when it plays in theater.
All said and done Sanju is bound to take a flying start at the ticket window as it has already gathered fair deal of momentum around it. Plus Ranbir Kapoor himself is a selling point and we know he can draw the audience in with right films.
Here’s hoping the film turns out to be far better than the trailer. The film released on 29th June, 2018.
