Finally the trailer of much awaited Vishal Bhardwaj’s war romance drama is here. Shot extensively in Arunachal Pradesh, Rangoon is set against World War II when the Japanese Army entered the borders of India. The love triangle featuring Kangana, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid is supposedly inspired by the Hollywood classic Casablanca featuring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. The music of the film is composed by Vishal Bhardwaj. The film is up for a February 24. 2017 release. It was in news for the unusual casting of Kareena Kapoor Khan’s ex-boyfriend Shahid Kapoor and her husband Saif Ali Khan. It was also talked about due to the looks of the lead cast with Saif and Shahid both sporting a mustache.
Trust only Vishal Bhardwaj to bring out the best in his actors. The three powerhouse performers coming together for a Vishal Bhardwaj film is a dream come true. It was good to see Saif Ali Khan in a Vishal Bhardwaj’s world after his best performance till date in Vishal’s Omkara. Ditto goes for Shahid Kapoor, who has done his best work with Vishal in Haider and Kaminey. Kangana Ranaut as usual is top notch in the trailer. Like Haider‘s trailer, this one too is high on background score and when director of the film is also the music composer of the film, music becomes the demand of the story. Cinematography of the film is just breath taking. Kudos to the makers for recreating the era of World War II in this one.
Nothing much. This film was already one of my most awaited films of 2017, trailer has just marked its stamp on it.
Overall, Saif Ali Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut being directed by Vishal Bhardwaj in a World War II love triangle is a sure to set fireworks on the box office. I am totally hyped, here’s waiting for the songs.
