The trailer of Vishal Bhardwaj’s much-awaited film ‘Rangoon’ is out. The film is a period drama, it tells a story of intense passion, set against the backdrop of World War II. Starring Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor in the lead roles.
Kangana Ranaut plays the role of Julia, a film actress from the 1940s, who gets sent to Burma to entertain the Indian troop lead by Shahid Kapoor’s character Nawab Malik. Saif Ali Khan, on the other hand, plays the character of a possessive filmmaker who will not let go of his muse Julia, especially to a soldier.
The fact that Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan play their characters to perfection is taken granted for, as is the credibility of being a Vishal Bhardwaj film. Basically, expectations are high.
We then see the three is various instances through the trailer as they fall in and out of love, and work through war and deceit. Rangoon will definitely grab your attention. It transports you back in time (barring some tacky CGI planes and war graphics), when romance was unwinding, conflicted instead of being instant, and when pencil mustaches were in vogue.
Rangoon is set to release on 24 February. Watch the trailer here:
