Trailer Talk: BADLAPUR (2015)
Bollywood’s latest romantic chocolate hero attempts to shed his image with what looks to be a badass revenge movie, directed a man who’s known for his own brand of filmmaking that is a little different than what Bollywood is used to. I give you Varun Dhawan in ‘Badlapur’ !
[schema type=”movie” name=”Badlapur” director=”Sriram Raghavan” actor_1=”Varun Dhawan” actor_2=”Nawazuddin Siddiqui” actor_2=”Yami Gautam” actor_3=”Huma Qureshi” actor_4=”Divya Dutta”]
Only 3 films old in the industry, Varun Dhawan, son of legendary comedy Director David Dhawan, has only done roles that are conventionally appealing to mainstream audiences; movies like ‘Student Of The Year’, (my Review here) ‘Main Tera Hero’ and ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania‘, showed us his ability to display the typical attributes that make up a Bollywood leading man.
In ‘Badlapur’, Dhawan looks completely like a man who has ‘lost everything’ and is out for revenge, and it seems to be his most intensely dramatic role yet. The movie is directed by Sriram Raghavan who is the man behind movies like ‘Johnny Gaddar’ & ‘Agent Vinod’, (my Review here) and is known for his unconventionally interesting technique, and is quite adept at exhilarating storytelling.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui also stars, most likely as the antagonist of the movie. The film also features Yami Gautam, Huma Qureshi and Divya Dutta in, what looks to be, a significant role. Dutta has made a career of supporting roles, and I’m hoping this is her time to shine in a movie where her character gets the spotlight.
