It was just announced yesterday that it would be attached to Sultan, and I guess they decided to let it out a few days early online. Whatever the reason is, I don’t care, I’m just glad I can watch it!
Here is the trailer:
Looks like it will be a pretty close version of the real life story, but best of all, it will focus more on the aftermath than the crime. And I find the aftermath much more interesting, with the various forces trying to influence the trial, the effect on the Indian legal system, and all of that. And there is also the little implication of “traitor?” from the posters. I still don’t see how that would work, my best guess is that it is just a red-herring the prosecution will try to pin on him.
What it probably won’t cover is the part that I find most interesting, after it was all over, Rustom and his wife moved to Canada and lived in Toronto until 2003. So some random nice older couple in Canada were the center of the most famous crime/sex scandal in Indian history!
Oh, and most importantly, Akshay looks gooooooooooooooood!
