This is the first of 3 trailers that came out today, and they are all so important I am giving them each their own post! This is the first one to put up, because I think it is the one there is the most to say about.
First thing to say, is that the trailer is only available on the Hotstar website. But not in America. WHO DOES THAT?!?!?!? It’s a TRAILER!!!! It’s an ad for your movie! Why would you try to limit access to an advertisement?!?!?
Anyway, for now, here is a semi-illegal version from youtube:
I don’t know….. I’m getting Shaandar vibes. It feels like it is so mannered it may have lost track of the emotions of it. Great editing, great pacing, all of that is good. But was there ever a moment, besides right at the opening when little Ranbir fades into grown up Ranbir, that felt like it gave some real emotion?
Also, a bit extreme in the “safari adventure” kind of thing. Maybe the thinking is that the family audience will enjoy all the running animals and this that and the other thing. But personally, I just find it boring. I don’t want a nature program to suddenly invade my Hindi movie.
Generally, based on the minimal information currently available, I am voting a strong “No!”. But, once I see a song trailer and get more info and actually go watch it on April 7th, I could always change my mind.
