What a lovely thing to wake up to! And now I get to share it with you all. Most important thing to know, SUBTITLES! Even on the little teaser, even just as it is released. I am now in love with these producers.
First, and most importantly, Prabhas looks Gooooood! I’ve been nervous because he’s had kind of that “lost the muscles too fast” look around his face and body, kind of disproportionate. And he never really has a great facial hair system in personal appearances. But he looks great! The modern-y costumes with the layers and the leather work on him, and they hit that sweet spot of unshaven and slightly long hair.
Second, the action looks really good! Not just cool car chases, but stuff like the camera looking through the grill as his hand reaches out to grab a gun, interesting stuff.
Third, Shraddha isn’t terrible! Okay, she only has like two lines, but she’s fine with them. And I know she can do the action stuff, she was good with what they gave her to do in Baaghi.
Now, the downside. These quick-quick-quick edits make me nervous. Sometimes that means they don’t have the whole film pulled together and are just throwing together the little bits that are finalized for the teaser.
I’m also nervous about the dark futuristic look. Because that dark rainy black look can get real boring, real fast, especially if the director is in love with how “different” it is.
And of course, we still have no idea what the plot is. But that’s less important, if it’s great action and good looking Prabhas around a plot that makes no sense, I’m still gonna watch and enjoy it.
Oh oh! I just rewatched and there is one more super important thing! Prabhas sounds like he did his own dubbing for the Hindi version. THANK GOODNESS!!! I want to watch the Hindi so I can kind of understand what they are saying, but I also want my rough Prabhas voice.
