Trailer time! I have to leave for work in 15 minutes, let’s see if I can write this up before then.
Two new trailers, both of which look original and interesting and all good things! How often does that happen?
First, the Telugu film “Oh Baby” with subtitles (yaaay!). I love how Samantha Akkineni, post marriage, is doing even more interesting roles than before marriage. And the industry is giving them to her! Once again, contradiction to the stereotype of the Telugu industry being bad for heroines.
And this is a particularly interesting concept, a woman’s age and appearance is seen as defining her so much, I like that they are going there in terms of an older woman becoming young, still having the confidence and guts she gained in old age, but now being seen by those around her as a viable marriage/sexual partner.
Only question I have, how are they going to end this thing? The easy boring ending would be for her to choose to age up again and leave a sad “good-bye” not for her young boyfriend and never see him again. But I hope they don’t do that. The most controversial ending would be her aging up again, and her boyfriend tracking her down and saying he is still in love with her. But I don’t think they will go there. The best ending would be something simple like she is hit by a truck and forgets her past life and thinks she really is 24 and can start fresh.
And then there is the Diljit Dosanjh-Kriti Sanon movie Arjun Patiala I have been looking forward to for ages, and it does not disappoint! No subtitles (booo!) but I am sure they will be added soon in the same inexplicable way they always are. I am hoping most of you can get it even without subtitles. It’s just super tongue in cheek and spoofy about a police movies in a very clever way. I honestly can’t tell if the movie itself will have the same spoof tone, or if it will be funny in some other unrevealed way.
Oh, and it also has an interesting heroine role! Looks like Kriti’s comic timing will be used, not just her pretty face. Really, all around lots to look forward to.
