First Things First!

I have been busy and haven’t been able to catch up with all the trailers but I loved the Freaky Ali trailer and I am waiting to watch Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s humour on screen. On the other hand, Pink and the MS Dhoni biopic leave you with the feeling that there is much more to watch out for in the films, way beond what the trailers show.

Another trailer which I found very intriguing was the trailer of Shivaay, it looks very intense. Obviously Ajay Devgn has taken action and production value to another level which you realise right after watching the trailer. Diwali will be action packed because of Shivaay.

Suddenly, September looks like the most exciting month as all the films set to release look exciting. Of course, the first look and first trailer of a film decides its fate, and all the trailers that have released so far look very promising and different.

One trailer which gave me goosebumps was the trailer of Shivaay, the background chant just grows on you and so does the way the film has been shot. When you see the trailer you feel like there is so much more to watch in the film, especially the action, seems like Ajay Devgn will take Indian action to another level with this film.

Baar Baar Dekho’s first song Kaala chashma became super-popular, and the trailer talks about time travel, which we haven’t seen in Hindi cinema so far. So that generates some curiosity. Then the Freaky Ali trailer leaves you laughing, and obviously Nawazuddin Siddiqui as the lead is always worth watching. Pink looks intense. Raaz Reebot is a hit franchise and Emraan Hashmi is back in his favourite genre. And after watching the trailer of M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, you can’t wait to watch the film. It promises cricket, emotion, drama and humour.

These days, the first look is the most important factor when it comes to any film and that’s why a lot of planning and research goes behind giving out the first trailer, as the audience decides with the very first trailer whether they should watch a film or not. And among all the trailers Freaky Ali, Baar Baar Dekho, Pink, Raaz Reebot, Banjo, Shivaay, MS Dhoni biopic they all have made the trailers keeping their audience in mind.

Baar Baar Dekho is a commercial film and gives out the vibe of a clean family film and that’s why they put the song first. Freaky Ali is a Nawazuddin Siddiqui film as the trailer promises mind blowing performance and humour. Pink looks edgy and is an intense court room drama, the trailer shows you some hard hitting dialogue, that’s one film I am waiting for.

Raaz Reebot has its own audience and I am sure the film will have some brilliant melodies. Banjo looks very interesting it speaks about a music band from local place and as Ravi Jadhav has delivered such good films in Marathi it is something everyone will watch.

MS Dhoni biopic is a film that entire nation will watch for Dhoni, to know Dhoni. The trailer is outstanding you feel like clapping and seems like you are actually watching the match, it’s the perfect trailer.

And the trailer which left me speechless was the high octane action-packed Shivaay, which sends adrenaline soaring as high as the snow-capped mountains it’s shot on. This film will definitely take our Hindi cinema to another level, the production looks outstanding. Awesome action. Truly world class!

Bollywood has evolved over time, and movies like Pink showcase legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan, who is playing a person with a bipolar disorder. These genres are spreading awareness among the masses in the best possible way. On the other hand, movies like M.S. Dhoni… give you a rush and make us look forward to the film’s release because it is about our favourite Indian cricketer MS Dhoni’s inspirational cricket battle. Baar Baar Dekho, a love story that unfolds through flashbacks and flash forwards will be captivating for the audience and Raaz Reboot will engage the audience with its thrill series, as usual. Viewers will certainly look forward to this one. We foresee these movies as great entertainers for our viewers.

Visually all the recent trailers are looking very appealing. Baar Baar Dekho looks vivacious and hooks a viewer on the conceptual level. MS Dhoni biopic talks about everything behind the skipper’s super success. Riteish Deshmukh gets his rockstar look in Banjo and Pink is touted to be a suspense thriller that reflects on the dubious morals of today’s times. In Freaky Ali’s trailer, Nawazuddin fits right into the premise and steals the show as a golfer. Shivaay’s trailer is intriguing on all levels. It’s looking truly international.
