A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature
Kangana Ranaut is one of the few actresses in Bollywood who can carry a movie on their shoulders alone. Having already won two back to back National Awards with Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Kangana is the most sought after actress in the Hindi film industry. Kangana is renowned for delivering hard hitting performances that over the years have made her a crowd favorite. But what really makes her stand out in Bollywood is her tremendous range as an actor and her commitment to perform those characters to a tee. If we look at her recent films we can easy figure out that Kangana actually makes a conscious effort to ensure that each of her role is different than the last one: be it her role of a naïve middle-class Punjabi girl in Vikas Bahl's Queen or that of a savage politician in Sai Kabir's Revolver Rani.
We will next get to see Kangana in Vishal Bhardwaj's Rangoon and that film would be followed by Hansal Mehta's Simran. Speaking of Rangoon, Kangana plays an actress in the film in pre-independence India. Her character of course is central to the film. We can again expect nothing but best from Kangana. Rangoon, produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, is a period drama set in the backdrop of WWII. The recently released trailer introduced us to the character played by Kangana: a stage performer named Julia aka "Toofan Ki Beti". Saif Ali Khan plays the character of an opportunist businessman called Rusi Billimoria who happens to be Julia's love interest and also her promoter. Shahid Kapoor plays a soldier called Nawab Malik. Rangoon has a love triangle at its heart with Kangana romancing both Saif as well as Shahid.
Saif hasn't had a blockbuster at the box-office in the recent years. Average directors often fail to fully utilize his talent but Bhardwaj is someone who is known to get the best out of his actors. Saif's performance also came in his film Omkara, which was an adaptation of Shakespeare's Othello. Once again in Rangoon we can expect Saif to be at the best of the game. The trailer has already set the expectations quite high. Shahid Kapoor too have given some of his best performances under Bhardwaj: be it Kaminey or Haider. Shahid is already riding high on the success of Udta Punjab. Already his lip-locking with Kangana in the trailer of Rangoon is creating buzz all around.
Rangoon is slated to release on 24th February, 2017. For now you can check out this cool video that presents exclusive behind the scenes footage of making of the official trailer of Rangoon:
