The Besharam trailer opens with hero Ranbir Kapoor taking a leak in the classic sarson ke khet while singing a Punjabi rendition of ‘Tujhe Dekha Toh Yeh Jaana Sanam’. It really looks like he’s literally, ahem, watering all over the traditional romantic notions and maybe even his chocolate boy image in general. Because this trailer is Ranbir as never seen before.
He is flashy, loud and obnoxious as an over-the-top leading man. Ranbir is playing to the gallery with his pelvic thrusts, relentless swaying and some deeply exaggerated action. It’s no wonder since the director is Abhinav Kashyap who made Dabangg, one of the highest grossing Bollywood films yet. And yes, there is a Dabangg reference in the trailer too.
Insert larger-than-life sequences which include a missile launcher, Ranbir somersaulting in the air and shattering roof of the car on which he lands. Newcomer Pallavi Sharda looks the part of a Punjaban, but one still needs to see the film for her acting chops.
And see it, we shall, on 2nd October, 2013. Will you be there?
