Movie trailer Heroine- Sedate,Grim and Prurient

The first thing you will tell yourself  after watching the  trailer of the movie “Heroine“would be ” Yes, its a Madhur Bhandarkar film”

This trailer promises  a movie boasting of all the ingredients a typical Bhandarkar film has – A hard hitting  and veritable subject ,coupled with engrossing performances . “ Heroine” , the much talked about film has been mired with controversies,since its inception- Aishwarya Rai’s dropping out of the project due to her pregnancy, barrage of accusations between the director and the actor , Kareena’s inclusion and her much talked about intimate scenes with the lead actors-  the film has ensured to keep itself in limelight, escalating the expectations of the cinegoers. So does the first look promises the hype it created?

From the looks of the trailer, there is not even an iota of doubt about its uncanny conformity with last years Blockbuster ” The Dirty Picture“, which won laurels and awards for her lead actress Vidya Balan. Heroine is apparently based upon the rise and fall of a  leading actress, showcasing her trials and  tribulations . The trailer vaunts of innumberable platitudes for film industry, with Kareena Kapoor ( with a rather plastic  look throughout), sashaying through the glitterati and media, sharing intimate scenes with lead actors Rampal and Hooda, and blasting the media at a conference. We can also witness Kareena gyrating in  a salacious track ” Halkat Jawani‘ , which seems a counter response to Vidya’s Dirty Picture hit track”Ooh La La

With a grim and sedate tone, “Heroine“bears a striking resemblance with “Fashion“and  promises another hard hitting flick from Bhandarkar’s stable, showcasing  Kareena’s desperate attempt for garnering critical acclaim, and ..a National Award may be !!

Watch this trailer for:  A veritable look at the film industry and Kareena’s  promising histrionics.
