Sushant Singh Rajput, Manoj Bajpayee, Bhumi Pednekar, Ranvir Shorey and Ashutosh Rana starrer Sonchiriya is out with its teaser video. The film, directed by Abhishek Chaubey, looks gritty and grimy from the word go. The teaser of the film hints at all the elements that a dark dacoit drama is expected to have – rough characters, tough locations, rusty mood and some powerful performances.
The one minute 21 seconds video shows all the prominent characters of the film. It establishes Bajpayee’s character as the leader of the gang, while Sushant and Ranvir are the strong members. The teaser also gives a glimpse of Rana’s character and hints at him being the most wicked of all. While Bhumi appears just for a brief moment in the video, her expressions convey fear and definitely leave an impact. Watch the teaser of Sonchiriya here:
The film is set in the 1970s and tells the story of dacoits in Chambal. This is for the first time Sushant would be seen essaying the role of a dacoit. The actor has got the maximum number of films releasing next year. Sushant will be seen as many as five times on the big screen with his first outing being Sonchirya in February next year.
