The trailer of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra starrer Photograph is out. The two minutes 34-second video shows beautiful chemistry between the two stars who play the lead role in the film. Photograph is directed by The Lunchbox fame Ritesh Batra. The trailer has met with good response with the audience especially amazed by the romance conveyed more through silent gazes than dramatic dialogues.
The trailer shows Nawaz in the role of a photographer who clicks tourists at the Gateway of India for money. He bumps into Sanya’s character one day and convinces her to pose for him. The picture that he clicks changes everything between them. Later, in one scene, Sanya’s character, Noorie is shown explaining how she found herself more beautiful in that picture and it appeared to her as if she was somebody else. That one photograph leads to more meetings between the two and the romance begins. Watch the trailer here:
Photograph got recently premiered at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival and received wide applause. The event was attended by Sanya, Nawaz and director Ritesh.
Earlier, talking about having both the stars in his film, Ritesh told Times of India, “Nawaz has a real innocence about him that he brings to the character, and Sanya has a way of saying things without words, she’s a very meticulous and detailed performer. So they fit these parts, I was lucky to find them.” He added that his film is about two people who help each other be aware of the corners in their hearts that were unexplored before. He said, “The movie is really about the corners of our heart that only others can help us find, and these two actors do a wonderful job of revealing and keeping things from us.”
Photograph is slated to hit the screens on March 15.
