If people wrote Anurag Kashyap off after the failure of Bombay Velvet, they might well have to eat humble pie by the time Raman Raghav 2.0 hits the screens. The ace director is back with his new venture, which is touted to be a psychological thriller. The trailer shows that there is more to the film apart from a mentally deranged man on the prowl, mindlessly sho0ting or chopping someone’s head off. There are plenty of knots and interesting character sketches in the trailer, which is expected from a Kashyap film but the star of the show clearly looks to be Nawaz, who is the life and blood of this film. he Nawaz-Kashyap combination worked wonders in the Gangs of Wasseypur series and the director-actor duo have raised the bar here again.

There is mystery, intrigue and long camera shots. It is probably a technique that was implemented keeping in mind an outsider’s perspective of how a common man would feel wile looking at a creepy looking man, armed with a heavy object. The promotions of the film (The classy Phantom Films are the producers) had a slow build up to the trailer. The makers released 4 parts, each having the psychopath (Nawaz) attacking his targets, each belong to a different strata of society.

There is a police angle to the story but Vicky Kaushal, the other central character to the film is shown to be more of a gangster than a guy setting out to abide by the law. Infact, he despises it because of his lifestyle. But Nawaz stays with you throughout. The trailer starts with Raman taking about the route that he took to become a dreaded criminal.
