Abhishek Chaubey has always ensured that he gets the milieu in his films authentic and on point. His last outing Udta Punjab was a blazing example of the same. If Sonchiriya’s teaser promises one thing loud and clear, it is that! Gritty, earthy and rooted, this one looks like the film to watch out for in Feb 2019.
The cast increases the excitement – always a pleasure to see Manoj Bajpayee and Ranvir Shorey in grounded settings. Bhumi Pednekar seems like a good choice, and looking forward to what Ashutosh Rana does (he has one of the most impressive first flashes in the teaser). Also really wish Sushant Singh Rajput creates fireworks with this one, the man deserves all the success and more!
One last call-out – really liked the earthy, muted color palette, as well as the use of Hindi in all title credits! Makes it more rooted! This Sonchiriya looks all set to fly high!
