Is ‘Sonchiriya’ following the trail of ‘Bandit Queen’ to be the best dacoit drama of the year?


2018 has been a year that gave us some commendable and unforgettable Bollywood releases. Movies like Stree, Andhadhun and Simmba have made the year a remarkable one for all of us. Now that 2019 has already arrived, it has a lot of movie surprises wrapped up for all of us. Movies like Uri and Manikarnika are in the queue for their release.

One of the movies that we all are waiting with a calendar in our hands is Abhishek Chaubey’s directed movie Sonchiriya starring actors Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhoomi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey and Ashutosh Rana. The movie depicts a tale set in the war zone of Chambal. The characters speak about life in the circumstances.

Recently, the trailer of the movie was released introducing us all to the violence, rage and war of Chambal. Till now, through Bollywood, we were forced to believe that dacoits in Chambal travelled ridden on horses. However, with the movie, this is the time to get rid of the misconceptions. Director clears all the confusions by making us meet the dacoit drama of the year without any involvement of the horses and finally introduces us to the truth that there are no horses in the Chambal valley.

After Shekhar Kapoor’s movie Bandit Queen, Abhishek Chaubey’s Sonchiriya is a dacoit drama where dacoits are not scampering around on horses for war. Director of the movie with the hard work of actors has been successful in creating a quintessential Chambal onscreen. Styled in enormous fury and anger the lead actors of the movie are totally unrecognizable.

Amidst the blood and bullet shots, one can easily get a glimpse of humour as the trailer steps forward to its end. A couple of dacoits are seen wondering whether they will be served with mutton behind the bars. To which the other one says, “Why only mutton? The jailor will send his daughter every Sunday for you."

The story is the brutality of existing inequality running through the veins of the generations and now when the imbalance is tried to be rectified, it is too late. The rebels of the Chambal have finally accepted their place and are ready to fight against everyone to secure the place and survive the crime in between enormous dust.

The trailer at some definite moments takes us back in the time and makes it all nostalgic reminding us of late Sunil Dutt’s Mujhe Jee Lene Do.

To watch the story unveil furthermore, we have to wait for the movie to release on 8th February 2019. Let us know your views in the comment’s section below and stay tuned for more entertainment related updates.
