The man behind Bollywood movies like Rustom, A Wednesday and M.S Dhoni: The Untold Story, Neeraj Pandey is set to present his upcoming film Aiyaary with us. The makers have just recently released the much awaited trailer, and this movie is nothing like we've ever seen before. Aiyaary features Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee, Rakul Preet Singh, Naseeruddin Shah, Pooja Chopra and Anupam Kher.
The film is scheduled to release on January 26, 2018 with PadMan.
The three-minute-long trailer will give you an insight into the relationship of a mentor Manoj Bajpayee and his protegee Sidharth Malhotra. Both the actors, carry the intense look and set the tone of the film. Adding to the elements of the thriller are versatile actors Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher. Majorly, the film looks like the battle between two army officers who have their own ideologies and way of getting things done.
In the trailer, Manoj tries to gauge the meaning of the words “Aiyaar” and “Aiyaary” and for him ‘aiyaar’ is someone who remains in disguise to fool others.
You might think about the 2008 release A Wednesday from the same filmmaker and Naseeruddin’s last dialogue where he says one should not poke a poor man takes back to the climax of A Wednesday where he tells Anupam Kher that he is just a ‘stupid common man’.
On a related note, Aiyaary might face some competition on the box-office, against Akshay Kumar and R. Balki's Padman. Akshay Kumar and director Neeraj Pandey have collaborated on some successful projects in the past which includes films like Special 26, Baby, Rustom and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
