Things haven’t been going too well for Anurag Kashyap lately. But he is now in the mood to bounce back. In what seems like a hurried ill thought-out move, Kashyap has dropped an announcement-teaser for his first film after he was accused of sexual misconduct.
Sadly, the promotional video of the film entitled Dobaara tells us nothing about the film that Kashyap wants to make with Taapsee. Is it a suspense film? More like suspense about what Kashyap wants to make. When I asked Kashyap what he could tell me about Dobaara, he replied, “Nothing. I prefer people to not know much about my film before the trailer comes out."
Anurag should know audiences go for only the films that they like in the pre-release promos. Being mysterious about your product is not the best way to get attention.
In that case why put out such a tacky video? The brief dreadfully shot video shows Taapsee lolling at home when Kashyap “shows up” on her television offering her a new film.
Let’s hope the proposed film Dobaara turns out to be far more enticing than its introduction which smacks of a slapdash presentation. Neither Taapsee nor Kashyap’s heart seems to be in it.
