Sonchiriya Teaser: Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar’s Film Promises To Be A Gritty Drama
The makers of Sonchiriya have dropped the teaser of the film a while ago. The venture stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey and Ashutosh Rana in lead roles and tells the tale of dacoits of central India. The narrator makes it clear that the dacoits are looking for ‘Son Chiriya’ (golden bird) but why are they doing so remains to be told.  

The actors and the background score ensure that you are engaged and are curious about what lies in store. Talking about choosing the subject, director Abhishek Chaubey had told News 18, “Bandits have been around for ages. They are criminals but it’s a huge tradition -- their society and life. There are so many layers to it. Why they were the way they were why they were bandits but they called themselves rebels so what was it that motivated them to live like that. It’s a part of our history and culture and I’m really shocked that we’re not telling more stories about them. In the West, it’s an established genre which is still being explored.”

He added, “I wanted to shoot in Chambal because it’s beautiful. I was completely overwhelmed by the society that existed and what were their concerns. I wanted to make an action film that explores their soul.”

Addressing his choice of actors (Sushant and Bhumi), he had said, “One thing that stars do is actually the cost of the film become rational if you have stars like Sushant and Bhumi out there. I'm not saying that they were the only two people who could have played this role. It's a false thing to say that. But you make that choice. Also, we have entered that era where I personally find the young generation of actors extremely competent and committed. I want to blur the line between mainstream and arthouse cinema. Let’s make cinema with dignity which can appeal to all of us.” Sonchiriya is all set to hit theatres in February 2019.
