Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much-awaited film Gangubai Kathiawadi trailer is out today. Starring Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn, the trailer looks larger than life.
“Jab shakti, sampati, aur sadbuddhi ye teeno hi aurtein hai to inn mardon ko kis baat ka guroor” to establish this and show you the power of the feisty moon prostitute of Kamathipura, here’s the Gangubai Kathiawadi trailer. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is here with his stylistic expression taking us back into the 60s when a brothel, Kamathipura became a hub of the political landscape. With different shades of white being the prominent mood, costumes of the 60s, neon-light, a big red bindi, and a payal, the trailer looks like Bhansali’s usual way of telling a larger-than-life story.
Gangubai Kathiawadi is based on a chapter from Hussain Zaidi’s Mafia Queens of Mumbai and follows the story of Gangubai, a real-life sex worker who became a savior. Other than Alia Bhatt donning the hat of the feisty moon queen of Kamathipura, we can see Ajay Devgn as Lala, Vijay Raaz as Hijra Razaibai competing with Gangubai, and Jim Sarbh, and Seema Pahwa in pivotal roles. With SLB’s maximizing aesthetic mode, this much-awaited film is finally hitting theatres on February 25, 2022 after being postponed a few times
With the tonality and set-up in the trailer, the film tends to remind you a lot of Ranbir Kapoor’s Saawariya but somehow is still different. Nevertheless, Sanjay Leela Bhansali films make you enter into a world that can only be enjoyed on a 35 mm screen. And here’s us hoping that this film brings in a large number of people back to theatres.
