When the teaser of Nadhoo Khan was released a few days ago, expectations went soaring high from its makers as it denoted sheer cinematic brilliance. Also the fact that the film is touted as the first period Punjabi film to be shot in ‘wide-frame’, it’s natural to pin hopes on it to deliver something really outstanding.
Now that the trailer of Nadhoo Khan is out, one can comfortably assume that this one is going to be a class-apart film with not just eye-candy shots, good-looking actors, delightful background score but also a strong storyline as well.
Featuring Harish Verma and Wamiqa Gabbi in the lead, the film is about a man called ‘Nadhoo Khan’, who is shown to be a wrestler belonging to the pre-independence era. The trailer shows how Nadhoo is a simpleton – a village boy inclined towards light-hearted side of life (Friendships, humour, romance) in the early part of the film but awakened all of a sudden by the elderly men of his family who expect him to be a top-notch wrestler completely focused on his sport.
Without revealing the storyline much in the trailer, the makers have conveyed a message. A message that Nadhoo Khan (directed by Imran Sheikh) is not to be taken lightly at all. It seems to be a well-made film – capable of being loved by the audience that yearns for cinema providing a good mix of entertainment and cultural awareness. The song ‘Multan’ from the film has already won praise on the Internet and suggests a possible link to Pakistan’s Punjab in the movie.
If you’re not bored of period movies, Nadhoo Khan is definitely a film to look forward to. The film presents a fresh jodi of ‘Harish Verma and Wamiqa Gabbi’ on-screen and this is Harish Verma’s first period movie.
Produced by Loudroar films and Music Tym Productions, Nadhoo Khan releases on April 26.
