Bachchan Pandey is Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film directed by Farhad Samji. The film also stars Kriti Sanon, Arshad Warsi, Sanjay Mishra, and Pankaj Tripathi.
The trailer was also shared with great enthusiasm by Kriti Sanon and Jacqueline Fernandez, who play the female leads in this film. The film is an official remake of the 2014 Tamil language film ‘Jigarthanda’ directed by Kartik Subbaraj.
Akshay Kumar is cast as the notorious character in the action-comedy, while Sanon is set as a journalist who aspires to be a film director. Sanon tells her friend, actor Arshad Warsi, that she has decided to make a film on the dangerous mobster Bachchan Pandey in the three-and-a-half-minute clip. While Warsi initially dismisses the notion, his friend persuades him to join her on a perilous expedition to meet the mobster and cover his life story. As the two friends risk their lives to record the famed mafia on tape, what follows is a comedy riot laced with moments of severe fear and danger.
In the film, actor Akshay Kumar shows off his wild side with ease and looks highly promising in a vicious outfit. The 54-year-old delivers an outstanding performance as a vicious gangster who kills people in the blink of an eye and is also accused of murdering his own girlfriend, Jacqueline Fernandez. Along with some intense action sequences, the fantastic actor injects just the proper amount of comedy into the film, turning it into a full-fledged masala entertainer.
But the trailer has also been criticized for the wrongful portrayal of some characters in the film.
For instance, Pankaj Tripathi’s characters refer to people as Safed Patthar, Kala Patthar, and granite for the sake of ‘jokes.’ The writers of such films must immediately quit the idea of making people of various skin tones the object of their jokes.
In the film’s trailer, Sanjay Mishra, a well-known supporting actor, is insulted by Prateik Babbar’s character just because he stutters when speaking. Not only that but he’s also known as ‘buffering chacha’ for all the wrong reasons you can think of. It reminds us of Golmaal, India’s most popular comedy film series, in which a character’s condition is used as a punchline. Also, the trailer itself revealed all the plotlines of the story and was one minute too long. There is nothing new left to see in the film.
