Ever since we have seen Shahid Kapoor with his ripped body in the first look of Udta Punjab we have been waiting for the trailer to come out. The think tank of Udta Punjab released the looks of the four major characters of the film – Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh, and all of them have impressed us. We knew Udta Punjab revolves around the subject of drug addiction. So we were expecting a grungy, punke-y and edgy thriller
So here’s our verdict! the trailer begins with a spine-chilling statistics. 70 per cent youth in Punjab is into drugs. Shahid Kpoor plays Tommy Singh–the rockstar who is ruining the youth. Singh abuses drugs and is stoned all the time. Is he influencing the youth of Punjab and ruining them? Kareena’s character looks feisty as she tries her best to stop drug infiltration into the region while Alia’s character looks deliciously complex.
Director Abhishek Chaubey keeps the drama dark, engaging and entertaining. Sasha absolutely nailed it in the scene where cops land at his doorstep to arrest him. While a hapless Satish Kaushik lies that the man that they are looking for has left for London, Sasha comes out in the open abusing the folks, completely doped and unaware of the fact that the cops have come to get him arrested. All in all, the trailer looks intriguing and performances superlative!
