Ten seconds into the trailer of Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, and you can tell that lead actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's character has several shades — a man with swagger, an out and out romancer, a gun-wielder who lives for thrills.

The title of the film is befitting of its titular character, because while he is violent assassin who takes on contracts, he also has a unusual charm about him. This is not surprising, since the actor himself said that he drew inspiration from James Bond while enacting the character.

"Hum toh outsource karte hai yamraj ke liye," he says, when asked what his occupation is. From the dialogue of the police inspector featured in the trailer, what we can glean about Siddiqui's character is that he was trained to kill for the police, and now, much to their ire, kills for others.

Of noteworthy mention are the visuals of the film. What will remain with you are the shots of Siddiqui's face smeared with red colour, the crude but aesthetically shot sex scenes and the shot where all of Divya Dutta save her face is buried into the ground.

We are also introduced to his 'chela', who he challenges to a murdering spree as a part of a contract to kill. The black humour is evident and effective in the shot when There's also an element of suspense; at one point in the trailer, Siddiqui's character falls to the ground and we hear a gunshot.

Babumoshai Bandookbaaz seems to inhabit the world of Gangs of Wasseypur and Babumoshai himself is similar to Siddiqui's character from the Varun Dhawan-starrer Badlapur. It also stars Bidita Bag, Jatin Goswami, Shraddha Das, Anil George, Bhagwan Tiwari, Murli Sharma, Jitu Shivhare and Navin Tyagi, and is slated to release on 25 August. It is directed by Kushan Nandy.
