Sonchiriya trailer: Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee are gun-wielding 'baaghis' in dacoit drama
Sonchiriya is set during the 1975 Emergency and traverses the beehads or ravines of the Chambal valley, infamous for the terror of its dacoits.
The makers of Sonchiriya, which revolves around dacoits of Chambal valley, unveiled the trailer for the film on Monday.
The film is set in the 1975 when the Emergency was declared across the country. Sushant Singh Rajput, Manoj Bajpayee and Ranvir Shorey play the baaghis or rebels terrorising the region. Rajput is Lakhna, a member of Shorey's character Vakil's gang. Bhumi Pednekar also joins the pack who traverse the dry, mountainous ravines or beehad of Chambal. Ashutosh Rana plays a policeman, tasked with the responsibility to cleanse the area of all the bandits, and who vows to kill them all.
Bajpayee has previously starred in Shekhar Kapur's dacoir film Bandit Queen in 1994. With the release of Paan Singh Tomar release nearly six years ago, Sonchiriya could usher in the forgotten genre of dacoit drama in Bollywood. This film also marks the first collaboration of Pednekar and Rajput.
Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, who has been at the helm of films like Udta Punjab, Dedh Ishqiya and Ishqiya, and presented by Ronnie Screwvala's RSVP movies, Sonchiriya is slated to release in cinemas on 8 February.
