Shaitaan: A Spine Chilling Crime Thriller Starrer by Ajay Devgan and R Madhavan
“Main Atal Hoon,” a deep exploration of the life of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee is promised. The late leader’s political career will be included in the story.
“The leader you know but the man you didn’t” is the opening line of the 3:37-minute trailer. The first scene shows Pankaj Tripathi back in his office while he is being informed by a second person that Kargil is in danger and that things have gotten worse. This establishes the movie’s mood.
There are brief glimpses of numerous significant political occasions that have influenced the nation throughout the trailer. It will chronicle the experiences of Atal Bihari Vajpayee during the Emergency, Ramjanmabhoomi, Pokhran, the Lahore Bus Yatra, Kargil, and the establishment of the Bharatiya Janta Party.
There are a lot of solid lines in the trailer that attempt to make a point. Still, Pankaj Tripathi’s poor character portrayal makes it impossible to ignore. If not for the prosthetics, it would have seemed he was portraying a different character in one of his films, one in which he is a middle-class family patriarch. Sadly, the versatile actor has failed his character and himself by bringing the baritone and accent from his prior roles into this one.
Pramod Mahajan, Arun Jaitley, and Sushma Swaraj are also introduced in the trailer. These characters, along with others, seem to have the personality of a cardboard box at best. They need to be given the necessary depth or subtlety in their portrayal. The Bharatiya Janta Party is discussed in the movie, but the prime minister of the day is left out. The narrative
It is focused on retelling the well-known story of Nehru and Indira Gandhi to highlight Vajpayee’s political views. There are also images in the trailer that serve as a reminder of historical events in the nation.
Ravi Jadhav, who has won National Awards for his Marathi work, is the film’s director. The movie “Main Atal Hoon” will open in theatres on January 19, 2024.
