It is the drama of the dacoits that will keep you glued to the second trailer of this movie. Sonchiriya gives us an insight into the cruel and unforgiving land of Chambal, and going by the latest trailer of the movie, we can tell that this movie is going to give us some severe goose bumps to say the least.

Sonchiriya has been directed by Abhishek Chaubey, the one who had also directed Ishqiya. And we already know how well this director brings out the gruesome parts of the shady underworld. This is the first time we will see the M.S Dhoni of Bollywood, our very own Sushant Singh Rajput, in a brand new avatar. His rugged look of a dacoit does not let us take our eyes off of him. Bhumi Pednekar has shown what a real talent she is as she also portrays a very tough character. Other than these two immensely talented actors, Sonchiriya will also see the legends of Bollywood, Manoj Bajpayee, Ashutosh Rana, and Ranvir Shorey.

Wedding and the intrusion of dacoits in the wedding opens the second trailer of this movie. What strikes us most here is that the dacoits have an ethical touch to their otherwise ruthless nature. They choose to leave the venue not just after looting and plundering, but after they have blessed the bride with a token of one hundred and one rupees. That smile swiped all across Manoj Bajpayee’s face as he asks someone where the bride’s room is, is something that will creep you out as it is very scary.

Introducing Sushant Singh Rajput as Lakhna, Manoj Bajpayee as Man Singh, who has the quintessential laugh of a dacoit, Ranvir Shorey as Wakil Singh, and the feisty Bhumi Pednekar as Indumati, Sonchiriya definitely is blessed with an ensemble cast. And it is this cast, and the previous track record of director Abhishek Chaubey that tell us quite a bit about the greatness of the movie.

Interestingly, the movie has some great dialogues. The one which grabbed our attention in the second trailer of the movie was the dialogue between Sushant Singh Rajput and Ashutosh Rana. It seems that they have put in a great deal of thought into the dialogues. The trailer shows Sushant asking Ashutosh Rana if he was a rebel or a policeman to which Ashutosh Rana instantly replies that this should not be asked again as the rifle of the rebel takes offence at the slightest of remarks. Now that is some witty play of words. The relentless play of guns, the dust laden Chambal, and the ruthless killings depicted in the movie shows what the world used to be when dacoits ruled. Ashutosh Rana, who plays the role of Gujjar, very wittily points out towards the end of the trailer that any intelligent person would not be a daroga. While that could mean a lot of things, the immediate thing that comes to our mind is that even the tough policemen are tired of running after the ever powerful dacoits.

Getting to watch the Chambal of 1975 to 1977, in which the dacoits ruled the area is going to be a treat to the eyes. Another striking thing about the promotion of the movie is that the film makers are distributing placards with meanings of various unknown Hindi words used in the film, so that it becomes easy for the audience to understand.

This story of inter-gang war between the cops and the dacoits releases today, and we are sure that the film will be a major hit of the year.
