Trailer of Rohit Shetty’s “out-and-out action masala entertainer” Simmba just dropped and we can only say W-O-W.
The three-minute trailer begins with Ajay Devgn in a special appearance in his Singham avatar. But if Bajirao Singham was all about honesty, Ranveer Singh as Sangram Bhalerao is the complete opposite. “Main police wala bana paisa kamane ko. Robin Hood ban ke doosre ka madad karne ko nahi,” he says in the trailer.
Ranveer, as the unabashedly unscrupulous cop, is in cahoots with the antagonist, Sonu Sood. He smashes bones, mints money and romances Sara Ali Khan.
All is going well. Until the woman he considered his “chhoti behen” is brutally raped. As she breathes her last in the hospital, Ranveer realises in horror that the rapists are associated with Sonu. His conscience awakens and he wages war against the rapists.
Don’t miss Ajay Devgn’s smashing (quite literally) entry at the end of the trailer.
Simmba is an official remake of the Telugu hit, Temper, starring Jr NTR and Kajal Aggarwal.
However, director Rohit Shetty has maintained that it is not a scene-by-scene copy, and the script has been tweaked to suit the Hindi audience. According to him, only 20 per cent of the original storyline has been retained.
“Simmba is a full blown masala film. It’s an entertainer. I believe masala films are the holy grail of mainstream Hindi films… I am very lucky and I am very blessed that I am under the guidance of the king of the genre. Rohit Shetty is the gold standard in the masala film genre. I am making a foray into this genre in his film so it could not get any better,” Ranveer had earlier told .
Produced by Karan Johar and Reliance Entertainment, Simmba opens in theatres on December 28.
