Varun Dhawan’s upcoming romantic drama October is out and it swings to the rhythm of those intense, wintry love stories that hit you right in the feels.
Directed by Shoojit Sircar and co-starring debutante Banita Sandhu, October seems to pack quite an emotional punch and mark a major step-up for Varun as an actor.
In the trailer, we are introduced to Varun’s character, Dan, a luxury hotel housekeeper who catches the fancy of a co-worker named Shiuli (Banita). Hints of a budding (and seemingly one-sided) romance are thrown in before a sudden twist spins the story in a very different direction.

Judging by his performance, Varun Dhawan seems to have thoroughly shed his mainstream mould and dedicated himself to the nuances of a Shoojit Sircar film. In the little that we see of her, Banita Sandhu impresses with her acting and screen presence. The music and locations of October are moody and lush, and the cinematography looks breathtaking.
By all means, fans of Varun Dhawan are in for a huge treat in October, so are admirers of Shoojit Sircar’s offbeat yet relatable style of cinema.
Written by Juhi Chaturvedi and produced by Rising Sun Films, October is slated to release on April 13, 2018.>
