Akshay Kumar’s highly awaited historical drama, Prithviraj, has finally unveiled its trailer today. The film, which marks Kumar’s second big screen release of the year, had witnessed more than a few snags in its release and is finally coming to theatres next month. The film’s trailer definitely got netizens talking, who took to Twitter to voice their thoughts.
Many people were impressed by the trailer’s grandiosity and visuals. The film sees Kumar as the titular king, while Manushi Chhillar plays Sanyogita in the film that marks her Bollywood debut. The duo’s scenes in the trailer was appreciated by many users, some of whom posted the ones they found impressive. A scene in which Kumar is seen holding a bow and arrow in mid-air seemed to be a favourite among viewers.
Some viewers talked about how the trailer gave them ‘goosebumps’, with one even going so far as to say that it was the ‘best trailer of any Indian movie’ and the film seemed to be mounted on an ‘outstanding’ scale. Another called it ‘impressive’ and talked about how the film is ‘important’ for Bollywood and hoped that the film will attract audiences.
But there were a few who were not impressed by the trailer. One user remarked how the VFX was ‘average’ and criticised the casting of Kumar as the king. Another said that they expected better from director Chandraprakash Dwivedi. Some users also talked about how the trailer got many facts wrong.
In addition to Kumar and Chhillar, the film also features Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood in pivotal roles. While Dutt essays the role of Kaka Kanha, Sood stars as Chand Varai. The film is produced under the banner of Yash Raj Films.
Prithviraj will be released in theatres on June 3.
