Critically-acclaimed actor Manoj Bajpayee is in a supporting role alongside Ranvir Shorey. This also marks the first collaboration between Sushant and Bhumi, who are seen donning the outfit of dacoits in the trailer. The rebels are looking for a ‘son ki chiriya’ (a golden bird). Ashutosh Rana, also an acclaimed actor, is playing the main antagonist in the film. Bajpayee had played a dacoit in one of his earliest films, Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen, in 1994.
A teaser for the film was released exactly a month ago on December 7. It opened with a voice-over by Bajpayee, showcasing a village which is ruled by dacoits.
This isn’t the first time the story of the rebels of Chambal region hits the big screen. In 2012, Paan Singh Tomar, a film about an Army officer who turned into a rebel took Bollywood by storm. Irrfan Khan’s captivating performance in the title role won him huge critical praise and the film was appreciated by one and all. Sonchiriya is set to hit theatres on February 8.
