Lets just say, I watched the Rockstar trailer 10x and the Agneepath trailer 15X.
First off, here they are:
Yes, they were both outstanding.
Rockstar was exciting and romantic, while Agneepath was violent and exciting.
First off, lets talk about Ranbir's film. His acting is on point as usual and his transition from the village Jatt into a global rockstar is too. Nargis, surprisingly, is acting better than half of the biggest heroines today. Even though she is a part of the new, firangi Hindi actresses, I like her! She doesn't look or act like a outsider. Imtiaz ( my favorite director) is great as usual, but I was NOT impressed by the romance in the beginning. Online, everyone is raving about the "palangtod" but I thought it was so cheesy. The beep scene was also totally blah. It dissappointed me. Come on, Imtiaz! I thought you didn't put those types of scenes in your movies, you always do something "hatke", but I am hoping for some REAL hardcore romantic and cute scenes, which I know I'll get. However, I really loved the way Nargis was on the back of Ranbir's motorcycle and had her eyes closed in the breeze. The music was just a bonus.. this Tum Ho song might become my anthem; it sounded gorgeous. Sadda Haq was okay, "Sadda haq aithe rakh" is a killer line, it means "Put my right, right here". However, the melody wasn't really working. I can see it getting really popular, but only because of the picturization, lyrics and movie. For me, the end is what did it. Everything was high voltage and grand. Ranbir running, gargantuan crowds, crazy media and screaming. Loved the END! I would give the trailer a 3.8/5.
Now, Agneepath... talk about too many wow factors.
Hrithik has become Salman. Sanjay actually looks evil (not just trying to act like a villian), Priyanka is invisible and Rishi is a bad ass! OMG! I did not even think that was possible.
Hrithik is beating people up like its his job and it is so new and different for him as an actor. He has full potential to become a action hero. His acting was also beautiful. Sanjay was freaky! Especially, when he was dragging the body to his tunnel and his end laugh. It gave me goosebumps. Rishi looked so different, I guess he was shaved and pulling a girl around...Rishi has never done anything like that in his movies...so cute! haha. And Priyanka, she came and went...she never just comes and go's. Though, I am sure her character will have some significance. The visuals were also endearing. The Ganpati festival was so Indian! AWESOME! Hrithik is such a good actor that his eyes are actually glowing while watching the festival. I loved the red color spreading everywhere, but then the dark and gray theme coming back. The film has a perfect balance of Indian-ness and Western-ness (if those are words). The religious music and violins in the back makes the euphoria increase even more. Though there was not much plot in the trailer, it passes because there is plenty of time until the film releases. I'll give this one a 4.5/5.
Excited for both of these A-lister films, this is the best time for Hindi movies! I LOVE IT!
I know I rant, but that's what films do to me...
See you all later <3
