The trailer of Vidyut Jammwal’s new actioner The Power is out. The film, in which Shruti Haasan also plays the leading role, is directed by Mahesh Manjrekar.
The first 30 seconds of the long trailer promise a romantic movie, but then it shifts gears. Someone close to Shruti’s character, perhaps her father, dies and she swears vengeance.
Most of the trailer consists of action scenes in which socialmediagossips are shot in the head, glass bottles are smashed on their heads, spikes are broken, blood splatters and a lot in slow motion – so that you can see everything in great detail.
Set in the 1990s, the film bears a strong resemblance to cinema of that decade – it is a violent fantasy of revenge like so many films of the time.
If that’s your thing, you’ll enjoy The Power. With Vidyut Jammwal in the movie, the action scenes are sure to be great. But if you want something substantial, look elsewhere.
The Power’s official logline reads: “Get ready to experience a story of love, betrayal, vengeance and power with Vidyut Jamwal & Shruti Haasan.”
The Power with Prateik Babbar and Jisshu Sengupta premieres on January 14th on Zee Plex, a pay-per-view platform, for 199 rupees.
