Oof! That was it! First, I got you the teaser poster . Now, it's the turn of teaser. Yes! I have finally come up with the first ever teaser of one of the most awaited films this year: our beloved MADHURI DIXIT's comeback vehicle: AAJA NACHLE.
AAJA NACHLE is a Yash Raj Film produced by Aditya Chopra and Yash Chopra. It's the second Yashraj film for Madhuri 10 years after Yash Chopra directed her in the blockbuster musical DIL TO PAGAL HAI with Shah Rukh Khan. This film is directed by reputed cinematographer Anil Mehta, whose body of work include KAL HO NAA HO, VEER-ZAARA, KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA. This film is written by Jaideep Sahni, who rocked it up in the last YRF release yesterday, Shahrukh Khan starrer CHAK DE INDIA. He too has an excellent track record in terms of scriptwriting.
Interestingly, Anil has not handled the camera for this film. Instead, the job is given to DON cinematographer Mohanan. The music is composed by Chak De India duo Salim-Sulaiman and lyrics by Jaideep Sahni and Jhoom Barabar Jhoom star Piyush Mishra. In place of Madhuri's all-time guru Saroj Khan, Vaibhavi Merchant handles the mettle of the choreographer. This film also stars Kunal Kapoor, Konkona Sen Sharma and Akshaye Khanna in a guest appearance. I wish SRK too could be roped in!
This film is about a theatre-actress who is trying to bring smile and joy in her small town. Different! It seems to be an all-heroine movie without any opposite male star. And the film works entirely on the stage musical format. Hope, this doesn't mess like JAAN-E-MANN or JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM.
Okay, let's come to the teaser know. Practically it doesn't say or show much in 42 seconds. It's basically the "Madhuri is back!" logline. Still, it needs a paragraph or two to be talked about. First, a kind of semi-classical/folk tune of flute is heard with the mixture of ghungru. Then the scene fades from black to THE dancer in silhouette dancing in front of a studio moon. The step is classical and you know who it is. The next few seconds shows the dancer showing up her dancing skills in rhythm with the music. Then the screen flashes, "Madhuri Dixit is back" and the title card is shown. Then the evergreen face with a bright chuckle enters the frame; a beauty worth dying for. And claps and whistles!! I wonder what is the reaction in a mediocre single-screen theater! Can't imagine!
Now, I have a very special interpretation of the teaser and the wallpaper. There's Madhuri in front of the studio moon and stars scattered all over the sky, right? Some of the stars are very bright. Now, this seems to be a self-referential style. Why? The stars are there. They're bright. Okay! They resemble some stars of this Bollywood like Aishwarya, Abhishek, Preity, Lara et al.They stay in the sky round the year (astronomically not right, but stars can be seen everyday in the sky). The moon (Mads) is not in the sky everyday, but when it comes in the sky, it outshines every star! Ain't that amazing? Now watch the trailer and rate.
