Movie Preview Saawariya
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is back with Saawariya after the critically acclaimed Black (Amitabh Bachchan, Rani Mukherjee). The promos of Saawariya have Bhansali’s signature style all over it.
With Saawariya he launches two star kids, Rishi Kapoor’s son Ranbir Kapoor and Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam Kapoor. The movie also stars Rani Mukherjee and the dashing Salman Khan.
Clashing this Friday with Shahrukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om, the film is a Romantic Musical based on Fyodor Dostoevsky’s short story White Nights.
The story is about two lonely youngsters who accidently meet each other.
Raj (Ranbir Kapoor), is a dreamer. He spends most part of his day at home, creating riddles, solving them and writing poetry. He loves arguing with his landlady Miss Disa (Zohra Sehgal), with whom he shares a love-hate relationship.
But one night this lonely guy stumbles upon the charming, shy and mysterious Sakina (Sonam Kapoor), a girl with a secret past.
Their unexpected encounter under a bridge progresses to friendship and an impromptu romance in a remote town near Shimla.
They spend four nights together. With the passing of each night, Raj falls more and more in love with Sakina and tries to win her heart, but Sakina sees him as a friend and begins to trust him enough to share her secret.
But when Sakina reveals why she cannot reciprocate his love, Raj is unable to accept her past and is driven into a world of madness and romance.
Will the same bridge where the two lovers met become the bridge that separates them?
Music plays a key role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film and for Saawariya he has teamed up with newcomer Monty Sharma, nephew of music composer Pyarelal (of Laksmikanth – Pyarelal fame). Monty has done a great job in composing the love songs, mujras and qawwallis.
This is Hollywood production house Sony Pictures first Bollywood movie!
