Aurangzeb - Preview

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Aurangzeb makes the corrupt cop theme interesting. For that itself, it becomes worth a watch despite being a little drab and a little stretched out in the end.

When I first heard of the film Aurangzeb, I wondered if it was going to be a periodic film. When I saw the suited Arjun Kapoor on posters, I wondered if it was about a son ousting his father from his proverbial throne - a business, a political party or even as the head of a mafia gang. But, from the trailer, it looks like another version of Don.

After this initial disappointment though, there is some solace in the fact that the trailer didn't really look too bad and the film has Rishi Kapoor. I hope he is given a nice, meaty role to keep the interest going in Aurangzeb. There is also a chance that their take the story is different from what we've seen earlier.

Another interesting bit is that the film is produced by Yash Raj Films. You don't really associate a crime film with this banner. But, then again, neither should have Tashan been associated with this banner (or any other!)

I am 50-50 on this one from its promo material. How about you?

Music Reviews:
glamsham - "2.5/5" IBN Live - "'Aurangzeb' has interesting compositions and the music is well put together, but not an all round soundtrack as it won't appeal to the masses. "
Milliblog - "Aurangzeb has an interestingly thematic score, led by Vipin."
