Makers of ‘Mulk’ starring Rishi Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu, Prateik Babbar, and Rajat Kapoor released the first look poster of the film and it is very intriguing. Still belongs to some court room scene of the film in which Rishi is donning a completely avatar as an old Muslim who seems to have religious beliefs. Taapsee is present in the avatar of a lawyer, which is weirdly giving some ‘Pink’ vibes though the picture suggests that it is an intense scene going on. Star cast is full of extraordinary actors like Ashutosh Rana and Manoj Pahwa as well.
Rishi Kapoor is on some acting streak at this half of his career as he is portraying roles that he never did when he was the superstar. His last film ‘102 Not Out’ showed him in a very different look as a 75 year old man and he is also doing the role where he is in a ‘Jaat’ look though name of the film is not out yet. Rishi is being extremely experimental in his approach towards his roles and most people could learn a lesson from him and Bachchan about how to sustain a career this long.
Mulk is directed by Anubhav Sinha, who is better known for making ‘Ra.One and Tum Bin’. He is helming the command of a social drama after 4 years since he directed by ‘Gulaab Gang’. Anubhav is on a bad streak of making not so great films but a film is only as good as the script. A star cast of such elaborated actors who all have strong on screen demeanor are enough to make a great film only if the script is finely written and the reason they all signed the film suggests that they saw content potential in it. This very credible drama will release on 27 July, 2018.
